I'm still waiting on my AK120 in the mail, so this only has a passing interest to me.

 

Gorila hands.....?

That's just silly. Not you're writing off perfectly good daps essentially because one didn't turn off 'mega special restoration DSP'

Exactly, but of course we clearly have quite a few high rollers among us.......... Wish they'd make a gracious donation or 2. ;)

Speaking for myself I am certainly no "High Roller" I don't own things like cars and rarely go out to pubs and never to clubs. In fact a friend told me how much the door charge is in one of my local clubs, its about the same as four albums from HD tracks, I know what I would rather spend my money on! When you think about it if you own a car a couple of years old you own something that depreciates faster than a boy bands followers! I have a fairly nice set up, the cost of which would have got me a cheap old banger of a car in todays market.

Having nice gear does not necessarily mean a person is rich, they just choose to spend their money on things that are not mainstream!

I suppose, I mean less is more isn't it! Is it intended to be used with an Amp? IF so does it utilize a Line out option

WTF!!! Designed by Stevie Wonder perchance. I don't care how good it sounds, I would be embarrassed to be seen with it.

Sure that's why we buy Digital Audio Players, to look cool in public, not to listen to music. For f***s sake, who the hell is using these devices to listen to music, I just can't understand people.
