The Astell&Kern SA700 brings out the perfect blend of the past and the present. It has combined the analogue sensibilities of its earlier players along with the latest DAP technology. The SA700 is redesigned with the original design of the AK120 into a simple, refined form.
The SA700 is made up of stainless steel which is corrosion-free and lasts long. This material provides the best quality of luxury and balanced sound with more clarity. Under the hood, you have the dual AKM AK4492ECB DAC that delivers a great performance along with lower power consumption. This is the first player to feature this high-quality DAC.
The SA700 has managed to set a record high in producing high-fidelity audio. There is no compromise on sound quality with its native 32 bit/384kHz playback. It also supports DSD formats up to 11.4MHz with barely any distortion. It even supports Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) files. This technology is known to deliver the sound of the original master recording.
Stream music from your favourite services thanks to the Open APP Service. You can install a variety of .apk apps like Tidal, Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music and more. The new GUI includes elements (including Astell&Kern's identity colour) from the first generation of players along with the current GUI.
The SA700 will never fail to amaze you. The LED lights present over the volume controls give lots of information about the file frequency and volume of the player. There are 150 levels of red saturation which are displayed to reflect the current volume of the player. The other colours reveal the bit-depth of the file being played i.e. 16-bit (Red), 24-bit (Green), 32-bit (Blue) and DSD (Purple).
The SA700 has been inspired by the gorgeous Bridge of Strings (It is evident, based on the wheel protector's design). The volume wheel's knurled pattern and stainless steel body reflect the LED lighting resulting in a beautiful effect. The lower MicroSD card slot has a 1st gen A&K sliding door system to add to the retro look and feel.

"But I can say that it notably beats the performance of A&K's cheaper models. I also think it’s worth the upgrade from the Kann, especially if you’re hungry for more internal storage."Read More
"The highs sound a little milder than usual and I think it’s due to the contrast with energetic mids. The highs length is well above average but is not maximal, with good resolution and realism."Read More
"Its industrial design and aesthetics are first-rate and has a user-experience that makes discovering your own musical collection a joy, as well as the music that you don’t know that you love yet."Read More
