SE200 features one path with higher power output and shorter battery life - using a top of the line AK4499 dac, it provides up to 10 hours of playtime and up to 3v output via 3.5mm, 6v output via 2.5mm.
The second path has less output and longer battery life of up to 14 hours, via new dual ESS 9068 dacs, with 2v output w/ 3.5mm & 4v output w/ 2.5mm out.
Both dac/amps sections are tuned differently giving you more flexibility with music playback. Aluminum housing with glass back, big bright 5" screen and 256 gb of built in storage. SE200 uses an octa-core processor, for faster, more fluid use than the quad core processor in other A&K players. The build quality is impeccable and the SE200 is gorgeous, especially the curved right side around the dial.
