Newly Designed Audio Circuit

Dual AKM AK4499EQ DACs are employed to allow the SP2000 to use separate, independent audio channels for the unbalanced and balanced outputs. Astell&Kern redesigned the op-amp and analog amp block configuration to take advantage of the architecture of the AK4499EQ. The new audio circuit optimizes the current consumption and helps the DAC chips achieve peak performance, yielding a flatter frequency response, a higher signal-to-noise ratio, and lower distortion than previous flagship models.

Supports High-Resolution Uncompressed PCM and DSD

The SP2000 is the first Astell&Kern model to support 32-bit / 768 kHz and DSD512 (22.4 MHz) native playback without compression or loss. The 32-bit DACs ensure bit-to-bit playback with no reduction in bit depth or sample rate.

Dual-Band Wi-Fi

With streaming music services becoming more popular, stronger and more reliable network reception becomes even more important for your audio experience. The SP2000 supports dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4 and 5 GHz) with an improved three-dimensional antenna design.

Plentiful Internal and External Storage

Equipped with 512GB of internal memory, the SP2000 offers twice the amount of internal storage compared to the previous flagship model. 512GB is enough to hold the data from over 700 ripped CDs or 8000 tracks of FLAC files (60MB per track). Insert a microSD card (up to 512GB) for even more storage space.

Increased Audio Output Power

With more power than any previous Astell&Kern players—6Vrms for the balanced output and 3Vrms for the unbalanced output, the SP2000 is ready to drive your favorite headphones to their full potential.
