Description

All of the pieces comprising the K-5’s case are made of solid aluminum plates locked together with stainless-steel fasteners. This was done for two reasons. First, aluminum is a strong, resilient material that retains its shape, color, and texture indefinitely, and won’t tarnish or bubble. Second, aluminum is nonmagnetic, which is key — magnetic materials can adversely affect audio signals. In fact, Hansen saw to it that none of the materials used inside the K-5 have magnetic properties — save the EI transformer, of course.

Measuring a slim 17.25”W x 3.75”H x 13.25”D, the 23-pound K-5 takes up little space, and can be ordered in silver or black. The K-5 has a single-line display machined into the center of its faceplate, flanked by a pair of identical rotating knobs and two small buttons to the lower inside of each.
