It's not fair comparison comparing 1Z with KANN...but I'm liking KANN on it's own very good DAP but 1Z just sounded better especially after having it modded

SP1000 will be the new AK Flagship :)

god help, our wallets are draining out fast

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

Most likely not...we all know it makes business sense for the flagship to come to the market last
