Mind-blowing, Terrific

I never know that ripping CD is this much easier; and if you have a Astell & Kern DAP then it will be a bliss for you. Stylish, compact and sound less. What do you want apart from this. I have a large CD collection over the years and now it's a time to slowly move to digital without losing the quality of the CD. I have tried many ways to RIP CD into FLAC and other lossless format through Desktops, Laptops; error correction is quite difficult. But this device and a DAP will remove all your pheripherals and give you a tension free CD Ripping. Previously CD Ripping is a tedious job for me which takes more time, now it's a fun job with this device. Thanks a lot HZ Team for bringing this Device at such a price in Indian market.

Hi there, we are so happy you took out time and elaborately reviewed the product with a comparison. We are sure this will help our customers to make an even better and informed decision.

The Astell&Kern AK CD-Ripper MKII has been made to look good and stay functional. The new design offers a better CD ripping experience while maintaining the original AK CD-Ripper's stable performance. The rectangular insertion slot for the CD has a more vivid design. The increased weight and triangular support damper's spring structure limits vibrations from CD-rotation effectively.

After ripping, your connected Astell&Kern player will automatically access Gracenote's servers to add music information like the song name, artist's name, album, etc. as well as the album's cover. You can even manually add this information if it's not available on Gracenote. Furthermore, you can set the ripping speed (normal/fast /very fast) and file format (WAV / FLAC) via the settings menu.
