ASTELL & KERN KANN MAX. Portable player

The KANN MAX is a portable digital audio player designed from the ground up to provide audiophile-level sound at a very competitive price. On the other hand, its status as the fourth product in the Astell&Kern KANN range means that it not only incorporates its most significant technical refinements, but also innovations from the elite of the South Korean firm, to which must be added a few more compact and less weight. Thus, the KANN MAX allows to have no less than 4 levels of gain -with a spectacular maximum value of 15 Vrms in the "Super" output mode!- to guarantee full compatibility with a very wide spectrum of headphones and offer the user unprecedented flexibility, putting in your hands the ability to fine-tune your favorite recordings to suit a home system, car audio or any other listening environment. Regarding the digital audio section, let us point out that the KANN MAX is the first model of the KANN range that incorporates four of the prestigious ES9038Q2M D/A conversion "chips" (DAC's) from ESS Technology. Using an elaborate Quad configuration allows a DAC to be assigned to each of the four individual amplifier channels for a more expressive sound accompanied by performance unmatched in a product of this class and price. For its part, Astell&Kern's exclusive TERATON ALPHA technology eliminates noise to achieve more efficient power consumption and amplification throughout the path traveled by the audio signal.
