    Get Both High Output and Vivid Sound

     

    Traditional audio has suffered from noise and
    distortion as power output is increased.
    Astell&Kern’s advanced audio design and signal
    management technologies used in the A&ultima
    SP1000 brings more power output with less noise
    and minimal distortion.

     

    Independent DACs for the left and right audio
    channels provide a wider soundstage and better
    stereo separation.

     

    Each AK4497EQ DAC provides rich and vivid audio
