Brand Spanking New A&K AK120II and AK100II - Page 84

post #1246 of 1525
Is there anyway to know what you are getting? Once you purchase it, you can see through your DAP, correct? But without purchasing you are just really taking the word of the website? Is there any other way to get super high res files, from a CD purchase? I am fairly sure CDs are limited, unless it's a SACD.

On a side note, I received Rwak120b yesterday, really enjoying it... so much that I think I want a new 120ii...red wine of course.

edit:
btw that a sexy set up you got.

Yep. I just bought a quite average DSD recorded album. No guarenteed.

Hmmm...you are not only facing the time required to transfer your music but to upgrade your low res music to high res.

Disclaimer: I am not a student and I only spend my limited time to listen to either well-mastered highres PCM or DSD files....

You've bought 120ii in addition to your 240?

 A colleague on the same floor just bought one so it is convenient and comfortable for me to compare... Dont really like AB-ing at shops. I will try to compare again with higher transparency iems e.g. 1Plus2 later... Next week, I am getting a loaner of QLS QA360.

EQ settings depends on headphones. I use it gently to correct some mid bass hump, push up the vocal a little on my UE18 PRO, - all in all never exceed +2db overall, just a few simple corrections and now it sound so good. 

 

One of easy way is to check the frequency chart of the headphones first and then compensate for the dips and peaks a little to flatten it..u know like adjusting the color in photoshop, it does improve alot IMO.

Oh I see.

 

Agreed.  Somehow, regardless how quite the shop is (like Jaber in Mongkok), it is hard to get a good impression to do AB-ing at the shop.

Yes, that is correct. Got the same on mine.
