  So, what you want is a compact size, fast and gorgeous UI, lost of storage and jaw-dropping sound? Such devices exist: AK120 II and AK240. The only slight downside is the price tag that comes with having all those things in one device 
1) Volume: With my CIEMs, volume usually hovers around 40. Sometimes less, sometimes more. With a good classical recording (like this one) I can dial it up around 50 and get all the tiny details, like someone shifting in their seat, turning a page etc. Then suddenly my ear drums are shattered as the LSO kindly reminds me that A) kettle drums exists and B) good recordings have a lot of dynamic range. So, usually around 40. (Balanced output to the Noble K10). The good thing...
  Hah, the case ended up costing me $50 with shipping, so I'm gonna keep it for my CIEMs. It's just too damn nice! Only downside is that now I'm eyeing those Japanese Vannuys cases again... 
Zero EQ on mine - I didn't notice a drop in bass with the Linum, is your polarity right?Edit: What's the impedance of your JH's? My K10 are around the 40ohm mark, so that might be why the 1,5ohm shift doesn't impact the bass that much for me.
So, that very nice ACS leather case arrived today...   Anyone out there looking for a perfect case for the AK100II, the AK240 or any of the first-gen AK players? Literally any AK player except the AK120 II? #¤#"#¤!!#@ GAWDFSCKINGDAMNlT!!    Well, at least it's a very nice case. Super soft leather, feels like proper craftsmanship too. ...and at 101 grams it's very light.   A lot lighter than the Peli 1020, which is 240g plus 3g of Noble stickers.   There's...
Congrats on your first final rig! ...I'm currently on my 4th final rig  Head-fi: You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.
Has anyone tried running the HD650 from the balanced output of the AK players?
Bonus controls: Tap the cover art on the "now playing" screen to show the song lyrics (if available) as an overlay instead of the track number. Tap once more for no overlay at all. When adjusting the volume, swiping up or down on the volume adjustment overlay will turn the sound up or down VERY fast. Useful when using the line out, sorta dangerous with headphones. Trust me.
Never underestimate the power of curious geeks! 😀Then they should swap the side buttons as well, having the screen swipe respond opposite of the physical buttons seems rather counter-intuitive.
Just in case others had missed these controls:     It kinda bugs me that the swipe controls are the opposite of the buttons on the side of the player...
