Meet Astell&Kern's Shiny New Flagship DAP

Astell&Kern is known for crafting the world's greatest high resolution music players. The A&ultima SP1000 is a powerful addition to their range with the latest advanced features. Astell&Kern is proud to announce that the A&ultima SP1000 is the first player to have an octa-core CPU. This system allows for outstanding response and performance. With a great High-Definition HD5 Display, the A&ultima SP1000 guarantees the best viewing experience. Their new multi-function wheel and rigid stainless steel/copper housing a nice beast.


Ultimate Output & Larger-than-Life Sound

The Astell&Kern  A&ultima SP1000 is a powerful audio player. Its advanced audio design and signal management technologies contribute to creating massive power with a lot less noise and distortion. Back in the day, traditional audio used to suffer from a lot of distortion when the power output would be turned up. But with the  A&ultima SP1000, Astell&Kern has employed the AK4497EQ DAC that gives you vivid audio in order for you to enjoy your favourite music the way it was meant to be heard. This is a one-of-a-kind DAC as it comes with two independent functions - one for the right and left channel. What this amazing DAC does is, it provides good stereo separation and a larger-than-life soundstage.

Octa-Core CPU for Incredible Speed & Lag-Free Player Control

A&ultima SP1000 by Astell&Kern is a marvel of a product. With an octa-core CPU, the player's performance exceeds expectations. Thanks to such a high-performance processor, the sound reproduction is near perfect to the exact details present in the music. This super fast CPU also allows the player to transfer files fast without any unnecessary lags. Additionally, the  A&ultima SP1000's new interface is extremely intuitive.

Bit-for-Bit Sonic Perfection at Native 32bit/38kHZ

The  A&ultima SP1000 has managed to set a record high in producing high-fidelity audio. There is no compromise on sound quality with its native 32bit/384kHz playback. The Dual-DAC system for right & left channel creates an accurate sound that will satiate the appetite of the most discerning purists out there. The  A&ultima SP1000 DAP also supports DSD formats up to 11.2Mhz. Music can now finally be experienced exactly the way that the artist and engineer intended for it to be heard.

Stunning Attention to Every Detail in the Design

Digital Audio Players are known to have functional and basic displays. Astell&Kern is the first DAP company to break the mould and create player that looks as good as it sounds. With an HD5 grade display and a completely revamped interface design, the  A&ultima SP1000 has a lot going for it. Instead of placing the power button on the top of the player, Astell&Kern has positioned the button and the Multi-functional wheel on the side of the player. With a bezel-less design, screen size is nice and big. The brand has also made song and player info a lot sharper, colourful and vibrant. All in all, the  A&ultima SP1000 is designed to give you wholly music-centric enjoyment.

Quick Charge with an Amazing 12 Hours of Battery Life

Two hours of quick charge will give you 12 hours of music indulgence. The  A&ultima SP1000 is truly future-proof: with a USB Type-C cable, file transfer is blazing fast at 10 GBs per second. The same cable can also be used for charging. Unlike the other AK players, the USB Type-C cable comes with a 3.0 protocol that allows you to transfer data at double the speed. 

Twice as Appealing with 2 Colour Options

For better durability and protection, Astell&Kern has released the  A&ultima SP1000 in two solid variants with colours that won't fade. Rigid stainless steel and copper housing makes the  A&ultima SP1000 feel like luxury.
