Headphone-Zone-Astell&Kern announces its new flagship: The A&ultima SP2000 player

Astell&Kern has launched its new flagship, the SP2000 to replace the current SP1000. With this DAP, the brand has gone overboard with the spec sheet yet again. The company also claims to have used the most advanced DAC chip AK4499EQ from Asahi Kasei combined with ‘Current Output Architecture’ technology to provide better sound quality than its predecessor model.

Technically an upgrade from the feature-packed SP1000, there is much talked about improvements in the amplification and a higher SNR ratio. We can happily list it in our “ohh wow’’ category. It also consists of a massive 512GB storage, that you can happily adorn it with all of your favourite albums & still have more space for your purchases. Not to forget, it offers 2-Band WiFi & MQA support for reliable streaming performance. You can stream Tidal or any other android apps using the new firmware update. The A&ultima SP2000 will be available in two finishes: Stainless Steel & Copper.
