The AK70's DAC, based on market-proven CS4398 chips of Cirrus Logic, has been used for years in Hi-Fi audios and the second-generation Astell & Kern devices.
The AK70 is designed with an oblique angle on one side of the body so that it can fit the contour of the user's thumb, the finger used most frequently when controlling the screen with one hand.
The volume wheel is designed to be protruding slightly from a concave surface so that you can control volume with a simple motion of sliding your finger up and down. With slim 13-mm thickness and 132-gram lightweight, the palm-sized device is easy to carry anywhere.
The AK70 has adopted a pastel-color anodized aluminum casing, in a light mint color and glossy silver tone. The smart-looking exterior and smooth color make the device look slim, sleek and ultra modern.
AK70 USB DAC Mode: The AK70 can be used with a USB DAC that can double as an embedded sound card by connecting with a PC/Mac through the USB port. In the case of using the PC's embedded sound card, one may have to go through a complicated process to play back DSD data. In contrast, the AK70 can do so simply by connecting with the PC.
In the case of using the AK70 as a USB DAC, it can support up to 24-bit 96 kHz bit to bit, providing much richer sound through superior ambience and resolution way beyond the limits of an embedded sound card.
The AK70 supports the Groovers app: You can stream MQS in real time in any place where network is available and download conveniently with easy-to-make payments. You can also enjoy high-quality music through Groovers' streaming service.
