It seems we're arguing different points. I say the AK Series has been set up as  luxury brand, not thst its owners think they're hot stuff. Its a DAP, not a trophy wife.

I was looking for a good-sounding DAP with high-res support about six months ago.  At the time, I wanted a unit that would easily fit in my pocket.  This automatically rules out a brick of any kind.  So my options at the time were: 

 

  • iBasso DX100
  • iBasso DX50
  • HiFiMAN HM-901
  • Colorfly C4
  • Astell & Kern AK120

 

Once I delved into the DX50's feature set, I pretty much ruled out the DX100.  On top of that, I got into a bit of a row with an idiot rep from Colorfly.  She was spamming a multitude of audio-related Facebook groups, including the Head-Fi group.  And when I complained about that, she accused me of having some kind of bias against Colorfly and asked why I couldn't support them instead.  Crazy wench.  That took the C4 off my list.  So now we have:

 

  • iBasso DX50
  • HiFiMAN HM-901
  • Astell & Kern AK120

 

Then I got a chance to audition the HM-901 and found it not to my liking.  That left me with:

 

  • iBasso DX50
  • Astell & Kern AK120

 

And then, I just got tired of waiting for the DX50.  It was a simple as that.  So...

 

  • Astell & Kern AK120

 

FTW.  I can assure you guys, at no time was prestige (or any of its constituent qualities) even remotely a concern for me.  Nor do I consider it prestigious now.  It works well for me.  It does what I want it to do.  And I like how it sounds.  :smile:

 

Well said. For me it was the all in one factor. Great sound quality, decent battery life and pretty good UI. Plus the build-quality is quite good on these units.  Then factor in the ability to change tracks and even volume without turning on the screen. :)

They will be whispering in your ears and you won't hear them so they will thump you on the head. You won't know what you missed.
