Astell & Kern AK70 hi-res music player and DAC uses 24bit 192kHz bit to bit playback and its DAC is based on market-proven CS4398 chips of Cirrus Logic which has been used for years in hi-fi audios. This player takes 32bit audio and downsamples it using a sample-rate converter. AK70 supports the 2.5 mm 4-pole balanced output that has been in use since the second generation of Astell & Kern players. The balanced output type removes noise for a better listening experience.
