That's what I read....there is some Chinese forum that has the details, I don't have the link handy (sorry lazy). Google Translate was rough though making out all the details.

Never trust a product release on April Fool. Ever.

Their pricing is getting ridiculous by the year. Instead of things going down everything is rising exponentially!

 

With the model no. going higher, I reckon a AK1000 within 2 years with a price of $12,000!

I heard that the 480 is going to have an audiophilia sound with crispier bell bottoms, a slight sautee in the top end, and a melony mellow vocal range.

I think now the question is how to order them.

Lottery of course.

 

Last I checked, if you win the lottery, you have the option of being one of the few of paying for it.

FINALLY.........................

The proverbial Jesus DAP has finally been announced. I can hardly wait to smack the iBasso/Clip+/Sony fan boys over the head with this new AK player. I'm wagering once I get my high res files on it I'll be able to hear Melody Gardots nose hairs vibrate when she hits the high notes and the sound mix guy farting in the background
