    It's definitely a kind of stripped down Android, though the ROM is almost as big as a lot of full Android ROMs. People don't actually dislike Android, the just think they do. So if it doesn't say Android, and it's heavily skinned, it's suddenly way better.

    Hmm... been debating getting a new dap, something higher end as I don't have a really great dap.  I wasn't even aware of this coming out until today, and had been playing around with the idea of getting a Fiio X7 due to it's versatility.  As it is, the AK70 would fit just about any need I'd have for a dap, and I already have a Mojo to pair with it, as my current transport is a gen 1 Fiio X5.  The lack of a 2nd mSD slot isn't an issue for me, so I have no complaints there, plus I'd be happy with the 2.5mm balanced too.  Hmm...  do I really want to spend the money, or just keep using what I have and enjoy the sound.

    It'd be interesting to compare the sound using my iPhone as a transport for the Mojo. After trying a number of DAPs, I've stuck with my iPhone as the sound is, subjectively for me, the best (excepting the AK380, which I haven't tried).

    I highly recommend NePlayer both as stand alone and as iOS app. By far the best I have tried.

    Dignis has come up with some cases for the AK70/Mojo combo which looks rather nice.

    Sorry. Just subscribed to this thread. I've been eyeing the AK300 for sometime but the AK70 has got me more interested because of the small form factor...plus cheaper price. :)
    Anyways, something has been bothering me recently. Every dap thread I've been to, people seem to pair them with the Mojo. I don't get it. Pairing amps with daps I understand. But isn't Mojo an dac/amp? Then what is the point of buying a dap? You might as well use an iphone/android phone and pair the mojo w/ that. Wouldn't the sound still be the same?
    Maybe I've got the wrong understanding on how amps/dacs/daps work and I hope someone clarifies this for me.
    Anyways, will be buying the AK70 when it gets out. Believe or not, I got interested because of the mint color. Lol...it's just...different and refreshing.

    Personally I'd like to keep my phone separate as the phone battery drains fast enough, unless I carry something like the Cypherlabs -dB which would charge at the same time (the Cyperlabs has a large battery, not like the Venturecraft).
