Brand Spanking New A&K AK120II and AK100II - Page 62

The R10 freezes ever hour until it refuses to work. The sound quality is incredible, but pointless if the device doesn't even work or stops working twenty times a day. Having an R10 is like having Nicola Peltz as your girlfriend and only get laid 5 seconds every 4 months. Eventually, you'll give up.

Is it that bad?

Did not really seriously compare my 240 with the iPhone5s but I've found iPhone is less musical.  If 100ii carries the same SQ signature as 240 and it should be more or less like what you've found.

Has anyone compared single ended stock cable with a silver balanced out cable for the AK120 II + SE846s combination?

I ordered a silver balanced cable for my AK100II and SE846. I'll post impressions when it arrives.

Ak100ii is in Stock on Amazon:

Damn, wish I had some extra cash lying around as I'm very curious as to the sound.

What's your impression?
post #930 of 2696

I am very much satisfied by the sound of my AK100 II but I am very very disappointed with the interface with my mac 
I'm used to Apple devices that do not lock ever and are very easy to use, this new DAP three times out of six is not read by my mac, even if I'm using the special application of android, the texts of the songs appear very badly written and not in order, selecting between the memory and the memory card AK100 (an expensive Sandisk 64 GB to 100 dollati) I have to reconnect ... so I knew that the OSX operating systems other than feel sorry for them but I was expecting something Astell & Kern more.
