<b>? AK100's Next-Gen Evolution - A New Standard in Listening to Music: AK100? ?</b></p> <b>? Single DAC and Balanced Out</b></br>... Although the dramatic depth in sound quality delivered by the Balanced Out was proven in our flagship model, we wondered if the same benefit could be gained by implementing the Balanced Out with a Single DAC. The newly designed demo board delivered the ear-pleasing sound quality we needed. The value of a Balanced Out with a Single DAC is confirmed with every musical note. </p> <b>? 5.6 MHz DSD Support<b></br> We realized DSD playback through a firmware upgrade for the AK100. However, only 2.8 MHz DSD was supported (88.1kHz PCM conversion/downsampling) due to hardware limitations. Now, 5.6 MHz DSD is supported via 'DSD to PCM' by utilizing a Dual Core CPU. </p> <b>? USB DAC</b></br> The AK100 II also functions as an external DAC (sound card) when connected to a PC or Mac via USB. The AK100 II's sound quality is available for stored music on any PC or Mac as it serves as a built-in sound card. </p> <b>? Network Playback</b></br> With the AK100 II, it's no longer necessary to turn on the PC, search for music, connect a device, and transfer files. Simply connect the AK100 II to your PC or Mac via Wi-Fi on the same network and download or stream music wirelessly. </p> <b>? Full Touch Screen</b></br> The new AK100 II utilizes a 3.31" AMOLED screen, an 82% increase over the previous screen's size. Now, users have access to more on-screen information than ever before. In addition, a full touchscreen means convenient, smartphone-style control. </p> <b>? 64GB + microSD 200GB</b></br> The AK100 II includes 64GB of internal flash storage. With the addition of a 200GB microSD card, the AK100 II supports up to a total memory of 264GB. read more

Closer to Original Sound After successfully launching the AK100 and the AK120 models, we asked ourselves, "What is the ultimate so...und quality?" After much consideration, we decided to move a step further with our goal, which is to deliver the sound "exactly as the artist had intended" for us to hear. Moving from the AK100 to AK120, we decided to provide a Dual DAC setup to create better left and right channel separation with clearer sound quality. We thought that the Dual DAC setup would be enough, but while developing the AK240, we felt the need to further improve sound quality in order to accurately reproduce the original sound recording. After countless hours of research and testing, we were able to find the answer. The answer was to create both a balanced output and native DSD playback through the Dual DAC setup. Now with the AK240, we can dare say that we have gotten "that much closer" to the sound quality of the original recording. What is DSD? DSD (Direct Stream Digital) is a digital audio file format originally developed for SACDs (Super Audio CD). Regular digital audio file formats such as PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) is separated into 65,000(16bit) to 16,700,000(24bit) of information on the Y axis, and 44,100(44.1kHz) to 192,000(192kHz) across the X axis for digital signals. DSD files have 1bit (0s or 1s) for Y axis and is separated into 2,800,000(2.8MHz) to 5,600,000(5.6MHz) of information for X axis. Compared to regular audio CDs with 16bit/44.1kHz PCM format, SACD's recording frequency goes up to 100kHz and the dynamic range goes beyond 120dB while maintaining sound clarity during the transmission. Native DSD Support One of the approaches we decided that would help us move a step closer to the original sound quality was to provide native DSD playback without having to convert it into PCM. This was indeed a difficult task. In order to provide native DSD playback on the AK240, we had to select a different DAC chipset. read more

Astell&Kern is the ultimate portable high-fidelity audio system capable of studio Mastering Quality Sound (MQS) Mastering Quality ...Sound (MQS) is an acronym of collective lossless & high-resolution audio source formats, typically in 24-bit/44 to 192kHz of bit/sampling rates. Because MQS delivers about 6.5 times more detail than a conventional CD format (16bit/44.1kHz), listeners can enjoy a better and a more realistic sound quality. 24-bit/44 to 192kHz is the music industry norm used in the mastering process during sound production. However, the result of high resolution music files has to be compressed down to 16bit/44.1kHz so it can be stored into a single CD due to the memory storage shortcomings (~700MB). To produce the MP3 format, the high-resolution audio is compressed even further to 128 to 320kbps for the convenience of file size. These compressions remove the enormous amount of the details of the original recording because of memory storage limitations and listeners will never be able to hear the details. AK100 MKII MKII is the lower output impedance version of the AK100 MKII with 3?. Equipped with the same high-performance Wolfson WM8740 24bit/192kHz DAC found in the AK100 MKII. Playback single-layer DSD formats with the version 2.30 system software. One of the world's highest performing 24-bit/192kHz stereo DAC AK100 MKII is the world's first portable digital audio device equipped with the Wolfson WM8740 DAC. Users familiar with LINN, ARCAM, and other high-end audio equipment (AV Receivers) actually have been listening to the Wolfson WM8740 high-performance 24-bit/192kHz Stereo DAC at home. With the Wolfson WM8740 DAC, the AK100 MKII achieves highest level of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and the lowest level of the total harmonic distortion (THD) performance. And with the WM8740 DAC, the signal to noise ratio of 110dB found in the AK100 MKII significantly improves sound quality. read more

