JR gives the player the option of comfortable listening to music in high resolution anywhere, anytime. High-end digital audio in a compact design and rechargeable battery makes JR Pocket Friend demanding listeners. Uses the proven transducer Wolfson WM8740 for maximum yield details. The amplifier then reproduces sound with unprecedented force. Engineers reduced the output impedance 2 ohms, which significantly increased the profit and audio fidelity.
With the Astell & Kern JR, you can listen to high-resolution audio anytime, anywhere. Its top-of-the-line hardware, such as the Wolfson WM8740 converter, delivers the highest sound quality while its compact design makes it easy to fit comfortably in your pocket. Because Astell & Kern's engineers have reduced JR's output impedance to only 2 Ohms, its sound fidelity is now flawless. It's like carrying a small concert in your pocket.
Astell & Kern JR comes with 64 gigabytes of internal memory which can be enhanced by a micro SD card of up to 64GB.
