Astell&Kern Unleashes the A&ultima SP3000T: The Pinnacle of Personal Audio Experience

In an electrifying revelation at CanJam NYC 2024, Astell&Kern, renowned for its high-fidelity audio products, introduced the world to the A&ultima SP3000T. This flagship digital audio player not only marks an evolution from its forerunner, the SP3000 but also sets a new standard in the realm of personal audio devices.




The A&ultima SP3000T distinguishes itself with a feature that audio purists have long revered but rarely found in portable devices: a vacuum tube amplifier. This innovation brings the lush, warm sound traditionally associated with tube amps to the portable audio space, offering an auditory experience that’s both rich and nuanced.

At the heart of the SP3000T’s allure is Astell&Kern’s groundbreaking Triple Amp System. This versatile setup allows users to tailor their listening experience according to their preferences. Whether it’s the warm, engaging sound of tube amplification, the precise and clear digital op-amp, or a harmonious blend of both through its hybrid option, the SP3000T adapts to the listener’s desires.

Powering this auditory marvel is AKM’s flagship DAC, the AK4499EX. This component is the cornerstone of the SP3000T’s ability to deliver sound quality that’s unparalleled in the digital audio player market. By completely separating digital and analogue signals, the SP3000T ensures that its output is not just high-fidelity but faithfully reproduces the intricacies and nuances of music as intended by the artists.

Priced at USD$2,999, the SP3000T is a testament to Astell&Kern’s unwavering commitment to audio excellence. Find out more here.
