Astell&Kern, founded in October 2013 is a South Korean consumer electronics company and is wholly owned by Dreamus. The company manufactures media players, CD players, headphones and home cinema products.
In 2019 Astell & Kern released the A&Ultima SP2000T. The ‘T’ does not stand for a specific word, but rather encompasses design approaches and directions made during the product development process.
True – The SP2000T inherits the SP2000’s true-sound philosophy
Triple – Triple Amp System
Timeless – Timeless Value
Tube – Vintage Vaccum Tube Amplifier
The triple amp system takes acoustics to a new level! The SP2000T exceeds the standard approach to AMP mode selection, based on the type of music you are listening to. Select TUBE AMP mode, OP AMP mode or the brand new HYBRID AMP mode.
OP AMPE mode puts Astell&Kerns AMP technology expertise to use, delivering extreme clarity and dynamic sound, it provides a uniquely warm and musical sound.
HyBRID AMP mode combines the advantages of retro analog performance and enhances the resolution and clarity of the existing TUBE AMP mode to express more musical detail. HYBRID AMP gives you the pleasure of a brand new characteristic.
The SP2000T is a highly accomplished digital audio player and it will keep you entertained all day long, The battery is a 4,200mAh 3.8V Li-Polymer which will give you about 9 hours non stop battery life.
The SP2000T portable music player has an uninspired name, yes. It costs a lot of money, true. But if you want a premium digital audio experience that delivers truly outstanding results the Astell&Kern Ultima SP2000T is for you.
Again, The SP2000T is expensive so I would recommend adding an extra layer of protection with a Nano Glass screen protector.
