This unit was used for about a week and indoors for review purposes. Its screen protectors and case have been left untouched, the item is in immaculate 10/10 condition, perfectly crystal clear glass, not a smudge or scratch anywhere on the body - new.

Pet free, smoke free house.


Thanks for your interest.

Just tried the SP1000M today thinking of upgrading to that, and was let down by the sound!

Still for sale since I will use my phone straight to kse1500 as of now

Hmm so the sp1000m doesn’t sound good? I’ve always fancied an ak but not sure what would be a good buy under a £1000

I just don’t feel the SP1000 is much audibly superior, it does have a slightly more holographic soundstage but the tonality of it is a bit too rich coming from the already slightly warm ak380. For me, tonal accuracy and timbre is morr important, and I just find the AK380 more linear and compatible with various headphones/ iems.

I do love the screen of the sp1000 more though, and it’s apparently getting offline tidal support so that’s a big plus.

But I still favor the AK380 sound, and think it’s a special DAP, it’s just I graduated university and don’t find myself listening on the go so much so I’m in no need for a DAP really.

Night and day, I had the AK240 2 years ago and immediately sold it after hearinga Qp1r.

I immediately sold the qp1r after hearing ak380, so the difference is huge
