    oh noooooooooooooo, well i doubt sp1000 is more powerful than kann with that design, so it will have better dac and such but i predict it to less power than kann. to me the dac in kann is all i want as i stopped believing so much in dac numbers and i do not listen to dsd anyway

    i heard there are more releases in the summer for AK and I do not think sp1000 is AK new flagship for 2017
     
  9. Toolman
    Most likely not...we all know it makes business sense for the flagship to come to the market last
