question withdrawn, stupid me, i found out AK100 phone out also works as optical output, great.
another question is IF use Ak100 as pure transport into decent amp-dac device like The International or use Ak100 line out to feed a decent (but dac-less) amp?
it's all about sound signature you will get with both solutions. so how good is AK100 onboard DAC?
+1 on this question. AK100 as pure transport with the international or intruder, will it sound better than a DX100 ?
