Apologies if off topic but Amazon UK now have SanDisk 128gb micro sd card in stock.
Actually shows as 119gb in my AK240 but I can live with that.

Anyone seen any tempered glass screen protectors available for the AK240?  I prefer the feel of glass as opposed to the plastic protectors.  They're much more durable and easier to clean.  My screen gets coated with so many fingerprints.

I can tell ya it works well..........

 

One suggestion....before adding any music to the card, have the 240 format it.

Good tip. Now loaded up and works fine.
Only mistake I made at first was not following correct procedure to eject card I had been using. This caused the AK240 to continually search the new card.
Once I followed the correct protocol all was good.

I have an AK240 with a GR10 and a balanced HD650.  As someone who goes back to the original walkman I just cannot believe my ears - or stop listening!  I do have one problem - I use OSX and thus the Android File Transfer which works after a fashion.  My problem is that I have 125gb on the AK240 and I would like to back up the files on a hard drive but the Android program is capped at 4gb.  Does anyone have a workround and does the same limitation apply to Windows.

 

Thanks, David

I looked at the Japaneses site URL but cannot read it. What are the specs on these two "new" models?

I think it looks nice.  Very clean design, and looks easy to hold.  Not as bulky as 240, but sonically I'm sure inferior.  

 

I'm curious of the specs too.  What DAC is in it, output impedances, and max power, and etc..

I just don't like all that blank mass above of the screen, its like they extruded the side of the AK240 and just stuffed it all on top, I rather they put that blank mass below the screen (or even split that mass in half and put half on top and half on the bottom). Seems to have a balanced output though which is nice but seems like its still that darn 2.5mm TRRS jack.

I can bet a switch to cirrus logic for native DSD and both running android. I would bet on lesser cpu than 240 too.
