TRIPLE AMP SYSTEM is the Next Generation of AMP Technology

The SP2000T exceeds the standard approach to AMP Mode selection, based on the type of music you are listening to.
Select between TUBE AMP mode, OP AMP mode, or the brand-new HYBRID AMP mode.
OP AMP mode puts Astell&Kern's AMP technology expertise to use, delivering extreme clarity and dynamic sound,
while TUBE AMP mode provides a uniquely warm and musical sound.
HYBRID AMP mode - a first for digital audio players - enhances the resolution and clarity of the existing TUBE AMP mode to express more musical detail.
HYBRID AMP mode, combines the advantages of retro analogue performance and high-resolution output, giving you the pleasure of a brand new tonal characteristic.
Experience the unique sound enhancements that AMP technology has to offer.

OP AMP Mode:
Extreme clarity and dynamic
TUBE AMP Mode:
Uniquely warm and musical
HYBRID AMP Mode:
A fresh combination of retro vibes and high-resolution output.

Internal Mechanical Design to Minimise Noise

Special Design to Minimise Microphonics Noise
SP200T features a special design tailored to minimise microphonics (the phenomenon wherein the vacuum tubes generate noise even from a small external impact). Multiple design iterations and verifications have been performed over a long period of time to fix the structural issues of vacuum tubes that generate microphonics noise even from a small impact or vibration. For minimization of mechanical impact and vibration, both sides of the vacuum tube are fixed with flexible silicone covers, and the vacuum tube has been modularized so it is physically separate from the PCB. Astell&Kern goes to great lengths to innovate and design these small components that make a big difference in the quality and sound of our products that no other manufacturer can match. A structure that uses magnetic forces to float the amp in the air, thus minimising noise from the vacuum tube itself, which is generated when it is exposed to mechanical impact or vibration.

AK ULTIMATE SOUND SOLUTION, TERATON ALPHA

TERATON ALPHA is Astell&Kern's ultimate Sound Solution to produce audio playback that is close to the original sound through the audio output interface by use of effective power noise removal, efficient power management and amplification with minimal distortion. TERATON ALPHA features Astell&Kern's patented technologies, which are the result of tens of thousands of hours of continuous research and development to produce sound close to the original sound the artist and producer intended.

ReplayGain Automatically and Uniformly Adjusts Playback Volume

ReplayGain, which adjusts sound sources with different volumes to an identical level, has been applied. Now, enjoy your own playlists seamlessly through the ReplayGain feature on SP2000T.

* ReplayGain supports up to 24-bit/192 kHz sound sources.

AK File Drop to enjoy wireless transfers

The new AK File Drop function in the SP2000T makes files transfers easier and more convenient. Using AK File Drop, you can freely transfer files wirelessly through a PC, smartphone, or FTP program located on the same network. Music file management is now possible with a cableless, wireless solution.

Navigation bar for easier navigation

Wireless Hi-Fi Sound Through BT Sink
The newly introduced BT Sink function connects the SP2000T to an external device via Bluetooth, similar to connecting a smartphone with a BT speaker. Music from an external device, such as a smartphone can now be played back in high-quality on the SP2000T using the BT Sink function.
