    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Dead quiet—though I am not sensitive to hiss as much as others. I just love the combination.

    Any chance you got to compare them to the Campfire Audio Andromeda Special Edition: Gold ?

    Anyone? What about if that search is extended to open-backs? @KB ?

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    And this is explained by the simple fact that, when I did this test, I didn't use the arm (instead of arm64) version of Spotify, and just the AK music "app"; hence the feeling that it was snappier... because it was.

    This was, indeed, misleading from my part.

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    @olddude @mvvRAZ @JasonNYC Right... mystery solved :relaxed: For the context: I jump in-between Spotify & the AK Music "app". (If I can call it that but AK owners will understand me.) Soooooo... Spotify was the laggy little one and the AK Music "app" is, in fact, snappier. Now, why was...

    Tried it — no change, thanks though. Smoothest Android-based DAP I had as well. Sony's ZX300 is way ahead of the SPKM in terms of UI speed though :( Since I came from the ZX300, that might explain it.

    Oh don't get me wrong… I'm not moving anywhere away from this little wonder the SP1000M is — and I am pleased. As I wrote on the SA700 thread, I second the fact that AK's android integration/shell is second to none. Buuut — I won't budge, for the price, it should be (even more) faster/snappier...

    I actually LOVE AK's UI. I'm just saying that I find it too slow — especially at this price point. Accordingly, I just wondered the aforementioned about the UI's future.

    On a mission to like jazz

    True — it's reallyyy wide :) From Miles Davis: I tolerated Kind Of Blue but it starts to grow on me. Otherwise it's a mix and match of Spotify's recommendations (which usually aren't bad) and me stumbling on something from Miles Davis which I try out to see if it'll change my mind. I'll give...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Recently got my SP1000M and found it as slow as my SR15… which is a quad-core… go figure. Went here to do some further research and stumbled on your input and I didn't have this experience as of yet. However, putting my music on a micro-SD card rather than on the device's memory for that...
