Astell & Kern to release new firmware

Thursday, 13 June 2013  |  Simon

Astell and Kern are now releasing dates for their most important firmware upgrades. 

  • AK100
    • June 18th : Gapless, AK120 UI  (perfect for classical music lovers - and Dark Side of the Moon!)
    • June 27th : USB-DAC support
  • AK120
    • June 14th : USB-DAC support 
    • July 15th : DSD playback - a growing interest in DSD at the moment.

This is great news indeed.  The AK100 and AK120 will not only be the smallest and (arguably) the best sounding personal players now available, but a thoroughly excellent USB-DAC for home use, streaming from any USB output up to 24/192 in WAV, FLAC etc.and any of the Apple lossless codecs - and then DSD file conversion as well for the AK120 from mid July.

These upgrades extend the use and flexibility of the Astell and Kern players and makes their package of features quite unique.
