I did some serious thinking before deciding on which DAP to buy. I had the occasion to get to know some of the A&K products in a shop and was simple overwhelmed by the quality of the high-res files I could try. So A&K it would be, and yes I am satisfied. However some remarks have to be made: if you are a Mac user, transferring files is not so straightforward as you would think and I have noticed that driving my Beyerdynamic T1 headphones, this stretches the amp to its limit.
