    I thought it was smaller, it is quite big

    I own spk and sr15 for travel, it would be “crazy rich” style owning both, which I am not

    Size of sr15 is so good

    SPKM is noticeably smaller when compared to SPK

    It all depends on what you are comparing it to, like M0 :wink:


    Bill Gates :p

    The SE100 has the best size usability wise imo, but it's surely lacking the golden touch besides having the better dac for golden ears :L3000::ksc75smile::gs1000smile:

    Any picture with a SE100 and a SP1000M side by side so we can compare?

    From left to right - SP1000, SE100, SP1000M. The SP1000M display is quite small...

    Not going into sound department I think AK devices have the best user interface. Like every time
    I add the new songs they show up on recently added song list. I find this feature extremely helpful in locating
    the new songs I just uploaded to listen. On N8 I have to create another folder for new songs and later
    remove and rescan which is a pain.

    I requested Cayin to add this feature but they basically told me to buzz off as it is not important. Dont believe they will bother.

    Lol same here!! But it’ll bring too much attention for me and my traveling... there are always wandering eyes...

    That's the excuse I'm going to use as well, even though I don't travel with mine.

    SP1000M Gold is more like the WM1Z than it is like the LPGT. Also warmer than SE100

    Do you hear noticeable sound difference between SS, M and M Gold or is it just subtle difference barely noticeable? if you care to comment...

    Subtle but there. SE100 was good and was perfect for a Youtuber. This is a tad more warm.

    For ref.

    OPUS #1 (special aluminum version)

    Dx200 w amp1
    FiiO X7 (1st gen 1st amp)

    COLD not warm, not neutral, seeming to emphasize treb? Not sure? not warm and not neutral...."Cold" could be named "other"
    FiiO X7II (stock amp)

    I think this Gold unit with the same stuff as the SE100 pretty much actually sounds more lively which means I can enjoy it more. Nice bonus to looking beautiful

    How do you compare sound-wise SP1000M Gold with SP1000 CU\SS? Is SP1000 still the flagship model compared with M? I'm about to buy one and debating which one I should get to get best experience for a money.
