Astell&Kern Can (unpacking device)
One player to rule them all
KANN from Astell&Kern offers a new performance standard for mobile music presentation. By combining a high-quality audio player and a high-performance amplifier, KANN draws on the technological expertise of Astell&Kern, the leading manufacturer of Portable Hi-Fi Audio.
With a focus on strong performance and crystal clear sound, the all-in-one KANN offers the following features.
high quality output
Astell&Kern has introduced a new product design that cleverly integrates a high-performance amplifier into a player to perfectly merge two independent devices. The KANN supports the output of 7 Vrms when connected via a balanced high-gain output and not only drives high-impedance headphones without an additional amplifier, but also reliably reproduces high-quality sound with low-impedance speakers.
Output optimized to
Listening environment of the user
KANN, the first product from Astell&Kern, is equipped with a line-out circuit to adjust the output values in 4 steps,
depending on the user’s listening preferences, a significant improvement over previous products that did not offer output/volume control.
With the selectable output function, you can match your sound to a home system, car radio, or any other listening environment.
KANN also supports Astell&Kern’s balanced 2.5mm 4-pin outputs (2 Vrms).
Unlike the unbalanced type, the balanced output removes noise rustling (common mode noise) from “signal + inverting amplifier signal”.
and has the strength to increase power with its dual transmit signals.
