I spoke With Vinnie from RWA. As you know he MOD the AK100/120 to create a REAL Line-out ( and he change the DAC chip).
Here is what he says ;
" ....Calyx do the volume like the AK players (digital volume control).
But it is NOT a real line out because the output still goes through the headphone output stage.
A real line out CANNOT drive headphones (e.g. 32 ohm load).
Same is true with AK players (and AK240) - they say "line out" but it still has a headphone output stage to drive headphones, so not a real line out but something close to that."
I am disapointed !! :-((
