I've transferred TONS of music to and from my AK's (120II + 240) without a single hitch on Windows 10. It's MTP, so it's got a one-track mind. You can start copying several folders with several files, but it'll only let you run one transfer job at a time. So while it's copying, you can't start browsing the contents of the AK or start a new transfer. Keep that in mind and there should be zero bugs transferring files from Windows to AK    Cheers from your friendly...
The AK120II and the AK240 sound very similar but the AK240 is ever so slightly warmer sounding, with a little more oomph in the bass when the music calls for it. The 120II is (imho) the better looking of the two, while the 240 is nicer to hold.
The AK240 drives them splendidly without additional amping and I'm sure other DAPs like the DX50/80/90, Fiio X5 etc will as well. 
I visited a friend and fellow Head-Fi'er tonight and we tried this combo with the X2 just for the hell of it... Sounded absolutely spectacular, but luckily the Chord Hugo is priced so far into oblivion that I won't seriously consider getting one. But it was fun to try!
I had the K10 in my ears for 6 months(!) before posting my review. Mine were the first set to make it out of the Noble Skunkworks and I wanted to be sure that I got the review right. Everything I threw at them just sounded amazing and I found myself constantly losing focus, getting lost in the music instead of listening for details and taking notes. At first I thought it was just New Toy Syndrome playing tricks on me, but as I spent more and more time listening to them, I...
On a serious note, if any of you guys are looking for a set of full-size cans to use with your AKs...   My X2's just arrived today and I must say that for $215 (new), I'm downright impressed.
Got my X2 today:   Not bad... not bad at all. Build quality seems very nice and they're pretty comfortable too. Bass goes way beyond what I though was possible with open-backed dynamic cans; It goes very deep, yet remains tight and controlled. Straight out of the box the mids are a little more recessed than I'm used to and I'm not completely blown away by the detail retrieval either. But considering that my daily driver is the $1600+ K10 CIEM, I'm very happy with...
Still rocking my Linum cables, still loving them. Still haven't had any issues with them, so durability sure isn't a concern :)
No need for donor cups, I'd utilize the existing internal wiring from left to right. 😉...if I end up modding them, that is. Kinda leaning towards just keeping them stock. Kinda.
