For 2.4 g they better deliver the dap in a limousine wrapped in 24k gold paper and signed by favorite band but for .5 g I can tolerate shipping by courier. biggrin.gif

I posted my upcoming rig (as soon as the DX90 hits our shores), guilty as charged. I hereby dare anyone to send me the AK240 and I will do a comparative review between those two $2400 setups :D

 

 

Seriously though, I'd love to try the AK240 to see if it's $500 woth of DAP in a $1900 wrapper or a fantastic single-unit rig worth the pricetag.

I look for one of those second hand. :wink_face: I wonder if AK is getting exactly the press they are looking for with the pricing of the 240. The AK240 isn't the issue, we need the DX90 to beat an AK100 Mk2 as an all in one. If it does that, the rest is gravy.

Are we judging by price on which daps should be compared together?

My post about wrapping a DX90 in 19 $100 bills might have been a satirical jab at this tendency only to compare things that are similarly priced...

Vs the AK360? I don't think so, LOL.

No, Soren. My question was not directed at you. I was just a little frustrated that a DAP that will be equipped with two high end DAC needs to be compare with iriver lower end 8740 make-over just because of its pricing.

Ironically the DX100 may already be more competition than the AK240 could handle...

If this is yet what is to come, the DX50 is a pretty good single 8740 dac implementation, if iBasso continues to keep pace with its ability to ace dac implementations, my feeling is we are going to hear what it sounds to listen to one of the best double saber dac implementation. I can't wait for the dap to be on sale. beerchug.gif

I never thought I'd say this, but the DX100 is definitely the better looking of those two.

I've always liked the DX100 aesthetic...I'm just not a big fan of touch screens.

I feel exactly the same. Function > Form. But the DX100 probably won't win design awards any time soon.

If they can only make DX100 thinner with it's existing features, I would go for it.
