Astell & Kern SA700
A superb AK digital-audio-player, Astell & Kern SA700 offers high performance at a realistic price!
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 analogue sensibilities that remained in our hearts with the sound technology that has evolved over the years since our first product was released.
“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.
