Porta Pros simply made the biggest difference for me when listening to music as I have switched from some low-end sony in-ear to them and suddenly when playing the same song music became more rich...

If it plays, I wonder if this is due to conversion from DSD to PCM done by software. As many people have already mentioned, by default the Wolfson 8740 does not support DSD..... maybe this is more of a question for JmoonAK/ Iriver ?
Thank you very much...look forward to your reply
I should have an answer for you guys by next week.
By the way, I was aware the DSD format support is being followed up on a future firmware update and not straight out of the box. I'll try to confirm this as well.

Dude, I am sorry but I am jealous as hell. Thinking about how long I have to put money aside and you already have it and try it out with best headphones and iems
Well at least, all these photos and impressions are giving me a boost to hold on more and wait until the correct time comes.
Btw, really out of topic but, is there a way to reach FitEar customs/iems in Europe? By distributors and all I mean.
Who wants to send me one? Whatever I do to it to improve it will be FREE to the person who sends me one. At the very least, I want to lower that
output impedance if possible. But I'm hoping there is room for more good things to come! (and yes I'll pay for the return shipping).
Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) instead of PM.
Can it be confirmed by iRiver that the AK120s will not be released to the USA market until July 2013? And as soon as you
know the MSPR, please pass this information along.
