The innovative interchangeable DAC design of the A&futura SE180 Digital Audio Player from Astell&Kern, not only offers a new level of audio flexibility for the user but also improves the sound performance. By physically separating the main body from the all-in-one module, power and radio frequency (RF) noise generated by the main unit is completely blocked. This creates an independent structure that prevents noise from interfering with music playback. This is the the first player to harbour TERATON ALPHA technology that effectively removes power noise and provides efficient power consumption and amplification right through to the audio output interface stage where the digital-to-analogue signal conversion (DAC) takes place – audio technology Astell&Kern has consistently developed and perfected over the years.

The A&futura SE180 user-interface has been enhanced to offer an experience consistent with an Android smartphone. A new navigation bar pinned at the bottom of the screen allows users to control playback and skip tracks from any screen, while a single swipe returns to the previous screen. Album artwork pops from the screen with the A&futura SE180, as its the first Astell&Kern player to boast a full HD display. This 5-inch touchscreen packs a 1920x1080 pixel resolution, 16.7 million colours and 441 PPI (Pixels Per Inch), resulting in a clean and sharp user-interface design.
