Dual ESS Sabre
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 Quad-core CPU also offers a powerful, lag-free performance. This player has been designed to be functional with every element in the right place for a more intuitive and user-friendly experience.
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.
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.
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. 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.
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.
