An iPod Classic? Pah! What’s 160GB worth when you can’t carry your entire carefully curated audio collection around in fully lossless quality? Nothing, that’s what. No, what you need is Astell&Kern’s £899 (S$1265) Kann, an aluminium-wrapped machine that eats FLAC files for breakfast. With 64GB of storage (expandable up to 576GB via two memory card slots), it’ll handle the toughest of files - including top-end 32-bit/384kHz PCM audio, a format usually reserved for master tracks. There’s clever software trickery on-board, too, including a parametric equaliser, as well as the ability to work as an external USB-C DAC and - get this - a choice of four analogue output ports.
