Astell & Kern AK300 Midnight Black 64GB High-Resolution Audio Player

Astell & Kern AK300 Midnight Black 64GB High-Resolution Audio Player

The AK300 is the embodiment of purity and timelessness of music. Its design was inspired by the flagship AK380 music player, continuing the "light and shadow" motif found in the entire Astell & Kern product line. The AK240 captured a moment in time at which light had ceased to move, while the AK380 expressed the perpetuity of moving light. Now, the AK300 represents the purity of a shadow as it reflects no light. The essence of a shadow without being split by light was captured in a restrained yet immaculate shape, and this exemplifies the purity of the original studio sound that only Astell & Kern can deliver.
