The Astell&Kern is the ultimate portable high-fidelity audio system capable of playing Mastering Quality Sound (MQS) from music mastering studios.

Product Description

This item is By Order only, please contact us for more information.

The AK120 not only meets the standards of Hi-Fi audio, but also utilizes two DACs (digital to analog converters) maximizing the dual-mono set up to completely separate and isolate the left and right audio channels. As a result, the AK120 delivers broader a dynamic range and wider soundstage so that you can enjoy an even more realistic music experience.  Enjoy the great MQS music up to 14 hours, which was made possible by the same ultra-low-power design that was unveiled with the AK100.

The Professional Equalizer (PRO EQ) Preset Re-creates the Feeling of Live Music

After the Astell&Kern engineering team listened to various genres of music for hundreds of hours, the AK120’s PRO EQ preset was created to help to users recreate the live concert experience in their pocket. Through countless hours of testing, listening, and development, the Pro EQ preset and the Dual WolfsonDACs of the AK120 lets users clearly experience the live soundstage of the music.

A good sound comes from a recorded piece of music, expressed in the way the artist intended to be heard. The focus of the PRO EQ preset is to create the soundstage through the music. For example, with the PRO EQ preset turned on for a quartet performance, the position of each of the four individual musicians can be heard clearly.

64GB of Internal Flash Memory + Dual Micro SD Card Slots = Up to 192GB of Storage Space

The AK120 comes with double the internal flash memory of the AK100 and provides 64GB of high-speed internal flash memory. The dual Micro SD memory card slots are capable of supporting up to 64GB of memory in each slot. Store up to 192GB of high-resolution audio with the AK120.
