    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Hi everyone, I am planning on pulling the trigger on the SP1000 but beforehand I would like to have some feedback on using it as source for open-back heaphones through the balanced output. I was thinking about the Focal Clear. Do you think it can be driven correctly? Thanks

    Astell & Kern AK70 MKII with dual DAC

    If I'm not mistaken the largest capacity mico sd card available (newly released by Sandisk) is "only" 400Gb.

    Astell & Kern AK70 MKII with dual DAC

    @WayTooCrazy This is just ridiculous! It is a rather expensive product and it is disappointing the see the absence of key features in this new release from AK.. The Plenue R seems to have the same issue though.

    Sony NW-ZX300

    @kms108 Maybe if a lot of people ask they will consider it.. :) @Mark2010 Absolutely I think it looks a lot sexier in black!

    Astell & Kern AK70 MKII with dual DAC

    @bluedolphin The shell is basically the same as the previous one only 2mm thicker and approximately 25g heavier (sorry I don't know the US measurements system)

    Sony NW-ZX300

    @Partlys4int I messaged AJ to know If they plan on stocking the cheaper ZX300A with only 16Gb ROM. Will update when I get an answer.

    Astell & Kern AK70 MKII with dual DAC

    I understood it is resampled to 24/176 PCM by the CPU before playback. I don't really know much about DSD but I suppose it takes the (possible) advantages out?

    Astell & Kern AK70 MKII with dual DAC

    Thanks for the info! But seriously who cares about installing a driver? It seems really odd to me to have a 192 kHz capable chip and not exploit its full potential... Even if they roll an update afterwards I would feel like buying an unfinished product, as I use my DAP a lot as a Desktop DAC.

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Thank you. It seems like buying it from CN would be cheaper than buying in EU, even with customs tax (which could or could not be applied). It's tempting!

    Sony NW-ZX300

    I'm really interested in the ZX300! Do you know some good sites/ forwarding services from China/Japan to consider the ZX300A or ZX300s Tourist version? EU volume cap sucks...

    You should also consider the upcoming Cowon Plenue R! It is cheaper but still packs some very nice features. I also want to change DAPs and was considering the ZX300 and AK 70 MKII, but the 24/96 limitation of the AKs USB Dac is a no-no for me...

    But the jack has 4 connections the two XLRs have 6 (combined). I thought one of the 3 pins on the XLR plug is for "ground". What do I do with that? I am not an expert by any means and new to DIY. This one confuses me :triportsad:
