    The KANN Portable High-Definition Portable Sound System from Astell&Kern is a pocket-sized audio system capable of ultra-high-resolution audio playback. The device delivers distortion-free sound without data loss by operating at 32-bit/384 kHz, as well as native DSD playback up to DSD256 (1-bit/11.2 MHz).

    KANN utilizes an integrated single-channel KM AK4490 DAC and balanced output to provide exceptional sonic quality and detail. It can also be used as an external DAC when connected to a PC via USB. The built-in high-powered amplifier can not only drive high-impedance headphones, but can also reliably reproduce high-quality sound with low-impedance speakers. Additionally, the unit is equipped with a line-out circuit designed to set the output values in four levels, depending on the users listening preference. With the selectable output function, you can fine-tune your sound to suit a home system, car audio, or any other listening environment.

    The 4.0" touchscreen provides smartphone-style control over playback, while the brushed aluminum body and volume wheel provide a smooth analog feel. The built-in battery recharges via USB 3.0 and lasts for up to 15 hours of playback. Additionally, the unit offers a "fast charger" function, which provides up to 6.5 hours of playback time with a single hour charge. The KANN ships with a USB Type-C cable, two SD card slot covers, two microSD card slot covers, and two protective films to protect the front screen.


    Key Features

    • Powerful, High Quality Output
      Astell&Kern has introduced a new product design that cleverly incorporates a high-performance amplifier into a player for an ideal merger of two independent devices that supports 7 Vrms output when connected via high-gain balanced output. The KANN can easily drive high impedance headphones as well as produce the highest quality sound with low-impedance speakers.
    • High Resolution Playback
      KANN is capable of bit-to-bit playback up to 32-bit 384 kHz and native DSD playback up to 11.2 MHz, delivering detailed, distortion-free sound just as the artist intended
    • Scalability Using USB Audio
      To increase flexibility of use, you can connect additional USB Audio to KANN via the micro-USB port – KANN allows output conversion per the specifications of the external USB Audio that supports DoP (DSD over PCM) or PCM, and provides continuous music playback with charging via the Type-C USB port while connected to the external USB Audio
    • High Quality Sound from Audio Files Stored on a PC
      Supporting the bit-to-bit playback up to 32-bit 384 kHz when connected to the PC for use as a USB DAC, the KANN produces richer sounds with superior spatial effects and resolution that go far beyond the limits of any PC sound card
    • Wireless Network Connections
      KANN supports wireless networking DLNA (Ver. 1.0), which makes it easy to work with PC/NAS on the same AP network and through the AK Connect app supporting smartphone/tablet computer interfaces.
    • Dual Memory Card Slots
      KANN has an internal memory of 64GB, but this can be easily and flexibly boosted via the unit's dual memory card slots for a total of 832 GB
    • Fast Charging
      Enjoy up to 6.5 hours of your favorite music with a single 1 hour charge through the fast charger. There is no fear of a dead battery when on a long journey as the 6,200mAh large capacity battery offers 15 hours of continuous playback

    Great DAP

    Great ergonomics, accepts very large memory cards allowing for large high res libraries, powerful amp and highly detailed Dac (i have had many moments discovering new textures in tracks I had never heard before) As far as audiophile DAPs go the price value ratio here given the recent Black Friday price drop to $799 is hard to beat.
