We added high sound quality to the wireless freedom!Now it's possible to use aptX™ HD, the latest Bluetooth codec of Qualcomm to receive 24bit high-quality data wirelessly, and it's designed to faithfully play back the transmitted high-quality data using Astell&Kern's own sound technology.
The AK XB10 delivers a distinctive difference in sound from conventional Bluetooth products. The moment you hear it, you wonder "Does this sound really come from Bluetooth?"Astell&Kern's outstanding technologies are throughout aptX™ HD to support 24bit/48kHz Bluetooth performance, along with DAC and AMP, essential components of fine audio.
While the AK XB10 is a device that wirelessly transmits audio data from smartphones via Bluetooth,it is quite different from conventional Bluetooth devices, in that it supports the aptX™ HD Bluetooth codec.Just as the display resolutions of televisions evolved from standard to high-definition to 4K ultra-HD for sharperimage quality, we are now in the era in which Bluetooth now supports 24-bit audio resolution. 24-bit HD audio that was simply not possible with previous Bluetooth technologiescan now be fully enjoyed with aptX™ HD.Typically used in professional broadcasting, the original aptX™ audio codec is widely usedfor 16-bit near-CD quality sound. The benefits of the aptX™ codec include superior compression, low computational cost,and low transmission delay.Launched in early 2016, the next-generation aptX™ HD codec is capable of transmitting up to24-bit/48 kHz audio that is faithful to the original audio file.* Devices connected to the AK XB10 must support the aptX™ and aptX™ HD codecs for 24bit audio playback
