Oh, I wish it's mine.  My friend Ajay loaned it to me for a week.  I am enjoying it with my modded 1350.  It sounded a tad too thin and dry with the K3003.

If you get a chance, try the in-built USB dac too. It may not be able to match with the AK one but it has a special synergy that I rather like.

I have tried My AK 240 pair With LCD XC

Source : AK 240
Music file : WAV 16 bit / 44,4 KHz
Headphone : LCD XC
Cable : SAA Endorphin balance 4 Pin > use 4 Pin adapter to mini plug > AK 240
Equaleiser : Off
Power / volume control : 65 - 70

My impression :

Like what i Said in my previous impression in another AK 240 thread , that AK 240 sound quality is Only Good to very Good to drive Low Impedance headphone like LCD 3

My analogy
The amp on AK 240 is like 1500 cc motor Engine , i can drive My 1500 cc motor Engine to Speed until 120 km / h.
But The Power is just enough .no reserse Power to drive more Speed .
If i have more Power / bigger Power like in My car 2400 cc , For sure i can drive to The Speed 120 km/H , the result is different , more stabil , has more Power reserse
Compare to 1500 cc motor Engine .

I heard The sound quality from LCD XC is not so optimal like i drive use external amp

IMO

It's a USB DAC. Just use a micro USB cable.

Yup, or if you have an android device you can output an USB digital audio signal too.

Ah, no thanks.  I've got a good desktop DAC and I just made the switch to Windows Phone.  :o

As far as I know Westone UM3Xs don't use 3D printing method unless you customize it (reshell) with custom 3D printed

i'm talking about the UM 3x and not the UM3x. Unique Melody's hybrid and not Westone's triple BA.
