Astell&Kern KANN Cube high-res digital audio player review: Astonishing performance, with a price tag to match

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.
