The SE200 is the second model from the AstellKern Afutura premium line of Digital Audio Players.
World's First Multi-DAC DAP
The Afutura SE200 is the world's first Multi DAC player. Since the release of the Dual DAC AK120 player in 2013 AstellKern noticed there weren't any products featuring more than Dual DACs in the last seven years. This prompted the question "Why hasn't there been more than two DACs in a player?" Now they are the first manufacturer to use more than two DACs and the result is the SE200.
The SE200 features the latest audiophile DACs from ESS the ES9068AS in a Dual DAC configuration. AstellKern then added a single AK4499EQ AKM's flagship DAC that is used in the flagship SP2000. Combining the three DACs they have produced the world's first multi-DAC DAP.
This pairing exhibits the philosophy of the Afutura line to pursue fundamentally different sound than found in typical DAPs.
AstellKern is not content to keeping things the same all the time. They are constantly working to improve on what they have already achieved to bring the most accurately reproduced and best sound to their products.
Independent AMP Sections Designed to Match DAC Characteristics
The SE200 was not designed with one AMP circuit but multiple different AMP designs to optimize the different characteristics of the AKM and ESS DACs that are used in the player.
By separating the signals for each channel of Balanced and Unbalanced the design boasts independent circuits that do not interfere with each other to provide the best sound possible.
Your Own Sound Style
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.
Playback Information Reflected In Light
The SE200 features a volume wheel LED that displays a variety of music playback information including volume range bit-rate of track currently playing and the current DAC that is being used for playback of music.
MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording. The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to stream or download. Visit mqa.co.uk for more information. AstellKern SE200 includes MQA technology which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams delivering the sound of the original master recording.
