465 posts so far, and how many of you have even been in the same room with an AK100, let alone had time to audition a properly burned-in, warmed up one with your own music, and your own headphones or iems? 2? 3?
i am lucky enough to have a sample that i am listening to as i type this, using sm3 v2s. i will try it with other iems and headphones, and compare it to other DAPs...... i'll tell you right now, though, it shows great promise sonically. Normally i would not post this kind of thing, but i am getting tired of products being "tried (as in trial) in the media" and not given an actual audition.
as to points of fact: it is a rotary encoder, not a pot - not sure whether it controls volume analog or digitally.... and it does get slightly above room temp, driving sm3 v2s (will see with other cans/iems....
as to sonic opinion - I am still listening to it - and i have plenty of other good gear to listen to.... more to follow
