With the ACRO CA1000T, you can enjoy optimal device performance and pure sound that touches your heart.

 

Upgraded Sound

The world's first Use of the Newest ESS Flagship DAC

The ACRO CA1000T is designed with dual ES9039MPRO, using the newest flagship DAC from ESS for the first time ever to offer more vivid and voluminous sounds that surpass your imagination.
