Thanks in large part to smartphones and app-based streaming services, it seems like the days of portable music players have come and gone. And that’s a shame for anyone who appreciates high fidelity sound, because those phones and tablets really just can’t offer the same quality sound as a dedicated player. Especially not when compared to this new release from Astell & Kern – the KANN high-fidelity music player.

For those who still have an appreciation for listening to music in exactly the way it was intended to be heard, this new device is a godsend. Loaded with a AKM AK4490 digital-to-analog converter, the KANN offers native DSD playback of up to DSD256 – or 11.2 megahertz – and PCM playback up to 32 bits. Which means it offers the kind of audio clarity unheard of by other audio devices on the market. It’s also equipped with a built-in amp that switches between normal and high gain, expandable onboard storage of up to 832 gigabytes, offers Bluetooth support, and has a battery life of up to 14 hours per charge. Preorder one today for $999. [Purchase]
