Astell&Kern launched its newest digital audio player today, the KANN Cube, at the Fujiya Avic Spring Headphone Festival in Tokyo, Japan. The KANN Cube is the second model released in Astell&Kern’s acclaimed line of KANN music players. About this time last year, I reviewed the original KANN, which Astell&Kern will continue to sell.
After spending a few weeks with the KANN Cube, I can say with confidence to anyone with an unquenchable yearning for a high-performance, feature-rich, high-res digital audio player that’s capable of driving just about any headphone, regardless of impedance level: The KANN Cube is what you’re looking for. But you’ll need deep pockets to indulge your passion: This device will cost $1,499 when it arrives at A&K dealers in June.
Astell&Kern offers some of the most eye-catching high-res music players on the market, and the KANN Cube follows that tradition with a bold, hard, and unapologetic design. As with all Astell&Kern players, deliberate use of angles, shapes, and negative space abound. Look at the photos in detail to see what I mean.
The player is an amalgamation of seemingly infinite shapes. Add a light source, and you can spend hours admiring the interplay of lights and shadows against its varied surfaces.
