No, still have the Tera as well. Not in a hurry to sell. It's kinda a collector's item now. Hehe. Probably will get even more expensive after some times wink.gif.

Did anyone pair/listen T-Peos H200 with AK120 ?

I own 'em and just wonder will it be a good match confused.gif

I do and it matches well.  The H-200 sound as good as it sound on the AK120 as any other DAPs.

??

So you're saying the H-200 sounds just as good with the AK120 as it does with an iPhone?

The AK120 (running software 1.0) is really quite the petite performer. smile.gif

 

Quite literally a different player if compared to the AK100.

The SQ, tonality and presentation are a significant leap over the AK100.

Very natural sounding with airy and spacious presentation.

All the technicalities are there without anything missing.

Even the prat has improved to the point the gap with DX100 is reduced.

And the bass impact is more apparent than the DX100 (firmware 1.4.2).

 

Between the DX100 and AK120, taking just performance alone, they're almost identical.

Everything else considered (except price), the AK120 is the clear option for portable music audiophiles.

 

And the AK120 actually pairs well with the ALO MK3B, everything good about the AK120 is bigger and better.

Nice! I'm on 1.1 + listrid. I like it with Miracle. I'll try 1.21 soon or wait for the newest firmware on Monday.

If they actually do put it out Monday...

The AK120 pairs really well with the JH13 (old), Fitear TG334 and Final Audio Design Heaven VI universal.

 

It's a player that's surprising me every time it gets airplay. o2smile.gif

Afternoon fellas. I'm having a tagging issue with my AK120 that is driving me nuts!

 

I have about 200 albums on my device that show up fine in album view, except for 2 that are constantly labeled as just '1' 

 

I use MP3 tag for all my music and they appear to be tagged ok, as far as I can tell.

 

Does anyone have a clue what might be causing this irritating problem?

post #2441 of 6156

Try just deleting and reapplying the tags - I had a few "unknown" tracks that looked fine in MP3Tag but not on my 120. Reapplying fresh tags sorted it out.

Nope, tried that. these two albums are still listed under '1'

I had a similar issue with "1" album. I managed to fix it with factory resetting the ak120 and scanning again.

Really? So the issue for you was with the device itself and not the tags?

 

Does factory resetting blow away everything on the internal drive?

 

Is it the 'reset all settings' option, under the advanced menu?

Yes and yes ;). Just joking you won't lose your music. It just resets all settings and wipes your playlists.
