Given the impressive specification, and Astell&Kern’s track record in producing only the finest media players, KANN is something of a high resolution bargain. Sporting a beautiful sold metal body with a purr inducing volume wheel, the KANN 64GB internal storage that can be boosted to a whopping 576GB via SD and microSD slots, there’s a USB-C connection for faster charging, a powerful built in headphone amplifier. As for compatibility, it plays nice with the highest resolution music files including 32 bit 384kHz high resolution PCM audio and DSD audio, up to Quad rate (DSD256).
