Astell&Kern’s expertise in audio circuit design has allowed us to create a complex and highly integrated circuit chip on a small, six-layer PCB the size of 14 x 41 mm. In order to create a small device, micro resistors and tantalum capacitors, exclusively created for Astell&Kern were used. The dual CS43198 DACs, featuring two Cirrus Logic CS43198 MasterHIFI™ DACs which supports native DSD256 and 32bit/384kHz playback, are paired with an independent analog amplifier, designed to provide true audio playback so you can feel the live, warm and clear sound as intended, without distortion. This is possible based on years of Astell&Kern’s expertise in AMP design. Although it is a small and simple cable type external DAC, it is able to sufficiently drive high impedance headphones with a 2Vrms (Condition No Load) output level.
