At half the price of A&K’s flagship digital audio player (DAP), the A&ultimate SP2000, the A&futura SE100 is a slimmer, svelter, more pocketable DAP that doesn’t skimp where it matters most: killer sound. 

Need For Speed

The SE100 was built on the principle that a DAP should be fast. You’ll notice this principle at work in its boot times, file transfers, and processing speeds, powered by a cutting-edge octa-core processor. You’ll also notice it at work with its lightning-fast charge times. 

Impossibly Pure Sound

With a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 122dB, total harmonic noise plus distortion (THD+N) at 0.0007%, and a balanced out, the only sound the A&future SE100 produces is pure music, plain and simple. 

Bleeding Edge DAC

Beneath the A&futura SE100’s sleek silver hood lies an ES9038PRO SABRE DAC, the vanguard of decoder technology, touting the industry’s highest dynamic range (DNR) of 132db in a 32-bit, 8-channel DAC. In layman’s terms? Your brother-in-law’s fancy home theater system is going to sound like a pawnshop boombox by comparison.

Leave the Charger Behind

Forgetting your charger at home is an unrivaled modern hardship. The torment. The anguish. The grim realization that at some miserable point during the day you will be without. Save yourself from all that with the SE100. Its 3,700mAH Li-Polymer battery goes for a whopping eleven hours. 

The DAP With Saddle Bags

With 128GB of built-in memory and up to 1TB of external memory, the SE100 can bear a mighty load.  

MQA-Ready

Would you die a little if we told you that MP3 files deliver just 10% of original studio recordings? That’s one-tenth of the nuance, depth, and richness that the artist intended for you to hear. MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) files, on the other hand, deliver the full, uncompressed sound of the original master recordings in all their richness. The A&futura SE100 supports this technology, delivering the best possible version of the music you love. 

Open App Service 

With Asterll & Kern’s Open App Service, users can install APK music streaming apps such as Tidal, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, Apple Music, SoundCloud, and more to their devices. There’s an ocean of music out there. Open the (streaming) floodgates!
