    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    I agree with olddude, some days my SP1000SS can sound superb, very crisp and sharp and then on other days not so much. And this has happened on the AK240 and on my colorfly C4 so it must be me, but it seems so convincing to my brain that it's the equipment.

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    I have the AK CD ripper MK II which i use with the SP1000 and uses the Gracenote to retrieve the information for the cd off the Net. The trouble is about only half the time it gets the info with album cover etc. I understand that you will not get info for all albums, but is there a work around...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    When i get round to it, i want to back up all my music to my computer. I have a Mac and Windows 10, but which is more friendly to the SP1000 ? I have both commander one and AFT on the Mac (must be freebies version) but i've never used them yet. With Windows would it simply be drag and drop or do...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    I use a i-pad charger (2.4A) on mine because i have a A&K CD Ripper MK2 because i'm sure i read that it had to be over 2A to operate both at the same time. I use the same charger to charge the SP1000 on it's own as well, i've not had any problems so far. I presume this is safe and okay ?

    I have also experienced this, if the SP1000 is in a place where it drops below a certain temperature this happens to mine.

    Looks like the screen doesn't either. When the room drops to a certain tempreature this happens, at first i thought there was a fault but when it went into a warmer place it was fine.

    If mine has been in a cold room, when i first switch it on for a second, there is like a rainbow effect down the middle of the screen then it is fine.

    Thank you sir, you are a star. It seems to be working, slow but working.

    Cannot find copy/move function in the folder. You do mean within the sp1000 ?

    So in my case (living in the UK) you spend £400 just to rip onto the internal memory and that's it. Thanks Jason, i will see if i can transfer the albums from internal to sd card.

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    I've just done the update, but i had to delete some albums because the internal memory was full and it's now done it just fine. I have the A&K CD ripper and put a micro sd card in the SP1000, can anyone tell me if it will rip automatically rip onto the micro sd card (because the internal memory...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    I can't say i've had a problem with the EQ settings. It's made enough difference when i adjust it on my AK240 and the SP1000 for me to hear on my Grado PS1000 headphones. If you want to really hear a difference on EQ settings you should hear the Cowan DAP's, they have multiple settings (too many...

    Does any one know how to stop the SP1000 being "busy" on a computer ? I'm trying to move folders around without any success.
