Thread Starter 
I don't use my Android cable and perhaps could swop with someone's Lightning cable.

Thanks, I will consider that option.

Does anyone know it will works or not? Will ak10 works with dsd converted to PCM by onkyo HF player without down sampling ( with CCK or without with last upgrade of firmware)?

Did you - or anyone else - in here compare the AK10 with the new or old CLAS?

Rasmus - I havent A/Bed it, unfortunately.   My CLAS -R/Conti V3 stack is for a totally different use case, so i dont really see the point of bothering with a comparison.

 

Quick q for other AK10 owners - can you remind me what cables/chargers came with it?   I can only find the Lighting cable and a USB cable, but the USB cable's other end is too thick to fit into the AK10 - which makes me wonder how I had charged it a couple of weeks ago.

 

[Nevermind.  I was using the cable from a camera - I found the correct cable]

Well, UHA-6S.MKII has more power, less hiss, more detail, better clarity, and more resolution. AK10 is great for a small portable thing, but isn't purely $300 worthy. I paid $200, so I think I had a great deal, but if you don't mind the portability, there are lot more options besides AK10.

Alright. I got my AK10 Micro USB cable. Now that I'm comparing AK10 and AK100, I can say few things.

AK100 has much more power and overall impact. Much more layered.

AK10 has fair sq for $200(i paid $200).

 

Hmm. I still like my AK100 more. This evaluation was done using: GS3+AK10+MDR7550 and AK100+MDR7550. I feel like part of this could be due to my phone's lousy usb audio out. I would like to do more evaluation with iPhone, but that is for later.
