Credible audio magazines are an oxymoron, they simply shill whoever pays them best.

The complete absence of accuracy in your statement is astonishing!

Similar to your statement as to how everyone else on the net is a pre pubescent. Wonder how these teenagers can afford $1000 DAPs.

I already corrected myself with that, good grief, don't any of you types read posts properly?? You of course just keep proving my initial point!

I would say this thread is going downhill fast but I don't think it's ever been uphill.

We are an emotional bunch lets stop before this thread is locked.

I agree, its the last you will hear from me on the present derailment, sorry for my part in it.

so an $1800 dap... wonder how it sounds compared to the HM901 and DX 100... did the AK 120 perform on que with those devices or... sub par to them

 

that said... O: any pictures yet

AK240 product page is now up on http://www.astellnkern.com/kern.com

Ok I think we can all agree that there is a middle ground between bitter AK bashing and blind fanboyism.

I also think AK products have an awesome design and finish, and even if they have yet to fully satisfy me soundwise, I am ready to pay a premium for great design and finish. On the AK240, this premium is a bit over my means, so unless I find it on sale at 1.6k$ max, I will pass...

Now I am still eager to hear trustworthy reviews, may they be professional or amateur, and comparisons with DX100, 901, Tera and ZX1.

I would never have bought it at that price. But let us avoid this ultra slippery slope biggrin.gif
