3 DAC CHIPS, 1 AWESOME PLAYER
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.
MULTIPLE AMP CIRCUITS & DAC FILTERS, WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE?
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.
DIAGONAL LINES & BOLD CURVES: DEFINITELY A WINNER!
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.
DESIGNED TO BE DURABLE & STYLISH WITH ALUMINIUM AND CERAMIC BODY
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.
DESIGNED & CRAFTED BY EXPERTS
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.
