Astell&Kern a&Futura SE200 - New DAP from Astell&Kern

Astell&Kern announced their new SE200 DAP. You can watch the Head-Fi video on it below.

From Astell&Kern

“Introducing the world’s first multi-DAC DAP, the Astell&Kern A&futura SE200. The SE200 is the first DAP to feature DACs from two different manufacturers, ESS and AKM, in one device. Independent AMPs compliment each DAC. Available in July 2020”


Interesting. Now I wonder how good the SP3000 is going to be later this year or maybe next year… 8 DAC chips total (2 per output), and/or a tube section, Android 9 or later, 21hrs battery life!!!

I’m getting eggcited!!!


There seems to be different battery life ratings depending on which DAC module is used? I wonder if battery life can be further improved if one of the DACs can be turned off.
