Astell&Kern AKT1 overview

  • 1Description

The black AK T1 All-In-One Sound System from Astell&Kern is capable of high-resolution audio playback via wide variety of audio inputs. It features the Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC in a dual-DAC configuration. The combination of the MQS player performance with the speaker and amplifier system of this unit allows you to experience a wide, high-resolution sound. With support for USB storage devices, microSD cards, DLNA networking, Bluetooth streaming, auxiliary, and optical inputs, the sound system supports playback of music from any source device.

An amplifier appropriate for the characteristics of each speaker unit is implemented in the AK T1 Sound System using a bi-amping technique. A hybrid type amplifier system is used to maximize the advantages of both analog and digital amplifiers. In the hybrid amplifier system, an analog amplifier drives the tweeters while the digital amplifier drives the mid-range and woofers. The hybrid amplifier system uses a dedicated amplifier appropriate for a specific frequency range so that listeners can experience perfectly balanced sound.

The 6 speaker units deliver balanced lows, mids, and highs without compromising on a particular range of sound. To prevent vibrations generated in the low range, the sound system contains an aluminum enclosure along with a dedicated low-range, high-pass filter (subsonic filter) for deep, tight, and clean bass. To maximize the purity of the mid-range sound, a direct connection to the amplifier is made without the use of any gain adjustment device to cloud the sound.

A 4-way crossover filter is used to prevent overlapping audio frequencies in the low-order crossover filters. Audio frequencies are completely separated through the use of the 4-way crossover, providing distinct playback of each sound range with no unnecessary bass bleeds into the high-frequency tweeters.

With the AK T1 Sound System, easily play audio from multiple sources such as a NAS device, or an Astell&Kern music player through a wired LAN or Wi-Fi DLNA connection. In addition to DLNA networking, it supports the Bluetooth aptX codec for high-resolution audio playback. The Internet radio service is also available on this system and thousands of channels are available on the vTuner. In addition, a vast selection of music is available through a wired or wireless network connection on the sound system.

The AK T1 system features a large 4” touchscreen display that offers a convenient and intuitive user interface. Turn on the sound system and connect to a network with just a few clicks to immediately begin listening to music. The sound system also comes with a touch-sensitive metal touch control.

Simply listen to music stored on an NAS device through the AK T1 Sound System by using your smartphone or tablet with the AK Connect app. You can also stream music stored on an Astell&Kern portable music player to the AK T1.
