    Does any know if I can install additional language support for the sp1000m? I need the traditional Chinese support to search my songs. Thanks!

    For traditional Chinese language support your SP1000M must be running on the CN firmware. The CM firmware doesn't support traditional Chinese language or input. To check, go to settings > system information. On that screen it should show the firmware version and whether it is the CN or CM edition of it. You should contact @JasonNYC if you happen to be running the "wrong" firmware edition. He can help with that.

    For a full list of the country, language and keyboards options available with each firmware see below:

    CM firmware:

    Country : Europe, USA, Japan, Russia, etc. expect for CN version
    Language : English, Korean, Japanese, Russian, German, French
    Keyboard: English, Korean, Japanese, Russian

    CN firmware:

    Country : China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Korea
    Language: English, Korean, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional
    Keyboard: English, Korean, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional

    Off topic: I find it rather odd that the CM firmware doesn't support QWERTZ and AZERTY keyboard layouts for German and French input respectively, since it does support those languages. People from those countries must therefore use a keyboard layout they are not used to.

    You can ask a firmware imagine for China then manually flash it to sp1k

    Hi headfiers, May I ask how good or bad SP1000 as source component in your experience compare to standalone DAC? I am using with HDVA600 and it sounds great but curious if I should up grade to better standalone DAC at budget of 1,000 to 1,2000 usd what would you recommend? I like using AK connect but if I go for DAC I will use roon and microrendu.

    I compare lindemann 24/192 and SP1000 as source component sound better to my ears.

    Thank you for your advise.

    I have the RME ADI2 DAC, which is one of the best standalone desktop sources I’ve tried in that price range. Still prefer the 1000M myself
     
  6. hemtmaker
    thank you all. I will PM Jason, cheers

    Thank you for your answer RME ADI2 DAC is interesting choice. How much better RME ADI2 campare to your SP1000M. It is AK DAC chip I guess sound charecter would be similar to SP1000M right?
     
  8. mvvRAZ
    The RME is a bit more neutral, while the 1000M is somewhat brighter and has better clarity. I like bright IEMs and sound so yeah, that’s why I prefer the AL :)

    Thanks so much this is helpful. I will then keep SP1000 I like their sound and I like AK connect use as steamer, very clean set up I hope SP1000 will be roon ready soon.

    My only issue is AK connect interrupted by override Spark App in upnp set up. I wish AK would finish new firmware with roon ready that will be all in one dap of the dream.

    I'm also looking for a good desktop DAC, something to maybe replace the RME ADI 2 DAC, but I'm yet to find something I really like

    I’ve actually had a consistently weird experience with that

    I got the SP1000M, and at first it was really slow. Took about a month of consistent use for its UI to become actually quick and pleasant to use. Same with my AK SR15

    This is a rare occurrence. I have been notified of only one other case, not many. I see you have a replacement on the way.

    I just found out Audirvana plus found SP1000 UPnP. I wonder why Roon could not find SP1000 UPnP but Audirvana found it anw it sounds great playback using Audirvana. If I can use with Roon it will be great so I don't switch between apps back and forth.
