    Hi Jason, any thoughts on my question?

    If you would rather not provide the details, that's fine - just let me know. Andy (Kong) is pretty open on the Cayin side, however if A&K want to keep this to themselves then that is ok.

    Regards

    Sorry, holiday here in the US. Our offices have been closed and this is one of the first long weekends when I haven't been at a show. Let me look back and I'll respond.

    First impression about sp1k amp was a perfect upgrade and at some point it was better than sp2k imo!!!

    With which IEMs/headphones/cables did you try it so far?

    I’m patiently waiting for mine.. pre-pre-ordered it on the day it was announced. :)

    I was using Legend X and Leonidas 2 in my combo rite now. The Amp was definitely perfect IMO

    Thanks for your posts, so it is nothing to worry about. I was just asking to know, if I am the only one having that issue, cause I might have returned it then or at least asked for another discount. One could expect a perfect finish on the back for the price, but the rest of the player's build quality and sound is superb, therefore it's ok for me now. Maybe the volume dial could have been less loose, but I guess that's because of it's button function. Again...thanks for your replies!

    Agreed that it is a big upgrade for my pair of u18t. Bass, separation, and power are all perfect. (Volume is set under 50 for mine)

    Hey Jason, one question.
    Does your 3 split case fit an SP1000 with amp module? All informations I could gather around do specify external dimensions. From the images it looks like a "naked" SP1000 fits just fine and there would still be some room to fit an increased height, but it's hard to tell how much room. It would be a letdown to order such an expensive thing and then find out the while doesn't fit.
    I fear the 2 split case wouldn't be enough to fit both my SP1000+AMP and my LCDi4.

    How does sp1000 amp improves sq or drive ability of sp1000? Any one can write something?
     
  14. JasonNYC
    There should be zero sound quality difference when using the amp since it is just providing amplification. The SP1000 is still processing the sound. There may be a perceived SQ difference with the added power to drive more power hungry headphones, but the amp module is doing no sound processing.

    Sorry for the delay in responding back. No, you cannot view the full file system on AK players. We lock it down for various reasons including preventing someone from corrupting the system files by accidentally deleting something.
