A&ultima SP1000

Astell&Kern has launched the A&ultima SP1000, a new flagship player that changes what is possible from portable audio, in terms of both performance and desirability.

The SP1000 takes the award-winning success of the AK380, launched two years ago, and raises the quality bar for high-resolution sound on the move

Add a larger screen, more powerful, octo-core processing, upgraded dual DACs and a multi-function control wheel – plus watch-grade casing and carbon-fibre back – and the A&ultima SP1000 is simply the best portable player you can buy.

All this excellence comes in a plush wooden presentation box, along with premium accessories including a leather case, cables and handy card-tray tool.

 The ultimate in sound quality, a true high-resolution music player
