Astell & Kern AK70

 

Music Friend In My Pocket

The AK70 allows you to experience the enjoyment of high resolution audio, whenever and wherever you may be. AK70's DAC, based on the market-proven CS4398 chip from Cirrus Logic, has been used for years in hi-fidelity audio components and in the 2nd generation of Astell & Kern devices.

 

It can be used as a USB DAC, which can double as an embedded sound card by connecting to a PC/Mac through the USB port. It supports resolutions of up to 24Bit / 192KHz natively, and can happily down convert 32Bit tracks for easy playback. This provides much richer sound, through superior ambience and resolution. In addition, DSD 64/128 can be played back through conversion to PCM.

 

The Astell & Kern AK70 has a 3.5mm traditional 3 pole (TRS) jack for a wide variety of headphones. The AK70 also supports the 2.5mm 4 pole balanced output (2.3 Vrms). This means can be used with a variety of balanced earphones and headphones made for Astell & Kern.

 

AK70 features a USB audio digital out - a first among Astell & Kern devices. You can connect a diverse range of digital-input portable amps through USB. The AK70 can transfer DSD in native through DoP. It can also convert DSD into PCM for output for portable amps that do not support DoP.

 

The AK70 comes equipped with the "AK Connect" feature which can be connected with network-ready Astell & Kern devices. It is also appointed with wireless networking DLNA (Ver. 1.0), which makes it easy to work with NAS/PC on the same network and through an AK Connect app supporting smartphone/tablet computer.

 

Cases designed for the AK70 are available here.
