Astell & Kern SA 700 DAP
Building on the classic design of the AK120, the SA700 features a volume wheel that allows users to experience the evolution of Astell & Kern’s signature analog design. Inspired by string bridges, the protection ridges and LED lighting around the volume wheel combine to create a classic and lively experience. The LED on the volume wheel goes beyond simple visual effects and serves as an intuitive indicator of information about the song being played and the volume level.
Depending on the bit depth of the song currently being played, the LED will light up in different colors of red, green, blue, and purple, and depending on the volume, the color saturation of the LED changes as you raise or lower the volume with 150 levels of color intensity. The display will feature a GUI that embodies the red and orange colors symbolic of Astell&Kern.
