X5 supports only NTFS and FAT32, not sure if your card is formatted in exFAT.

Yeah it had the same color as the golden AK100. A bit less shiny.
They will never sell these golden ones, according to the AK employee.
 

Can't answer that either. It was fairly easy to use and responded instantly.

 

I listened to the Final Audio IEM and the big headphone through the 2,5mm balanced out.
I tried my SM64 through the normal headphone out.
My DX50 has the newest firmware installed. Not sure about the X5 (the X5 refused to read my SD card for some reason btw).

So on the DX50, you were comparing the balanced AK240 to a single ended DX50?

Oh really? Yeah my card is formatted in exFAT...
Isn't the X3 capable of reading exFAT?

I did not know that. Weird.

I will definitely not buy the AK240. I still can't justify the price and I also really don't have this much money to spend on a DAP.
This DAP is made for people who take this hobby waaaaay more serious than me. People who want even the slightest improvement in SQ no matter what it might cost.

Yes I did :confused_face:
Not entirely though. I also compared both with my SM64 through the headphone outs of both DAPs.

That black box is for balance line out in two XLR male. It uses the phone out for earthed or something.

I ordered mine from addicted to audio ( Australia) for $2999 AUD (~$2650 USD) ...expecting to receive it on the 3rd week of FEB...

 

Hopefully my JHA roxanne will ship around the same time..

 

Now I need to find someone who will make me a balance cable to bond the 2 then i am set. 

 

I will provide my subjective review when i get it..
