Astell & Kern AK120 impression thread - Page 46

post #676 of 682
Hello everyone,

I have bought AK120 and I have a question about the battery.
According to AK website or Amazon, AK 120 can survive 14 hours with 24-bit playback after a full charge.
But yesterday when I burned in with my new PSB M4U1 with full battery on AK120 from 9 PM. When I waked up this morning at 6 AM. I pressed the button and was received the notice about run out of battery. It means that AK can't survive 14 hours as they announced. It's about 9 hours.

So please share with me the battery time of your AK120. Many thanks.

I think most of us here got 9-10hrs battery for our 120, so yours should be ok....

 Try 24/44 line out and it probably makes it.

Yep. I get around 9hrs on my 120 and it drops to 7-8hrs when I play a number of DSD albums.

Less load on the device equals longer battery life. Fewer bits to process and no current draw.
