no, I don't think so. ultima is still a flagship :)


no, it's more natural, more organic, more engaging, etc. but I won't call it warmer


maybe new SE200? two DACs, two signatures… I didn't test it, but reviews are positive


So sounds like the Alpha is more musical warmish and bassier then the sp2k ?

Thanks the answer I was looking for 🙃

I want warm and fun so I can see the ultima CC as my dap. Will wait for sp3k with 4.4 jack then

Anyone can compare it towards lotoo paw 6000? I guess the latter should be more "reference"...

For anyone interested the KANN Alpha pairs lovely with the Aeolus.
4.4mm Balanced with Mid Gain.
Drives them perfectly with loads of headroom.

I was wondering how it could perform with the Atticus, and that's the closest we could get so far, I guess. :) tnx
