Boasting a stainless steel body, quad-core CPU, and 32bit/384kHz playback, the SA700 should be a serious contender for any would-be digital audio player (DAP) owner. 

The One-Hander

The SA700 was designed with navigability in mind. With a 4.1” touch display and easy-to-reach side buttons, this DAP allows you to off-hand a drink with ease. 

DAP of Steel 

Stainless steel is known for its corrosion-resistance, durability, and stunning good looks. It’s also known among the audio community for reproducing top-notch sound. Featuring a simplified stainless steel body, the SA700 looks as good as it sounds. 

Intuitive LED Indicator

The SA700 features a handsome volume wheel with a neat trick up its sleeve. It indicates the bit-rate of the current track with a splash of LED color: red for 16bit, green for 24bit, blue for 32bit, and purple for DSD. Or you can just turn it off in the menu if monochrome is your thing. 

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 SA700 supports this technology, allowing you to listen to the best version of the tracks you love. 

Open App Service 

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