Just wanted to alert people to these new mods. I was just about to finally dive in and buy an AK120 so had been doing some research. I've found some (very favourable) reviews of the MS-AK100 mod on head-fi so I headed to the website and found this new mod...
It looks as if this new mod combines all I had hoped for! Upgraded WM8741 dacs as well as maintaining the headphone out / volume control of the AK100 or AK120. Also the option to swap the optical in for a balanced out!
Here is an image of the mod from the website: (http://www.mezzohifi.com/)
I've e-mailed Mezzo Hifi and have also been informed there is a similar mod for the AK120. Hopefully I can afford one of these soon as it really ticks all my boxes.
Has anybody already gotten a hold of one of these? Would love to hear about how it sounds.
(Just a note: I'm obviously not affiliated with Mezzo Hifi since I have to save up for this before hearing it...)
