A New Approach to Music: the team of Astell & Kern have been relentlessly searching for just the right raw material to complement sound and that is how AK380 Copper was created.
32-bit 384kHz bit-to-bit Playback
AK380 Copper’s circuit design includes the digital-analog converter (DAC) are ready for 32-bit processing to handle 32-bit music natively.
The AK380 Copper can play back 32-bit, 384 kHz original sound with no down sampling.
Equipped With a Femto Clock to Deliver True Original Sound
Astell&Kern implemented a voltage-controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO) high-precision clock with a reference jitter value of 200 femto seconds*3. Femto clocks are used in high-end audio systems, and the clock is measured in high-precision femtosecond units (one quadrillionth of a second). We will show you the rest of the special features below.
