    I'm very much interested in the impressions people have of the AK70 mkII. Especially how the AK70 mkII sounds compared to the single AKM dac Kann. Everybody enjoy his or her' new DAP!

    Here is my first impression comparing with SP1000Cu:
    I don’t have Kann, but this may provide you some idea about the sound/performance of AK70Mk2.

    Anybody here on this thread pre-ordered Ripper 2? I pre-ordererd one on 9/19 but have not received shipping confirmation yet.
    Has anyone got a unit already?
    @JasonNYC, could you update us about the shipping status of Ripper 2 and other new AK goodies?

    CD-Ripper will arrive in our US offices on Monday. They will start shipping to customers and dealers before the end of the week next week.

    I believe the Michelle Limited is also arriving in that shipment, but let me confirm.

    How does the ak 70 mkii compare to the chord mojo+phone, and is it worth it when using akg n40 iem's?

    @JasonNYC Can you order the black version of the ripper mkII as the cart does not give an option?

    Is there a black version? I didn't know there are color options. Where did you find the info?

    There is not a black version of the CD-Ripper MK II as far as I know, unless it is a country-exclusive limited release. I will check, but for the US and most of the world, it will only be available in the gun metal.

    It's the lighting in the picture. That is the gun metal color, it just looks darker in this image from Moon Audio for some reason.

    It is the same image on the AK website. It really looks black on those 2 photos.
