Extreme POWER, KANN CUBE
KANN CUBE is the second model from the KANN line, which focuses on high fidelity with powerful output and low noise.
This player is designed to offer a very low noise floor, even with its massive power output.
The Absolute Audio Powerhouse
KANN CUBE offers 3 different power output options of High / Mid / Low, which can drive any headphone with unprecedented power never seen before in any portable device - 12Vrms for Balanced output and 6Vrms for Unbalanced output. To provide a natural and neutral audio experience with minimal distortion, a newly designed OP Amp and Volume IC manages power optimally and efficiently.
ESS ES9038PRO SABRE Dual DAC
KANN CUBE uses two 8-channel DACs, the ES9038PRO, one for the left and one for the right channel.
As each DAC chip sends out 8 channels of audio signal through the Astell&Kern Analog AMP Block,
you experience unlimited sound stage and the full depth of the original performance.
5-pin Mini XLR output for even less noise
KANN CUBE offers a 5-pin mini XLR connector for the first time in an Astell&Kern player. Thanks to the even lower noise floor and higher audio output through the XLR connection, you can enjoy pure, clear audio playback. It offers easier connection to your home audio systems and active speakers with balanced connections.
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.
Astell&Kern KANN CUBE includes MQA technology, which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams,
delivering the sound of the original master recording.
The isolated sides of the rectangles on KANN CUBE are not simply for looks.
They emphasize the role of the device by placing the player's functions
in the correct place for a more intuitive interface and better usability,
while also providing a sense of aesthetic stability.
The pursuit of connectivity and consistency of form and function is at the core of Astell&Kern's design philosophy.
Combining Astell&Kern's player performance with the high-powered AMP, KANN Cube can produce the most powerful performance in the Astell&Kern player lineup and is designed to deliver a heavy and solid impression.
