Thank you for the feedback. I appreciate it. I missed this post among the fuss. As to the amp, I'm not sure. Good integrated amps nearly always outperform outboard amps in terms of adhering to original signals. Obviously outboard amps can be much more powerful. I assume it will be more powerful, but unless it has access to the internal signal it shouldn't be able to keep up to the signal of the AK380. It may -- and depending on -- how/for what headphone it is built, be able to sustain current into difficult loads better than the AK380. - NL: no load. I reference it in the review in both balanced and unbalanced and, at ohm image, show both balanced and unbalanced loaded and unloaded. - the screen isn't as contrasty, which isn't quite as fun looking, but is a bit more colour neutral next to a calibrated monitor. (I'm an advertising product photographer by trade.) - volume pot: it is more solid than the AK240. Its metal machining is better. I agree on placement. But that thing won't fit in a jacket pocket anyway. I reviewed it as a good-on-table-only device. - If you press your hand, or catch the AK380 falling, it will definitely let blood. It is a bad design. But no, they won't cut like a knife. I used the 'cut' a bit figuratively. Thank you again for your feedback. It was wonderful.
