Yeah its amazing.
I am thinking about using this as my Home and portable rig.

I may have a Gungnir hitting the for sale section soon.  This is definitely a step up and portable.

Things have come so far recently!!

I might have to sell my soul to the devil to afford this player. Damn the specs entice me though...

I actually got one AK360 prototype in hand. Overall, sounds worse than AK240

Hey, I just ordered a Duet like 2 hours ago, from moon audio, think he will let me cancel? I can put the money towards this instead . I bet the Amp is sick..

Some say the deposit can only be payed in gold bullion or bearer bonds, and that Jude was so impressed by this player he had it tattoed on himself in 3 locations.

What you mean by more refined? Unless you mean more clean and transparent, artificial refinement may not be good for music. Music should sound as it is composed be it rough or sparking.

 

Yeah I agree with you my music already sounds better than what I thought possible from a DAP. :wink_face:

 

I would like to try one if that dap has the feature to make piano sound like violin or vice versa.

post #60 of 395

this is rediculous price and worst marketing strategy ever, 5k for a DAP? kill me please...

 

i will need to sell my 1+2 with uber, se846 and dx100 and guess wat, dat's still short more than 1k.....
