At the pinnacle of Astell & Kern's celebrated range of portable audio players, the AK380 is an exceptional product that takes the sonic possibilities of achievements in its class to unprecedented levels of excellence. Designed according to strictly professional criteria to meet the demands of the most demanding recording engineers, the AK380 combines the extraordinary technical sophistication of the South Korean manufacturer with a construction and finishes worthy of authentic luxury. Prodigious in terms of its technical capabilities, the AK380 stands out first of all for its ability to process bit-by-bit signals with native 32-bit resolution and sample rate of up to 384 kHz, for which it combines refined audio circuitry with high precision 32 bit D / A converters (specifically the reputed AKM AK4490).

There is also in the digital section of the AK380 another element that makes the difference: the use, for the first time in a product of its class, of a voltage-controlled quartz crystal-based synchronism clock (VCXO) with a jitter level of 200 femtoseconds, or 0.2 picoseconds, allowing audio signals to be reproduced with realism and a level of refinement comparable to that of the best digital sources of the moment. The AK380 also incorporates a 20-band parametric equalizer (PEQ) (with adjustments in 0.1 dB steps) assisted by DSP instead of less precise graphic equalizers (GEQ) for the user to adjust the characteristics of the sound to their preferences. while a sophisticated aerospace-grade duralumin construction with pressure-sensitive metal buttons provides a unique sense of exclusivity. In addition, the AK380 can also connect to DLNA networks wirelessly (v1.0) via the exclusive AK Connect App, allowing you to play music files from, for example, a NAS drive or a PC or Mac computer, listen to streaming music from a mobile phone / tablet or even download audio content from any Astell & Kern product.
