Astell&Kern Expands Support For MQA

Astell&Kern continues to extend its range of MQA supported devices, with three new portable music players due for a firmware upgrade which will enable MQA playback. 

The digital players include the SP1000M, SE100 and SR15 models. The A&ultima SP1000M, unveiled at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, is a smaller version of Astell&Kern’s SP1000 flagship high-resolution music player, achieving greater portability, without sacrificing performance levels found in the original SP1000.

The SE100 is the first model from the A&future range, while the A&norma SR15 is Astell&Kern’s mid-range portable music player.

The award-winning SP1000 was the first Astell&Kern player to support MQA playback earlier this year.  All models also feature the integrated TIDAL app, so HiFi subscribers can stream master quality music wherever they choose to listen.

The firmware update will be available from 12 December 2018.
