Astell&Kern ACRO CA1000T
The Astell&Kern ACRO CA1000T is a high-performance headphone amplifier with a beautiful digital audio player built-in that pushes the boundaries of sound quality.
The latest addition of the ACRO series sees the inclusion of the world’s first device to feature a dual-tube triple amp system and the latest ESS flagship DAC. Designed for audio connoisseurs, the ACRO CA1000T pushes the sonic limitations beyond that of a standalone headphone amplifier with additional terminals for multiple connections.
The versatile ACRO CA1000T provides compatible I/O terminals that can satisfy the diverse needs of audio enthusiasts who want to build a complete head-Fi system. By providing XLR and RCA output, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth to connect external audio devices and speakers, the ACRO CA1000T consolidates all your premium audio connections into one device.
The aluminium body and wheels produced with CNC precision represent Astell&Kern’s cohesive technology, it is robust yet delicately finished.
ACRO CA1000T has a tilting display that can be adjusted to an optimal position depending on where it is placed on a desk or table. The display can be freely adjusted up to 60 degrees to suit your environment.
The digital music player, which cannot be detached from the unit, has a 4.1-inch touchscreen that can tilt upwards (up to 60-degrees), allowing users to easily control playback and settings through its Android OS, or alternatively lie flat within the aluminium chassis.
Building on the success of the ACRO CA1000, the CA1000T features the company’s own unrivalled TERATON ALPHA technology which provides distortion-free sound even at the highest output. The device also supports a four-stage Gain Level setting of up to 15Vrms for the most sophisticated IEM and headphones.
The compact audio system is a stellar design piece with the brand’s signature sharp edges and parallel lines on each side coupled with a stunning gold coloured dial. This, combined with the brushed grey aluminium body, reflects the power and detail of the CA1000T’s sonic output.
The player can also receive music over Bluetooth from a connected phone (via the BT Sink function) and send playback wirelessly to a pair of wireless headphones thanks to Bluetooth 5.0, aptX HD and LDAC support. Wi-fi is on the menu too. Want to connect an external source? Inputs spanning optical, coaxial, USB-C and RCA are all at your service.
The system is portable, too, with an 8400mAh battery offering up to 10.5 hours playback for use away from a plug socket.
