Ak240SS It is a great little player! and i'm really happy with it's audio quality. I definitely would recommend it even now to anybody. Especially if what I've read about new larger battery replacement giving 12hr playback is true. Forget ak380 and sp1000.
I love this little device.

What battery are you referring to and where can I get it? I NEED 12 hours playback on my AK240SS !! :wink:

The original AK240 was my original purchase that set me off on the this incredible high-end DAP journey. I remember so many people had said at the time “there’s no need for a music-only player, today’s phones can do it all!”

holy fawk. The Focal Utopia off of my old AK240 dap sounds amazing. No idea how I didnt pull this old dap out before from storage.

Not even the balanced out. Driver is behaving perfectly, no early physical baffle bass clipping. Crazy amounts of detail and lots of imaging/seperation. Just some digital etch that some may or may not like. (good to me subjectively)

And this is currently off the single-end output. Not the 2.5mm Balanced port.
