Astell & Kern 120 / Hi-Fi Audio Player

As an MQS portable system, which plays studio Mastering-Quality Sound (MQS), this is an ultimate portable hi-fi audio system. The hairline of the aluminum body, which perfectly matches the real sound, looks different according to the angle of light. The metallic black body which looks ponderous like a masterpiece made by a master craftsman, and the conflicting high-gloss back show beauty of reversal. Not the conventional hardware volume button, the minute-controlling analog volume wheel, which expresses classic beauty in a modern way, is Astell & Kern's own classic icon to impress users.

The reason why we selected the hifi audio player was the amazing attention to details, the particular craftsmanship on the product. It gives a high quality impression. The feeling in relation to the interface and the analog usability, the way you can operate the product, is fantastic as well. It is a product which is very distinguished, well designed and thus a product which deserves an iF gold award.
