Product Code: AK300

฿35,000

Enjoying Music

While succeeding the state-of-the-art DAC and scalability as applied to the AK380 and AK320, the latest model has improved accessibility by being priced at a reasonable level.
AK4490's Single DAC-DAC, DSD-to-PCM Playback, Parametric EQ with 20bands 0.01dB, 200 Femto Second VCXO Reference Clock, Exceptional Expandability, DLNA-based AK Connect App and Metal Touch Sensor Home Button.

AK300 vs. AK320 vs. AK380



24bit 192kHz bit to bit Playback

AK300 is capable of bit-to-bit playback up to 24bit, 192kHz.
32bit audio is downsampled using a sample-rate converter (SRC). In addition, DSD 64/128 can be played back via conversion to PCM.

* 32bit, 384kHz is downsampled to 24bit, 192kHz, and 32bit, 352kHz is downsampled to 24bit, 176kHz for playback.
* DSD 64/128 is converted via DSD-to-PCM to PCM 24bit, 176kHz for playback.

PEQ (Parametric Equalizer)

A parametric equalizer (PEQ*1) was implemented in the AK380 to deliver detailed adjustment of the original sound, and an audio digital signal processor (DSP) was added to aid in this process.
This frees up CPU cycles previously needed for calculating graphic equalizers (GEQ), allowing more detailed and accurate calculations via the dedicated DSP.
The audio DSP expands the existing 10-band, ±0.5 dB graphic equalizer (GEQ*2) to 20-band, ±0.01 dB to more precisely adjust the frequency and gain (dB) as well as more accurately specifying the frequency range via Q value adjustments.


What is Parametric Equalization (PEQ*1)?

Parametric equalization refers to the ability to increase or decrease the volume within the Q value range. A Q value is a frequency range relative to a selected frequency. The frequency range decreases when the Q value increases and vice versa.



What is Graphic Equalization (GEQ*2)?

Graphic equalization divides the audible frequency register into several registers and increases or decreases the level of each register with a volume slider to adjust the respective frequency's characteristics. The switches of the volume slider are connected like a graph to visually determine the frequency characteristics, hence the name "graphic equalizer."




Equipped With a Femto Clock to Deliver True Original Sound


Astell&Kern implemented a voltage-controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO) high-precision clock with a reference jitter value of 200 femto seconds*3.
Femto clocks are commonly used in high-end audio systems, and the clock is measured in high-precision femtosecond units (one quadrillionth of a second).

What is VCXO?

A VCXO, or a voltage-controlled crystal oscillator, is a type of crystal oscillation device that creates oscillation frequencies. External environmental stimuli, which in this case mean voltage inputs, influence the frequency value. Adjustments to the voltage input tunes a precise frequency value.

What is Jitter?

Jitter refers to the undesired deviation in time that occurs in a periodic signal. In this case, jitter is the error that occurs in the reference clock required to perform the sampling in digital audio equipment.

By utilizing a femto clock, the AK300 is able to create a more accurate frequency value and make fine jitter corrections.
As a result, the AK300 faithfully reproduces analog sound closer than ever to the original source when transmitting a digital signal as an analog signal.


USB DAC


The AK300 supports USB DAC functionality.

The AK300 can be connected to a PC or Mac via USB for use as a USB DAC that supports PCM/DSD.
When playing back music stored on a PC or Mac, the Single-DAC is able to deliver richer audio of outstanding soundstage and resolution well beyond the limits of a built-in sound card.

* When using the AK300 as a USB DAC, its PEQ settings are not applied, and output up to 24bit, 96kHz is supported.
* DSD 64/128 is converted via DSD-to-PCM for playback.



AK Connect App


Astell&Kern has further enhanced DLNA functionality via the AK Connect app.
Wireless networking DLNA (version 1.0) connects to a NAS or PC, and is easily controlled with a smartphone or tablet through AK Connect.
Source files on a PC or NAS can be freely transferred and streamed without the hassle of turning on the computer and physically connecting with a cable.

If on the same access point (AP) network, music files on a PC or NAS can be played back via DLNA.




DMP (Digital Media Player)
Finds a list of content on a media server for selection and playback.

DMC (Digital Media Controller)
Finds a list of content on a media server and establishes a connection to a playback-capable device (renderer). By default, a DMC establishes a connection between a media server and media renderer and controls content playback-related operations.

DMS (Digital Media Server = Network Server)
Actually stores the media content to be shared. When connected to a network, the DMS transmits/distributes the media content for other devices to stream or download.

DMR (Digital Media Renderer = Network Player)
Connects to a media server via media controller for content playback.



Pressure-sensitive Metal Capacitive Touch


The AK300 features the same metal touch interface as the AK380 and AK320.

The Metal Touch functions as a home key and 
interfaces with the device via pressure-sensitive touches.


More Expandable Options


The AK300 can be expanded to a variety of devices through the micro-USB and balanced audio out ports located at the bottom of the product.

It can be connected with the AMP as well as professional high-impedance headphones for high output and USB for data transfer and charging.
It can also be connected to the Cradle for balanced audio functionality as well as the CD-RIPPER to conveniently rip audio CDs.

