Is there a significant sound quality difference between AK100 and AK240?
Also, how would you compare their sound to Ipod Classic 5.5 gen?
thanks for your reply. I see. I have guessed that. But carrying a super expansive device like that isn't good for me. I'm thinking about getting an AK100 2nd gen. Do you think there's a big sound quality difference between AK100 and AK240?
cool, that really makes me want to buy AK240. If it was not 2500 dollars, I would buy it right away. I have bad memories with portable music players. Last time, I dropped my Cowon X7 to a puddle and it died on the spot. I don't want this to happen to a device that costs 2500 dollars.
I hope AK100 2nd Gen has comparably good sound.
The AK100II and AK120II have comparable sound quality. Is it the same, no. Is the difference worth the extra money --> your call
I would say the AK100II is a huge step from a regular player (read mobile phone). The AK120II is halfway towards the AK240. I actually always preferred a dual dac set-up (also with the first AK100 and AK120), so I always went with the 120 after comparing.
The AK240 is not really something to consider when you're not crazy about music, details and in the end DSD.
