Description

Highlights

  • 4-step gain level with maximum 15Vrms output
  • Perfect circuit design with ultra-high output and low noise in an even smaller sized player
  • Equipped with ESS ES9038Q2M Quad-DAC that reproduces clear, exceptional output
  • TERATON ALPHA, the epitome of Astell&Kern audio technology
  • 32-bit/768kHz, Native DSD512 support
  • Bluetooth 5.0 and 24-bit codec (Qualcomm® aptX™ HD , LDAC) support
  • ReplayGain that automatically adjusts volume to be consistent across tracks




Quad-DAC Sound That Reproduces Clear and Overwhelming Sound Output

KANN MAX is the first player in the KANN series to be equipped with four ES9038Q2M DACs for high-output performance. By applying Quad DACs, one DAC can be fully allocated to one channel, so the depth and realism of the sound source can be expressed to the fullest. Combined with Astell&Kern's amplifier circuit technology that naturally and delicately raises the strengths of the DAC, and the perfect decoding ability of the DAC to deliver the original sound as it is, music output is expressed as the original sound without distortion. Four DACs applied to KANN MAX, a power supply IC configured for each audio block, and a perfect circuit design produce ultra-high output and low noise, providing you with the best performance and sound that the KANN series is known for.



Ultra-High Output in a Smaller Size Device

KANN MAX takes the identity of the series to the next level to provide a perfect experience with high power and clear sound. It provides 4 stages of gain level and ultra-high output of up to 15Vrms, which was previously only possible with a stationary headphone amplifier. KANN MAX can perfectly drive even the most sophisticated headphones with high impedance. KANN MAX offers a smaller size and weight than the KANN APLHA player, which boasted the best portability in the existing KANN series. Although smaller in size, all power-related components have been analyzed and the power circuit has been redesigned several times to achieve 13 hours of continuous playback.




Perfect Circuit Design That Achieves Both Ultra-High Output and Low Noise

As the output increases, so does the noise level. KANN MAX is equipped with ultra-high output, does not allow any noise and conveys Astell&Kern's philosophy of delivering the original sound as it should be, without compromise. Together, we have completed the perfect circuit design to achieve this. KANN MAX applies an analog volume controller to deliver a rich dynamic range without loss. By separately configuring the power supply IC for each Audio Block divided into DAC, Volume, and AMP, KANN MAX is designed to stably supply the power required for each Audio IC. Through this design, the interference ripple noise of the DC-DC power supply (the shaking noise phenomenon that occurs when power is supplied) is removed. Audio noise that can be heard amplified like audio sound in OP AMP is minimized. Ultra-high output and low noise in the KANN MAX was achieved through different circuit design, including creating and dividing a limited PCB that is the same size as KANN ALPHA into 12 layers and reviewing the physical size of the device applied to the AMP circuit.



Gold PVD Output Coating

In order to minimize contact noise from the output jacks, a gold PVD coating method is applied to the headphone connector instead of the typical rings used by other products. This improves both design and function.

Equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 and Support for Wireless 24-bit aptX™-HD, LDAC Codecs

Bluetooth 5.0 features faster transmission speed and greater range compared to Bluetooth 4.2, therefore providing a more stable wireless connection. Both LDAC and aptX™ HD is supported to provide audiophiles with high-quality sound even when listening wirelessly.
