Astell & Kern SP1000 AMP Amplifier Module






AMP = Amplifier Module For SP1000

Another of the great new products released by Astell&Kern at the 2019 Munich High-End Show, the SP1000 AMP is an amplifier module designed specifically for the SP1000 portable music player only, and is intended to drive full-sized, high-impedance headphones.

The SP1000 player (not included) locks to the AMP, providing a simple and secure connection, giving you the feel of a single, united device.

Please note AMP does not fit the SP1000M or SP2000 units.

More Power & Performance For Your SP1000

The SP1000 AMP offers a high gain output of 10Vrms for balanced output, and 6.2Vrms for unbalanced output. The modular design fits perfectly with your SP1000, and is available in three matching finishes - stainless steel, copper, and onyx black.

AMP has been designed to protect your hearing. It adjusts the output every time AMP is turned on, and/or your headphones are disconnected. The AMP can be turned on and off easily from the quick settings menu. Gain can be adjusted in the full settings menu.

Please note that when AMP is connected to your SP1000, the Optical Out, USB-DAC, USB-Audio, Line-Out and CD-Ripping functions will not be available.

Improved Output Performance

SP1000 AMP offers higher power output and better efficiency (compared to the older AK380 AMP module), via use of updated circuitry and audio volume control.

3,700 mAh Large-Capacity Battery

SP1000 AMP is equipped with a 3700mAh rechargeable battery, providing up to nine (9) hours of uninterrupted music playback, when using unbalanced-output mode.

Perfect Unity

Astell&Kern wax lyrical about the AMP's design, stating that the black backing of AMP represents shadows of the SP1000's natural materials. As the wavelengths of the sound splash in every direction, so the reflected shadows express a divided silhouette. Soft blue light surrounds the SP1000 volume wheel and accentuates the beautifully crafted crown pattern, as the light shines upon it.

The precise angle of the wheel and the AMP surface, when combined together, has a functional space that does not interfere with the operation of the wheel and conveys the AMP status through the white, blue and red colors.
