Audio-Technica to exhibit ultra-High-End Narukami series headphone amplifier/preamplifier and high-performance headphones at Axpona 2024


Press release | At Axpona 2024 Audio-Technica will demonstrate the finest products in the company’s history: the new Narukami Series HPA-KG Naru Tube Headphone Amplifier/Preamplifier and ATH-AWKG Closed-Back Dynamic Wooden Headphones. These extraordinary works of audio art are handcrafted in Tokyo, Japan from the finest components and materials to deliver a remarkable listening experience.
The amp/preamp and headphones will be available for private audition in Audio-Technica’s Axpona 2024 suites in the Adventure rooms, located on the first floor. Appointments are limited and first come, first served.
The Narukami Series HPA-KG Naru tube amplifier/preamplifier, 108,000 USD, is as striking in appearance as it is in sound quality. It’s styled to reflect the appearance of a karesansui, or dry landscape garden, representing water flows. The front and side panels are made from rare kurogaki wood. The amplifier/preamp employs ultimate-quality components throughout, including four Takatsuki 300B power tubes. The HPA-KG is the culmination of 10 years of painstaking development.
