Moving from the AK100 to AK120, we implemented the Dual DAC setup to create better left and right channel separation with clearer sound quality. We thought that the Dual DAC setup would be enough, but while developing the AK240, we felt the need to further improve sound quality in order to accurately reproduce the original sound recording.
After countless hours of research and testing, we 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, we can say that we have gotten “that much closer” to the sound quality of the original recording.
Available in Gunmetal, Gold, and Stainless Steel. The Stainless Steel model uses the entire body as the ground for audio output, resulting in a lower noise floor than the Gunmetal and Gold models!
