The Walkman provided by Japanese Sony Company is a potable audio/video player for playing high-quality music, audiobook, or videos. Users are able to download songs to Walkman and bring it to play music everywhere. For many Apple Music lovers, it would be quite convenient if Apple Music could be played on Sony Walkman, which means users could enjoy high-quality Apple Music on Sony Walkman instead of bringing their iPhone everywhere. So, how can we stream Apple Music to Sony Walkman?
If you want to transfer Apple Music to Sony Walkman directly for streaming, you would certainly fail. Why? Since Apple Music has adopted DRM protection to protect all its songs and digital contents. Being encrypted by DRM, users could not transfer or copy Apple Music songs to other non-Apple devices and media players. Even on Apple devices, you have to authorize the device with the Apple account which you have subscribed for Apple Music membership. Also, there is a maximum amount of up to 5 devices that one account could authorize.
Since the limitation of DRM, if you want to transfer Apple Music to Sony Walkman, the first thing you have to do is to remove DRM from Apple Music songs.
