The Astell&Kern SP3000 is a standout in the A&ultima line, representing the pinnacle of portable music players. With a stunning 904L sculpted chassis, available in both silver and black, the SP3000 exudes prestige and flagship quality.

**Luxury Meets Innovation: Astell&Kern SP3000**

Astell&Kern continues to set the standard for perfect sound with the A&ultima series, and the SP3000 embodies the essence of over 10 years of digital music processing innovation. As the world’s first Digital Audio Player (DAP) with independent Dual Audio Circuitry and the latest DAC featuring HEXA-Audio Circuitry structure, the SP3000 employs cutting-edge audio technologies and premium materials, delivering an overwhelming impact of sound and music.

**Material Innovations: World’s First Use of Stainless Steel 904L for DAP Body Material**

In pursuit of providing unparalleled value through innovative design and craftsmanship, the SP3000 breaks new ground by utilizing 904L stainless steel—a material never before attempted in a portable audio player. Known for its exceptional durability and corrosion resistance, 904L stainless steel is harder to process, requiring meticulous effort and time. This material elevates the SP3000 from a digital device to a luxury good, showcasing uncompromising beauty and luxury.

**TERATON ALPHA: The Essence of A&K Audio Technologies Merged Into the SP3000**

To achieve an unparalleled audio experience, the SP3000 incorporates the TERATON ALPHA, Astell&Kern’s unique audio technology refined for this flagship model. TERATON ALPHA ensures effective power noise removal, efficient power management, unwavering amplification, and a fully converted audio output interface. Paired with the HEXA-Audio Circuitry structure and independent dual audio circuit, the SP3000 delivers the purest original sound.

**Collaborative Innovation with AKM: World’s First Four AK4499EX DACs**

Astell&Kern collaborated with AKM from the initial development stage to create the world’s first four AK4499EX DACs for the SP3000. The innovative HEXA-Audio Circuitry structure, featuring separate processing of digital signals through AK4191EQ, minimizes noise and maximizes Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR). This unique design achieves physical separation of digital and analog signal processing in a digital audio player, offering an unparalleled level of sound.

**Silver Plated Shield Can for Enhanced Audio Performance**

The SP3000 features a shield can to prevent noise and electromagnetic interference. Going a step further, it applies highly conductive, high-purity silver to the existing shield can, physically separating digital and analog signals for excellent audio performance and perfect shielding.

Elevate your audio experience with the Astell&Kern SP3000, where luxury meets innovation in the world of flagship music players.
