The Astell & Kern AK120 - Page 305

post #4561 of 6309

Hmmmm.... FLAC doesn't go as far as 32Bit, just thought of that.... have recorded my vinyl in both 32bit WAV and FLAC anyway but is there a lossless format similar to FLAC that can deal with 32bit 192K, or is there a way FLAC can be engineered to work with higher sample rates?

1.37 is awesome! The improvement is so clear from 1.33 especially on the top end. I notice that the improvement is clearer playing HD files than normal red-book files.

You should try ! On some music , I doubt you can hear difference between mp3 320  and Flac.......

But don't worry, I use 1/3 of space for mp3 and the last with Flac.....

May be iRiver needs to learn from Tera-player which supports only WAV :tongue_smile:

aha, Terra... Terrorist player which supports only Wav, costs bloody and offers blindfold playback, thank you but no thanks.

I got the Astell & Kern AK120.
I've several IEMs, old and new (E3c Shure, Etymotic ER-6i, Ultimate Ears Super.Fi 5 Pro, Philips Fidelio S2) and I also have the Grado SR80 and AKG K701.
But I would like a new IEM that I can do to better appreciate the quality of the player.
I am particularly interested in the definition of the sound and the spatiality of the scene. What do you recommend with a price within $ 500? Westone 4R? Etymotic ER-4PT? Shure SE535? Or the new Sony XBA-H3? Other universal models easily purchased in Europe?
Thank you for your help.


Flat 4 Sui.

So what IEMs are you using now with your toys burt?

post #4574 of 6309
Burtomr, i trust you, can tell you even more, i was considering Terra very seriously before going for Rwak. to each his own... smily_headphones1.gif

The tera is a good player though Gintaras although I don't think I'll buy one. I've had a unit on loan for months now and I can tell you I've only used it for 4 hours or so during that time. I simply like the AK120 that much more. But when using it on the SE5 I can definitely see the appeal. That pairing made me have second thoughts about it. But I figure take it to the next level and get the S mod :).
