Brand Spotlight: Astell&Kern


Hey everyone, I wanted to take a moment to highlight one of our partnerships with Astell&Kern. On top of just being great people to work with, they make great stuff and care a lot about the Audiophile Community. Astell&Kern has relentlessly innovated with their lineup of high-end digital audio players. Even in the age of smartphones, their high-end players put together a powerful hi-fi experience stuffed with the latest technology, which can’t be found anywhere else. Founded in 2013 from iRiver, Astell&Kern aims for capturing uncompromising sound in a portable package. I’m always excited to check out their booth at trade shows like Rocky Mountain Audio Festival. I know Astell&Kern will have the state of the art portable setup for my IEMs. In celebration of our transition to, Astell&Kern is offering five limited-time drops of some of their exciting products: three premium digital audio players (AK70 MKII, AK100 MKII, & AK240 Blue Note), the XB10 bluetooth DAC/Amp unit, and the Astell & Kern and Beyerdynamic AK T1p headphone.
Check out our collection of Astell&Kern products here: These will be live for the next 8 days so get them while they’re hot. What do you think of Astell&Kern? Like ‘em? Got a story to share? Tell us in the comments below. Thanks!

Are those products coming back to stock?
I'm highly interested in the new Kann Cube, not that I realistically expect it here any time soon but that's the first DAP in a while that interests me enough to bring me back "into the DAP fold".

How about a drop for the L1000?

I have their SR15. It's a great little DAP. Unfortunately all of their dap designs share the same flaw..... incredibly sharp corners and edges ?? Appears some designer seems to think it looks cool no matter how uncomfortable it makes the devices to hold.

Good products (although my AK/JHA Michelle IEMs are basically falling apart within a year), but awful customer service. Zero response/interest in helping customers. Will avoid now. Shame.

Old models which we see constantly here. Not a good drop. Come with more recent players for a sharp price if yiu really have this good relationship with them.
Great !
LOVE their DAPs.
