5-pin mini XLR analogue out? Seriously? Is this how much you hate the brilliant idea of a 4.4mm jack?

Make it a 3-pin AES out like on the xDuoo x-10t would have been a way better idea.

Agreed, it's just not as durable as 4.4 balanced. If A&K produced a DAP with 4.4, I would be first in line to demo it honestly. If only the SE100 had 4.4, it would have been awesome IMHO...

It was just yesterday I went out with a headphone with my last 2.5 connection onto a 2.5 dap. 1.5 hr journey I lost sound from this connector four times. When yo an audio shop and had them remove the 2.5 connector and put a 4.4 connector and no issues on the return journey.

Oh man, that is bad. I would have been really annoyed if I were you. Good one on the 4.4 connector! It should be the basic standard on almost all DAPs by now...
