CONCLUSION
Like the AK100, the new tuned-up AK120 is a player that shows what we are moving to: it’s a glimpse of the future. Superb high resolution digital sound quality brings even old analogue recordings to life – fabulous. Its improved output amplifiers strengthen bass grunt when using the analogue headphone output to feed a stereo amplifier, making this a serious digital player, not just a fabulous sounding portable.  Hopefully DSD will work well when it arrives as it is attracting interest, but even without it, the AK120 is a must-have.



A top portable music player with fantastic sound quality. Little comes close.

FOR
- plays top 24/192 digital
- can drive a hi-fi system
- small

AGAINST
- no charger
- poor charge display
- no DSD (yet)
