"Clarity, dynamics, rhythmic fluidity and insight. It’s bolder-sounding and more tonally neutral than some of its siblings, with Astell & Kern trading some of its typical richness for a faster, more articulate listen."

"It captures its fine details and dynamic fluctuations and conveys it all on a crystal clear canvas that is as engaging as it is informative."

The SE200 is the second model from the Astell&Kern A&futura premium line of Digital Audio Players. The SE200 is equipped with the world's first Multi DAC, it also offers an independent AMP structure designed to compliment each DAC's chracterstics. 

The SE200 features the latest audiophile DACs from ESS, the ES9068AS in a Dual DAC configuration. We then added a single AK4499EQ, AKM's flagship DAC that is used in our flagship SP2000. Combining the three DACs, we have produced the world's first multi-DAC DAP. This pairing exhibits the philosophy of the A&futura line to pursue fundamentally different sound than found in typical DAPs. To properly implement multiple DACs, we needed to spend twice the amount of time on development and double the amount of time in properly tuning the player. The SE200 maintains a similar design identity to the SE100 which combines trapezoidal straight lines and curves. These curves are the result of ultra-precision metal processing that has been perfected by Astell&Kern. After experimenting with different materials for the rear of the SE200, we created a new ceramic rear cover, instead of the glass found on the previous generation SE100. This material not only improves wireless network performance, but produces a more premium feel to the player. New manufacturing techniques were developed to precisely mold the high-gloss ceramic cover involving seven separate processes. A low-speed processing method is used to prevent cracking and produce a durable backing. The results are a rear cover that is not just beautiful, but functional.

The aluminium body on the S200 provides maximum sound quality, while suppressing noise as much as possible. The use of laser ground extension technology gives you the best sound possible, without interference or distortion.The vibration-free processing machines used by Astell&Kern are the same ones used by expensive Swiss luxury watch manufacturers. This is reflected in the crafting of the volume wheel which is processed precisely like the crown of a luxury watch for the best operating feel. The SE200 goes beyond selecting the best DAC for type
of music you are listening to. You can now further customize your sound by choosing from a variety of DAC filters provided by the DAC manufacturer .With the SE200, you can now choose your own preferred sound profile.

The A&futura SE200 is the first to apply a new material, called a ceramic plate to the top and rear of the player. Unlike conventional glass, you can see that the light flows deeply and softly around the top and rear of the player. The rear cover with curved cuts meets the side surface of the player and gently wraps around the wheel, showing a smooth flow of light. Discover the subtle details Astell&Kern uses to enhance the beauty of the SE200, from the ceramic plates that are precisely processed to fit the aluminium body of the player to the precise lines that encompass the player.
