    Astell&Kern new flagship A&Ultima SP2000

    I understand the resistance against disabling the screen swipe volume thing as it nullifies what A&K engineers might consider "feature", but the volume warning pop up in 1.21 is still inadequate for protection, as that warning only appear once, and you get somewhere above 70 in volume (which...

    Im not in jail, I just got tired of being called crazy and fueling the price hike everytime I write I own a pair of SE6 or any review at all. Beside, I am so content with my purchase that I dont bother checking out all the new IEMs that came out since the SE6. My experience with the company has...

    Astell&Kern new flagship A&Ultima SP2000

    This is a question as old as time, but has A&K ever admitted to tuning their SS and Cu DAPs differently soundwise ? I was told my monitor is a bit dark and should be paired with the supposedly brighter SS version and bright silver cable, but I saw a lot of review endorsing the Cu version. I...

    Sorry for digging up the grave, but now I need balanced cable for my SE6. Anyone have prior success pairing their SE6 with A&K DAP and can recommend me a cable/cable maker? Thanks in advance.

    Sorry for the late review, everytime I pick up the keyboard and begin to write, I see all the bashing post on head-fi regarding the price and thought "why bother... the prejudice against the price is already too much that no degree of review would convince people otherwise anyway". The second...

    Everytime I put on the SE6 and prepared to write a review, I just kept on listening and then forgot about writing the review... The SE6 has created a huge time sink in my life lately.

    Items that are above $2000 in value has to go through formal import entry... I.e delay. Fml, this is karma for lashing out in earlier post I guess..

    1. Is it a right thing to terminate ownership transfer? It's an understandable position. When it takes you two month to complete an order, spending your time working on reshelling is not an option. 2. How you you manage things differently? Train more apprentice, but then, this should have been...

    I second that, through my correspondence with him he is an honorable person in my book. People just bash something they haven't heard and someone they haven't had interaction with is just how it is these day. But this need to be said.

    To me affordability is not elastic. I either can afford it or I don't, it's not stretched by selling me an advertised 5k product at 3k price. If that dick move works for some, I have bad news for them going forward in life. Price is what you pay, value is what you receive in return. 5k put its...

    Well you can rent one. But there is no test drive for those car ever. They dont make enough car to sell and they dont have to do marketing. In fact they want to limit the number of order.
