Astell&Kern SE100 overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit includes an Astell&Kern A&futura Series SE100 Portable Audio Player and a leather case. This kit gives you everything you need to enjoy audiophile-level audio on the go. The SE100 delivers high-end audio processing with its ES9038PRO 8-channel DAC and octa-core CPU. Coupled with a femtosecond clock and 123 dB of SNR at 4.1 Vrms of output power, the player provides portable audio that's designed to reproduce little noise, precisely timed digital file synchronization, and pure hi-fi sound. The leather case is designed specifically for the SE100's unique dimensions, providing a textured feel and guarding against accidental scratches. The case features a Toscano leather construction. Toscano is produced in the Tuscan region of Italy and offers a soft, textured feel in your hand.

  • Astell&Kern A&futura Series SE100 Player (Titan Silver)

    Boasting the ability to play bit-to-bit DSD playback, the Titan Silver Astell&Kern A&futura Series SE100 is a portable audio player for audiophiles and hi-fi enthusiasts. Utilizing an ESS SABRE ES9038PRO DAC, the player provides low harmonic distortion, high dynamic range, and bit-to-bit playback over an 8-channel DAC.

    Listen to multiple formats, including WAV, OGG, APE, and yes, DSD (DSDnative, DSD128, and DSD256). Look at the 5" touchscreen while doing so—it provides a resolution of 720 x 1280, the better to promote its intuitive user experience.

    Speedy transfer and lag-free operation is made possible by the octa-core CPU, which also allows for fast booting times and a detailed sonic reproduction of your music files. Hear music through the 3.5mm unbalanced phone jack, or the balanced 4-pole 2.5mm jack, which provides an even more pristine experience. If battery performance is important to you, you'll be pleased by the SE100's ability to play for 11 hours at a time off a two hour fast-charge—though the fast-charger is available separately, and thankfully, the unit boasts a USB 3.0 port. This allows you to transfer data from your machine while charging all the while.

    The SABRE PRO series offers high dynamic range (DNR) with impressively low levels of total harmonic distortion plus noise (THD+N) in a 32-bit, 8-channel DAC. All SABRE PRO DACs feature ESS's patented 32-bit HyperStream DAC technology, which delivers professional-level sound quality and performance.
    Quality Amps for Low-Noise Performance
    The SE100 sports 4.1 Vrms of balanced output power with 123 dB of SNR (signal to noise ratio). At the same time, the noise level on single-ended cable is even lower, producing 122 dB of SNR. 
    High-Precision Clock
    A voltage-controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO) high-precision clock has been utilized to bring a performance of 800 femtoseconds.
    Octa-Core CPU
    The A&futura SE100 is equipped with an octa-core CPU. This allows the player to produce the exact musical detail present in the original recording without distortion and provides quick, lag-free operation. The machine sports faster booting times, speedy file transfers, lag-free processing, and an intuitive user interface.
    Bit-to-Bit DSD Playback
    The A&futura SE100 supports native bit-to-bit DSD playback up to 11.2 MHz. The music is played back bit-for-bit, just as the artist and engineer intended for it to be heard.
    Other Features at a Glance
    • ES9038PRO 8-channel DAC
    • 32-bit bit-to-bit playback
    • USB Type-C 
    • File transfer speeds up to 5 Gbps 
    • Supports data transfer and charging from the same cable 
    • Charging with a separately-available fast charger (at 9V/1.67A) takes only two hours and allows up to 11 hours of continuous playback

A&futura Series SE100 Player (Titan Silver) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super detail; rich, layered bass. Smooth and neutral sounding, detailed, bass slam, clear, extended treble, and a vast sound stage. Audiophile level player, need decent 'phones and good source files to reveal full potential of player, but also forgiving to lower quality, mp3. Rich, smooth, neutral sound signature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power, Detail, Musicality This player sounds wonderful. Must have top 'phones. Will not repeat favorable reviews on net, suffice it to say that with the right ear/head phones, this is a top audiophile experience.
