    I can't seem to find anything in the manual about this: is there a shortcut to quit the Tidal app (the APK, not the native app) without just hitting the back button a bunch of times?

    From the player home screen, swipe down from the top. You will see the app in the notification bar. Swipe left or right on the app to close it.

    Has there been any impressions of the SPKM-G versus the other variants?
     
  4. forbiddenbeat
    Oh sorry, I meant how do I leave the app when I'm in it (want to get out of Tidal and get back to native player)? Same flow?
     
  5. JasonNYC
    hit the home button. I would recommend closing the app also via the method mentioned above.

    Hello,

    I managed to demo the se100, Sp1000cu SP1000m and the gold edition and settled for the 1000m gold.

    All of the players are excellent however I narrowed it down to the 1000m series due to the smaller size.

    To me the gold edition has a smoother, more relaxed sound signature but with all the detail with superb imaging. This is the type of signature that I enjoy whilst listening to music so it was an easy decision to make, except the 500GBP uplift. I was not willing to pay an additional 800GBP for the 1000cu.

    The sound is very similar to the cu version of the flagship SP1000 with slightly less soundstage as the main difference to my ears.

    Would have been very happy with any of them but the gold edition came out tops for me.

    Oh man, I didn't know there was a home button. Doh. Thanks for the tip. :)

    I just got an SP1000M Gold version. It's too early for me to describe the performance. But based on my memory on SP1000 Cu and regular SP1000M (I sold both of them), SP1000M Gold is the best buy for me. Sound signature is very similar to SP1000 Cu. But the Gold version has subtle but noticeable tiny "edge" to individual instruments without going harsh or sibilant (better separation) and has a tad more airy with sweet lingering sound, to my ears.

    My goodness gracious....

    Just got my sp1000m... blue!
    Loaded it, updated, and the first listen with my CA Atlas is just perfection... they're made for each other... and no burn yet!

    Now the burning begins, but the smile on my face is complete!! :)

    Has anyone in the US received their SP1000M gold from A&K yet? I pre-ordered at A&K when they opened 3 weeks ago, but no shipping and now they are in stock in stores in the US...

    Who has the SPKM Gold in stock outside of A&K?

    If you ordered your's when A&K began their preorder back in Jan. (beginning 1-18-19) then you should receive acknowledgement that yours is shipping possibly tonight!

    Jason can confirm what I'm sharing here.
     
  12. Wooglish
    They are in stock at Moon Audio.
     
  13. DonR
    I see that now... on Moon Audio's site.

    Maybe Jason can help explain how M. A. received stock before us good paying customers (I was charged 1-22-19 on my CC) that have patiently been waiting in line with A&K USA for ours unit?

    It's hard to imagine someone ordering from M.A. today (stating in-stock!) and getting their SPKM-RG before us. I know I paid A&K USA for 2nd Day Air to get mine (quick) and won't see it sooner than next Tuesday the 12th.

    Looking for some clarity here Jason, please help us out?

    Pre-orders are shipping today! You should receive tracking info soon.
