    Does it sound different though? Or did you buy it for the looks?

    Yes, I bought it directly from Dignis. I have bought a number of things from them in the past, my favorite being their Sony colab case for the 1z, their shipping to the US is very fast and the packing first rate. The only thing I don't like about the case for the sp1000m: it is a bit thick, so scrolling along the right hand side is a bit challenging. Also, as with all cases for this device, including the factory ones, the play/ FF/ back buttons are a real issue and I second the need for a lock control.

    It is warmer. I always noticed a big difference switching from my sp1000 to my 1z, and it is less noticable with the gold. I bought the sp1000m specifically for travel though and do notice the extra weight of the gold. Honestly, if you fly a lot and weight is a premium, the non-gold version is probably the ultimate traveling dap...both versions are extraordinary imo, and the Tidal app side loading is just so nice relative to the 1z or others.

    With the factory case. Again, love the AK PEF28 cable, so far superior to the Campfire factory cable or ALO 2.5 balanced cable I bought.

    Damn that gold looks nice, as does the cable.

    Minidisc are officially selling the Dignis SP1000m Alcantara case here in Australia. When I first saw pictures of the case I thought there was gonna be too much blue going on. The more I look at it and think about it I'm starting to consider, especially after seeing pictures Wooglish posted where the case doesn't seem as blue as the retail pics suggest.

    $200AU for a case though...

    Could one side load the YouTube app in AK Ultima SP1000 and get great audio quality out of YouTube videos?

    Specifically, I’d love to feed my pream with sound out of YouTube videos using analog cables.

    If this is possible, could I also do this with any other AK DAP that allows android apps side loading?

    I don’t have experience with AK DAP’s at all.
