A&ultima SP2000T // Portable High-Resolution Audio Player
Introducing the A&ultima SP2000T, the ingenious new solution that takes acoustics to new levels. The SP2000T combines the OP AMP configuration of the SP2000—the culmination of Astell&Kern's finest audio technology—with a nostalgic vacuum TUBE AMP, adding a vintage feel to the portable player.
The SP2000T exceeds the standard approach to AMP Mode selection based on the type of music you are listening to. OP AMP mode puts Astell&Kern's AMP technology expertise to use, delivering extreme clarity and dynamic sound, while TUBE AMP mode provides a uniquely warm and musical sound. HYBRID AMP mode combines the advantages of retro analog performance and high-resolution output, giving you the pleasure of a brand new tonal characteristic.
The SP2000T supports all output types, with no restriction on the type of receiver used, so you can enjoy the unique characteristics of the vacuum tube.
Equipped with the portable-friendly dual-triode KORG Nutube, for a unique TUBE AMP sound. Nutube offers a reliable continuous playback time of approximately 30,000 hours. It features an anode grid filament structure which operates the same as a triode vacuum tube. It's much smaller, consumes far less power and yet delivers the same audio with rich overtones.
SP2000T features a special design tailored to minimize microphonics. Both sides of the vacuum tube are fixed with flexible silicone covers, and the vacuum tube has been modularized so it is physically separate from the PCB. Astell&Kern goes to great lengths to innovate and design these small components that make a big difference in the quality and sound of their products.
TERATON ALPHA is AK's ultimate Sound Solution to produce audio playback that is close to the original sound through the audio output interface by use of effective power noise removal, efficient power management, and amplification with minimal distortion. TERATON ALPHA features Astell&Kern's patented technologies, which are the result of tens of thousands of hours of continuous research and development to produce sound close to the original sound the artist and producer intended.
The SP2000T features a full HD screen to provide a higher quality display. It's also equipped with four ES9068AS DACs, which allows two DACs per channel for more detailed and balanced sound with great depth and spatial realism.
Dual-Band Wi-Fi is supported for users who enjoy streaming services, providing enhanced network performance. The new AK File Drop function makes file transfers easier and more convenient. Using AK File Drop, you can freely transfer files wireless through a PC, smartphone, or FTP program located on the same network. Music file management is now possible with a cableless, wireless solution.
The newly introduced BT Sync function connects the SP2000T to an external device via Bluetooth, similar to connecting a smartphone with a BT speaker.
