The Astell & Kern KANN Cube
A perfect blend of style, design and stunning performance at an realistic price!
The KANN Cube supports up to 32-bit/384kHz PCM and DSD256 playback natively. Like its siblings, the KANN Cube supports just about every lossless and lossy codec on the market, including FLAC, ALAC, WAV, APE, AIFF, DFF, DSF, OGG, AAC, and MP3. It will also play DSD files via DoP (DSD over PCM), in which a DSD file is sent on top of PCM data frames. The player won’t, however, play protected AAC files, such as those downloaded from Apple Music’s subscription-based streaming service. Mac users will need the free Android File Transfer app to copy music files to the KANN Cube’s internal storage.
The Astell & Kern KANN Cube has a full MQA decoder built in, and MQA playback is supported both via downloaded MQA audio files and through the Tidal app (for those who subscribe to the Tidal Masters tier of that music-streaming service).
Support for aptX HD means the KANN Cube can wirelessly stream music over Bluetooth in 24-bit resolution at a 48kHz sampling rate.
