    Currently owned dacs/daps/amps/headphones: LG V10, Sandisk SansaClip Sport, Fiio E6, Meze 99 Classics, Hifiman HE4xx, Hifiman RE400

    I live in London, Ontario, Canada. I haven't done any reviews but I have a great understanding of audio and have no problem communicating my thoughts on soundstage, imaging, frequency response including minor details like specific frequency ranges, PRaT etc. in english. I am also quite good with my english skills and can write the review in a very organised manner, and perhaps also do a video review for YouTube and/or other websites.

    why does it only have Bluetooth 4.1? I thought it has 5.0? or at least 4.2...does it support also AAC next to APT-x?

    Also why didn’t you use the new AK 4493 which is the successor of AK 4490 or the AK 4495 or AK4497?
