Astell & Kern AK Jr Details
Astell&Kern AK Jr Portable High-Resolution Audio Player: like carrying a small concert in your pocket
- The AK Jr simplifies complex features of Hi-Fi audio to a smartphone-like experience.
- The simplified design exemplifies the original concept of the AK Jr.
- The raised screen provides secure grip and slims down the profile from 8.9mm to 6.9mm.
- The full aluminum body and textured aluminum volume wheel allows smooth one-handed operation.
The Astell&Kern AK Jr gives you the opportunity to comfortably listen to high resolution audio, anytime and anywhere.
Although the Astell&Kern players were portable their relatively large size made them less convenient for some. The AK Jr’s compact design delivers the highest sound quality while fitting comfortably in your pocket.
Increased output and lower impedance
The AK Jr's output level of 1.95 VRMS represents a 14% increase over the AK100's 1.5 VRMS. Our engineers have reduced the output impedance to 2 Ohms for a significant gain in sound fidelity from the AK100’s 22 Ohms.
As the AK Jr supports many various types of earphones and headphones, a separate amplifier is unnecessary.
DSD to PCM
The AK Jr supports DSD, the digital audio format widely considered to be the next-generation in high resolution audio. Listen to a greater range of audio through DSD.
The AK Jr can also function as an external DAC (sound card) when connected to a PC or Mac via USB. When playing music stored on a computer, the AK Jr delivers the same high level of audio quality while eliminating the need for a built-in sound card.
The AK Jr features a 3.1-inch LCD touchscreen that is about 1.4 times larger than the AK100’s LCD. The smartphone-like full touch capabilities offer responsive interface and the larger screen displays more information.
64GB + 64GB microSD
The AK Jr features 64GB of memory to store more music than ever before. Supporting microSD cards up to 64 GB, the AK Jr is capable of offering a whopping total storage capacity of 128 GB!
The combined 128GB of internal memory and external microSD card capacity is capable of holding more than 1,250 high resolution audio. (Based on one, 4-minute song @ 24 bit/96 kHz, taking up 90MB)
