Even though I'm getting an hm901 as a dap, not an ak120, everytime I see a pic of the 120, I really wish that the 901 looked like that!
The main reason why I stay with AK after selling my AK100
although reviews so far indicate that SQ wise, HM901 and even DX100 are better
Finally decided, you know what, even though the ak120 looks really enticing, I'm just not gonna pay hundreds more for a device with inferior sq
I'd used AK100 and Corda Quickstep.
iDA-1 is very clear sound. and, sound stage is good than AK100.
I can tell you more information, but, my english is not good. sorry.
this amp has some noise when turn on the power. but, after few seconds, disappear.
I think it needs few seconds for warmming up.
anyway, I feel more good sounds than ak100+quickstep amp.

Yup, its the same one but a lot more controlled now after about 700 hrs of burnin with heavy bass but you can still unleash the beast anytime you want
The Fiio tames the bass and the whole package sounds just right except when you start hitting the bass buttons on the Fiio
A combination recommended to anyone for looking for not just punchy head banging bass but overall sound quality too, very clean mids and sparking, non fatiguing/sibilant treble.
