I found this on a Japanese site...
"Information of great products have come into from Jaben headphones just before the festival! Is a world premiere. The Grove (The Glove) - GloveAudio A1 is a headphone amplifier drive compatible balance of built-in DAC to be mounted so as to cover the AK120 as the name. There is no cable. It is also similar to the proto of HP-P1 before. Is not a lot of information at the moment, but it seems to use the DAC by mounting the light terminal. It is ESS DAC so says Saber. Is 192/24 support. It looks also powered suit to strengthen the AK series. Attention is balanced output with two AK-type and Kobikonn 4pin connector on the headphone output. It is the balance of the portable terminal for the so-called RSA type and Kobikonn. Need to worry also about the balance of the portable drive, thanks to these two would be less. AK120 user's be able to use 2.5mm terminal balance is an asset of AK240 It is also revolutionary. Battery is like a rechargeable battery. GloveAudio Because I have the whole world distribution rights Jaben, I will sell it in Japan. But I do not know details such as the root. It seems like to much the first half 60000-70000 yen Estimated price, but it is not clear basically."
Honestly I'm a bit confused by this. So is this an optically connected DAC?? It would have to be a ********* great one if I'm effectively going to be using my 120 as a very expensive transport. I like the idea of it being balanced, but honestly it sounds like a gimmick.
Happy to be proved wrong though
Can anyone with access to a Jaben check with them? It sounds like they have exclusive rights
