Astell&Kern A&Ultima SP3000 - Copper Limited Edition

Immerse into Perfect Harmony – SP3000 Copper Limited Edition

A&ultima SP3000 incorporates Astell&Kern's belief in creating the best sound from material to design. The SP3000 Copper is a limited edition model that reaffirms Astell&Kern's philosophy of exceptional sound to the very last detail.

Copper material is regarded as the most musical expression of the original sound of the instrument due to its excellent electrical conductivity and shielding properties. Due to the complicated manufacturing processes required to prevent oxidation and contamination it is a very difficult raw material to work with and use for the production of our players. Astell&Kern uses a stringently selected copper material of 99.98% purity or higher to produce the best SP3000 Copper. A complex Multilayer coating is applied for corrosion resistance and longer term durability. In addition, the product's three-dimensional lines and beautiful watch-style volume crown are further processed using a delicate and very sophisticated hand-crafted metal process, without dulling the copper shine that reflects Astell&Kern’s exquisite attention to detail and manufacturing excellence.

The SP3000 Copper Limited Edition, created by Astell&Kern’s experienced craftsman, as well as having a stunning finish, brings technical benefits including excellent electrical conductivity and shielding, which contributes to outstanding audio performance. The SP3000 Copper has a harmonious and elegant sound that allows you to feel the emotion and rhythm of the audio connecting you deeply to the music you’re listening to.


Experience perfection firsthand with the true next-generation flagship, A&ultima SP3000, the pinnacle of audio players.

- Stunning Audio Performance with Independent Dual Audio Circuitry

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

To achieve the goal of the A&ultima series, which is "to provide the best value that no one can imitate while using the most innovative and uncompromising design and craftsmanship", the SP3000 uses 904L stainless steel material that has never been attempted before in a portable audio player. Using this material has expanded its value from just a digital device to the realm of a luxury good.

904L stainless steel is harder and more difficult to process than general stainless steel requiring significantly more time and effort. However, due to its excellent durability and corrosion resistance, it has a characteristic that does not lose its beauty and this is why it is used in expensive luxury watches where perfection in all materials and parts must be pursued with an irreplaceable and wonderful lustre.

Experience the uncompromising beauty and luxury of the SP3000 produced by Astell&Kern’s experienced craftsmanship.

Supports Native DSD512, 32bit/768kHz

SP3000 supports Native DSD512 and up to 32bit/768kHz with Astell&Kern’s excellent audio technology, allowing you to fully enjoy your favourite music.

Adoption of 5.46 inch Full HD Display

Experience the SP3000 more conveniently and comfortably with a wide 5.46-inch, large-screen Full HD display.

AK File Drop to enjoy wireless transfers

The new AK File Drop function in the SP3000 makes file 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.

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 SP3000. * ReplayGain supports up to 24-bit/192 kHz sound sources.

QC 3.0 Fast Charging Supported

The SP3000 supports Qualcomm QC 3.0 fast charging, so you can charge your DAP faster and more efficiently than previous models, reaching a full charge in about 3.5 hours.

Wireless Hi-Fi Sound Through BT Sink

BT Sink function connects the SP3000 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 SP3000 using the BT Sink function.
