I can always count on input (and very good input) mind you out here. I know I'll surely inflame the crowd with this but I'm not liking the 240 aesthetically at all:blink: I realize I'm not listening with my eyes I just think the 100 II/120 are better looking units, heck for that matter I still find the DX50 to be one of the best looking DAP's I've seen of course this is just my PO!
Seriously Sky, you think the DX50/C5 combo with either Roxanne's or Kaiser's would be a better DAP than the AK100II or 120? The one thing I know for sure now is if I want to hypnotize you or TrollD I just need to wave a 240 in front of you:tongue_smile: LOL
If my player is not the same fit as my amp, they do not sound as good as they could be. Appearances DO affect our listening experience! I find the AK240, although pretty sexy with the carbon fibre backing, to be a bit too edgy with the looks of an iPod Nano 7th gen planted in the middle. That aside, it could be way better IMO, but hey...if its the TOTL DAP; hell yeah its hypnotizing! Haha
As of the pairing? I believe the DX50/C5 rig is better thanthe stock AK100. I ddon't actually remember you mentioning an AK120 in there any where tbh..I do remember an "AK100 II", which is the revised AK100, but not an AK120. If the AK120 was an option for you, I would've simply recommended you that over the other mid-fi DAPs any day.
CORRECTION: You did mention AK120, but that was in the post BEFORE I replied to you, so all I saw from there was "AK100/AK100 II".
