The Astell&Kern is the ultimate portable Hi-Fi audio system.

The Astell&Kern is the ultimate portable high-fidelity audio system capable of playing Mastering Quality Sound (MQS) from music mastering studios. MQS refers to all of the high resolution digital music recording studio formats up to 24-bit/ 44 – 192kHz. MQS delivers vast amounts of better music experience because MQS delivers 6.5 times of the detailed information in the same track.

24-bit, 192kHz high-resolution audio is considered studio quality and also referred to as Mastering Quality Sound (MQS).

Astell&Kern natively supports MQS (24-bit / 44 – 192kHz) which is the closest to the original sound that the original recording artist intended. Mastering Quality Sound (MQS) is an acronym of collective lossless & high-resolution audio source formats that typically comes encoded with 24bit, 44 to 192kHz of bit/sampling rates. Since MQS delivers about 6.5 times more detail than a conventional CD (16bit/44.1kHz), listeners can enjoy more a realistic music experience.

What does 24-bit and 192kHz mean?

Hertz(Hz) refers to the number of times the sound wave gets measured per second. Files with 192kHz are measured 192,000 times per second. Within the digital audio source, 192,000 points per second entails as the number of points connected as one line associated to the signal. This is referred to as the sampling rate.
