Astell&Kern makes impossibly good digital audio players. Within some 10 years, the brand has set a supreme standard for how an audio file should sound. They call this “Mastering Quality Sound”. Interestingly, Astell means ‘Stars’ in Latin and Kern means ‘Center’ in German. Astell&Kern is mindfully designed to getting audiophiles & purists alike to feel an irrefutable connection with music.
