    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    I’ve had my SP1000 for seven months and three of those months it was out for repair. The battery became outrageously hot and the device wouldn’t start/charge again. Now the 2.5 jack is shorting our. About a week after receiving it back. It only plays the left channel if I push forward on the...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Even though the SP1000 and many other AK DAP have some of the best EQs found on portable devices it still produces listener fatigue for me. I become tired of listening within 30 minutes. Not even counting the listener fatigue, most if not all EQs on portable devices and even some low-quality...

    Home-Made IEMs

    Some wire manufactures add coatings to the wire. With Cardas each individual strand of wire has a thin coating on it. Even if it doesn’t have a coating from the manufacture, just melting the shield would leave residue. I found distortion at higher volumes and lack of detail all over if the...

    Home-Made IEMs

    I use a soldering iron on low to warm the tubing, then take a chopstick and push it in the tubing until it cools. I repeat the stretching if needed or for three tubes. I use glue to affix the 1.5 tubes (obviously). Then the 1.5 tubing OD fist perfectly inside that larger tubing. So it’s ok but...

    Home-Made IEMs

    How is everyone joining two or more drivers/acoustical to one tube? I join two 1.5 tubes together in a larger tube then step-down to 1.5 tubing. I can only fit three 1.5 tubes out all the IEMs I’ve bought.

    Home-Made IEMs

    Is there any place I can find lists of different popular IEMs listing the BA drivers and dampeners needed to build them myself? Anything from JH would be great. I already have the 16V2 and Roxannes 2 so I know that I like the JH sound. Obviously something with so many drivers would be...

    Home-Made IEMs

    So I’ve been looking online and ordering BA driver but I don’t see any information on the forums for the website telling me the size of the nozzles in millimeters. And the dampeners also have the same info for the size with an upside down T. Is this 2.08mm? I don’t see info PDF say...

    I could be wrong but I don’t think optical can’t sent bit for bit DSD.

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Yes, I bought a 61W charger with 9V 3A output. Mine recharges while playing music in less than two hours. Any 18W 9V 3A charger would do the same. I bought a multi Micro USB port charger that also charges USB C laptops, so that why it’s 61W.

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Why are you trying to create an issue? Are you really so insecure that you have to try to throw jabs at me. Oh Jesus Christ. You do realize that I’m a customer just like you. I am on a forum, on the correct post asking for advice related to the topic of this post. Why do you feel the need to...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    My statement has zero reference to my logic as process of thinking, it showed sarcasm. But your statement clearly shows the logic that it works for you so I must work for everyone. Which that can never be said with most electronic devices. Moreover, you have attempted to install an app on 1.17...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    May be not fw reason. My 1.7 is ok! Confirmed I’m sorry, I didn’t notice you come to my house and install apps on my player or wait for it to auto shutoff. So I’m not really sure how you can (confirm) that 1.17 is working perfectly fine. If I’m mistaken please let me know. You can confirm...

    So apps aren’t able to send audio over AK Connect? That’s unexpected.
