As for a "ak100  with real line out", well... this is exactly what the " -S " version of RWA mod is:  the RWAK100-S:.

 

Line out

The RWAK100-S modification also hardwires the analog line-output stage following the WM8741 directly to the headphone output jack. Therefore, the headphone output stage is completely bypassed and the headphone output jack is converted to a true, 2Vrms line-output.

Hardware volume control removal

Since the digital volume control functionality is completely disabled, we also remove the volume wheel that exits from the left side of the AK100, and we plug the hole so the RWAK100-S is slimmer by 5 mm – and simply looks cleaner.


i listened to the ak100 (modified for low impedance) some time ago and loved the sound and also from time to time thought of buying one to combine it with my vorzüge amp duo, but the volume wheel ....... with the new for me information you have posted you have redirected my thinking about my september fun budget investment planning to a nice 'i want to have' direction.

 

could you please post a link to where to buy this ak100 version?

I use this interconnect (0.5 metre) - http://epiphany-acoustics.co.uk/products-page/cables/solaris-ii-mj2-mini-jack-to-mini-jack-interconnect/ - and can honestly say that it's the best 20 quid that I've ever spent on a cable. It's silver plated and ultra pure oxygen free copper wire. `Sounds' very transparent without any brittle/bright artifacts typically found with pure silver cables. 

 

Cheers,

Andy.

 

 

YEP, thanks Andy for this helpfull link.

Hahaha! As tubes get more and more rare, it's a secret ;-). Just kidding. There are a few places in Akihabara but I have to go to the shop to hunt around through their shelves. Most are in a small building opposite Oyaide's shop.

My BTG 12" 8 strand Oyaide finally came in. Wonderful little wire. My TP->BTG->TU-05->Kaede might just be some of the most natural, liquid, enjoyable sound these ears have heard. (Still using the Sylvania & Siemens combo).

Go look in 東京都千代田区外神田1-10-11 on 2nd and 3rd floors. That's where I picked up my NECs but I don't know if they have anymore. I also picked up their last Fujitsu Ten 1T4SF and I need to search for another to make a pair. They do have other 1T4s and 1U4's though.

It's beautiful too. I'm still looking for the IC cable for TUR-06. I might pull the trigger on this one.
