Astell&Kern is the ultimate digital music system that brings you MQS(Mastering Quality Sound). Astell means ‘Stars’ in Latin and Kern means ‘Center’ in German. We believe Astell&Kern is the center of music. Astell&Kern offers Hi-Fi audio systems, both portable and stationary, which playback high-resolution music, bit by bit, exactly as it was recorded. There are many audio companies that talk about ‘technologies’, yet Astell&Kern is the only brand that talks about ‘progress’ in the audio experience.
