Evolution of a Masterpiece

[thb_gap height=”50″]
The light and the object are the main theme of the AK380 design.
Any shadow of an object portraits the exact shape from the perspective of the light at that moment.
The way of reproducing the true sound of music from digital formats is quite similar. Nothing more or nothing less.
The design motif of the AK380 reflects our philosophy of music and sound.

32-bit 384kHz bit-to-bit Playback

[thb_gap height=”50″]
All of the AK380’s circuit design including the digital-analog converter (DAC) are ready for 32-bit processing to handle 32-bit music natively.

Other products have traditionally used sample rate converter (SRC) method down sampling for playback. However, the AK380 is capable of playing back 32-bit, 384 kHz original sound without any down sampling.

The result is the AK380 plays up to 32-bit, 384 kHz, any 24-bit music files, or double layer DSD 5.6MHz natively, without conversion or compression.

More Expandable Options

The AK380 offers great expandable options through its micro USB connection and balanced out ports on the bottom of the unit.
The AK380’s functionality is expandable by connecting to a variety of devices.
You can increase the output and connect to a greater variety of high-impedance professional headphones through the upcoming AK380 Amp.
The AK380 Cradle features balanced output in addition to USB data transfer and charging capabilities, and the AK380 CD-ROM drive rips audio CDs directly to the AK380.
