About the Astell&Kern AK100:

 

The Astell&Kern AK100 is the ultimate portable high-fidelity audio system capable of studio Mastering Quality Sound (MQS) support and playback. MQS (24bit, 96kHz -192kHz) is considered as the digital music format with the most amount of information and commonly saved as a lossless 24bit WAV/FLAC format. The difference between MQS and MP3s/CDs (WAV) can be heard and felt because the sound is distortion free because no data loss occurs within the MQS (24bit) source. The Astell&Kern AK100 does not need external MQS encoding and results in a more refined and pure sound.
