Product Description

The A&ultima SP1000 is Astell&Kern’s powerful flagship high resolution music player, equipped with the latest advanced features.

Whilst increasing power output in traditional audio means noise and distortion, Astell&Kern’s advanced audio design and signal management technologies used in the SP1000 allows for increased power output with minimal noise and distortion.

The Astell&Kern A&ultima SP1000 allows for native 32bit/384kHZ audio played back accurately, without any compromise on sound quality. For the best possible sound, the SP1000 also supports native bit-to-bit DSD up to 11.2MHz.

With independent DACs for the left and right audio channels, the SP1000 offers a wider soundstage and better stereo separation. The AK4497EQ DACs provide rich and vivid audio reproduction, meaning the music is just how the artist and engineer intended it to be heard.

Equipped with an octa-core CPU, the A&ultima SP1000 produces the exact musical detail that is presence in the original recording. Providing a quick and lag-free operation, the SP1000 plays audio without distortion.

With a new and improved intuitive user interface, the A&ultima SP1000 provides music playback from the home screen to provide a music-centric experience. With the multi-function wheel located on the side, one simple control allows users to change the volume or turn the LCD to on or off.

Supporting new generation USB Type-C, the SP1000 allows for charging and data transfer (at speeds of up to 10Gbps) from the same cable. The USB 3.0 protocol of the SP1000 transfers data twice as fast as other Astell&Kern players. With a fast charger (9V/1.67A), charging takes just 2 hours and offers 12 hours of continuous playback.

MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) delivers the sound of the original master recording. Master MQA files are fully authenticated, whilst still small enough to stream or download. Equipped with MQA technology, the Astell&Kern SP1000 plays back MQA audio files and delivers the sound of the original master recording.

Set Contains:

1 x SP1000 Player, 1 x Leather Case, 1 x Screen Protector, 1 x USB C Cable, 1 x SD Card Tray Tool, 1 x Warranty Card
