The new AK120 II studio quality pocket music player has more in common with the flagship AK240 model than with the original AK120 it replaces and was rightly showered with praise upon its release.

The AK120 Mk2 uses the same Cirrus Logic DAC chips in dual-mono configuration as the 240 and has balanced output, native DSD support, Wi-Fi streaming, 10 band EQ, large AMOLED touch screen display and slick Android-based operating system.

It has also been completely redesigned and engineered from the inside out. What remains is the same exceptional quality of design, engineering and manufacture, and, most importantly, peerless sound quality in a truly portable player which is equally at home in your hi-fi system. With a slightly lower output level than the AK240 it doesn't quite match it spec-for-spec but it comes very close and is a certainly worthy successor to the original AK120.
