Can you not tell the whole 'joke' absolutely reeks of orchestrated sponsorship instigated on behalf of AK themselves?

What's wrong with sponsorship?

let's hope that the real AK480 won't hit 3k.

Nothing intrinsically, but I can see some people disliking its implementation and consequences.

Complaining has been elevated to a high art on HF...

OK, I fell for an April Fools prank - but it seemed so plausible... :bigsmile_face:

That was neither a clear nor a positive contribution to the discussion. For the record, I prefer a paywall to sponsorship because it keeps the ethical boundaries clearer for everyone.

Just saw this and knew it was another in the fine tradition of Head-Fi April 1 "announcements." And this one seemed so plausible - the only giveaway was that the quoted price was far too low for Iriver. :veryevil:

 

One feature I really do like is the volume control centered on the top, where it would be easy to adjust while the DAP is in a pocket. Maybe for the real 480, which probably will be out in 6 months or so...
