    I am currently using 64audio's premium balanced cable. For me it is better, than the standard 3.5mm cable, since it adds more air and openness to the sound. However, it is thinner, if it comes to bottom end. Not perfect, but still better than 3.5mm. I was cross listening for some time with an Ares II, but am not able to enjoy it that much, given the mudiness it adds to the lower end. I liked the 3.5 mm more in comparisn.

    Currently waiting for Plussound's Exo t-metal. Still searching, testing :)

    All said with reference to M15 modules. M20 reduces air and openness too much, for my taste, independently which cable I use.

    This is the stock A64 premium cable, and the Effect Audio side By side. The stock cable is not a bad cable. As mentioned, its a tad thinner in weight, less bottoms end than say the Effect Audio Eros II. But not a bad cable for sure.

    below that a few images of Lionheart.

    Thanks. Guess I should have specified a 2.5mm connection instead of the 3.5mm?

    Back on track. Roon would make my SP1K so much more valuable and useful. Can't wait for this functionality.

    My preference is balanced out, the balanced vs single ended is sticky and ill stay out of that. your fine.

    Thanks for the feedback on ordering from Dignis. If I don't see the case in Tokyo next week, I'll order direct.

    I listened to it at canjam and it blew me away, the Xelentos really came alive!

    Keep sending emails, he will answer you sooner or later.
    It’s a pity that such attitude will only result to drive customers away.

    I would suggest you Plussound, Effect Audio, music-sanctuary has PWaudio and HanSound Audio, all these have great customer service.

    Has anyone had any paint chipping on their blue SP1000M or onyx black SPK/M?

    I can’t decide which color to get.
  12. szore
    I don't think it's paint...

    Sorry I’m half asleep, whatever the coating is then lol

    A question for former AK240 owners who are now SP1000 owners ...

    Is the amp in the SP1000 noticeably more powerful than what’s in a 240 using the SE output?
