the mids are there it is perhaps is masked away due to the warmer toanlity of the lower ends of the AK10. Cant say with burnin things have changed.

Thanks for that. I'll also check out the Onkyo app.
try it first if you can. Dont expect it to top that. I just bought mine hoping that one day it will support ipod nano 7G. I can live with that combo for on the go purpose for a long time. I am finding myself that when I go out I take the nano more than any other DAP I have. It is made for easy on the go music listening, it just one solid little gear that if it had 32 GB of internal space I think it would be very hard to beat.
I dont think the amp section in this is particularly powerful either, TBH. Quite frankly, I think this falls in a nether area, quality wise and it would be better to spend more and get a CLAS or other $500 MFi device with a *proper* amp.
It's not a bad device per se and if all you want to use it with are IEMs, it will suffice. But given that a little more gets you an ability to drive big headphones as well, I think this product only makes sense if someone values compact size uber alles.
