SA700

Past Meets Present,
SA700

With the launch of Astell&Kern's first product in 2012, we always aim to deliver uncompromising sound to music lovers.

One day we decided to ask ourselves a question - "What if we combined Astell&Kern's first starting point and present?"
- We wanted to combine the analog sensibilities that remained in our hearts with the sound technology
that has evolved over the years since our first product was released.
We wanted to create the best sound that only we can do.

"Past Meets Present" The SA700 is a product where past emotions and current technology meet.
The SA700 is an evolution of technology and design that deliver the ultimate sound to Astell&Kern original design and sensibility.

Features
First DAP Using AKM AK4492ECB DAC
he SA700 is the first DAP to use a 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 a 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 Feel it at the SA700.
