Ok, I can hear the fade in. I would assume they can somehow fix this.
I have read that some feel the AK240 has a larger soundstage. I have not heard the 240, little chance out here in the bush of Alaska where ear buds costing 10 dollars predominate.
Now, to my ear, the soundstage projected by the balanced card with balanced phones, is pretty large, and not narrow, so how is it that it could be larger? If it stretches out before you and goes ear to ear and then angle out R and L from there, where are these larger soundstages going? I have read of one having a more hollow sound, from another DAP and while large, not realistic while the AK240 is large and realistic but I have been listening to some live music and it seems pretty darn large and full.
Just curious about other findings.
Sorry about that. Never quite noticed where you were...
I'll pay particular attention to the soundstage of the AK240 when I next hear it. & I'll come back with brief impressions versus the HM901.
