Acoustic Research Mysterious New Audiophile DAP - Page 15

post #211 of 213

However, as the greedy Koreans launch their AK380 @ $3500 I'd say I'm just going to stick with my desktop combination of Weiss DAC2 @ $1200, SPL Phonitor2 @ $1400 and HD800 @ $900

AK company is just insane... 

 

Audiophile is a truly strange market sector which allows monopoly. 

Music instrument market is similar. Some good Gibson guitars cost 3k easily. 

But, this DAP market should bring to question since what they're using for making DAPs are worse component and firmware than that of usual android smartphones which are priced at $120. 

 

In terms of hardware design and firmware, LG's $120 android smartphone is much better than the whole AK series.

You are right! It is just rip off. Even the desktop gears are also rip off.
