    Looks like many dual-SP1000 and AK380 owners actually prefer the sound of AK380. Can anyone share your thoughts?

    I had a 380 black with Amp for a little while, I didn't think it was much better than my RWAK240 so I sold it . I now have the SP1000 and it's a clear step up .

    OK, but what is it that makes it sound better for you than the SP1000?
  6. Samuel777
    It's natural cooper cover, oxydation and th fact that it get tarnish. That is something characterizing sound quality of the real cu DAP.

    So the copper of the SP1000Cu will not rot like my AK380Cu does?

    For the best quality sound : ak380 copper is the adhequate. It is as it is, but deliver something top in term of SQ. The difference is more noticible than with or without the leather cover.

    Good for you then. I believe strictly in only what I hear and hence read reviews always with a pinch of salt. I pay for what I like rather than what others claim that is "good".

    Hello little SD card Help. I have the CU version so I guess I am limited to 128g cards, but I see on the stainless that it allows 256g cards. What is the maximum card size I can use in a AK380CU and do I have to do anything like partition the drive? I tried searching but looking for things is not my best skill.

    thanks in advance
