That's a deal breaker for me. Do you think they can fix it by firmware update?

QLS boosts it's Single Threaded Software Framework , it has it's advantage but also with limitations. I think at the moment there is no hope for a quick fix of firmware. QLS is very good at past product support, you can ask them if they have plan to improve 360 on FLAC support.
I haven't got chance to compare to AK, just speculate from what I heard--QA360 should easily win over AK when driving big headphones
by my guess, DSD is process by DAC, Hi Res FLAC will need some CPU power to de-compress
I also talked with Clark by email, he answered my questions kindly.
Yes, he mentioned high res flac support can't happen, unfortunately. Good news is that, we can put 256 gb sd card in it. I am still a bit interested. I checked my library, most of them are CD quality flac but I have quite a good amount of high res flac too. I can try to convert them or something, we will see. I will keep my interest in this dap and wait to see more reviews. Some of the people I value here is going to get one, I want to read their impressions and comparisons.
Some got their QA360 already, but looks like none has posted early impression:
