Astell&Kern A&futura SE200 Digital Audio Player (Moon Silver)
ASK001Regular price £1,799.00
The SE200 is the second model from the Astell&Kern A&futura premium line of Digital Audio Players. Equipped with the world's first multi-DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) system, using dedicated amplifiers for each one which means that individually they are perfectly tuned to the DAC, optimising the best audio characteristics from each.
Using the improved Open APP service, you can easily install your favourite apps such as Spotify, Deezer, Amazon Prime Music and TuneIn internet radio and with an impressive 256GB of internal memory, the SE200 offers twice the storage space of the previous SE100 model. It stores around 2500 tracks (24 bit/96kHz, 4 minute-long, 90MB), ample for a substantial HiRes music library.
The vibration-free processing machines used by Astell&Kern are the same ones used by expensive Swiss watch manufacturers, which is reflected in the crafting of the volume wheel, processed precisely like the crown of a luxury watch for the best operating feel. Using multi-coloured LED's the wheel displays a variety of music playback information including volume range, bit-rate of track currently playing and the current DAC that is being used for playback of music.
Featuring a light and durable aluminium body, the SE200 combines trapezoidal straight lines and curves. These curves are the result of ultra-precision metal processing that have been perfected by Astell&Kern and after experimenting with different materials for the rear of the SE200, they created a new ceramic rear cover which not only improves wireless network performance, but produces a more premium feel to the player. The use of laser ground extension technology gives you the best sound possible, without interference or distortion. Not just beautiful but functional too.
