Henry Park, CEO of iriver, the parent company of Astell&Kern said, “With the Tidal integration, we are providing users with the best hi-fi streaming service available today. We are very excited to offer this service to our loyal customers. Astell&Kern feels the addition of Tidal will help reach new audiences who want to receive their music selection delivered this way. Astell&Kern is always looking for new ways to provide music lovers with the best way to enjoy music at home and on-the-go. Our line of high-resolution audio players is considered to be the best money can buy, so we always want to be a part of the latest and greatest options currently available for music.”
While Astell&Kern has streaming services available on their devices in other countries such as Groovers+, Moov, and Deezer, Tidal integration provides a global provider of streaming music services. Tidal members enjoy exclusively curated content that directly connect artists with their fans in multiple ways. The service offers high-fidelity, CD-quality music, high-resolution video, an opportunity to discover new artists, and unique experiences via Tidal X. Tidal is available in more than 52 countries, with a catalog of over more than 42.5 million songs and 140,000 high-quality videos. For more information, go to www.tidal.com.
Tidal support will be available via an OTA firmware update and will roll out in tiers to Astell&Kern’s full product line, starting with the AK70, AK300, AK320, and AK380 portable high-resolution audio players. Support for Astell&Kern’s AK240, AK100 II, and AK120 II players will follow.
