New Release: Astell&Kern Kann Cube
More Power, Less Noise
The Kann Cube was designed with a focus on high fidelity with powerful output and low noise. The newly designed powerful amplifier and audio circuitry have been strategically implemented to offer a very low noise floor.
This high powered monster was “designed to deliver a heavy and solid impression.” Indeed, that’s the impression it makes. With 3 different power output options of High / Mid / Low, this thing can drive any headphone with unprecedented power never seen before in any portable device (12Vrms for Balanced output and 6Vrms for Unbalanced output).
Another unique feature is the 5-Pin mini XLR for easier connection to home systems and active speakers with balanced connections. In addition, there’s an optical out, a balanced 2.5mm and an unbalanced 3.5mm out.
Dual ESS Sabre Pro DAC
The Cube sports a dual 32-bit, 8-channel ESS Sabre Pro DAC, as well as native bit-to-bit DSD playback up to 11.2MHz. And its aluminum structure holds a 5 inch 720 x 1280 touch display.
This Cube also offers 128GB built in memory, in addition to the freqload of external memory you can stuff in there.
