Introducing the A&ultima SP2000T. The Ingenious New Solution.
The "T" in SP2000T does not stand for a specific word, but rather encompasses design approaches and directions made during the product development process.
The SP2000T inherits the SP2000's true-sound philosophy
Triple AMP System
Vintage Vacuum Tube Amplifier
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 analog 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 sound
TUBE AMP Mode : Uniquely warm and musical sound
HYBRID AMP Mode : A fresh combination of retro vibes and high-resolution output.
Vacuum Tube Amplifier Compatible with 2.5 mm, 3.5 mm and 4.4 mm Output Jacks
The SP2000T supports all output types, with no restriction on the type of receiver used, so you can enjoy the unique characteristics of the vacuum tube.
Real Vacuum Tube
Equipped with the portable-friendly dual-triode KORG Nutube, for a unique TUBE AMP sound.
Nutube offers a reliable continuous playback time of approximately 30,000 hours.It features an anode grid filament structure which operates the same as a triode vacuum tube.It's much smaller, consumes far less power and yet delivers the same audio with rich overtones.
The SP2000T supports all output types, with no restriction on the type of receiver used, so listeners can enjoy the unique characteristics of the vacuum tube.
HYBRID AMP MODE
HYBRID AMP mode supported for the first time by DAP is the essence of Astell&Kern's advanced AMP design technology.
New combinations of sounds can be enjoyed in HYBRID AMP mode,
which is based on the OP AMP sound and addition of tasteful warm tones unique to TUBE AMP technology.
Internal Mechanical Design to Minimize Noise
Special Design to Minimize Microphonics Noise
SP200T features a special design tailored to minimize 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.
Separation Using Magnetic Polarity
A structure that uses magnetic forces to float the amp in the air, thus minimizing noise from the vacuum tube itself, which is generated when it is exposed to mechanical impact or vibration
Flexible Silicone Covers
Silver Plating Shield Can
Astell&Kern products apply shield cans so that noise and elec-tromagnetic interference, which occur when the countless parts are in operation, do not affect the audio block.
The SP2000T has taken it a step further by applying highly con-ductive, hyper-pure silver plating on the existing shield cans for perfect shielding that provides excellent audio performance.

The SP2000T achieves a more detailed and balanced sound with great depth and spatial realism.
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.
Dual-Band Wi-Fi (2.4/5 GHz)
Dual-Band Wi-Fi is supported for users who enjoy streaming services, providing enhanced network performance.
With streaming music services becoming more popular, stronger and more reliable network reception becomes even more important for your audio experience.
The SP2000T supports Dual Band Wi-Fi (2.4/5GHz, a/b/g/n/ac).
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.
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.

When Taron and Andrew Lissimore started headphones.com, they wanted to create the headphone store they wished existed. As headphone enthusiasts, they wanted a store with 365-day returns.
So they decided they were going to try to make 365-day returns work - no matter how ridiculous it sounded to their wives.
Years later, they're still doing it, and their wives still think they're crazy.
So take some time to get to know your new gear. We want you to enjoy your purchase for years, not just a few weeks. If you're not satisfied, you can return items in like-new condition for up to 365-days.

Return Policy Abuse
In order to provide a 365-day return policy, we need to take abuse seriously.
We monitor a buyers ratio of purchased to returned products. If it exceeds an internal threshold they will no longer be allowed to place orders with Headphones.com. This includes customers who spread returns across multiple accounts.
We made our return policy to help you find gear you feel great about for a long time. Most people use it exactly as intended. We don't want the handful of people who attempt to abuse our policy to ruin it for everyone else.
If you paid with a cryptocurrency, the returned amount will be equal to the USD equivalent of your payment on CoinGecko.com at the time the refund is processed. The return will be made in the currency of your original order.
After You've Made a Return
Each return is inspected at our warehouse. During busy times these inspections may take a few extra days.
Refund or Credit
We will notify you by email when your refund or credit has been processed. It may take a few business days for a refund to appear in your account. This is determined by your financial institution.

To that end, all of our packages are shipped signature required with FedEX to make sure your package arrives in your hands safe and sound and if there are any issues, your time isn't wasted.
However, if you are looking to ship to PO Box or APO address, we can definitely accommodate your shipping needs!
