    Astell&Kern A&Ultima SP2000T Impressions Thread

    Seems to me that I recall in the old days (I had a 120 ll and a 240SS) that the Chinese version only got its own firmware, but I could be wrong or that might have changed. Jason will likely answer you soon. :) Edit- and there it is.

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    I just ran the most recent update for my 2000T. UI is the same as before. Jason, is there going to ba another update with a new UI? My SP1000SS is now hooked up to an amp and Kef speakers (Toslink) for living room use so a new UI is not something I really care about. And it's what, five...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Optical out is a Tosslink 3.5 from the AK into an amp. I have one working right now on my cheap amp.

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Optical out is digital on the AK. So I guess no tube amp?

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Anyone here running their SP1K through an amp via optical? I got a reasonable amp for about $90 (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SLRBDV4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1) but am looking to upgrade to around $500. Tube or solid state? I'm running them into my Kef towers...

    Introducing the Astell&Kern A&ultima SP2000T

    Tos-Link out of the 3.5 port is how I do it. Your 2000T has a manual in Internal. Pull it out and look it up. If you haven't purchased one yet, just Google the manual.

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Time is relative. :) Because China keeps closing down, the main time delay was once it arrived. It sat in the PO there for a couple of weeks, since I guess they weren't delivering. Time out from SoCal to there was quick, as was time back once he worked on it. I think he took less than a...

    Got it back all fixed up and spiffy new. Can’t say enough good stuff about PWA.

    I bought his Stormbreaker while my 1960 was being repaired. If anyone wants to reunite the Odin with it, I'm willing to sell it for cost and shipping. I put about a month on it.

    I thought I read somewhere that got fixed, but I could be wrong. Why not PM Jason?

    Resets won't fix everything, especially if you have a corrupted file.

    Astell&Kern A&Ultima SP2000T Impressions Thread

    First, take a look at the Internal drive and the MicroCard drive and make sure you didn't load music or other files OUTSIDE of the Music folders. Take out the MicroCard, do a full reset and see if it works. If it doesn't, remove all music files from the Internal, do a full reset and see if...

    PW Audio Cables Discussion Thread

    Did you actually PM Peter? Or did someone else tell you that info? Because I just had mine done (as I posted) and there was no issue whatsoever with having it rebuilt. Also, I'm a bit confused by your post. Is/was the entire issue cosmetic wear on the hex? Nothing that affected the sound...

    Went through a lot, kept the one I love. That's the trick to this hobby. Otherwise you are always chasing the next big thing.

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    There will never be an IEM that satisfies everyone. Likely there will never be an IEM that satisfies a large segment of the audio-buying population. For obvious reasons. That said, it's always fun to watch new things drop and the scramble to get them, the happy posts, and then the new...

    High end (IEM) cable thread: impressions, pics, comparisons and reviews.

    Silver Dragon is very clear. It needs a warm source and a warm IEM or it will be too clear and sharp.

    Again, I found the 1960 to be superior to the Stormbreaker. Both are made by PWA.

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    While we are on cables, I just got my PWA 1960 back and am able to compare it directly to the Stormbreaker I bought to fill in while the other was in Hong Kong. I posted a fairly full description on the PWAudio thread, but bottom line, I don't think the two are the same. They have...
