[DEMO SET] Astell&Kern A&ultima SP1000M Ultra Portable & Ultra Performance (Lapis Blue)




Ultra Portable & Ultra Performance, A&ultima SP1000M


Astell&Kern constantly strives to master the philosophy of delivering original sound. So far, we believe thatåÊtheåÊA&ultima SP1000 is the optimal product that produces the highest-quality audio.

åÊWe were not sure whether it was possible to come up with a product that is different fromåÊtheåÊSP1000 while delivering the same sound quality, but we decided to take up the challenge so that more people could experience our products‰۪ fidelity.

There were many trials and tribulations in making the SP1000, our best product, smaller. We were determined to not compromise sound quality in the process, and we ultimately developed the second A&ultima product, the SP1000M.åÊOcta-Core CPU for Next-Level PerformanceAK4497EQ Dual DAC for Highest Sound Quality4.1 Inch HD DisplayHighest Quality Audio of SP1000Portable and Durable Aluminum BodyDNLA-Based AK Connect AppOpen APP ServiceåÊThe lightweightåÊand portability ofåÊtheåÊSP1000M enables the user to enjoy original soundåÊplaybackåÊanytime and anywhere.
