I'll just sit patiently for another high end player manufacturer to come out with a unit with the same specs for $599.99

Patience is a virtue........Although I have not a clue what that particular virtue feels like.

Me too, this will be the Sony ZX1 , but I hope others will follow. I wonder why this marketsegment  is left behind by most of the big names in Audio? It is not that they don´t have the knowledge to do it.

I think in a world of rectangular smartphones, the design of AK240 is like a breath of fresh air. It is small in size and has that premium look to it. Combining all the factors, I'd say AK has gotten themselves a winner here.

Heard you 1st time - maybe better to call it "scalping on through amazon"...

I love how they sell for an additional $1k above the original price and still have +$3 for shipping :D
