"A credit to Astell & Kern’s consistency, the SP2000 is familiar for all the right reasons – big, transparent and refined. But there’s a new level to each that makes this unmistakably the best Astell & Kern player we’ve heard. Actually, it could be the best portable music player we’ve heard full stop."
A&ultima SP2000 is the third player released in the A&ultima lineup. A&ultima SP2000 features newly developed audio circuitry and amplifier design.
The Most Advanced Asahi Kasei DAC Chips, Dual AK4499EQ
The AK4499EQ DAC chip uses the most advanced ‘Current Output Architecture’ technology. To take full advantage of this new architecture, Astell&Kern redesigned the Op Amp and analog amp block configuration completely. The new circuit design optimises the current consumption and brings out the most from these new DAC chips. The combination of the SP2000 and AK4499EQ chips provide mind-blowing audio quality.
32bit/768kHz, Native DSD22.4MHz Support
SP2000 is the first Astell&Kern model to support 32bit/768kHz and DSD512 (22.4MHz) playback natively without compression or loss.
