  • SE180 Combines Innovation and Fun

    The third product in the A&futura line, the SE180, continues the trend of exciting innovation for Astell&Kern products,
    while providing the uncompromised sound quality Astell&Kern is famous for.

    With the SE180, in addition to superb audio technology, we wanted to show users an element of fun that is hard to find
    in most Hi-Fi products.

    The DNA of innovation found in the A&futura line continues with the SE180.
    It is an advanced audio system created with the technology Astell&Kern is known for around the world.

    Interchangeable All-in-One Module
    TERATON ALPHA Audio Technology from Astell&Kern
    Next Generation Astell&Kern AMP Technology
    Updated UI with Added Functions for Convenience

    With the SE180, premium Hi-Fi Sound is now available through the use of interchangeable, all-in-one modules, by Astell&Kern.

    Interchangeable All-in-One

    With the SE180, we wanted to expand on the multi-DAC idea that was first introduced with the SE200.

    Like the SE200, different DACs can be used in one DAP, but we wanted to do something different for the SE180. The introduction of Interchangeable All-in-One Modules, carry on the multi-DAC experience, but add a new and fun experience. This reflects the DNA of the innovation that the A&futura line is known for.

    The SE180 is a module-separated product that increases the convenience of connection between the main body of the player and the module. It features an innovative double-locking design that securely connects each component while providing smooth lines that naturally flow without any sense of separateness between the two pieces.

    By applying different DAC/AMP configurations, adjusting tuning and outputs for each module, the user can choose the most suitable module for Premium Hi-Fi Sound.

    The default configuration module contains the ESS ES9038PRO, an 8-channel DAC mainly used for premium home audio equipment. This DAC provides a wider dynamic range and more detailed sophistication. The module supports 2.5mm, 3.5mm, and 4.4mm connections to allow for a greater variety of headphones/IEMs.

    Circuit Separation Structure of Main Body and Module

    By physically separating the main body from the All-in-One module,
    we completely block power and RF noise that may occur from the main body.

    This creates an independent structure that prevents noise from interfering with music playback.
