How is it that you upgrade the software for tomorrow when it comes......maybe a link earlier, anyone have it to 1.21?  I assume vendor doesn't open it to do the upgrade, and it is fairly recent......Either use the thread to post or pm it to me please...with instructions....redface.gif

Congrats on your purchase. I've posted the download link and installation method in my thread, Here is the link. http://www.head-fi.org/t/665329/astell-kern-ak120-impression-thread#post_9468858

 

I am certainly interested to see how AK120+V200 is like. I love to hear you view on this. I love to eventually purchase the V200 as I find it an exceptional performer.

Just download the firmware from the support page, connect AK120 as USB Drive and copy the .hex file you downloaded to the internal memory. Disconnect USB and it will start the upgrade. Strongly suggest you listen to the 1.00 for sometime first and while for the 1.00 firmware became available before upgrading in case you like the 1.00 sound better. I know I do.

Thanks for the link.  Wasn't even thinking of hooking it to the v200 but maybe i will to let you know on how the respond with each other after i get some initial impression of the sound from the HP out and feeding the Pico Power.  Give me a couple of days with it and i will give that combo a listen.

this feature in AK100/AK120 prevents such scenarios!

Thanks for this.  I tried and it does work and is effective, except I find that after each call, the bluetooth connection with my iPhone5 drops and I need to reconnect again.  Do you have the same experience?

I haven't had that happening to me thought I'm using a Samsung Note 2 (n7100) at the moment. Would be interesting to see if others Iphone5 users have this issue

has anyone done any experimenting with best lossless fomat (If it makes a diffrence)??   I am going to re-burn all my CDs for my AK120 and not sure if to stick with ALAC so can use with Ipod.   Go to FLAC or even try WMA lossless.  Thanks.

The AK120 with V200 is actually very good..........and has the best sound of all the DAPs that I have plugged into the Violectric.

 

And on Mega Home Systems as source, it is not too shabby either wink_face.gif

That is very promising to hear, thank you. I once had my carat topaz dac connected to a V200 and when I heard V200 I wanted to get it. It is an incredibly capable amp with nice footprint and excellent objective performance. 

 

Thanks for your input.
