The AK70 has been reborn as the AK70 MK2 through Astell&Kern’s accumulated know-how

Dual DAC separates the left and right audio channels from input to output

The advantage of a dual DAC player has now become available to everyone. The AK70 MK2 is the first model from Astell&Kern to be equipped with a dual DAC for under a thousand pounds. Its separated channel circuit design offers less noise and interference, yet adds more fidelity and audio output power, to create a bigger sound stage with clearer imaging when paired with your favourite headphones or powered speakers.

Higher audio output with the same refined Astell&Kern sound signature

With a substantial power output of 4.0Vrms from the balanced output, the AK70 MKII can drive a wide range of heavy, hard-to-drive headphones without a problem thanks to Astell&Kern’s latest audio design technology.

While maintaining the natural and neutral tone and sound signature Astell&Kern is famous for, the newly designed audio circuit creates authentic sounds by exceeding previous Hi-Fi Audio specifications, including SNR, Crosstalk, and THD+N, over previous models.

The powerful AK70 MK2’s sound quality is sure to please even the most discerning music aficionado.
