Pros
- Aesthetically beautiful device

Summary

Astell&Kern's A&futura SE100 is an impressive debuting device for the company's premium line, it is truly a breath of fresh air.

Designed around the ES9038Pro, the engineering team has created an offering that is unique to the market, the A&futura SE100 is aesthetically beautiful with all the features that one would need from a DAP and with the recent firmware update added support for real-time wireless audio streaming.

If you are in the market for a DAP, the A&futura is well-worth a listen.
