Astell&Kern KANN ALPHA Digital Audio Player (Onyx Black)
ASK002Regular price £1,099.00
The KANN ALPHA Digital Audio Player, in a stunning onyx black finish from Astell&Kern is not only an ultra-high output powerhouse, capable of driving any headphone or IEM, it is also the first DAP to feature a 4.4mm balanced output that is completely noise-free, thanks to a built-in independent structure that completely blocks interference from unused outputs, preventing noise from occurring.
Equipped with the latest version of Bluetooth, Bluetooth 5.0, and 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 64GB of internal memory, it can store around 625 tracks (24 bit/96kHz, 4 minute-long, 90MB), ample for a substantial music library.
Featuring a light and durable aluminium body, the design of the KANN ALPHA displays the beauty from the combination of delicate details and the substantial weight from its powerful performance. Asymmetric triangles that resemble the identity of Astell&Kern surround the volume wheel on the solid, sturdy, bold and column-like body of the player. The back side of the wheel protection surface was lifted around the volume control to create a design like that of a mudguard of a car, helping to protect it. A gold PVD coating line was added to the ceramic surface around the 4.4mm balanced output. The gold coating minimizes contact noise from output and also adds a stunning contrast to the all black finish. Not just beautiful but functional too.
