NEW iriver Astell & Kern AK240 Portable Hi-Fi MQS Audio Player 256GB ~EMS(3-6days)


The AK240 is a high resolution portable audio player from Astell and Kern.  Enhancing nearly every internal and external element of their previous players the AK240 is capable of remarkable sonic performance.  Full support of 24 Bit / 192 kHz high resolution audio files and native DSD audio support.   This flagship player has Astell and Kern reaching closer than ever to their goal of delivering the music as the artist intended it to be heard.  

Equipped with two Cirrus Logic CS4398 digital to analog converter chips setup with an added exclusive XMOS chip that allows for Native DSD support.  This gives the AK240 an expanded soundstage and gives it the ability to deliver even the finest musical detail. 

Expandable memory allows you to take your entire music collection with you.  In addition to the on-board memory of 256 GB, the AK240 supports an additional micro SD card, up to 128GB, making the internal memory expandable to 384GB.  This is critical when you are dealing with high resolution audio files that can quickly fill your storage capacity.

An all new and even more intuitive and responsive touch screen interface makes the AK240 a breeze to use and makes finding your favorite tracks fast and easy.  Album art is also supported so it can display your favorite albums art while you listen.


'As The Artist Intended'
"'What is the ultimate sound quality?' 'Exactly as the artist had intended.' (...) The answer was to create both a balanced output and native DSD playback through the Dual DAC setup. Now with the AK240, we can dare say that we have gotten “that much closer” to the sound quality of the original recording."

Native DSD
"One of the approaches we decided that would help us move a step closer to the original sound quality was to provide native DSD playback without having to convert it into PCM. This was indeed a difficult task. In order to provide native DSD playback on the AK240, we had to select a different DAC chipset. Making the decision to change the DAC was not easy, but in order to reach our goal, we had to make a bold move which was to start from scratch."

Balanced Output
"There are 2 methods of transmitting analogue signals - through balanced and unbalanced outputs. (...) The balanced method has a few advantages over the unbalanced method. The first advantage is that the hot signal and the cold signal will remove the external noises received. The second advantage is increased output due to the 2 transmitted signals."

256GB Storage
"In order to support Native DSD, MQS, and massive audio files, we had to come up with the ultimate portable music player with 256GB of storage. With 256GB of internal memory, about 2,500 MQS (24bit/96kHz, 4 minute-long, 90MB) songs can be saved. With the addition of a 128GB microSD card, the AK240 can support up to a total memory capacity of 384GB."

MQS Streaming
"To listen to your favorite music, you no longer have to turn on your computer, search for your music, wait for the songs to download, connect your player via USB cable, and then wait for the files to transfer to the player. Now with MQS Streaming, you can easily download or stream music directly from the AK240 by having the unit and your computer connected to the same network."

"Even though the body of AK240 is just one piece, it goes through 12 stages of production until it is complete. The initial 6 stages involve the original materials being prepared, and the next 6 stages involve putting together all of those original parts. Each stage takes numerous hours which are worked on by our experts."
