”A portable music player with a choice of DACs and a benchmark-setting performance”. ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 award-winner.

Twin DACs – choose the sound you want

The Astell & Kern A&futura SE200 is the world’s first player with a multi-DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) system. Quite simply, the SE200 uses not just twin DACs of the same brand but two different brands of DAC altogether. Choose between the single AK4499EQ and ES9068AS Dual DAC for the type of sound you want. For a more precise and dynamic sound, the AK4499EQ is usually best, while the ES9068AS counters with a smoother and richer sound – the choice is yours, each and every time you listen.

Amp outputs to match – with balanced output option
Not content with fitting two DAC systems, the SE200 uses dedicated amplifiers for each – right down to separate headphone sockets. Dedicated amps means that each is perfectly tuned to the DAC, optimising the best audio characteristics from each. Balanced, 4-pol, 2.5mm headphone sockets are paired with regular 3.5mm ones for the choice of headphone type. Using a balanced signal between the source and headphones reduces noise and interference and is especially handy on the move.

DAC filters for further fine-tuning
Taking the individual sound further, the SE200 comes fitted with a six-way digital filter. Choose between Natural Tone, Acoustic Tone, Traditional Tone, Harmonic Sound, Acoustic Sound and Traditional Sound filters. Each filter varies the response for a sound that adjusts from sharp to smooth.

Flexible format player
There are many HD Audio recordings already available to download online and you may already have started a collection on your computer or NAS drive. Where the SE200 really scores is being able to take those recordings with you - in the highest quality possible. The SE200 supports a wide range of file formats, including WAV, FLAC, WMA, MP3, OGG, APE, AAC, ALAC, AIFF, DFF, DSF and MQA.

Support up to 384kHz/32-bit audio and Native DSD256
With support for files up to 384kHz/32-bit, bit to bit playback, the SE200 plays back the highest quality files, bit perfectly. As an alternative to PCM sampling, many of the large music labels, including Sony, support DSD files. DSD is renowned for its huge dynamic range, ‘inky’ quiet backdrop and subtle detail that gives music ‘life’ and realism. The SE200 offers native DSD support up to DSD256.

Install the music apps you want
Using the improved Open APP service, you can install the music apps you want on the player. These include favourites such as Spotify, Deezer, Amazon Prime Music and TuneIn Internet radio.

Double the memory – with 256GB built-in
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. Add an optional 1TB microSD card and this extends to 1.25TB, putting a lifetime’s music collection in the palm of your hand.

Volume wheel with integrated LED featuring bit depth status
Integrated into the volume control, a multi-colour LED signals the current file’s bit depth - red for 16-bit, green for 24-bit, blue for 32-bit and purple for DSD files. The volume wheel itself is manufactured to the highest standards – machined like the crown on a luxury Swiss watch.

Premium quality
Featuring an aluminium body, the SE200 is light, durable and resists outside electrical interference. At the back, a new high-gloss, ceramic cover provides a stylish and premium feel. The ceramic cover is also designed to improve the wireless performance compared to the previous glass version.

Tailor the sound, like never before, with the multi-DAC Astell & Kern A&futura SE200.
