ASTELL&KERN A&ULTIMA SP1000M DAP: LIGHTWEIGHT LAPIS DANCER

Astell&Kern introduces their new A&ultima SP1000M music player featuring everything you expect from A&K but in a smaller, lighter package.

Blue is my favourite colour, but it is more than the A&ultima SP1000M' Lapis Blue finish that catches the eye. The player shared its bold industrial design with the company's other players and, no doubt, their magical sound quality.

Both smaller and lighter than its SP1000 sibling due to its aluminium construction and new 4.1-inch touchscreen display, it will offer its owner the very finest in portable audio.

As you would expect from Astell&Kern, class-leading sound quality is a given. Packed with the latest technologies and features, the 200g  A&ultima SP1000M delivers the same masterful sound just like its predecessor. Powered by dual AK4497EQ DAC chips from Asahi Kasei, each dedicated to a single stereo channel, the SP1000M boasts high-resolution and three-dimensional audio. Also under the hood is an octa-core CPU for faster and seamless performance.

The SP1000M supports a max resolution of 32bit/384kHz for PCM files and native playback of DSD256 files. 128GB of onboard memory can be further augmented up to 528GB via microSD card. Completing the package is a USB 3.0 (C type) for fast charging and swift data transfer.

A&ultima SP1000M will be available worldwide in October at an SRP of £1,999.
