Astell&Kern AK70 High Res music player.
AK70 is Astell&Kern's newest fall 2016 player. It has 64 GB onboard storage with support for micro sd cards up to 256 GB, works as a usb dac with your computer and can also play usb out to a high end dac. AK70 has 3.5mm headphone jack and a 2.5mm balanced output, typically used with high end earphones + a balanced cable for slightly improved sound quality.
Mainly though, the AK70 is the latest Astell&Kern player to have their typical warm, richly detailed sound, in a new smaller housing. The AK70 has the full operating system (ak Jr does not -its a big diff) and supports the ak cd ripper accessory as well as ak connect - it can play music at home from your home network. It also has a faster processor without the lag of the Jr.
AK70 has Bluetooth apt-x HD - with the matching XB10 receiver, and other products coming this year, you can send and receive equivalent up to 24bit/48k music files over Bluetooth.
AK70 uses the same closed and heavily modified android operating system as the larger ak300 series players, that is the most user friendly, easy to navigate, reliable system and with the most attractive layout of any player we've used. We have one or two set up in store and they are dead easy for customers to navigate.
AK70 will power full size headphones well and also makes a great sounding source, right out of the 3.5mm headphone jack, into a stereo or car system (want to hear your car system for real... line in from an AK player).
The volume control has 150 volume levels, making it easy to get great results with any earphone or headphone.
