Newly designed audio circuit

The SP2000 is the first Astell&Kern player to use separate, independent audio channels between the Unbalanced and Balanced outputs. This design offers much more power than ever before, with 6 Vrms for Balanced output and 3Vrms for Unbalanced output. With this design, the SP2000 offers the ultimate audio experience as Astell&Kern's newest flagship player.

The Most Advanced Asahi Kasei DAC Chips, Dual AK4499EQ

The AK4499EQ DAC chip uses the most advanced 'Current Output Architecture' technology.  To take full advantage of this new architecture, Astell&Kern redesigned the Op Amp and analog amp block configuration completely.  The new circuit design optimizes the current consumption and brings out the most from these new DAC chips.  The combination of the SP2000 and AK4499EQ chips provide mind-blowing audio quality.

32bit/768kHz, Native DSD22.4MHz Support

SP2000 is the first Astell&Kern model to support 32 bit/768 kHz and DSD512 (22.4MHz) playback natively without compression or loss.

Twice the Internal Storage (512GB)

As CD-ripping and offline storage of streaming content gets more popular, the SP2000 offers twice the amount of internal storage compared to SP1000.

512GB internal storage can hold up to 700+ CDs or 8,000+ tracks of FLAC files (60MB/track).

MQA

MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording.  The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to stream or download. Visit mqa.co.uk for more information.  Astell&Kern SP2000 includes MQA technology, which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams, delivering the sound of the original master recording.