AK380 AMP vs. Other AMP







Integrated Design


The AK380 AMP was designed as an extension of the light and shadow theme of the AK380.

Continuing this design concept, the AK380 AMP retains the subtle changes and details in the emitted brilliance as light flows across its surface. The diamond pattern engraved into the volume wheel of AK380 is repeated on the amplifier's rear light for design continuity.

The area of the amplifier in contact with the AK380's volume wheel reproduces the design's angle of reflection for comfortable wheel operation. The amplifier's light shining delicately through the gaps in the reflected surface visually accentuate the music’s mystique.

Unlike conventional amplifiers, the AK380 AMP was designed from the ground up as a single entity when combined with the AK380. The wheel on the rear of the amplifier that connects the two devices is a representation of the volume wheel seen throughout Astell&Kern products and expresses our unique design identity.

A New Approach to Music

We at Astell&Kern have been relentlessly searching for just the right raw material to complement sound.

Stainless steel has given us unwavering strength Duralumin, a material used in aircraft, has given us high rigidity and light weight Aluminum has given us excellent wear resistance

We selected copper as the principal raw material for the newest variant of the AK380 to convey the message that this is more than just a medium for transmitting music - it's an “instrument”.

Witness the birth of a new instrument - The AK380 Copper

When Music Becomes More Than Just Sound




Copper, as an alloy with tin, nickel, or zinc, is used as a raw material for wind instruments, which form the central part of an orchestra. These wind instruments transmit deep and heavy sounds through tubes of copper alloys.

Sound with a sense of depth
Sound with a sense of weight
Sound with a greater balance


In addition, copper is the second most electrically conductive1 metal after silver. With superior electrical conductivity and shielding performance than typical metals, the AK380 Copper is able to deliver a different sound signature than the existing duralumin-based AK380.

* The copper used in the AK380 Copper boasts a 99.9% pure elemental property.


Copper


AK380 Copper is finished in a two-step process using a 5-axis milling machine, and approximately four hours of processing time is required per unit.

Due to the highly-ductile nature of copper, the shavings tend to curl inwards rather than out when creating thread lines, causing the ends of milling tools to become damaged or broken. Because of this finicky nature of copper, the material requires more hands-on labor by an operator compared to other materials such as aluminum.

Uncoated raw copper quickly oxidizes from exposure to outside elements, which makes mass production very difficult to manage.



Fully processed copper is approximately 3.2 times greater in metal weight when compared to duralumin. 
While a 530-gram block of raw material is milled to create the 55-gram frame of a duralumin-based AK380, a 1.7-kilogram block of copper is processed to create the 175-gram frame of an AK380 Copper.

Comparison between processed Copper and Duralumin



After two stages of milling, the finishing process begins to smooth the surface of the product and create a hairline-brushed finish. 

The finishing process requires 30 minutes to an hour for a skilled worker.

* A process in which the surface of an object is polished into its final form.


To maintain the natural feel of copper, AK380 Copper requires more time and effort during the external coating process than any other Astell&Kern series product.
External coating is completed in a four-stage process. Skilled workers continually monitor the processing time at each stage of coating.

[4-Step Coating Process] Degreasing / Etching / Film Application / Drying

[Stage 1 – Degreasing] In the degreasing stage, oil and other debris that occurred during processing and finishing are removed electrically.



[Stage 2 – Etching] In the etching stage, an oxide film is applied to the exterior surfaces to highlight certain areas that were marked via processing, finishing, and laser marking.



[Stage 3 – Film Application] Upon discovering that the look and feel of copper is largely dependent on the film application, we invested a large amount of time testing various applications.



[Stage 4 – Drying] The surfaces of the frame is dried after the film application, and each unit is immediately packaged and sent to the assembly process.


Wrapping the AK380 Copper in Natural Leather




The leather case for the AK380 Copper is made of a natural type of leather known as V1, which is produced in Turkey and used by many leading luxury brands. The V1 is generally used in the making of handles, wallet interiors, and accessories, representing the highest quality in natural leather. It’s most famously used for the handles of Louis Vuitton bags. Unlike other brands that apply a coating on the surface of the leather, the case for the AK380 Copper is not finished with a surface coating in a rather difficult production process to truly capture the unique personality and characteristics of the user.

The AK380 Copper's leather case maintains the same color for the first six months of use and tans gradually depending on the use, care, and style of the user. Generally, the color in the vegetable tanning of leather is determined by the additive. The chestnut component used in the AK380 Copper's V1 leather case results in a caramel color.



The V1 Story

The V1 is produced by the Sepiciler Caybasi tannery in Turkey.
The Sepici tannery was founded in 1930 before the leather industry had yet taken shape in Turkey. The company started with leather caps and uppers of lambskin shoes and eventually grew into a successful company in the Yesildere region, being renamed to the Sepici and Sons Collective Company.
The history of the Sepici tannery is intertwined with the founding of the Republic of Turkey and later became incorporated, evolving along with the country's industrialization. The company celebrated its heyday in the 1970s under the name Sepici Caybasi Leather Ind., Inc.

The company soon grew into the largest of its kind in Turkey and was selected as the best tannery for 10 consecutive years since 2003. It is now one of the most successful tanneries in the global leather market.
