2x ESS Sabre ES9068AS &
1x AKM AK4499EQ DAC Chips
Meet the world's very first multi-DAC audio player — the Astell&Kern A&futura SE200. It features the latest ESS ES9068AS Dual DAC as well as a single AKM AK4499EQ. Together, you get a vibrant sound that can even playback Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) files.
To further optimise the performance of the DAC Chips, the A&futura SE200 is designed with multiple AMP circuits. The signals for the balanced and unbalanced channels are separated to avoid any interference and deliver the best sound possible. This player allows you to further customise the sound profile using the variety of DAC filters that has been provided by the DAC manufacturer.
The A&futura SE200 has a similar design identity to the original SE100. This includes the trapezoidal shape and bold curves. The volume knob is divided into two to symbolize the different DACs used. The LED on the knob displays a different colour letting you know the volume range, bit-rate and DAC used.
Aluminium offers maximum sound quality with minimum noise. Astell&Kern has developed a special laser ground extension technology and metal processing to give you the best sound possible along with the precise curves on the player's body. A new high-gloss ceramic plate is added to the top and rear of the player. This plate allows the light to flow, creating a premium finish. It is developed via seven different processes to prevent cracking, add durability and gorgeousness.
A lot of time and hard work has gone into creating the A&futura SE200. It is made from the very same vibration-free processing machines that are used by expensive Swiss luxury watch manufacturers. This can be seen in the detailed design of the volume wheel that resembles the crown of a luxury watch. To ensure that the 3-DAC configuration works perfectly, twice the amount of time was spent in tuning and developing this player.

The SE200 is a world first in that it features two audiophile-calibre Sabre ESS9068AS DACs (in a dual DAC configuration), alongside a single AKM4499EQ (last seen in the flagship SP2000).
"A sublime musical experience awaits the well-heeled audiophile. A near perfect marriage of industrial design and intoxicating sound make SA700 a superb high-res digital audio player by any measure."
"The Astell&Kern SP2000 is very precise and detailed, it also delivers music with a fast pace. The Bass is tight, fast and detailed with good layering."
"Tube output has always been a dream of mine in a DAP and for some time I thought this might happen in the amp cards from FiiO or iBasso but it never materialized."
