    DX220 A new view to your music. *** Latest Firmware: 1.18 Local *** Link for User Guide 1st Page. AMP9 Now available! And DC01.

    If more/better mid definition is what you're wanting, you'd likely be verry happy with AK SP1000, SP1000m, or SP2000. SP1000m has silky smooth but high definition mids (more so than DX220/200), while still sounding extremely good in the low/sub and high end.

    Sorry... I wasn't at all sure it was your firmware update. Just the post by @Jeffyue that linked back to your post where you said pure Mango didn't save Amp9 gain settings... I thought you were referring to the issue as related to your firmware update. However, I did revert back to the latest...

    Two DX220 questions... In Mango OS, Amp9 High Output keeps reverting back to low everytime I turn it off, then turn on again later. Is there a way to save it to always have Amp9 on high output? In Mango OS, is there a way to turn off volume knob function when screen is off?... so it doesn't...

    You will love the Clone Silver. That's what I have permanently attached to my Legend X. Quite an improvement over the EA cable it comes with.

    Well... the case that comes with the dx220 is friggin' bu** ugly... completely due to the color. How they thought that would be widely appealing to customers I'll never know. All they had to do was make it black or gray, so as not to "offend". So by that standard, that Dignis case is beautiful...

    Astell&Kern new flagship A&Ultima SP2000

    Ridiculous comparison. You're comparing $20k of "desktop"/home equipment versus a $3k DAP? If I were you, I'd be quite disappointed if the home system didn't sound better. Also, Metrum Adagio into Mark Levinson 585 is redundant... also known as overkill. You must have lots of disposable income.

    Just for reference... I ordered my Clone Fusion cable November 16, 2018 and received it March 15, 2019. Seventeen weeks from order to delivery (better than the 6 month+ wait time for the previous silver litz I bought a couple years ago). They are awesome cables. Ooze quality, great sound, look...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Is there any way to transfer music files wirelessly to the sp1000m from another device.... like my phone? I'm thinking there's not. But it would be cool if there was... since I'm at work and there's new releases out today that I'd sure like to get over to my sp1km to listen to!

    Astell & Kern SE100: A&futura Impressions - Reviews

    Yeah, come on A+K. Work on some of the functions of the interface now. While the speed is great, some of the other basic functions are lagging behind other players. Artist\Albums should only show albums. Then selecting the album shows the songs for the album. Also have the option to sort...

    Double Helix Cables Thread

    I've attempted to find and buy other cables as good as DHC silver litz. Every time, they either don't sound as good, aren't as comfortable/flexible, are terribly microphonic, or have some combination of these three issues. DHC exceeds in these areas more than any other cable I've been able to find.

    Same thing happened to me. Ordered an "in stock ships immediately" adapter back in August. I got it, but it took about 3+ months. I odered a fusion iem cable back in mid November. Been 8+ weeks now. I probably shouldn't even begin to expect it for another month or two. You just have to know...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    I have a small zippered compartment in my backpack, separate from everything else. I wrap the dap in a big-ish plush microfiber towel, fold the excess around it, stuff it in the compartment, and zip it up. It fits snugly, so it doesn't bang around or move around on the go. Works quite well...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Makes a difference how? It doesn't work at all without the unbalanced ground? Why isn't the ground reference from the balanced connection sufficient?

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Sounds noticeably better how? I haven't tried balanced on the SP1000M yet. But on the SE100... there is hardly a difference (provided SE output can drive your IEMs/phones with enough headroom left). The only noticeable difference on the SE100 was that the SE output seemed to have just a touch...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Jason... any chance there's gonna be a change to the UI to NOT have to see every track in each album when selecting Artist/Album? Would be much better to be able to scroll the albums and only see the tracks for each album by selecting it, and then go into another menu level. As it is... if you...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    DO NOT use a balanced adapter. You will/could damage your player. You need a balanced cable to your headphones/IEMs to use the balanced output. If unbalanced is well designed (and on A&K players it is), it will be similar in quality to balanced. It may sound slightly different. Whether it's...

    Astell & Kern SE100: A&futura Impressions - Reviews

    As long as you have phones or IEMs that have extension into the low end, the se100 will provide it. It has great extension into the sub-low end. However, se100 won't add any low end to help with phones or IEMs that are shy of it. I'm a bit of a basshead, and it has plenty for me thru Westone W80s.

    Had my se100 for... month and a half or so now? All I know is... the more I listen to it... the moreI like it! I do think it's good! :ksc75smile: Sound quality is stellar. But also, every time I use the interface, I'm more impressed with how smooth and quick it is. But in general, I totally...

    Incoming Astell & Kern New: A&futura and A&norma

    Yes, but then you have to scroll through every album you own to find the one you're looking for. No one wants that. Much easier to narrow it down by Artist first.
