    Astell&Kern has stayed on the course, offering the truest and most natural sound possible. The new AK380 offers the most authentic sound from any digital music format with enhanced features that are sought-after.

    All of the AK380’s circuit design including the digital-analog converter (DAC) are ready for 32-bit processing to handle 32-bit music natively. Other products have traditionally used sample rate converter (SRC) method down sampling for playback. However, the AK380 is capable of playing back 32-bit, 384 kHz original sound without any down sampling. The result is the AK380 plays up to 32-bit, 384 kHz, any 24-bit music files, or double layer DSD 5.6MHz natively, without conversion or compression.

    Features :

    • 32-bit 384kHz bit-to-bt Playback

    • PEQ (Paramatic EQ)

    • Femto Clock

    • AK Connect

    • Pressure-sensitive Metal Capacitive Touch



    Paramatic EQ

    A parametric equalizer (PEQ) was implemented in the AK380 to deliver detailed adjustment of the original sound, and an audio digital signal processor (DSP) was added to aid in this process.

    This frees up CPU cycles previously needed for calculating graphic equalizers (GEQ), allowing more detailed and accurate calculations via the dedicated DSP.

    The audio DSP expands the existing 10-band, ±0.5 dB graphic equalizer (GEQ) to 20-band, ±0.1 dB to more precisely adjust the frequency and gain (dB) as well as more accurately specifying the frequency range via Q value adjustments.

    Femto Clock

    Astell&Kern implemented a voltage-controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO) high-precision clock with a reference jitter value of 200 femto seconds
    .
    Femto clocks are commonly used in high-end audio systems, and the clock is measured in high-precision femtosecond units (one quadrillionth of a second).

    By utilizing a femto clock, the AK380 is able to create a more accurate frequency value and make fine jitter corrections.

    As a result, the AK380 faithfully reproduces analog sound closer than ever to the original source when transmitting a digital signal as an analog signal.

    AK Connect

    Astell&Kern has further enhanced DLNA functionality via the AK Connect app.

    Wireless networking DLNA (version 1.0) connects to a NAS or PC, and is easily controlled with a smartphone or tablet through AK Connect.

    Source files on a PC or NAS can be freely transferred and streamed without the hassle of turning on the computer and physically connecting with a cable.

    If on the same access point (AP) network, music files on a PC or NAS can be played back via DLNA.

    Pressure-sensitive Metal Capacitive Touch

    The AK380 is the first Astell&Kern product to utilize a metal capacitive touch interface.

    The pressure-sensitive Metal Touch home button responds to fine pressure changes so users operate the device with just a light touch on the metallic pad.
