There's just enough of a difference between the AK120II and the AK240 to nudge me over to the AK240, most noticeably the bass. Dunno if I'll be keeping it as long as I did the AK120II, but the time has come for me to move on, I'm afraid.

Any of you guys driving open-backed full sized cans straight from the AK240? Been thinking of getting a set to compliment my (C)IEMs, but I don't want to fall back down into the rabbit hole of amping and stacking - not to mention building a desktop rig that'll never see any use. I'm looking at the Philips Fidelio X2 as a cheap way to get my open-backed fix and they should be very easy to drive. But then there's the HD700... I could probably stretch my budget to a used set...

Oh I'm sure that the AK120 II is not, strightly speaking, ruler flat. It does however go for a slightly more neutral-ish sound than its bigger brother.I haven't heard the Fiio X7 or the AK320/380, but if anyone from A&K or Fiio are reading this, feel free to send me loaners for review! 😀

I've been really busy at work today - but not with actually working, mind you. As you switch between the two, there is absolutely no doubt that they come from the same line of DAPs. I actually find detail retrieval to be the same between the two, as you'd expect with the identical dual dacs. But there is a sonic difference between them. It's not a huge, night-and-day difference, but it's there alright. The AK120II is clearly tuned to for a "reference" sound where...

Why don't you tell us how you really feel? Meanwhile, I'm sitting here with a PC, moving and renaming files on the AK120II and AK240 without a single issue. Works perfectly fine in Windows... You know what? The more I think about it, the more it seems like the issue is with OSX's lack of support for the MTP standard. Whoa, I just noticed that this fact has been discussed a zillion times on the AK240 and AK120II threads and in just about every review of the players. But...

Comparison is ongoing. More pictures here: https://goo.gl/photos/5TgBhSRaugkSEt629 PS: Those of you who think the AK120 II leather case is ugly clearly hasn't seen the one that comes with the AK240.
