    Astell & Kern AK240

     

    Be The Ultimate.

    With the AK240, Astell & Kern have taken their goal to deliver sound “exactly as the artist had intended” a huge step further. By providing a dual DAC setup, they have enabled better L/R channel separation with clearer sound. However, they still felt the need to improve the audio quality.

     

    After countless hours of research and testing, Astell & Kern discovered the answer was to create both a balanced output and native DSD playback through the Dual DAC setup. Now with the AK240, they can dare to say they have gotten “that much closer” to the sound quality of the original recording.

     

    In order to support Native DSD, MQS, and massive audio files, the AK240 needed a storage upgrade. With 256GB of internal memory, about 2,500 MQS (24-bit/96kHz, 4 minute-long, 90MB) songs can be saved. With the addition of a 128GB microSD card, the AK240 can support up to a total memory capacity of 384GB. The back of the unit is composed of real carbon fibre plates, which blend well with the overall AK240 design.

     

    Premium Stainless Steel Edition...

    The AK240SS is constructed with stainless steel to take full advantage of its inherent benefits. Firstly, stainless steek is a strong, non-corrosive metal that does not easily bend or damage. Secondly, damage can be restored through polishing. Thirdly, the entirely pure stainless steel body offers a marked improvement in sound quality through more ground points on a wider area.
