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 are 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.
The Astell&Kern SP2000 is expected to be one of the best Hi-Res digital audio players for the foreseeable future in the audiophile world. It is currently available on Pre-Order
at Headphone Zone at ₹ 2,69,990
