Bottom-line? The price for entry into Astell&Kern DAPs has gone up. This is what happens when innovation is accelerating. However, as much as I love the AK240 (and believe me, I love the AK240), the replacement players for the AK100 and AK120 only impress me when it comes to their sharp looks and feature set; I still prefer the sound of the original AK120 to the new replacement players. That being said … if I could improve the sonic performance of my classic AK120, I might not even need an AK240!
Enter Glove Audio, a new product and line from CEntrance, and the new A1 DAC/Amp for Astell&Kern AK100 and AK120 players…
WOW. This track on @SennheiserUSA #Urbanite headphones is wonderfully liquid. So fluid in fact, the bass is like HUGE, tightly wound rings of stacked water that DROPS and ripples OUT. I know - that makes NO sense - but its in my head. :)
Submitted my review of Eno @ Hyde’s latest, High Life - to Positive Feedback. This is NEXT. Thanks to Mr. Dave Clark as usual! Who discovered Avenger and “Bette Noire” - which became a proven sonic acid test!!!!
