New Intuitive User Interface

The A&ultima SP1000 features a revamped interface design which provides music playback from the home screen to give users a more music-centric experience. By placing the power button on the Multi-function wheel located on the side of the A&ultima SP1000 instead of on the top, users can control the volume and turn the LCD screen ON/OFF, all with one simple control. The A&ultima SP1000 features a bezel-less design to maximise screen size. The high-definition HD5 grade display delivers a vibrant and engaging viewing experience. Song and player information is sharp, colourful and easily to read

on the larger, brighter screen.

Faster Charging, Quicker File Transfer

Next generation USB Type-C support allows file transfer speeds up to 10Gbps and supports both data transfer and charging from the same cable, the USB 3.0 protocol transfers data twice as fast when compared to other Astell&Kern players. Charging with a fast charger (at 9V/1.67A) takes only two hours and allows up to 12 hours of continuous playback.

Clear Concept

The A&ultima SP1000 is like a natural gemstone carefully refined by professionals. Knowing that sound is reflected from mass, like light is reflected from a surface; Astell And Kern designed the A&ultima SP1000 like a gemstone with reflective features on its surface. The crown-patterned volume wheel on the right corner is similar in appearance to a cut gemstone, which reflects light from various angles. The sophisticated volume wheel on A&ultima SP1000 not only delivers visual and textual details with precision, but allows convenient, one finger ON/OFF control and fine volume control with the addition of both push and turn features.

The external chassis of the A&ultima SP1000 is made of rugged Stainless Steel/Copper that resists ageing and external shock. The A&ultima SP1000 is the ultimate music player, crafted in an artistically designed metallic setting.
