Our Take

The KANN integrates a powerful amplifier with Astell&Kern’s class-leading software interface to provide a smooth and balanced listening experience with even some fairly power-hungry headphones.  Capable of taking 768GB in memory cards, the KANN can store an amazingly large music library, making it a great device to have with you everywhere you listen.
