Past Meets Present, SA700
From the launch of Astell&Kern's first product in 2012, we have always aimed to deliver uncompromising sound to music lovers. We never forget Astell&Kern's motto at each step of the way, the ultimate sound delivery close to the original studio recording.
Looking back on the last seven years, we wanted to combine the analog sensibilities of our previous years with the DAP technology that has evolved since our first generation of DAPs released.
“Past Meets Present” Introducing the SA700, a high resolution portable where past sensibility meets current technology. The SA700 debuts with an evolution of technology and design that delivers the ultimate sound with precise detail close to the original and captures Astell&Kern’s core values.

The SA700 is a re-designed of the original AK120 into a simple yet refined form. With the latest technology, deeper and stronger sound, it delivers new experiences and values not found in other products.
First DAP Using AKM AK4492ECB DAC
The SA700 is the first DAP to implement the AK4492ECB DAC.
AKM's AK4492ECB is a DAC that aims to achieve the best performance in the industry based on the technology gained from developing the AK4497EQ.
Only Astell&Kern's DAP technology know-how makes the DAC's performance more complete.
Now you can enjoy premium sound close to the original with the SA700 and AK4492ECB technology.
The Unchanging Value of Stainless Steel
The SA700 uses stainless steel, which is corrosion-resistant and durable for maximum material strength and beauty.
Stainless steel takes a lot of time and technical skills to process, therefore the material is often used for expensive products because of its high cost. However, the material also has an added benefit of its quality sound reproduction and is one of the reasons why we use it for the SA700.
Stainless steel delivers both luxury and a balanced, clear sound. Experience it with the SA700.
Deliver the perfect original sound
SA700 offers the optimal condition to deliver perfect original sound. SA700 is capable of bit-to-bit playback up to 32bit/384kHz and native DSD playback up to 11.2MHz, delivering detailed, distortion-free sound just as the artist intended.
Intuitive LED Indicator
The LED around the volume wheel is not just a visual effect, but an intuitive LED indicator that shows the frequency of the file data being played and the volume control.
Different colors are displayed depending on the bit depth of the song being played as well as 150 levels of red saturation can be applied in the volume adjustment state to feel the vibrant LED change.
*The LED can be turned on or off in the user settings menu.
GUI Where the Past and the Present Coexist
The SA700 has a new GUI that incorporates hints of nostalgia from the first generation with the current GUI that can be found on the latest portable lineup. You can see Astell&Kern's past and present through the GUI that is reinterpreted by utilizing Astell&Kern's identity color in various ways.
