SE200 is the second model from the Astell&Kern A&futura premium line of Digital Audio Players, and the world's first Multi DAC player (1x AK4499EQ + 2x ES9068AS).
Since the release of the Dual DAC AK120 player in 2013, there have been no products featuring more than two DACs in the same unit. So Astell&Kern set out to become the first manufacturer to use more than two DACs - the result is the SE200.
Featuring the latest audiophile DACs from ESS, the ES9068AS in a Dual DAC configuration, plus a single AK4499EQ, AKM's flagship DAC (as used in the A&K flagship SP2000). The SE200 is therefore the first true multi-DAC DAP.
In addition, SE200 was designed with but multiple AMP circuits and different AMP designs to optimise 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, Astell&Kern designed independent circuits that do not interfere with each other to provide the best sound possible.
SE200 includes DAC filters to create your own sound, audio performance to feel premium, Hi-Fi sound presented by Astell&Kern, and upgrades that add a premium value experience.
SE200 also features a volume wheel LED that 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.
Another welcome addition is MQA - (Master Quality Authenticated), which is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording. The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to stream or download. SE200 includes MQA technology, which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams, delivering the sound of the original master recording.
