Audio-Technica Narukami Unveils Ultra-High-End Headphone Experience

Audio-Technica has launched its Narukami line, a new range of ultra-high-end audio products designed for the most discerning listeners. The centerpiece of the lineup is the HPA-KG NARU, a handcrafted tube headphone amplifier/preamplifier.

Inspired by the Japanese God of Thunder

Taking its name from the Japanese god of thunder, Narukami, the HPA-KG NARU is meticulously crafted to deliver an unparalleled listening experience. The amplifier boasts a stunning design, featuring a chassis constructed from precious kurogaki wood (Japanese black persimmon) with a unique wavy black pattern. The protective grill evokes the flat needles of the ayasugi tree, while the top panel resembles a Karesansui (dry landscape garden) with flowing water motifs.

Uncompromising Performance

The HPA-KG NARU features top-of-the-line components, including four legendary Takatsuki 300B power tubes and low-current ECC83S gold-pin small-signal tubes. It utilizes a fully balanced dual-mono design with premium Lundahl amorphous core silver-wound transformers for unmatched sonic clarity. This meticulously engineered design is the culmination of a 10-year development process.

Versatile Connectivity & Perfect Pairing

The HPA-KG NARU caters to a wide range of headphones with both balanced 4.4 mm and standard 6.3 mm jacks. It also functions as a full-fledged preamplifier, offering balanced and unbalanced outputs for connection to speakers. The HPA-KG NARU perfectly complements the AW-KG NARU headphones, handcrafted in Tokyo and featuring the same exquisite kurogaki wood design.

Premium Closed-Back Headphones

The ATH-AWKG headphones boast closed-back design with luxurious kurogaki wood earcups. They incorporate Audio-Technica's proprietary DADS (Double Air Damping System) for exceptional sound quality.  Custom-designed 53mm drivers utilize powerful German Permendur magnets and oxygen-free copper voice coils mounted on titanium frames.

Unmatched Comfort & Customization

The ATH-AWKG headphones come with an additional set of luxurious ZMF Universe hybrid ear pads and a pair of detachable cables with both 4-pin balanced and standard 1/4-inch connectors. The headphones connect to the amplifier via Audio-Technica A2DC connectors. They are presented in a stunning gift box featuring kurogaki wood accents.

Experience Audio Nirvana

The Audio-Technica Narukami system offers an unparalleled audio experience for the most demanding audiophiles. In the US, the HPA-KG NARU and ATH-AWKG combination sets you back a staggering $108,000, with the headphones available separately for $4,200.
