thanks viceriouszero for the reply,

 

hm 901 comes with balanced card and a card for iem , which do u think i should buy ? 

also u suggest hm 901 over the ak120 , is it ? 

 

and with these players i won't be needing a separate dac and amplifier as these are good enough for the roxannes ???

 

thanks

I like the sound of the 901 and it doesnt need a seperate DAC or amp. the AK120 also sounds good and is nice and portable but the interface is a little clunky especially when you have more music.

i simply want the best sounding portable rig , money is not a concern 

 

i bought the shure se 535 in 2011 and recently bought the e17 fiio after two years cause i didn't know how important and amplifier would be, so u can imagine how low my knowledge is. 

 

i was thinking of the ak240 but maybe the hm 901 or x5 or zx1, i have no idea

 

please ur suggestions are most welcome. 

 

thank u !

 

Like VisceriousZERO mentioned, the AK240 is not out yet.  If you need something NOW, the AK120 is one of the best options (Want to buy mine?  :ksc75smile:). If you can wait, the AK240 should be available pretty soon.  This is all you would need for a Mobile rig. The AK120 has more than enough power to drive the Roxanne.  The AK120 sounds amazing with the Roxanne and the AK240 should bring some upgrades like more space, more processing power, balanced options, etc ....  The other options you listed has their pros and cons, FOR ME, overall the AK120 is what makes sense because of capacity, DSD, DSF, battery life, sound quality, etc ...

thanks perdigao for your suggestion.

 

even i was considering the ak120, but i read it has a lot of issues with it and people have been selling theirs. that is why am a bit concerned regarding astell n kern. even you are offering to sell yours. 

lol 

 

also I've read that the sq in hm901 is a lot better than ak120 . 

but i have to agree that the ak120 is alot more portable than 901

Almost everyone (including myself) are selling theirs because the AK240 is just around the corner.  The Roxanne and the AK240 will be a perfect couple once the balanced cable becomes available (see a couple posts back).

The main issue with the AK120 is lack of processing power.  If you use DSD/DSF files, it takes so much to play them that the interface becomes really slow.  The AK240 should not have that issue!  It is an issue, but most of the other players don't even play DSD/DSF files ...

SQ wise, it lose out to HM901 but for me the main reason I sold the AK120 is the UI. Having live in Apple eco-system, I do feel that their UI is a bit primitive, especially if all the 192Gb memory is fully used.
Once I received the Roxanne (dunno when), I will start exploring for new DAP. Currently Sony ZX1 is in my radar, and hopefully once Calyx M is launched, I'll be looking into it as well

no, in new delhi, no one even sells high end audiophile products

i have to order everything online, I've just been reading here n there,

 

i guess ill just wait till ak240 is released and see what people have to say about it with the roxannes including you. 

 

any idea on the release date n price ?
