Astell&Kern AK100II High Resolution Single DAC Audio Player

Astell&Kern AK100II High Resolution Single DAC Audio Player

“Astell & Kern AK100 II: Portable Pleasure   So I have a confession to make: I’m a DAP “noob”. I’ve basically been old school with my on-the-go Hi-Fi, using iDevices and a third party amp (HeadAmp Pico, RSA Audio Hornet, et cetera…) or even an Amp/DAC combo like the Beyerdynamic A200p. Then I tried the Astell & Kern AK100 II. While I’ve heard some lower priced DAPs, I’ve never...” --MacedonianHero

Astell & Kern AK120

Astell & Kern AK120

“ I bought this player because I wanted “the best” portable DAP money could buy. Even though I now have a portable experience that rivals or might even surpass my desktop setup, it has not left me without considerable headaches and occasional feelings of buyer’s remorse.   Let’s remember that this is a $1300 product and when you include Canadian duties and taxes I’m in ~$1600! I knew...” --rataplan

“Introduction/Preamble                       There are very few things about my life that I would consider certainties. Skepticism is my natural reaction to information that is not founded in some sort of established fact. Amplifying this behavior is the last several years of post grad work that has bent my mind into doubting...” --eke2k6

“I have had my AK380 for over a month now and its time to post a review   Before I had the AK380 I had an NW-ZX2 for 6 months, an AK240 for nearly two years and the AK120 before that, so yes, I like the A&K players.     I have been listening at least 4 hours a day at least 4 days a week since I got it   I have paired it with Beyerdynamic T5p's single ended, Shure...” --piercer

Astell&Kern AK120 TITAN MQS Duel DAC Audio System

“I've had my eye on the Titan for a while now, largely because of the storage capacity, but the price had put me off. Just before Christmas it hit my price point, probably because of the newer AK models, and I decided to treat myself, I'm really glad I did!   I already own an Ibasso DX-100, which is far and away the best portable player I've ever had, and I didn't want to pay another...” --dc-k

Astell & Kern AK100 Mastering Quality Sound (MQS) Portable System DAP

“Build & Usage:   Good looking, very nice feeling player, it looks like a really sold build and it's all metal construction. Not much to say about it, you can check pictures. I wasn't satisfied with overall usage of the player because of quite a few flaws. Screen isn't so good both when it comes to viewing angles, colors and resolution, it is sufficient but again, for this kind of...” --Tail

Thin and Light The AK Jr project gives everyone the opportunity to comfortably listen to high resolution audio, anytime and anywhere. Although the Astell&Kern was a portable device, its relatively large size made it less convenient for some. The AK Jr's compact design delivers the highest sound quality while fitting comfortably in your pocket. The AK Jr is like carrying a small concert...
