Owned both DX100 and AK100 at same time for a while.
Technically, the AK100 is close to DX100, however, much lacking in terms of musicality, dynamics and that special euphoric atmosphere in the sound.
Granted the AK100 has better blacks in it.
DX100 is kinda like hearing Adele singing Rolling in the Deep, you feel the artist, that toe tapping "i wanna rock with this" feeling.
AK100 is like hearing some unknown singing the same song, vocally great, hits all the right notes, but nothing jumps out, nothing musical or toe-tapping. It just sound technically good.
Have since sold off the AK100.
