  • The Long Story

    Powerful with Super-Low Noise


    Astell&Kern is known for crafting the world's greatest high-resolution music players. The KANN Cube is extremely powerful in the KANN hierarchy. This system focuses on a high-fidelity sound with powerful output offering a very low noise floor.

    A Complete Audio Highflier


    Astell&Kern is proud to announce that the KANN Cube has a newly designed OP Amp and Volume IC which manages power optimally and efficiently to minimise distortion and deliver a neutral audio experience. It has 32bit/384kHz, Native DSD256 support of decoding. The KANN Cube's multiple power outputs for high, mid and low options give unmatched power to the headphones with a Balanced output of 12Vrms and an Unbalanced output of 6Vrms.

    Clear Sound with the ESS PRO Series


    The KANN Cube uses the most advanced dual ESS ES9038PRO SABRE 8-channel DAC Chips to deliver unlimited soundstage and depth. Each DAC sends out 8 channels of audio signals through the Analog AMP Block where one chip is dedicated to the left channel while the other is for the right channel. These chips belong to the SABRE PRO Series which is a first in an audio player.

    Lesser Noise with 5-Pin Mini XLR Output


    The KANN Cube has managed to set a record high in producing high-fidelity audio. It is the first Astell&Kern player to offer a 5-pin mini XLR connector which gives a lower noise floor and higher audio output. It can easily connect to your home audio systems and active speakers with balanced connections delivering clear and pure audio playback.

    MQA Technology


    The KANN Cube includes the award-winning British MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) technology which delivers the sound of the original master recording. Certified MQA files are small in size to stream or download. Enjoy the original recording experience wherever and whenever you want.
