ASTELL&KERN INTRODUCES A NEW ADDITION TO THE WIDELY POPULAR A&ULTIMA SERIES, THE SP3000 FLAGSHIP DIGITAL AUDIO PLAYER

Astell&Kern is a company based in Gangnam-daero, Seocho-Gu, Seoul, Republic of Korea. Astell&Kern means the centre of music and stands true to its name. Astell&Kern products are the perfect pick for Hi-Fi audio aficionados. Astell&Kern is renowned for offering hugely well-liked DAPs that have revolutionised the audio industry. Astell&Kern has achieved great success with their A&ultima series of DAPs. They have been known for their exceptional build and sound quality. Building on the lineage, Astell&Kern brings the all-new flagship DAP the SP3000, into the A&ultima series. The Astell&Kern A&ultima SP3000 is the newest flagship product that is the essence of everything learned and engineered over the last 10+ years of digital music processing. The SP3000 is the world's first DAP with independent Dual Audio Circuitry and the latest DAC with HEXA structure design. It uses all audio technologies and the best materials that let you feel the overwhelming impact of sound and music. The SP3000 features the latest flagship DAC chips from AKM and has a HEXA DAC structure at its core that deliver pristine digital to analogue conversion without jitter. The A&ultima SP3000 also features TERATON ALPHA which is Astell&Kern's ultimate sound solution to produce audio playback that is close to the original sound through the audio output interface by use of effective power noise removal, efficient power management and amplification with minimal distortion. Experience music at all-new levels that you haven't experienced before with the Astell&Kern A&ultima SP3000. The SP3000 supports PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) 8kHz ~ 768kHz (8/16/24/32 bits per Sample) and DSD (Direct Stream Digital) Native: DSD64(1 bit 2.8MHz), Stereo / DSD128(1 bit 5.6MHz), Stereo DSD256(1 bit 11.2MHz), Stereo / DSD512(1 bit 22.4MHz), Stereo.

UNRIVALLED HEXA DAC STRUCTURE FUSED WITH THE LATEST FLAGSHIP DAC CHIP FROM AKM DELIVERS EXCEPTIONAL SONIC PERFORMANCE

The SP3000 is a flagship product with the latest technology and uncompromising design. Astell&Kern worked with AKM from the initial development stage to develop the DAC and circuit structure. Asahi Kasei Microdevices Corporation (AKM) has developed a new flagship stereo D/A converter (DAC), the VELVET SOUND | VERITATM AK4499EX, which has a complete separation of digital and analogue circuits solution in conjunction with the AK4191. The SP3000 features dual AKM4191EQ (Dual Modulator) + Quad AKM4499EX DAC chips (Dual + Dual DAC). The design uses the latest high-quality sound technology and a separate digital/analogue solution to achieve a sound as if you were their experience. The analogue characteristics also exceed those of the integrated D/A predecessor AK4499, allowing you to experience an unprecedented level of life-like sound. As a result of the partnership, the SP3000 has four AK4499EX DACs. The SP3000 incorporates the novel HEXA structure architecture in which two AK4191EQs analyse digital signals. These independently provide incredible sound. Most digital players process digital and analogue signals together inside the DAC. However, the SP3000’s advanced HEXA structure reduces the noise of the digital signal input through the AK4191EQ, a separate digital delta-sigma modulator, and the AK4499EX DAC processes the analogue signals separately. In a HEXA structure, complete separation of digital and analogue signals is accomplished. It is now possible to experience an astounding degree of sound that has never been experienced before because of the application of this novel design, which enables digital and analogue signal processing to be separate for the first time in a digital audio player.

EXPERIENCE SPECTACULAR AUDIO PERFORMANCE WITH INDEPENDENT DUAL AUDIO CIRCUITS FUSED WITH TERATON ALPHA TECHNOLOGY AND CROSSFEED

Astell&Kern engineers have paid equal importance to the design of the internal components as to the externals. Astell&Kern engineers strived to develop a DAP, never having been engineered or experienced. The engineers at Astell&Kern utilise TERATON ALPHA, AK's Ultimate Sound Solution, which has been enhanced for the SP3000. In addition to most recent DAC and technology available to create the ultimate audio player has been incorporated in SP3000. Through effective power noise elimination, effective power management, unwavering amplification, and a fully converted audio output interface, TERATON ALPHA, Astell&Kern's exclusive technology, has been developed to produce audio playback that is as similar to the original sound as possible. The HEXA DAC structure and independent dual audio circuit, implemented for the first time in the SP3000, are paired with TERATON ALPHA's sound solution to create the purest original sound. To develop an innovative DAP, not just a great DAP, Astell&Kern tried to overcome limitations by envisioning an independent dual audio circuit with a HEXA structure and unbalanced and balanced outputs. Astell&Kern and almost all other DAPs use an inbuilt DAC for balanced and unbalanced outputs. This design prevents the audio performance from being improved. To overcome the limitations, a team of engineers at Astell&Kern designed a HEXA structure using two AKM4191EQs and four AKM4499EXs, creating an innovative unbalanced and balanced, independent dual audio circuit design. The SP3000 achieves an SNR of 130dB, the best of any DAP available. Listening to headphones where the left and right channels are separated may cause increased ear fatigue. The moment you turn on "Crossfeed", the experience of crisp but comfortable sound begins. Crossfeed mixes parts of the original signal from one channel and sends that signal to the opposite channel with a time difference to centre the sound image. With detailed settings such as Shelf Cutoff, Shelf Gain, and Mixer Level, you can set the level of crossfeed according to your listening preferences. You can feel the clean, pure delicacy of sound with the SP3000 that you cannot experience in any other DAP.

DIGITAL AUDIO REMASTER TECHNOLOGY FOR NATURAL, VIVID AND AUTHENTIC SOUND WITH SOUND DESIGN DAC FILTERS AND SHIELD REDUCED DISTORTION

Digital Audio Remaster (DAR) technology, created to offer excellent sound at greater sample rates, is built into the SP3000. DAR technology is developed to up-sample the sample rate of the sound source to go beyond the limits of the source format. The high sample rate allows more refined play offering delicate and analogue-like original sound, helping you to enjoy the richness of the original sound, subtle differences in the nuance of the music and rich sounds at a higher level. With the SP3000, you can have fun creating your sound style by selecting various DAC filters provided by the DAC manufacturer. Design your sound with six different DAC filters: super slow roll-off, short delay slow roll-off, slow roll-off, low dispersion, short delay sharp roll-off, and sharp roll-off. With this customisation at your fingertips, you can customise the sound as per your preferences. A shield prevents various noises and electromagnetic interference from affecting the audio block. The SP3000 takes it a step further to achieve excellent audio performance and perfect shielding by applying highly conductive, high-purity silver on the existing shield can and physically separating digital and analogue signals.

NOTE: The DAR function can be turned on and off and you may select it to suit the source sound and your own preferences.
Max PCM rate 384kHz/DSD256 conversion play is supported, and the files will be converted to and played in the sample rates that fit the source sound.
