New iRiver AK70

post #1 of 1013
Thread Starter 
Just saw this on iRiver Japan's tweet. Seems like an AK Jr-like player called AK70? This is coupled with the Mojo, & looks nice too.

Apparently retails for $599 according to :-

Photos shamelessly taken from iRiver's tweets :-




And this one taken from Fujiya's tweet (size comparison to the Jr)

Some specs from their FB page - 

 

- 2.5mm balanced out (also 3.5mm line & optical out)
- 64GB internal memory + 1 microSD slot
- DLNA based AK connect App (Wi-Fi)
- USB Audio digital out (Dop 2.8/5.6MHz, PCM Max 384 kHz)
- 29% lighter, 17% smaller, 1.9mm thinner compare to AK100ii
- Powerful, more than ever! (2.3Vrms output level which is 35% higher than AK100ii and same as AK380)
- No bundle case, but three different color accessory case available. 
- US$599
- available in July 2016

At least in my opinion this is almost certainly for those Mojo fans with the option to go standalone if required. The form factor is almost matching (AK70 a little longer) & with USB out support is kinda telling.

Can you stream Qobuz with it?

USB Digital out !  Finally an A&K DAP that can connect to a WooAudio WA8 :D 

 

As for QOBUZ streaming, I am afraid that this is still not the case since A&K's Web Site only mention Groovers' streaming service :(

i heard the overall spec is similiar to the opus #1, interesting to see AK at this price range, like the small form factor also.

btw really shocked to see uchida aya's song playing there biggrin.gif

Why oh why 64 + 1 slot? Otherwise an ideal transport.

The product page on their web site makes it look very "minty" in color. I like it.
