K2 technology is an audio mastering technology developed by JVC Kenwood Victor Entertainment Corporation. It was named after the two engineers who developed the system: Kuwaoka and Kanai. K2 technology has two major features: Improving sound quality and packing high-definition data in lower format CD. The fundamental principle of K2 technology is to produce audios that are "closer to the musical truth"[1] and "restoring sound to its original state."[1] Originally developed from a project in 1987, K2 technology is the fundamental technology of audio mastering technology such as netK2 and K2HD mastering.

The development of K2 was started in response to calls from recording engineers in Victor Studio. However, engineers found that there was a clear difference in sound quality between original audio data and the copy versions on CD even though the digital data does not change during the transferring process. The engineers in Victor Studio then found the reason that disguising the original data and copy versions is the electrical distortion such as jitters and rippling occurs during the data recording and transformation. Kuwaoka and Kanai, two engineers from Victor Studio started their searching for improvements of the sound quality for audio data after transformation. Their attempts were named the “K2 Interface”, which was the original version of K2.
