I'm calling complete and utter BS on that. I can see splitting the digital stream causing several ill effects and very few if any good ones.

GEEZ............

 

I have had flu all week so I have been listening to my HD800 with the uBer cable on it..................The AK120 is the only DAP I have that makes the HD800 singtongue_smile.gif. Volume 65

Thank you...

 

However, still no gapless which is a little disappointing. Any idea when it will arrive?

 

Many thanks!

Just got it today from Jaben Hong Kong, after a quick 10 min test, I can say the sound stage is definitely bigger than stock ak100, I am loving the low and mid. For me the ak100 is flat compared to this. I agree as Gavin said, definitely justified the price biggrin.gif

UI menu is much better..........only criticism at the moment is, STILL NO GAPLESS unless it is user option. Will go through the instruction manual later.

 

So far, for me I feel price is justifiedregular_smile%20.gif but I have only listened with the FitEar MH335DW 

Hmm, to my knowledge, Gapless should have been a standard feature with the AK120. I'll find out for sure from our dev team.
