Astell & Kern – the Best Portable Players in the world
Yes, you can play music through your phone, laptop, tablet … so why do you need a dedicated, expensive portable player? The same reason why you own a high end audio system. Because it SOUNDS BETTER. Astell & Kern is credited for creating the dedicated portable music player market. While there are other options, none is as well built, or as good as A&K.
We just received the new SP2000. This player is a thing of beauty. Seemingly carved from a block of aluminum, it is finished in a stunning copper/stainless steel. It feels so solid and luxurious. Inside contains state of the art AKM DACs capable of resolving up to 32bit/768kHz and DSD512 without compression. It has enough power output to drive virtually any headphones, with balanced or single ended outputs. With dual band Wi-Fi built-in, you can stream Tidal easily. Internal storage is 512 GB, which is 700+ CDs or 8000+ tracks, easily expandable with an additional 1TB microSD card.
It also supports MQA.
If you want the best sound through your headphones, there is no better choice. Come and listen to the Astell & Kern SP2000. $4,699
