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 ?

sadly, I won't be getting the AK240 heh, the shape for me isn't pocketable, just imo.

For me I go for no compromise....and i still feel all those portable dap cant come close to the sq of a imod/noisepod-amp combo...though its definitely not pocketable...ive tried ak100/120/901 and hated all of them

Did you order CF:)?

oh man back on the roxannes...ordered mine during BF....CF....hopefully to get before CNY

nice to hear shipping starts to trickle again.

I ordered on BF, non-CF, impressions received on 4th Dec.

I'm hoping I get shipping notice this week or next.

Yep, so might be even longer...do not know if she took it into account.

Honestly I thought you would like to see that dirty dozen in the shells.

CF was too tempting.

Forever Source Digital (aka LEAR) posted impedance measurements of the Roxanne:

Those of you using AK120s are only getting about 2x damping factor from 20-500 Hz.

And still, some people say Roxanne is fine with AK120.

Well it sounded fine for the 5 mins i tried it with the 120... xD

 

I used the Meridian Prime mostly with it.

The interesting is that Jerry Harvey says it's fine with the AK120; that's what he uses for people to audition the Roxanne with...

 

BAs are less susceptible to damping factor loss of bass control than dynamic drivers, but are susceptible to changes in frequency response, so I dunno... perhaps the low >9 kHz impedance, assuming positive electrical polarity, will cause the treble to lift with low damping factor... I dunno.

The OI on AK120 would only matter if Roxanne is plugged in directly. The Meridian Prime has OI of 2-Ohms that must be why you don't hear much difference. I actually demoed AK120 in Singapore Mook using JH16 and it defintely sounded thin on bass heavy songs. I was switching back and forth between the HO on AK120 and through C5D amp. The difference became more pronounced when I switch the bass boost on C5D to high. 

 

As far as the highs go, I must have settled to the DX50's sound that the same song had a somewhat colored (different) rendition on AK120 even behind the C5D amp.  I spent at least 30 minutes on the AK booth that day trying out different songs as I can but I really can't convince myself to get the AK120 that day despite the good deal/discount. It's nice in the hands though and I could really use the dual micro SD slot.

 

It's limitation really is a shame coz it suppose to be a good on the go pair with Roxanne. But it turns out, the only way I can use it is as a very expensive transport which negates all of it's advantages over other DAPs.

Does adding an impedance cable such as the 75ohm p to s cable for the etys er4s help solve the impedance mismatch?

No, that makes it worse. An impedance cable is in-line, serial resistance. That basically lowers damping factor. You want higher damping factor.
