Audiophiles searching for a high-end portable audio player may be interested in the MISTRAL created by Sevenstep Audio. The MISTRAL audio player has this week launched via Kickstarter and is now available to back with early bird pledges available from €696 or £620. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about its construction and features.
“The Mistral player is still based on the amazing AK4497EQ DAC and uses the same luxury finish and most of the high-end components as ‘the Sirocco’. Targeted towards a more pop/trendy audience, it supports Bluetooth connectivity and a larger display. By developing ‘the Mistral’ alongside ‘the Sirocco’ and making smart choices for the components, we can price it aggressively while keeping the Sevenstep luxury look and feel. The suggested retail price of the Mistral player will be €995,- plus VAT. Backers of this Kickstarter campaign even get up to 30% off that price. ”

– 200K – Leather protective sleeve
