The unveiling of the AK240 marks an expansion of A&K's range of portable audio players and builds on the success of the AK100 and AK120 .
In addition to a brand-new look, the AK240 includes a series of new features not currently offered by any other high-res portable players on the market.
The new features include 256GB internal memory and one microSD card slot supporting up to 64GB of microSD card storage – resulting in a total of 320GB of music storage.
