The Gold AK SP1000M

High Res player-maker Astell and Kern has dabbled with all sorts of materials in the making of their DAPs over the years. While the frame for their flagships has usually been stainless steel with an outer casing of varying materials (including copper) the newest “M” version of the SP1000 line proves that the bling bling isn’t just for the pinky ring.

The SP1000M that goes on pre order today comes fully equipped for playback duties with a brass frame and 99.7% purity gold plating.… Read the full article
