iRiver Launches AK120, Premium Quality Audio Player Priced at $1300
Are you an audiophile looking for a premium quality portable player? iRiver’s AK120 is one hell of an option. If you’re in a mood to splurge, then this $1300 music player will definitely give you a ticket to exclusivity. In a sea of Apple iPods, with brushed metal finish and a handmade Italian-designed leather case, this iRiver under the name of Astell & Kern sure stands out. The portable player is equipped with MQS (Mastering Quality Sound) and features a 2.4-inch IPS touchcreen. Inside, there’re two digital-to-analog converters, dual Wolfson WM8740 DAC chips and an internal memory of 64GB, which is expandable up to 192GB via two microSD card slots, which is a lot for a music player. The AK120 can play plenty of formats, including WAV, FLAC, WMA, MP3, OGG, APE, AAC, ALAC and AIFF, with DSD to be added soon.
