    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    I personally think the SP1k is still a very good DAP, even in 2023 - you can pick one up cheap. The relatively small improvements in recent DAPs isn't worth it, IMHO, unless you want a Roon control device which although Roon ready, the SP1k is not. I would much rather spend $$ on a superior...

    I have and use this; excellent sound as the seller describes and really really good with an Abyss Diana which I use as well. GLWS.

    Astell&Kern AK T1p Impressions Thread

    The T1p's are one of most unappreciated hps around. They give my $4k Abyss Diana Phi's a run for the money with hi-res files and good amplification.

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    I had mine replaced by AK in Irvine, CA (US). It was not cheap.

    Woo Audio WA22 Amp Owner Unite

    My brown base 6SN7's started to hum and buzz on me so I had to replace them with the newer 6SN7WGT Sylvania tubes. They both sound great!

    Woo Audio WA22 Amp Owner Unite

    That rectifier tube with the Tung Sol 5998 power tube pair, and the 6SN7WGT Sylvania driver tube pair produce the best sound I've ever heard on my Abyss Diana Phi headphones. Not cheap but so sweet.

    Woo Audio WA22 Amp Owner Unite

    I use the 596 USAF Tube with Adapter that I got from Woo Audio. It's a little wide with those dangled wires but sounds very good.

    Yup, I concur: the bass is really something else. I also replaced the foam with a bit of cloth; this opened up the sound. I so regret selling mine; I might have to get another pair. :)

    Dynaudio Focus 10, 30, and 50

    I know these are relatively new but anyone have experience/insights with these active speakers? I read about them and love the concept of no wire clutter, just two AC cables. With ROON throughout my house, I'll be running a CAT5 cable as an input.

    Ambre Audio Streamer in black and excellent condition. This has the i2S connection. No power cable included but I'll add a generic power cable if you ask nicely. Been very busy these past few years with family issues and whatnot. This is sitting around and needs to get used. Works...

    I have the same issue. Doesn't bother me though; I have a feeling it's from the tubes.

    Roon is live

    Yah, I meant 2 TB. I guess Roon was so busy with getting out 2.0 that they rushed installing Roon Core properly...just makes me laugh.

    Roon is live

    Well, this makes me laugh...I get a brand new 2 GB Roon Nucleus and when I try to add music, I get the 'FULL' message. I think Roon didn't install Roon Core properly in my Nucleus:

    Astell&Kern A&ultima SP3000

    How does the sound w/1266TC compare to a desktop HP amp? Can the SP3K perform similarly to a desktop HP amp? Curious...

    Roon is live

    Well, duh...I feel pretty stupid. I was excited to upgrade to Roon 2.0. Downloaded it and replaced my 1.8 on my Mac Mini and then...BOOM. My old Mac Mini is incompatible with 2.0 and I can't switch back to 1.8. Uggg... UPDATE: Ok, I installed 1.8 Legacy Core and it works (I had to install...

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

    Appreciate your enthusiasm but not sure if the 'organic' sound is due to the SP3K or the new Utopia. Keep in mind we're talking like around $10K with that cable. I'm doubting that it is on the same level as my desktop setup which is roughly around the same price point but maybe I'm wrong...
