Astell&Kern AK Jr Now On Demo!

Hi All,

 

Just a quickie to say that we now have Astell&Kern’s new entry level player on demo, the new AK Jr, At £399 it seems wrong to call it entry level as this really is a beautifully made product that just screams quality.

 

Compared to the other models higher up the range it is a much slimmer and lighter design with a different user interface but it is equally as intuitive and user friendly but most importantly it really does perform, it is perhaps not quite a refined as the AK100 but it will still run rings around an Ipod and also gives you the possibility to run all file types including DSD.

 

For me, if you partner this with the OPPO PM-3′s or Audeze’s new EL-8 headphones you really would have a very special portable system, of if you do want to get better sound try bolting on the OPPO HA-2 portable headphone amp or why not go the whole hog and add a Chord Hugo.

 

I have to say that the £250 - £600 area of the headphone and portable player market has really exploded and come alive over the last few months, the quality available now at these prices really is quite outstanding.

 

If you’d like to try any of the above combinations please get in touch to make an appointment. Below are some rather poor pictures of our demo AK Jr, the customer models don’t have the logo written on the front, although I think it is pretty cool :-)
