Pros: Various, please read below

Hi, My name is Dawid and I'm an audio junkie. I'd like to share about Astell&Kern AK120, HiFiMAN HM-901 and Monster Audio MA9.   Just for sake of the facts: I'm a audio journalist by profession, I work for polish press.

This is the best sounding portable DAP I've ever heard, sound better than AK120 which I sold. Very flexible w/ the option of different amp cards.

Would have given it a full 5 stars if not due to its UI.
