Get Both High Output and Vivid Sound

Traditional audio has suffered from noise and distortion as power output is increased. Astell&Kern’s advanced audio design and signal

management technologies used in the A&ultima SP1000 brings more power output with less noise and minimal distortion.

Independent DACs for the left and right audio channels provide a wider soundstage and better stereo separation. Each AK4497EQ DAC

provides rich and vivid audio reproduction, allowing the listener to enjoy the sound as it was meant to be heard.

Great Performance for the Ultimate Experience

The A&ultima SP1000 is equipped with an octa-core CPU which allows the player to produce the exact musical detail present in the

original recording without distortion and provides a quick, lag-free operation.

The A&ultima SP1000 features faster booting times, speedy file transfers, lag-free processing and a new intuitive user interface for the

ultimate player experience.

Ultimate Sound Quality

The latest AK4497EQ dual-DAC design and the upgraded CPU in the A&ultima SP1000 allows for accurate playback of native 32bit/384kHz audio with no compromise on sound quality. The music is played back, bit-for-bit, just as the artist and engineer intended for it to be heard.

The A&ultima SP1000 also supports native bit-to-bit DSD playback up to 11.2MHz for the best sound possible.

New Intuitive User Interface

The A&ultima SP1000 features a revamped interface design which provides music playback from the home screen to give users a more music-centric experience.

By placing the power button on the Multi-function wheel located on the side of the A&ultima SP1000 instead of on the top, users can control the volume and turn the LCD screen ON/OFF, all with one simple control.

The A&ultima SP1000 features a bezel-less design to maximize screen size. The high-definition HD5 grade display delivers a vibrant and engaging viewing experience. Song and player information is sharp, colorful and easily to read on the larger, brighter screen.

• Player is in the main. All functions are centered on 'music replay.'
• Secure access to the music DB and features to manage music files
• Minimum menu depth and simple structure

Faster Charging, Quicker File Transfer

Next generation USB Type-C support allows file transfer speeds up to 10Gbps and supports both data transfer and charging from the same cable.

USB 3.0 protocol transfers data twice as fast when compared to other Astell&Kern players. Charging with a fast charger (at 9V/1.67A) takes only two hours and allows up to 12 hours of continuous playback.
* The maximum 12-hour continuous play is based on 16-bit/44 kHz, FLAC file format, screen off, 75 of volume playback.
* Fast charger (9V/1.67A) and general Charger (5V/2A) are not included in the package.
