I've got a stock 3 core cable with a stock 13 amp plug connected to my fridge and it keeps my beers lovely and cold,maybe if I connect a three phase 415v four core steel wired armoured cable connected directly to my nearest sub station they would chill that bit better,Jesus your all off your heads
Your analogy doesn't work. The point is most optical cables do not play high res files using Astell & Kern DAP and Hugo.
Think warm beer.
Astell and kern users with a Hugo is all bling look how much money I've got,it's like having a top of the range Ferrari with a state of the art roof rack your never gonna use,all the money you pay for a astell and Kern your by passing to go to the Hugo anyways,paying two thousand and 200 quid for 240 gig what a total rip off
Well I am not the one with a mortgage!
Mind you, I dont have a Ferrari but I do have an S Class. Is that a rip off?
Likewise I don't drink beer but Merlot.
Is that a rip off?
Good taste my friend, it's called good taste. A Rolex is bling whilst a Jaeger le Coultre is good taste and in that sense the AK240 is not bling, apart from the gold one.
Your missing the point your not using the astell and Kern for what is was designed for but hey no- mortgage s class merc who cares hey,just buy the company and make your own changes internally
I just think the DAC in the Hugo is better than the AK240. In the way years ago I used the digital output from a decent cd player to an external DAC.
Chord won't make a transport only as they say they all sound the same, which I don't subscribe to. Maybe Astell Kern would fill another niche here and forego the dac.
