This free SW is the best way to test any memory card before you use to be sure it's good:

Very nice, makes me want mine even more, love the case. Looking at the name it is quite a high end Italian leather goods maker, nice touch!

I had no idea it was hand made Italian leather until now. Sexy stuff for sure!

I tried pairing the T5p with AK120, I find myself wishing to go over 75 for certain classical musics. To this day I still could not find a better pairing than CK100PRO.

Remember to treat it with some leather protector before you got any scratches on it.  I came from the AK100 Dignis case that didn't scratch at all and got careless and my AK120 case is so far from it's original sexy self...... frown.gif


Well maybe a good excuse for me to get an even sexier replacement:

Really good advice! Some nice shoe cream will be perfect or actually the natural stuff that came with my old LCD's is perfect as well.
Here is a link to their website..
http://www.buttero.it/company.php

Their shoes go for anywhere between $350 for sneakers to $500 + for shoes.

The leather is vegetable tanned which is always a sign of quality and also has the advantage of being hypo-allergenic so you won't get any rashes.

I really like this little detail, it shows how the company really wants a quality end product I feel.

Yup. You definitely don't want yours to end up like mine:

Mine is worse. The first time I got a scratch on it I was so angry.... It really can't be helped. The case is so fragile it needs a case itself lol ;).

Ahh, but remember, leather has great rejuvinating properties. Looking at KC's case some shoe cream (not polish, it dries leather out!) of the same colour will take those scuffs out lickety split! ( and if you wonder why I have a bit of knowledge on the subject I put myself through college working at a high end shoe store in England many many many years ago biggrin.gif)

That sounds interesting. I'm still skeptical though because the scuffs you mention are more like gouges lol. Just running my nail across the case will put gashes into the case.

Lol I gave up on caring for mine already.  Been waiting for the Dignis ones for what felt like an eternity.  Given how much more I'm listening to the 901 these days hope they get it out before I decided to sell the AK120 to fund some desktop rigs.

Shoe polish didn't work.  I even used these conditioner (http://www.amazon.com/Howard-LC0008-Leather-Conditioner-8-Ounce/dp/B006MZHLZ4) that I used for leather ear pads for cans but to no avail :(

 

It actually improved a bit of the less marks but nothing short of fairy dust or magical elixir can restore its beauty :(

So does the 901 play DSD files now? I remember hearing that mentioned on the thread. It's funny how much preference can play a roll in it all. :)