<b>AK240SS The clear sound of stainless steel</b> <br> <br> Unlike the previous iterations that employed duralumin, the Astell&K...ern AK240SS is constructed with stainless steel to take full advantage of its inherent benefits. Due to the extremely difficult processing techniques and high costs when compared to aluminum, stainless steel is generally reserved to high-end timepieces. We at Astell&Kern have created the most special version of the AK240 to date using stainless steel to bring you only the best. <br> <br> One aspect of Hi-Fi and car audio absolutely cannot be overlooked. The ground eliminates noise that is inevitably generated by electrical signals in all products with electric circuits. Because the ground is one of the factors that can dramatically affect sound, it must not be neglected in Hi-Fi audio equipment such as the AK240.   <br> <br> On the contrary, the AK240SS takes advantage of the entire pure stainless steel body as ground for a marked improvement in sound quality over the previous iteration through more ground points on a wider area. <br> <br> Without any changes to the hardware or firmware, you will be able to experience a clearer, more focused sound previously unheard in the standard AK240. <b></b> <br> <b></b> <br> <b>Astell&Kern 240 Cradle (New Model PEM12)</b> <br> <br> Using the same Aluminum Body as the AK240, PEM12 can be used as a docking station, but also a USB DAC and charging station.  Silver-plated OFC cable was adopted and the cable thickness has been changed to meet each line's purpose. <br> read more

<b>Astell&Kern AK240 Case</b></p> ? Exceptional AK240 Leather Case</p> In order to raise the bar of the AK240 even higher, much at...tention was devoted to the selection of leather for the case. </p> Minerva leather, originated from Badalassi Carlo was chosen for the case. Badalassi Carlo was made by Professor Carlo Badalassi, who is known for his excellent skills with leather. </p> Unlike modern methods, he uses a traditional method of making leather that requires extensive time and devotion. His reputation is well-known among top expensive brands due to his focus on the leather quality over quantity. </p> The leather case for the AK240 was made from a process called "Full Vegetable Tanning". This traditional method has been used in Italy for over 200 years. The process brings out the special characteristic of leather while creating a natural tanning look. A variety of trees and plants are involved in this tanning process which takes about 40 days to complete and only the most experienced professionals in Italy possess the skills to do it. </p> This special leather material has a lot of oil in it that will allow the leather to shine the more it is used.

The primary goal of Astell&Kern has always been to deliver the original sound. They wanted even more people to experience the AK32...0 and its ability to deliver the original sound as intended. 24bit 192kHz bit to bit PlaybackAK320 is capable of bit-to-bit playback up to 24bit 192kHz. 32bit audio is downsampled using a sample-rate converter (SRC). In addition DSD 64/128 can be played back via conversion to PCM. PEQ (Parametric EQ)A parametric equalizer (PEQ) was implemented in the AK380 to deliver detailed adjustment of the original sound and an audio digital signal processor (DSP) was added to aid in this process. This frees up CPU cycles previously needed for calculating graphic equalizers (GEQ) allowing more detailed and accurate calculations via the dedicated DSP. The audio DSP expands the existing 10-band 0.5 dB graphic equalizer (GEQ*2) to 20-band 0.01 dB to more precisely adjust the frequency and gain (dB) as well as more accurately specifying the frequency range via Q value adjustments. Equipped With a Femto Clock to Deliver True Original SoundAstell&Kern implemented a voltage-controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO) high-precision clock with a reference jitter value of 200 femto seconds. Femto clocks are commonly used in high-end audio systems and the clock is measured in high-precision femtosecond units (one quadrillionth of a second). USB DACThe AK320 supports USB DAC functionality. The AK320 can be connected to a PC or Mac via USB for use as a USB DAC that supports PCM/DSD. When playing back music stored on a PC or Mac the Dual-DAC is able to deliver richer audio of outstanding soundstage and resolution well beyond the limits of a built-in sound card. AK Connect AppAstell&Kern has further enhanced DLNA functionality via the AK Connect app. Wireless networking DLNA (version 1.0) connects to a NAS or PC and is easily controlled with a smartphone or tablet through AK Connect. read more
