Introducing The New Astell&Kern AK Jr Portable Player!

Hi all,

I think it is fair to say that Astell&Kern have been focusing on the higher end of the portable market since they first launched their range a couple of years ago but with the imminent launch of their new AK Jr player they will well and truly have all the bases covered as this new and smaller AK player is going to be priced at a very competitive £399.

It pretty much covers the same bases as its bigger brothers, so it can play 24/192 files and DSD 2.8Mhz and can also double up as a USB DAC when connected to a computer.

It uses a Wolfson DAC and has 64GB’s of internal storage which can be expanded to 128GB’s with a MicroSD card, it also offers a 3.1 inch touchscreen, aluminium case and a very slimline design which is no bigger than a current iPhone, I can see this being very popular indeed.

Needless to say that we have our demo model on order and it is expected to be available towards the end of May, so not too long to wait.

Please find more information below on our website and a few pictures -
