I'm seriously thinking to buy an AK 100 or 120, I'm also looking at Cowon P1.
My main use will be reading my Flac library on my Hifi system, as I don't want to build a home network with a Nas or to swith on my tv or to use a tablet to be able to select a track or an album, I think the AK or Cowon high quality sources can be an interesting option.
But to be clear I don't find any shop around me where to try it on a Hi Fi system, can you give me your feedback about sound quality etc with such devices used in "stand alone" mode ?
I mean plugged by RCA on a HiFi amp ?
Is it worth the price ? Or is it better to go on more entry level system and a DAC ?
Let me know.
I don't think the AK100/120 is the best choice for a home hifi system. There are tons of full sized units that you can control with an iPad/iPhone/android that will do the job at least as well.
