AK70 MKII Portable Hi-Res Music Player - Blue
With a substantial power output of 4.0Vrms from the balanced output, the AK70 MKII can drive a wide range of heavy, hard-to-drive headphones without a problem thanks to Astell&Kern's latest audio design technology.
The newly designed audio circuit creates authentic sounds by exceeding previous Hi-Fi Audio specifications, including SNR, Crosstalk, and THD+N, over previous models.
The AK70 MKII plays any resolution of digital files up to 24-bit/192 kHz, bit-for-bit. 32-bit audio and single or double rate DSD can also be played, but it will be converted to PCM or downsampled.
The AK70 MKII delivers original sound using the 2.5mm 4-pole balanced output that Astell&Kern first pioneered on the AK240 (and other manufacturers soon adopted). The balanced out provides a more powerful audio signal with less noise interference.
A simple USB connection will allow the AK70 MKII to be used as a digital music storage device and/or pre-amp to output digital audio through USB.
Want to easily play back DSD on your computer? No problem. Using the PC's embedded sound card usually requires a complicated process to playback DSD data, but with the AK70 MKII, simply install our DAC on your PC/MAC and play DSD with ease.
AK Connect, a DLNA-based music control app, is available on the AK70 MKII and smart devices including your phone or tablet. You can easily control playback, volume, streaming over Wi-Fi and more with this free app from Astell&Kern.
The AK70 MKII allows users to rip CDs with ease by connecting our AK CD-RIPPER accessory. Our exclusive CD-Ripper can rip your CDs directly to the AK70 MKII with 100% error-correction. When connected to Wi-Fi, all metadata for the CD being ripped will be downloaded from the Gracenote™ database, and all of the tagging information will be stored for each album.
