Each AK380 casing is milled from a solid, 1.7Kg block of copperwhich is then hand finished and coated in a four-stage process that prevents oxidization and produces a brushed-metal finish. The player is completed by a carbon-fibre backing, and comes with a V1 leather case.

Only 500 units of the AK380 Copper will be available worldwide, at a price of £3299 each. The UK’s allocation will be available from select audio stockists, and Astell&Kern’s Amazon UK page, from late January.

The AK380 offers the same spec as the standard AK380 player, including dual 32bit DACs, advanced jitter reduction and native DSD playback. The AK380 Copper can also be used with the range of AK380 accessories, including the headphone amp module that neatly slides onto the player.
