    Astell&Kern Launches New flagship DAP and an IEM Collaboration with Empire Ears

    Which Android version is it based on? I obviously hope it's a recent one (12?). When is worldwide availability planned? Same as US?

    Astell&Kern Launches New flagship DAP and an IEM Collaboration with Empire Ears

    Same for me, I'm at SP1000 with the amp module, skipped the 2000 stuff.

    Burson Soloist 3X Grand Tourer Head Amp/Pre Amp w/Sub out - 10W XLR

    Not really build quality issues, it looked more like a small design flaw which was then rectified.

    Tbh it's not more difficult than changing a light. The most tricky part for me was to screw all those tiny screws when closing the amp. Would it have been better not to have this problem? Ofc yeah. But it's great that the solution was this easy.

    Haven't really listened much to it since, I just had a quick go to check everything worked.

    It's an addiction. It takes a cable which otherwise goes into another place, and its built-in cable gets placed into that connector. At the end you screw it on the heatsink, where there curiously are 2 holes. Looks like they already knew in advance they could have added something there. If you...

    Today I received the upgrade kit. It includes a small upgraded board, a couple of screws and a set of screwdrivers. Installation intructions aren't included, they should follow shortly. I guess opening the amp I'd be able to locate the part which needs to be replaced, but I prefer to wait.

    Aye, got that message as well. I've been using it at high gain with my AB1266 all the time.

    It was just one user who got the melting problem, it's not like the whole batch (which seems to be sold out) was affected. Mine has been manufactured during the same days and it's working just fine.

    Today I received the remote. It's of a good quality, but it isn't specifically created for the Volot, it does have many more buttons than those needed. Not possible to set gain and input with it, it just controls volume and (nice!) mute. The volume pot doesn't mechanically turn while setting...

    Well, he replied me on FB. In fact, he hasn't received it yet, he should this friday. Then burn-in, testing and writing, which won't start before 26th july. Still some long wait then.

    It was expected for yesterday, but nothing. Today there was a new dac review, thus I guess it won't happen. No idea on what's holding him back.

    Good to know. I don't use to turn on my amps without something attached. But I'm quite surprised there isn't some sort of protection for this (or a warning at least).

    I wouldn't overexagerate things. There are a lor of Flux amps around, none of them has that certification, but we haven't heard about burned apartments. There doesn't seem to have been many failure reports either. Not minimizing a serious issue, ofc, but things sometimes just break, even the...

    My impression is that treble improved quite a bit after some hours. Still far from the recommended 100h.

    They recommend 100h burn in time, and to turn it on 30 minutes prior to music listening to reach its full potential.
