Product Information

Astell & Kern took the original design of AK120 and redesigned it into a simple, but refined form. With the latest technology, the deeper and stronger sound of the SA700 delivers new experiences and value not found in other products.

Features

  • Emotional Retro Design
  • Intuitive LED Indicator
  • New Special GUI
  • Stainless Steel Body for Premium Sound
  • Ideal Size for Portability
  • Dual DAC of AK4492ECB from AKM
  • 32bit / 384kHz, Native DSD256 support

First DAP Using AKM AK4492ECB DAC

The SA700 is the first DAP to use an AK4492ECB Dual DAC to give a new sound signature. AKM's AK4492ECB is a DAC that aims to achieve the best performance in the industry by utilizing the technology obtained by developing AK4497EQ. It has lower power consumption and similar audio performance compared to AK4497EQ, making it the best DAC for a portable DAP.

Unchanging Value, Stainless Steel

The SA700 uses stainless steel, which is corrosion-resistant and durable, for maximum material strength and beauty. Since it takes a lot of time, skill and cost to process the material, it is often only used for expensive products. The SA700 uses stainless steel because it provides the perfect sound.

Deliver the perfect original sound

SA700 offers the optimal condition to deliver the perfect original sound. SA700 is capable of bit-to-bit playback up to 32bit 384kHz and native DSD playback up to 11.2MHz, delivering detailed, distortion-free sound just as the artist intended.

Intuitive LED Indicator

The LEDs around the volume wheel are not just visual effects, but provide the listener information including volume and status of the currently playing song. Different colors are displayed depending on the bit depth of the song being played, and 150 levels of red saturation are displayed to reflect the current player volume.

Using Open APP Service

The Open APP Service enables the user to install specific APK music streaming apps to the device. Copy the desired APK into the Open Service folder of the product and install the relevant App in the Menu-Service of the product.
