Astell&Kern is the ultimate Hi-Fi audio system
Astell&Kern is the ultimate digital music source that brings you Mastering Quality Sound or MQS. Astell means ‘Stars’ in Latin and Kern means ‘Center’ in German. We believe Astell&Kern is the center of music.
Original music performances recently have been captured in digital almost exactly as they were performed due to new and advanced recording technologies currently available. These great-sounding recordings are mainly listened to in inferior sound formats, such as MP3 or streaming services. With the debut of the MP3 format, music lovers scarified the quality of the sound for the convenience of being able to carry their music collection wherever they went. Because MP3 heavily compresses the original file for the sake of convenience, you only hear inferior vocals and instruments, and the full soundstage and ambience from the original recordings is missing. The movement of the original performance often disappears when listening to compressed MP3 music. After agonizing over these issues, Astell&Kern was our solution to the poor quality of musical sound for the sake of portability, and our way to ultimately bring back the original sound quality of the music, MQS, back to music artists, recording engineers and professionals.
Astell&Kern pursuit is to provide the natural and original sound without distortion. It offers almost the exact presence with tiny details you wouldn’t have noticed from other music systems by playing back high-resolution music bit for bit, exactly as it was recorded. The exact sound without missing any bit of the live performance in recordings is what Astell&Kern is known for.
The power of true sound from Astell&Kern has been experienced and also from famous audio exhibitions around the world. Astell&Kern is now admired by music lovers from many countries, including USA, China, Japan, UK, France, and many more around the world.
The Answer to the Value of Premium
The SE200 is the second model from the Astell&Kern A&futura premium line of Digital Audio Players. After the first A&futura model, the SE100, we were again thinking about the nature of the word premium. We decided, “Let's make One device that nobody can duplicate.”
We wanted to try something no one else has tried before.
Every single element and feature of the SE200 has been updated to make it the best of the A&futura line.
- Equipped with the first Multi-DAC (2 x ESS ES9068AS + 1 x AKM AK4499EQ)
- Independent AMP structure designed to compliment each DAC's characteristics
- DAC Filters to choose your preferred sound profile
- Audio performance to feel premium Hi-Fi sound presented by AK
- Upgrades that add a Premium value experience
- Octa-Core CPU for outstanding response and performance
- Portable and durable aluminum body
- Open APP support for music streaming
First Multi-DAC DAP
The A&futura SE200 is the first Multi-DAC player. The SE200 features the latest audiophile DACs from ESS, the Sabre ES9068AS in a Dual DAC configuration. We then added a single AK4499EQ, AKM’s flagship DAC that is used in our flagship SP2000. Combining the 3 DACs, we have produced the world’s first multi-DAC DAP.
This pairing exhibits the philosophy of the A&futura line to pursue fundamentally different sound than found in typical DAPs.
To properly implement multiple DACs, we needed to spend twice the amount of time on development and double the amount of time in properly tuning the player.
A&K is not content to keeping things the same all the time. We are constantly working to improve on what we have already achieved which is to bring the most accurately reproduced and best sound to our products.
We hope you have a completely new music experience with the SE200.
Independent AMP Sections Designed to Match DAC Characteristics
The SE200 was not designed with one AMP circuit, but multiple, different AMP designs to optimize the different characteristics of the AKM and ESS DACs that are used in the player.
By separating the signals for each channel of Balanced and Unbalanced output, we designed independent circuits that do not interfere with each other to provide the best sound possible.
Your Own Sound Style
The SE200 goes beyond just selecting the best DAC for the type of music you are listening to.
You can now further customize your sound by choosing from a variety of DAC filters provided by the DAC manufacturers allowing you to choose your own preferred sound profile.
Open APP Service for Music Streaming Services
The Open APP Service enables you to install specific APK music streaming apps to the device.
Streaming Services Available:
Stream your music when you are on the go with offline mode in select applications.

The player has a unique sound algorithm , quiet different than the Kann Cube ( although the can more powerful with huge amp )
I don’t like the new blue menu. It’s quiet harsh for the eyes. I prefer the Kann ones
Ofcource this is more portable than the KAnn CUbe. So you can move it around with you anywhere you want !
Now the KAnn will sit at home
