Great device!
I have an extensive CD collection and this device makes it very quick and easy to copy them to my Astell & Kern Kann. The sound is amazing! I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Easy Ripper
Very nice Ripper designed for A&K players just plug in the power cord and the player hook up the wifi and transfer cd files to either flac or wave . I chose flac and downloaded several cd's from my library the speed of the download even when set to fast is a little disappointing it took way more time than I had expected BUT the audio is superb and the gracenote labeling is spot on even on more obscure disc's .

I am very pleased with the results !

when ripping to a PC - does it include the Gracenote tags, etc.?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2018
  One would be ripping to this device and not to a PC. That having been said, metadata should transfer.
can you rip this directly to an external drive? Or if you must rip to an AK player, then does that player allow for transfer of the Mp3 to your computer? essentially I am looking to converting my 10,000 cd collection to digital files and do not want to be stuck to any one device in the future for playing (as in an AK player only scenario) want to be able to backup to an external drive. Can I do that?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2020
  Thank you for your question. We reached out to Astell & Kern tech support on your behalf and they responded:

Since utilizing the external memory card is optional between users, by default, all ripped CD albums from AK DAP x AK CD-Ripper MKII will be stored directly within the internal storage of the AK DAP, under 'Ripping' folder.

From there, customers can transfer/back-up to a new destination(s) at will.

Thanks again.
Can you rip to your computer if you are somewhere without your AK player? Or if you do not yet own the AK player?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2018
  Yes, this device can rip to a computer, however it will not gather the Gracenote data when ripping to computer. It requires the use of an A&K player for that capability.
Is this compatible with the SA700 DAP?
A shopper on Jul 21, 2020
  Thanks for your question. They are compatible. The AK Ripper includes a connection cable for connection to an A&S music player.
Is it compatible with sp1000m model? What is the higher resolution of ripping?
A shopper on Aug 15, 2019
  The Ripper Mk II extracts the digital data from a CD and can save it in either WAV or FLAC format. There is no conversion of resolution in this process. The Ripper Mk II is compatible with the SP1000.
will this cd ripper also do multi - ch cd's ?
A shopper on Nov 10, 2018
  Thanks for your inquiry! To my knowledge, the ripper is only able to handle standard stereo WAV or FLAC files. If you are wanting to rip SACDs to digital files, I would recommend contacting the manufacturer directly to inquire as to that function, as they do not list it in any manuals or spec charts I could find. Let us know if you have any further questions!
Can this device rip to any Sony high res players?
A shopper on May 27, 2018
  Thanks for your question! This device can only copy directly to Astell and Kern DAPs or a personal computer. To use this with a Sony player, you can copy to a computer and move the copied files to your Sony DAP.
Can this rip and share to a Google pixel smart phone?
A shopper on Mar 26, 2018
  Thanks for your question! This unit is not able to rip directly to a Google Pixel. It is designed to rip directly to the Astell & Kern portable players. It can also rip to a computer, where you could then transfer files from the computer to your Pixel phone.
