Astell & Kern

Astell & Kern AK Digital Audio Players (DAP)


Astell & Kern digital audio players (DAPs) are the ultimate portable music source, bringing you Master Quality Sound (MQS). Their aim is to provide natural and original sound without distortion, offering a compelling presence and accentuating all the tiny details you wouldn't notice from other music players!


With the debut of the MP3 format, music lovers sacrificed sound quality for the convenience of being able to carry their music wherever they would like. However, MP3s are heavily compressed versions of original sound files which are designed to save space. This compression means you only hear inferior vocals and instruments, and the full soundstage and ambience from the original recordings is missing.


After agonizing over theses issues, Astell & Kern developed solutions to ultimately bring back the original quality of the music (MQS) back to artists, recording engineers and professionals.They are now admired by music lovers from many countries, including USA, China, Japan, UK, France, and many more around the world.
