[Astell&Kern] SEM4 - Module for SE180 (AK4493SEQx2)
SEM4 is an interchangeable all-in-one module for the SE180.
With its release, Astell&Kern has expanded the potential of the SE180 once again.
SEM4, born from the key concept of ‘Shape Your Sound’ is equipped with the AK4493SEQ dual DAC, the latest DAC from Asahi Kasei, which minimizes loss and noise interference from the original sound while offering 14 hours of playback performance — the longest among SEM modules.
SEM4 supports up to 32bit/768kHz, Native DSD512 and you will be able to enjoy even more vivid, original sound with the introduction of digital audio remaster (DAR) technology.
