Hello, I am selling my A&K Kann Alpha. It is in immaculate condition and includes all original boxing and accessories. Also included is screen protectors and a Miter case. The colour on the Miter case has smudged due to the original seller cleaning it with isopropyl prior to selling it to me.

I purchased this to simplify my home listening setup but have since reverted back to my Ifi idsd Micro and have recently purchased a Woo Wa8 so I no longer have a need for the Kann Alpha, I can use my phone to stream Tidal.

This was originally listed on headfi and eBay where I purchased this from. It was originally bought new from Amazon in October 2020 so is still under warranty and the invoice can be provided. I personally used it only once in the house.

The Dap has a solid and premium feels and sounds great with both iem's and full sized headphones with plenty of power.

Shipping to UK only.
