The Astell&Kern AK100 Mk2 is the new low output impedance version of the AK100 portable high resolution audio player.  Capable of up to 24 Bit / 192 kHz playback of high resolution audio files and now single layer DSD formats (with system software version 2.3) this small player has raised the bar for what is possible with portable hi-fi.  

Equipped with the Wolfson 8740 digital to analog converter chip, this player is the first to put the world’s best performing high resolution DAC chip into a portable player.  This delivers extremely low signal to noise ratios (SNR) as well as extremely low levels of harmonic distortion (THD) to a portable player.

Expandable memory allows you to take your entire music collection with you.  In addition to the on-board memory of 32 GB, the AK100 Mk2 supports two additional micro SD cards, making the internal memory expandable to 96GB.  This is critical when you are dealing with high resolution audio files that quickly take up a lot of space.

An intuitive and responsive touch screen interface makes the AK100 Mk2 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.

These features and many more make the AK100 and AK100 Mk2 the new standards for portable high resolution players.

Note: The AK100 Mk2 includes a premium 100% genuine Italian leather case made by Buttero in the box
