First DAP Using AKM AK4492ECB DACThe SA700 is the first DAP to use an AK4492ECB Dual DAC to give a new sound signature.
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.

Only Astell&Kern’s Sound Technology know-how has made the DAC’s performance even more perfect. Now you can enjoy premium sound close to the original performance with the SA700 and the AK4492ECB.

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. Stainless Steel delivers both luxury and balanced, clean 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.

* LED can be turned on or off according to user setting.

New GUI where the past and the present coexist
SA700 maintains the convenience of Astell&Kern’s UI combined with a new GUI that reminds users of our 1st generation players. You can combine Astell&Kern’s past and present through the GUI which is reinterpreted by using Astell&Kern’s various color identities.
