i think the power output is lower than AK100 as well? at 1.35v?
Definitely a no no to full cans i think
eh really ? thats a bit annoying , so its a 1k dap that is only for iem ?
There seems to be a bizarre psychological trait to many DAP designers - they work so hard to produce a quality piece of electronics engineering, and then they either willfully or negligently omit certain features which are known to be criticisms of other DAPs. So I have come to the conclusion that many DAP designers/engineers are closet masochists!
i have no problem with the impedance, but having no back/fwd physical button is annoying
Well, I anticipate impedance problems with my JH Roxane that are only 15 Ohms !
15ohms is fine... my multi-BA IEM is also at 15ohms and there's no problem with my 3ohm device
whats with manufacturer and their 3 ohm ? Ak100 mk2 is "fixed" into 3 ohm, ak120 is 3 ohm , now calyx is 3ohm , is there any engineering reason why ? Or is this just coincidence?
They like to bring flawed designs so you can buy the "upgraded" version a year later. I wouldn't be surprised if AK240 would have less than 2 ohm output impedance and several months later AK100 MKIII and AK120 MKII would come with the same output impedance values. Of course with an extra cost.
One of the Russian modders on the AK100 thread (wlaedrus I think) took an original AK100, continually lowered the OI and checked the SQ. I think his preference re SQ was either 3.2 or 3.4 ohm rather than the 1ohm of the then only available RWAK-100. So maybe SQ has something to do with the 3 ohm fixing, maybe not of course...
Are You sure it's real fanpage? This one is 100% legit - https://www.facebook.com/astellandkern?fref=ts
