I am not sure if I want to try the Sony Zx1 or not but the very important thing that made me pull the trigger on the Ak120 is the USB DAC function. I keep my fingers crossed.

Yeah, the DAC function might be the edge that AK has over it's competitions.

This one will be a real competitor to AK120. Does anyone know its DAC and battery life?

I chose uber because I never heard it before.

 
My set up at workplace...
It helps to inspire [my work] and energize over my entire workday.  Excellent company.  Investment well justified.
 
Cheers

My 1P2 + Uber + Silver/Gold cable was delivered today so this work day can't end soon enough. Haven't been this excited to go home in awhile. I ended up ordering the BTG Audio Starlight cable as well just incase these two cables aren't gonna cut it while moving about. Thanks Gavin for the quick turnaround time and excellent service all around.

Tried the BTG before not even in the same league with the silver cable :) Congratz for the new 1p2. It is 1 of the best iems I have ever heard.

Thanks midnightwalker. I assume the same regarding the BTG cable but I know he makes ergonomic cables and love his work and it's an inexpensive alternative for on the go.

As for the 1P2, listened for a little while and the difference between silver/gold and uber cable is very apparent. Silver cable is much brighter and uber tames that down but the added dimensionality is stunning. I'm immediately happy with my purchase and look forward to this weekend. On the burn station they go for now.

Does the 1plus2 "hiss" when connected to the ALO Rx MK3-B+ amp? Also, I'm not sure if I should order a "balanced" termination for whatever cable I'd decide to get with it (probably the gold+silver cable), especially if the 1plus2 hisses with the Rx MK3.
 
With a regular single-ended 1/8'' mini termination, I could probably add an impedance adapter (75ohm) to reduce the hiss with the Rx MK3-B+, but I don't know if it'll change the 1plus2's frequency response for the worse.

The 1plus2 is not self powered and thus would not hiss! Your amp does.

The MK3 produces hiss with ALL iems I tried. The hiss is much louder than the Theorem produces.
