It sounds identical to SS silver version, both different than Cu
The Onyx Black SP1000 is Stainless Steel with a black PVD coating, so the sound signature would be the same as the SP1000 SS.
I have a moss green SP1000m. I won’t sacrifice the discrete look even if the shining gold version maybe sounds a little better.
I never AB. This saves me a lot of money.
Can you please confirm that none A&K portable music players use OLED screens. Thank you.
Hi, I think the gold just has a different sound signature, but it's not 'better'; I and a lot of other people prefer the blue.
I was a click away from buying the Gold. I just can’t bring myself to do it with so little reviews out there.
I heard it, it sounds just like the blue except there is a little less 'air' between the notes. Slightly 'thicker' sound.
Yeah I’m sure the sound difference isn’t too drastic, probably a good thing I went with my gut and held off.
I switched to gold from blue. To my ears, "air" is pretty much the same between them. But I hear just a bit of "edges" on every single note that presents better separation. It's like changing a regular font to bold style but just by a touch. I also sense slightly deeper decay. Anyway, I don't regret my decision.
Maybe an stupid question...
Can i use the equalizer in bluetooth mode and perceive any change of sound in my bluetooth headphones?
Or this is impossible in this or any other DAP?
@JasonNYC or anybody??
So I’m basically looking to add a bit more low end to my A18t, do you think the Gold would help with that or should I look into a different cable pairing instead?
I believe the EQ does work when outputting via Bluetooth. I'm not 100% positive as I've never been asked that question and don't use Bluetooth with any of the players. I will confirm. Maybe someone here who uses Bluetooth headphones can chime in also.
Why not just bump up a couple db with the eq on sp1000? You should be able to get the desired results that way and not spend the extra cash.
I felt like that didn’t have much effect.
OK, so 'bold' is bigger, thicker. Thicker notes. Hence less 'air'; I think we are saying the same thing!
