DESCRIPTION

WHEN THE PAST MEETS THE PRESENT

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.

DUAL AKM AK4492ECB DAC THAT'S HOUSED IN A STAINLESS STEEL CHASSIS FOR A LUXURIOUS SOUND QUALITY

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.

SUPPORTS MQA FILES & HI-FI PLAYBACK

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 AUDIO USING YOUR FAVOURITE MUSIC APP

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.

INTUITIVE LED INDICATORS

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).

GO RETRO, STAY MODERN

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.

Expert Verdict "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."
Headfonia
The battery will outlast a road-trip, the power handling is glorious, and the stylish, rock-solid build is (just about) small enough to take with you on your travels."
WHAT HI FI
The newly introduced BT Sink function connects the SE180 to an external device, such as your smartphone, via BT, enabling you to take advantage of the A&K's DAC while playing from your phone's library."
Steronet
"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)."
