The Astell&Kern AK380 Stainless Steel is a portable high fidelity music player designed to deliver the truest and most natural sound possible.
Beautifully crafted from a single slab of high grade stainless steel, the AK380 is an audiophile’s dream, featuring dual digital-to-analog converters to provide crisp details and an impressive dynamic range.
The luxury player offers the perfect excuse to let go of your smartphone and listen to music on a dedicated device guaranteed to get the best from your digital music collection.
That’s because it has the ability to play up to 32-bit, 384 kHz high resolution files without conversion or compression, and comes with a generous 256GB of internal memory, which can be boosted to a whopping 512GB using a microSD card.
A&K’s advanced interface offers access to a range of sound settings, including equalisers and multiple playback options, plus CD ripping, USB audio and connectivity to streaming apps such as Tidal and Spotify, all controlled from a 4-inch LCD touchscreen.
This isn’t the first time A&K has used premium materials to great effect on its portable players. A striking AK380 copper edition was released last year and others in the range are wrapped in carbon fibre. Just 200 stainless steel examples are being made, so act quick to get your hands on one and future proof playback for years to come.
