If on low model of questions especially is not present, more than a worthy product, even despite the price. That on high, actually a main point - and what exactly is given by an overpayment?

Two last expensive  AKM. Convenience of last version Android. The price for a top at them always was such. Position as a product not for all. There is such theory in economy that it is necessary to have all spectrum of price lists then the profit is maximum.

is not present, I not against big prices if is for what to pay. But here it is serious, yet I do not see except as for the version of OS and for the screen - for what to pay?  how much I see, is not worse at low , the audiopath too appeared a little but better. It not from desire  there or something similar - I really look narrowly at these players. But here it is serious, as on me Kann it is more interesting at all without paying attention to the price though the shape factor of cheaper model is less convenient for carrying in clothes.

Essence in the graphic interface on Android and ready support of the modern multinuclear processors, ready support USB3.0 and the advanced management of a power supply system. Remaining players not on Android generally, and on  Linux with the singularities. Someone, for example, had a claim that a Cyrillic font not so beautiful, or that translation into Russian strange. Android gives ready normal localization on 200 languages. It at least its plus. There are also other pluses. Further, the interface more friendly and customary. Updates more often. Updates with  versions there was already decent amount, is frequent with new functions. That is developers can concentrate not on the bicycle invention, and on the additional possibilities connected to a sound.

SP1000 - Perfectly sounds. Really very good sound.
KANN - a certain experiment, and or someone decided to make in it an "especial" sound or stupidly underestimated quality through not chopped off SSRC. Good sounding from it only in mode USB.

Did not understand, to tell the truth. From article:
Harmonic distortions + noise,  (A) -98,7 it is good
And
Harmonic distortions + noise,  (A) -96,1 it is excellent
It for linear and  outputs. By what principle "Perfectly" also are "well defined?

If it is fair, I saw a label from Germans on release 7, and there there were fantastic digits - from 0,1 ohm. But here Ken too  3 ohm for 6 and 6 ohm for 6S. Probably, they something  not so. I take away words reversely sad

More likely  a metal ingot.
Mass - the main lack of the given player, as , besides the price, naturally.
To the Player what for the display in 5 inches and 8 nuclear percents??!!
For convenience of control and beauty.
Interface Ultimy is sharpened to indecently high ergonomics, intuitive clearness and responsiveness of the interface (the screen menu fulfills almost instantly and smoothly).
The contribution of the powerful processor to functionality of the user interface is obvious.
+ At playing of heavy files (for example, DSD and DXD formats) also there is a store on productivity that, taking into account basing of shell program of a player on  Android, does not lead to possible impairments on tonal quality.

KANN - a certain experiment, and or someone decided to make in it an "especial" sound or stupidly underestimated quality through not chopped off SSRC. Good sounding from it only in mode USB.
Sounds KANN obviously  in comparison with Ultimoj, despite the powerful amplifier.
At Ultimy the scene obviously is wider, is deeper (and ) a bass and , more detailed on microdynamics even in comparison with AK380 (here, actually, the main psychological vau-effect of the given device), as a whole player sounding it is possible to describe high frequency as simulation as much as possible approached to a natural sound.
That corresponds to an ideal most important task find fault-end audio equipment: to modeling at playback of records of a sound field which the observer at observance of some boundary conditions cannot distinguish from reference (real, immediately served by the primary source).
Listened both on AKG3003 (an intrachannel hybrid 2+1) and on Astell&Kern AK T8iE MkII (intrachannel dynamic Tesla) from not balance output.
Under impression.
PS in plans to take a balance cable to T8iE and to estimate a difference.

In the review the mentioned below construction looks strange:

Sounding of player Kann is approximately in the middle between leader SP1000 and models of initial level. that is the player produces a good dynamical sound, without slackness, on quality it is better, than at AK380 without the amplifier.

Differently "average temperature on hospital, including a mortuary".
But in a following sentence takes place to be is subjective-estimate positioning KANN actually in quality "breathing in a nape" to the former leader from AK that also  wink
It is more logical to import the simple proof not to attack a throat to an authoring song and authoring judgement - to remove the first part  ballet and to edit an introductory part of the remained sentence.

To the one who taught less lessons, I want to remind a little as the pledged word is correctly written and that it means.

In my opinion, you were pathosly tired out. smile The criterion here can be only one: the sound either is pleasant, or it is not pleasant. SP1000 very much it is pleasant. With this player it would be desirable to listen to music. Remaining not so it is important.

Like as one of pluses of players always declared absence of stray noise/hindrances from accompanying electro-radio of details. Here pushed powerful percents as that :confused:

It is possible not to worry about noise. Under passport 120  a signal/noise. On our measurements 118  at 1Vrms. Noise is not a problem of the modern devices.

Long time was considered that in the computer the powerful videocard and the processor send invisible space rays. And the sound from it becomes awful, it is impossible to listen. But it did not prove to be true yet. You put instead of the integrated sound a normal sound card (with 4-layer modern design, with filters on a supply) and no noises are present. In players the processor with the videocard less powerful, and a supply goes from a battery.
