    879F7038-8E70-48FF-BA97-E6511EDE5EA1.jpeg I am currently using the AK SR15. But if money allows, I would get the AK SP100m gold edition. It’s looks sleek and relatively small in size :)

    So you actually took my advice and stepped up to a dedicated player? I guess I am right once in a blue moon. :v:

    I am using my iPhone XS almost exclusive these days. Pairing it with a variety of toys like the aforementioned ES100, Oppo HA-2SE and Hugo. I think it sounds phenomenal.

    A question for you AK guys...I’ve had an AK100ii for a number of years and it just sounds dull and flat. I was hoping the Khans might be what it was waiting for but it still sounds very dull. I realize it’s closer to entry level, but is this particular AK known for “blah” sound? I’ve always wondered if I got a dud or if it’s par for the course.

    If by dull you mean flat I guess so.... personally I wouldn't call a flat sound signature dull, I hate warm DAPs

    That was my first AK player, never found it dull by any means. I have always felt going up the ladder in the AK line does produce better sound, it can be small steps up to decent depending on which model you move up to. Its also possible the AK sound just isn't your cup of tea.

    wonder which your favorite portable source with the khan, whether a dap or a dac/amp

    I had a similar experience with the AK120, but I soon used it as a digital transport only and paired it with (first) the Chord Hugo and then the Chord Mojo. This was a good set up, but when 400Gb SD cards dropped and I was able to fit all my music on one card it was a no brainer to add Poly to the Mojo and dump the AK120 for good. The screen size and UI on the AK120 were awful, but if memory serves they moved to Android based OS for subsequent DAPs.

    The Khans sound phenomenal with the Mojo/Ploy pairing.

    Glad to hear you have a set up you really love, that's what matters to me, is helping people with my knowledge. I don't know everything, but I sure try with what I do know.

    Thinking about ordering a pair of wood Katanas or Khans. The pictures I’ve seen are just so gorgeous. Is there any downside to the wood (besides time and cost)? Are they heavier and so more uncomfortable? Harder to adjust fit if that’s necessary?

    Don't worry about anything except getting a look you really like.

    Comfort is more important than looks.

    If I had to order a set of pink and chartreuse iems to get the most comfort, that’s what I’d do!

    I just want to make sure that wood isn’t any less comfy than acrylic, because weight.

    Comfort is going to come from it being a proper fit, nothing else really matters. My K10 have reef coral and watch parts. That's the beauty of Noble, you can have both.
