Brand Spanking New A&K AK120II and AK100II - Page 24

post #346 of 3512

That's the case they have up on the information page for it so... likely.  And yes... ugh :P  I like the AK100II case though.

I'd rather wait for Dignis to come out with a better looking case for the 120II...

After the success of Ak240, people would think 1000usd for AK100II is a bargain. There are many people who are not willing to spend so much for AK240 but have enough to spend on AK100II to enjoy a piece of portable luxury. They are the same people who don't want to take the risk of buying Chinese DAPs because build quality and are more trusting to Sony, IRiver or Cowon. It is normal to continue to churn out new things to keep the revenue flowing in when people are always looking for the next big thing.

They are not in the "hi-end" audio business that's why...

Really curious about what the expected battery life will be for the AK120 11. Trying to figure out whether i should get the AK240 instead

Same battery, less processors, should get more life.

Yeah people quote between 7 to 9.5hrs. Wonder why AK doesn't quote it. For ak120 (old model). 14hrs is quoted, and i got more like 10hrs..

But is all your music 16/44 or less and are you playing at moderate volume. This will also factor in to battery time

Should be lossy I think.. I had around 60% 16/44, 30% 24/xxx and 10% lossy and I only had around 10hrs or less on my old AK100MK2
