Very nice suits me to the T.

Much larger sounding than the AK100 especially depth perception...so buttery smooth and lush. Much more detail and weight in the highs......

First thoughts listening for 40 mins on the way home.

How does the leather case look?

I still need to have dinner with family but when I get home tonight I will try and post some pictures.

UI is nicer and speedier. Seems to load SDcards faster, but will confirm that when I put in 64 gig card in later.........

BUT

Still no gapless:(

Listening to Unplugged Eric Clapton and the gaps............

Definitely better sounding than the little brother. Hard to quantify at the moment.


Edit:

Leather case is gorgeous!!! Dark Brown......

Over $1000, no gapless.....yet anybody with a Sansa with Rockbox can have gapless, for about $35. Granted, I realize they are not going to sound the same, but still.....

Bass and dynamics are rearing it's head ......after about 1 hours continous play. Bass texture is really something to behold for me at the moment. So rounded and resolving......

Very natural sounding, one can listen all day:)

No gap-less ? A german review of the AK120 on Audio.de states that gap-less works. Hum...

I am listening to Hell Freezes Over and gaps...

Not sure if there is a setting but I had quickly checked..will look again when I get home later...

Wolfson specs clearly state that WM8740 does not support DSD. 8741 and 8742 do:

Why not post in the AK120 thread?

^^^^ and include a pic or 2....

Just posted a camera picture on the AK120 thread...getting a bit late here.

Any more in depth comparison between AK120 and RWAK100? I couldn't care less for stock AK100. There are indeed moments with particular albums when RWAK100 gets a bit 'nasal' with soundstage. If indeed AK120 grants more 'air', then I am interested.

 

Owning both would be nice. I'd secure my bragging rights for being a collector atsmile.gif. 10800 HDK from that Jaben HK shop what is more or less 1070 EUR. At this point I would rather wait and see how the story evolves, e.g. what happens when Vinnie puts his hands on one and so on.

Yes it is correct in stage 4 , AK 100 increase the gain about 5 - 10 %.
If I use my iem sm 64 in my AK 100 stock 60 , in Alex AK 100 stage 4 I must lower down
5 to 10 click .

 

Not yet bro rudi, I would love to hear your ak100 someday when I visit Jakarta if I may
