After successfully launching the AK100 and the AK120 models, A&K asked themselves, “What is the ultimate sound quality?” After much consideration, they decided to move a step further with our goal, which is to deliver the sound “exactly as the artist had intended” for them to hear. Moving from the AK100 to AK120, they decided to provide a Dual DAC setup to create better left and right channel separation with clearer sound quality. A&K thought that the Dual DAC setup would be enough, but while developing the AK240, they felt the need to further improve sound quality in order to accurately reproduce the original sound recording. After countless hours of research and testing, they were able to find the answer.
The answer was to create both a balanced output and native DSD playback through the Dual DAC setup.
Now with the AK240, A&K can dare say that they have gotten “that much closer” to the sound quality of the original recording.
