Capitalism means sellers offer what they want to offer and buyers either buy it or go elsewhere.

Enjoy your FIIO

Yes and therefore DAP manufacturers should try to support as many file formats as they can.

If not, users looking for support for a particular file format will go buy elsewhere and the company looses what could have been a potential customer had they decided to support it.

Exactly how capitalism works indeed. Kill or be killed.

Precisely. As far as I recall, they're the only manufacturer still holding out. They obviously have plenty of business cause they've been doing this for years under AK... but they simply won't get *mine* until they add that support. That's all I was stating.

I don't believe AK "cares" if you buy or don't buy their products because they do or don't have the options you desire. And we are a user forum (though Jason/AK is on here sometimes), so we really can't help you. You could always contact AK directly and make your needs and desires known.

Sonarwork really helps my hd800s shine.
Blacklist on iriver's eyes.

Best of audio apps were not in whitelist until 2022 is not fair

My SP1000M, also on latest firmware (1.65 for me). Thanks!!!

Is that some 3rd party launcher?

Yes, it is Nova launcher. The A&K launcher will not show non-whitelist apps after a firmware upgrade to the latest (at least for me). It's best to stay on earlier firmware if you can. I do not believe you will be able to update non-whitelisted apps once you upgrade (haven't tried though).

True.
We can not update nor install more apps we want AFTER flashing newer fw.
Whitelist (tidal, qobuz...) are ok to update but just those apps.
Apps that not whitelist item work flawlessly but no more update.
In my case UI display all installed apps on latest fw (so other launcher is optinal).

How does SP1000/m compare to the SE200?
