Our Take 
Taking what we firmly believed what was the best digital audio player on the market and making it more portable, while compromising nothing, was a very smart choice by our friends at Astell&Kern. The SP1000M is an endgame DAP that fits in your pocket like a dream – no better ultra-portable on the market.

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

We were not sure whether it was possible to come up with a product that is different from the SP1000 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.

  • Octa-Core CPU for Next-Level Performance
  • AK4497EQ Dual DAC for Highest Sound Quality
  • 4.1 Inch HD Display
  • Highest Quality Audio of SP1000
  • Portable and Durable Aluminum Body
  • DNLA-Based AK Connect App
  • Open APP Service 

The lightweight and portability of the SP1000M enables the user to enjoy original sound playback anytime and anywhere. The A&ultima SP1000M achieves greater portability, without sacrificing the level of performance found in the original SP1000.

The “M” in SP1000M does not stand for one specific word, but rather encompasses many characteristics that the product aims to pursue.

  • MINI: Smaller than the SP1000
  • MOBILITY: More compact design for portability
  • MAXIMUM: Produces the highest-quality audio
  • MANIA: For users who are obsessed with true, original sound
  • MATE: Perfect anytime and anywhere
  • MOMENT: Free of distractions, get lost in the music 

 

Great Performance for the Ultimate Experience

The A&ultima SP1000M is equipped with an octa-core CPU which allows the player to produce the exact musical detail present in the original recording without distortion and provides a quick, lag-free operation.

The A&ultima SP1000M features faster booting times, speedy file transfers, lag-free processing and a new intuitive user interface for the ultimate player experience.

Ultimate Sound Quality

The latest AK4497EQ dual-DAC design and the upgraded CPU in the A&ultima SP1000M allows for accurate playback of native 32bit/384kHz audio with no compromise on sound quality. The music is played back, bit-for-bit, just as the artist and engineer intended for it to be heard.

The A&ultima SP1000M also supports native bit-to-bit DSD playback up to 11.2MHz for the best sound possible.
