Astell & Kern SE200
The A&futura SE200 is the world’s first Multi-DAC player. Since the release of the Dual DAC AK120 player in 2013, we have not seen any products feature more than Dual DACs in the last seven years. This prompted us to ask the question, “Why hasn’t there been more than two DACs in a player?” So, we set out to become the first manufacturer to use more than two DACs and the result is the SE200. 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 three 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.
