The Astell&Kern A&ultima SP1000M has been styled to look as well as sound great. The 4.1-inch touchscreen showcases all your music artworks in HD resolution. An aluminium body offers durability while staying extremely light. It features a 10-hour battery life. When the battery goes down, simply plug-in your DAP for a mere three hours and you soon get a fully charged audio experience.
For an enhanced user interface and lag-free experience, the A&ultima SP1000M features an octa-core CPU. This processor powers the AKM AK4497EQ Dual DAC. It supports Native DSD playback and MQA for a sound that's almost like the original master recording. You get a sample rate of PCM : 8kHz ~ 384kHz (8/16/24/32bits per Sample) / DSD Native: DSD64 (1bit 2.8MHz), Stereo / DSD128 (1bit 5.6MHz), Stereo / DSD256 (1bit 11.2MHz) and Stereo.
The Astell&Kern A&ultima SP1000M is compatible with Windows 7 & above as well as MAC OS X 10.7 & up. You can transfer data to your DAP via a USB Type-C input (supports file transfer speeds up to 10Gbps) or MTP (Media Device) input. Headphones can be connected with a 3.5mm connector or 2.5mm balanced output. This audio player also supports Bluetooth v4.1 and Wi-Fi. Use the DNLA-Based AK Connect App for speedier wireless transfers.
Stream music from your favourite services thanks to the Open APP Service. You can install a variety of .apk apps like Tidal, Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music and more. It has an internal storage capacity of 128GB and if that isn’t enough, a 400GB microSD card slot should store all your music.
To create a player that was even better than the A&ultima SP1000, Astell&Kern decided to create a DAP that was smaller and more portable but still retained the same high-quality sound performance as its predecessor. The result? The A&ultima SP1000M. It has been inspired by irregularly patterned natural stones as well as Lapis Lazuli, one of the oldest gems whose history stretches back to 5,000 BC. The user interference has also been improved with the optional Virtual Back Key.

This product is fantastic. Great sound, fairly good UI. Bulky but not too bulky that I can't walk around with it in my pocket.Paired with an equally good pair of headphones, the AK SP1000M becomes nothing short of a highly efficient musical powerhouse. Clarity is superb and sounds so smooth that I can enjoy music for hours without fatiguing my ears. The level of detail, soundstage and musicality is top notch. It takes the experience of listening to music while on the go to a much higher level.
