Astell & Kern Redefines Portable Hi-Fi Audio With A 3-DAC Music Player

For true audiophiles, the ability to tailor your music player’s proficiencies to different genres, styles, and sounds can be a godsend. Luckily, high-fidelity-focused companies like Astell&Kern have created devices like the SE100, which boast digital-to-analog converters that can amplify your favorite tunes, and cater to your specific wired earphone/over-ear setup. Now, the brand has revealed the second in its line of hi-fi offerings, the A&futura SE200.

The A&futura SE200 is a bit more technically-inclined than its predecessor and takes on a trio of digital-to-analog converters (or DACs), as opposed to the pair that were included in the brand’s first-generation SE100. As such, it’s become the first high-fidelity music device to incorporate DACs from two different manufacturers. At its heart, the SE200 sets itself apart from the genre’s alternatives due to its powerful octa-core processor, 32-bit/384-kHz bit-to-bit decoding, and native DSD256, allowing you to stream high-quality music in virtually any file format. The device also boasts Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth AptX HD compatibility, and 14-hour battery life, ensuring that you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy Master Quality Authenticated tracks — studio-quality audio that’s been fashioned into files small enough for streaming — from your favorite artists. Head to Astell&Kern’s website to pick up your own for $1,799.
