What Hi-Fi?, 5 Stars
Dual AK4499EQ DACs
Experience the highest of high-resolution audio thanks to a pair of AKM AK4499EQ DAC chips. By completely rethinking the circuit design to optimise current consumption and extract every shred of performance from these class-leading DACs, we can support 32-bit/768kHz and DSD512 audio files natively, without loss or compression.
Huge internal storage
The SP2000 has a massive 512GB of internal memory, enough to hold well over 1000 albums at CD quality. Add a microSD memory card to expand up to a huge 1.5TB - it’s enough storage to take week’s-worth of high-resolution music with you, wherever you go.
Power and independence
For the first time, we’ve specified separate, independent audio channels between the balanced and unbalanced outputs. The result is abundant power: 6Vrms for the balanced output and 3Vrms for the unbalanced output. Which means the SP2000 will comfortably drive any headphones you choose, at any volume level you desire.
Ultimate streaming stability
With dual-band wi-fi (2.4/5GHz) facilitated by an all-new three-dimensional antenna design, the SP2000 preserves the signal strength and speed your favourite streaming service demands to function at its best.
Form complementing function
The elegant, sophisticated design of the SP2000 features sandblasted aluminium, machined from a single, solid block and finished in either copper or stainless steel. Along with the edge-to-edge high-definition touchscreen, it defines the SP2000 as a beautiful object as well as an extraordinary music player.
