Astell&Kern ACRO BE100 is a wired Bluetooth speaker that provides wireless music transmission with Hi-Fi sound quality.
The charismatic light and shadow identity of Astell&Kern, the world's number one portable Hi-Fi brand, is incorporated into the ACRO BE100
The Astell&Kern ACRO BE100 is a Bluetooth speaker that provides Hi-Fi sound quality with wireless freedom.
The light and shadow identity of the world's number one portable Hi-Fi brand Astell&Kern has been incorporated into the ACRO BE100.
Specifically, the speaker is equipped with a 32-bit Hi-Fi digital-to-analog converter (DAC) to satisfy any audiophile and music enthusiast. It has a custom made woofer and tweeter, as well as a compact Class-D AMP that controls each frequency range independently, meaning it provides a superior level of sound quality compared to other common Bluetooth speakers.
Supporting both aptX™-HD and LDAC codecs to transmit high-quality sound wirelessly at 55W output power, filling your room with rich sound has never been easier. .

Equipped with a 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC to provide a superior level of real Hi-Fi sound
Because we can't listen to music as a digital signal, digital music needs to be converted to analog signals before playback can be realized.
To do this, we must use a digital-to-analog converter (DAC).
However, most Bluetooth speakers do not come with a dedicated DAC, and only use the one embedded in the Bluetooth chip. As a result, there is a limit to how good the sound quality can be.
The BE100, on the other hand, uses a 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC, which is the part that converts digital signals to analog signals, along with a separate circuit to provide real high-quality Hi-Fi sound that is incomparable with other common Bluetooth speakers. Based on the technology and expertise we have developed with our portable Hi-Fi products, which are loved by audiophiles around the world, the BE100 provides a different level of real Hi-Fi sound without missing the authentic details of analog sound.
4" woofer with bass
Made with ultra-durable yet lightweight Kevlar fabric to speed up the unit's response and offer more accurate and solid Bass sound.
Two silk dome tweeters
The two silk dome tweeters produce crystal clear Treble.
We've worked tirelessly to find the ideal location for the woofer and tweeters to deliver stereo sound rather than mono sound, meaning the BE100 produces authentic stereo sound.
Astell&Kern’s Unrivalled Hi-Fi Audio Design Technology
If speaker AMPs are not designed properly, they can produce clipping sounds at maximum output. We applied our own AMP design technology to the BE100 to produce a different level of real Hi-Fi sound without distortion while comfortably reaching the maximum output power of the speaker.
It creates a clear sound while preventing the mixing of different frequency ranges by using a Digital Crossover. In addition, dynamic range control (DRC) is used to protect the speaker unit at its maximum output power.
Furthermore, to minimize Jitter—the undesired deviation in time from the transmitted signal—the Bluetooth chipset is equipped with a 50 ps clock and DAC to produce incredibly accurate sound.
High-End Class-D AMP
The BE100 is the result of Astell&Kern's advances in sound technology that have evolved over decades.
The Hi-Fi Class-D AMP guarantees consistent sound quality even at maximum volume and delivers crystal clear sound close to the original sound the artist and producer intended.
Small But Powerful Sound
Experience an amazing 55W of output power from the compact speaker.
Multiple Connectivity Options
Individual sound tuning taking into account the characteristics of three different connectivity modes
The World’s first Bluetooth speaker that supports both aptX™-HD and LDAC codecs
To play music wirelessly, the BE100 is equipped with the technology to receive Bluetooth 5.0 aptX™-HD and LDAC.
With 3.5mm AUX input
The speaker's great compatibility means it can be connected to various external devices such as mobile phones and portable music players.
As each mode uses a different frequency range, we were able to optimize how the sound is tuned using various factors such as echo, internal resonance, and more.
