Bloom's Take

The time is now. Even after its performance and UI started showing considerable signs of age, we still considered SP2000 to be the best sounding portable DAP in the world, and with the release of SP3000, the crown has finally been passed on to a successor. If you're looking for the best DAP in the world, the SP3000 is the new king.

Material Innovations: World's First Use of Stainless Steel 904L for DAP Body Material

To achieve the goal of 'providing the best, unrivaled value with innovative and uncompromising design and craftsmanship,' the A&ultima SP3000 uses 904L stainless steel material never attempted before in a portable DAP. Due to its extra amounts of chromium, molybdenum, nickel, and copper, 904L steel features superior resistance to corrosion, rust, and acids.

TERATON ALPHA, The Essence of A&K Audio

In order to develop the ultimate audio player, not only do we use the latest DAC and technology available, but we use the innovative audio technology of AK's Ultimate Sound Solution TERATON ALPHA, refined for the SP3000.

First Use of AKM's Latest Flagship DAC

The world's first quad (x4) AK4499EX DAC, AKM's latest flagship, is implemented in the SP3000, and the innovative HEXA-Audio Circuitry structure design in which dual AK4191EQ digital signal processors are applied separately, resulting in the amazing and renowned Astell&Kern sound.

Silver Plated Shield Can

A shield can is applied to prevent various noise and electromagnetic interference from affecting the audio block.

Stunning Audio Performance with Independent Dual Audio Circuit

In order to create a truly innovative DAP, we overcame several sound limitations by implementing never-before-attempted technology: a HEXA-Audio Circuitry structure with unbalanced and balanced outputs.

Snapdragon Octa-Core CPU and New GUI

A&ultima SP3000 is equipped with a Snapdragon 6125 Octa-Core processor and 8GB of DDR4 memory so nothing stands in your way to enjoy overwhelming sound, a fast system response, and a redesigned, next-gen smooth, user interface.

With the newly developed UX/UI, the SP3000 is focused on the process and experience of listening to music, becoming a DAP where you forget the tech and simply enjoy the musical moments.

Sound Design With DAC Filters

With the SP3000, you can have fun creating your own sound style by selecting and combining up to six different DAC filters.

Digital Audio Remaster Technology

The SP3000 is equipped with Digital Audio Remaster (DAR) technology, which was developed to deliver fine, vivid sound at higher sample rates.

Adoption of 5.46" Full HD Display

Experience the SP3000 more conveniently and comfortably with a wide 5.46", large-screen, full HD display.

Wireless Hi-Fi Sound Through BT Sink

Enjoy music playback from an external device such as a smartphone in high-quality on the SP3000 using the BT Sink function.

Automatic 'ReplayGain' and Uniform Volume Adjustment

ReplayGain, which adjusts sound sources with different volumes to identical levels, has been implemented. Now, enjoy your own playlists seamlessly through the ReplayGain feature on the SP3000.

Supports Native DSD512, 32bit/768kHz

The SP3000 supports Native DSD512 and up to 32bit/768kHz allowing you to fully enjoy your favorite music.

Premium Goat Leather Case

The SP3000 comes with a French goatskin leather case to protect and highlight the beauty of the 904L stainless steel body.

It's Fantastic . Full Stop

I had the 2000's, and they were great. The 3000's outshine them in sound and ease of use. I store an enormous amount of downloaded music and once transfered to the new unit, the unit handles the music effortly. And the sound, oh the sound, is absolutely fantastic. It's so good it makes me want to hear my music to hear what it really sounds like.
Two things that our minor only in the sound being so good. 1. The unit has less storage space than the 2000's. The 3000's have a t plus 256 gb. Total available and that is 256 gb less than the 2000's. And be sure you format the micro card to Fat32, even if you think it's already been formatted. If you don't it will heartache like you have never had.
But with the bumps that i had with the t card - the unit is SO FANTASTIC, ....if you want THE BEST DAP -- best sounding to say the least. This is the one for you!

Spectacular

My recent Astell Kern path has taken me from the SE200, to the SP2000T and more recently the SP2000 Copper. The SP3000 exceeds my expectation. I will focus the on the notable differences to the magical SP2000. The biggest difference is the soundstage. It's not just wider, but it is truly holographic, with amazing layering that is deep, high, wide, low. The soundscape surrounds you. The second biggest difference is the texture and separation from the low end. At the lowest frequency response the instrament separation is nothing short of astonishing. Even more impressive is how this interacts with the soundstage. The lower frequency notes just envelope the soundscape, it's not just THERE but you hear and sense how the MOVES through the holographic space, like a wave. Other notable improvements are transparency and more neutral frequency response. Build quality stunning (sculpted art). I'm pairing this with 64 Audio A18s, A12t, and Legend Evo. A18s geting the most listening time.
