Astell&Kern is proud to introduce the A&ultima SP1000. It's a one-of-a-kind, high-end, powerful music player equipped with the latest advanced features, like an octa-core CPU for outstanding response and performance, and a High Definition HD5 display to create the best viewing experience. Traditional audio has suffered from noise and distortion as power output is increased. Astell&Kern’s advanced audio design and signal management technologies used in the A&ultima SP1000 brings more power output with less noise, and minimal distortion.
The A&ultima SP1000 features faster booting times, speedy file transfers, lag-free processing and a new intuitive user interface for the ultimate player experience. The latest AK4497EQ dual-DAC design and the upgraded CPU in the A&ultima SP1000 allows for accurate playback of native 32bit/384kHz audio with no compromise on sound quality. The music is played back, bit-for-bit, just as the artist and engineer intended for it to be heard. The A&ultima SP1000 also supports native bit-to-bit DSD playback up to 11.2MHz for the best sound possible.
The A&ultima SP1000 also features a revamped interface design which provides music playback from the home screen to give users a more music-centric experience. By placing the power button on the Multi-function wheel located on the side of the A&ultima SP1000 instead of on the top, users can control the volume and turn the LCD screen ON/OFF, all with one simple control. Song and player information is sharp, colorful and easily to read
on the larger, brighter screen.
Next generation USB Type-C support allows file transfer speeds up to 10Gbps and supports both data transfer and charging from the same cable.
USB 3.0 protocol transfers data twice as fast when compared to other Astell&Kern players. Charging with a fast charger (at 9V/1.67A) takes only two hours and allows up to 12 hours of continuous playback.
