A&ultima SP1000 - A New High-End Portable

Jul 25, 2018

The all-new A&ultima SP1000 from Astell & Kern is a powerful one-of-a-kind flagship high resolution music player.

The SP1000's dual-DAC design and upgraded CPU allow for accurate playback of native 32bit/384kHz audio with no compromise on sound quality.  The SP1000 also supports native DSD playback of up to 11.2MHz. Independent DACs for the left and right audio-channels provide a wider soundstage and better stereo separation.

Traditional audio has often struggled with the noise and distortion caused as power output is increased. The advanced audio design and signal management technologies used in the SP1000 bring more power output with less noise and minimal distortion. The SP1000 is also equipped with an octa-core CPU that provides a quick, lag-free operation and allows the player to produce exacting musical detail without distortion.

A revamped, more intuitive interface further enhances the user experience. A simple, minimalist menu allows access to features and functions quickly and easily. By placing the power button on the volume wheel (located on the side of the SP1000 instead of on the top), users can control volume and turn the LCD screen ON/OFF, all with one simple control.

The SP1000 doesn't just sound great, it also boasts an elegant aesthetic. The external chassis is made of rugged stainless steel that resists aging and external shock. Available finishes include Onyx Black, Stainless Steel, and Copper.
