Astell & Kern AK10 portable DAC and amp - Page 17

post #241 of 342

Hello all,

 

Beyer Germany processed my card this morning for my a200p order.  I should have it in a week or so but since i never tested the ak10 i wont be able to compare the two but still should be able to provide pics/feedback.

 

Will be hooked up to (iphone5/nexus5) and some hp's (beyer t5p and dt770, bose qc15, sennheiser pc360, shure se210).

 

Great forum :)

Lol. I'm pretty sure that they are the same. When I asked iRiver USA for accessories for AK10, they told me to contact beyer, as they are the same.

For those have played with AK10 how's the build quality ? And do they have a belt clip to put on this thing ?

Build quality is nothing but solid. A well built device, as expected of iriver. And they do come with a case with a strap, so you can attach it to a belt. I do that sometimes.

Hmm, according to German hifi forum, Beyerdynamic states the A200p's output impedance as 28 Ω. :confused:

 

Also, EU buyers beware: the EU version of the A200p has only 150 mVrms and is only recommended for ≤ 32 Ω, whereas the US version has 1,7 Vrms and is recommended for ≤ 600 Ω (source: beyerdynamic.de).

Just got mine from Beyer EU yesterday.  Construction is ... well .... German :)

 

EU buyers must also be aware that there is the EU audio limiter (can be deactivated at each utilisation)

 

As for SQ i can't say much atm since i'm testing it on a brand new pair (delivered also yesterday) of t5p's.  I can say through that with the audio limiter the sound is not loud enough to push the t5p into audio outerspace.  I'll test it further with my old DT770 pair.  See how it goes.

How do you deactivate it ?

Hold the play/pause button for a few seconds (it resets it to zero) then you turn it up.  You will see the blue volume light blink red (which means your volume is higher than the recommended EU limit).

Thanks so much for the quick reply. Would the leckerton uha 6s be considered a full size dac/amp? Cheers.
