Expert Verdict "The Astell&Kern SP2000 is very precise and detailed, it also delivers music with a fast pace. The Bass is tight, fast and detailed with good layering."
Heafonia
"Tube output has always been a dream of mine in a DAP and for some time I thought this might happen in the amp cards from FiiO or iBasso but it never materialized."
Headfonics
"The Astell & Kern A&ultima SP1000M is pretty much faultless when it comes to sound quality. When it comes to the business of playing music, it’s impossible to find holes in the performance."
What Hi-Fi
"The A01 motherboard taps into Cayin’s house sound or preference for something slightly richer, sweeter and an all-round performance that will appeal to a very wide audience indeed."
