Astell & Kern’s new digital audio player goes minty

Astell&Kern has introduced the new AK70 including features formerly only found on the high-end models, such as Wi-Fi connectivity and a balanced output option.

The AK70’s Wi-Fi connectivity means you can stream music to and from the player; it also allows for firmware upgrades. Like all Astell&Kern players, there’s also a micro SD slot, which in this case allows the AK70’s 64GB internal memory to be expanded via 200GB cards.
