The Astell & Kern AK240 - Page 169

My current DAP is the AK100. I have a number of microSD 64gb cards to add additional storage to my rig. Question: Will the 64gb cards formatted as Fat32 work with the AK240?

I finally heard the AK240 at the So-Cal Head-Fi Meet-up. Certainly drives the HD800's tons better than a AK120. Unfortunately I heard it just after the Chord Hugo that was connected to a Meridian Sooloos streaming system. 

I barely escaped the meet up with my wallet in tact. Barely.

Anyone using the JHA Roxanne's with the AK-240?

Hello everyone, have had Peter at Double Helix cables recable my headphones and build me a new headphone cable for my Chord Hugo. He took some pics of them with his AK240 and sent them to me so thought would share them here. Will later have an 8-Wire OCC copper cable made with a balanced plug and a single ended adapter for the AK240. Will share those pics when it has been made.

Wouldnt it be more convenient to make a 2.5mm female to whichever termination you need for your home system

I mean those mini XLRs hanging from the headphones look like a bit of a pain, especially for portable use. 

Still glad to see balanced cables coming out with 2.5mm balanced cables though =)

Go take a look at Double Helix cable, he's got some AK-240 stuff, you may can use. Not cheap though.

Between Double Helix & Moon audio, if you e mail them, I bet they could whip up for the right price, there making them by hand.

Even the jack itself? Are they making jacks by hand? I want a 2.5mm TRRS hi-quality right angle jack/plug.

Oh by the way forgot to mention in my earlier post with pics that the Triple Threat adapters installed in my headphones have Audeze connectors and the headphone cable has an Audeze plug so will work with any Audeze headphones also!
