A veritable audio powerhouse, the KANN CUBE High-Resolution Portable Audio Player from Astell&Kern offers audiophiles three different power output options. Choose from low, mid/normal, or high gain, which ranges from 2 to 12 Vrms. Astell&Kern have incorporated an OP amp and volume IC to manage this power and deliver a natural audio experience with minimal distortion.

To help ensure extremely high fidelity and sound reproduction to match the full depth of the original recording, Astell&Kern implemented dual ESS ES9038PRO SABRE DACs. These DACs are designed to be used with pro audio equipment and they utilize a 32-bit 8-channel DAC for each left and right audio channel. Each of the eight channels is sent through an analog AMP block to ensure delivery of the full sound stage, letting you enjoy each characteristic of your recordings.

These DACs work in conjunction with the quad-core CPU to help deliver accurate playback for native 32-bit/384 kHz audio, bit-for-bit, as the original artist and audio engineer intended it to be heard. The KANN CUBE lets you interface with your music library via a large 5" 720p HD touchscreen display, which includes support for the Open APP service, giving you the ability to install specific APK streaming apps, such as Deezer, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, SiriusXM, and more.

5-pin Mini XLR Output
  • A first for Astell&Kern players, the KANN CUBE allows you to connect it to your home audio system or active speakers using a 5-pin mini XLR connection. The use of this connection is engineered to lower the noise floor even further for pure and clean audio playback.
Wireless Playback
  • With support for Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) networks, you can stream content from external storage or the internet.
Bluetooth 4.2 with aptX HD
  • Listening to your audio anywhere is even more convenient without wires. Pair a set of (optional) Bluetooth headphones and stream your music wirelessly. The KANN CUBE supports aptX HD to help ensure high-definition audio playback.
