APRIL FOOLS! Astell&Kern AK480 Music Player! - Page 16  

post #226 of 395
I checked other sites and I was able to pull some more information about the design, it really sounds they are pulling the heavy artillery on this one.

That's the curve of external cell phone signal isolation chip versus internal dac circuitry, notice the peaks are all eliminated.


Quad gate driver circuits.


That's their envelope sound generator/constructor eliminating the ground entirely and amplifying the sound without distortion.

Apparently A&K have hired this guy to draw the lottery tickets and personally deliver each unit to the lucky (sic) recipients!

I believe the OP is mistaken -  my industry source informs me that the top prize actually looks a little different:

 

 

 

I am reliably informed that it has quad ES9018K2m implementation, balanced LO & HO, and 2x microSD card slots (which are visible in the above picture). Power output likely to be marginally higher than DX90, but not as high as DX100. I notice that the DX180 appears to be approximately 4-5mm thicker than the DX50/DX90, and that does make sense, given the extra chips, µSD slot, and, presumably, higher-capacity battery to handle the extra demand. Price expected to be sub-$1000, which sounds about right, given iBasso's tendency for excellent value-for-money.

Wait, wait! Hold up, guys!

 

Just got some news that the AK960 prototype has been made! And it's selling for, you guessed it, $9,600 USD!

 

Get on it!

 

 

 

This is a hoax for those who take things too seriously.
