You can pay less and get a better functioning, more powerful and better sounding player. No software updates are available for this and haven't been for a long time.
AudioJetCowon Plenue M2, FiiO X5III, Cayin I5 all piss all over A&K (not just this model ) at lower prices with regular updates. FiiO X5III does require a lot of love but sounds astonishing. Of the 3 I've mentioned Cowon is the most complete and possibly the best sounding and hitch free. I own all players mentioned as well as AK Jr and AK 70 and I can tell you I would not spend another penny on A & K. That brand literaly does not have customer service, nor any care for their customers. Example, from day 1 AK 70 was released with non functioning EQ and all these years later never received update for a non functioning EQ.
SoundzHave you ever used the sp1000? I am beyond positive that none of the players that you mentioned above come close to it in build or sound quality. Not to mention the UI.
SaleenjimHave you check the price of that thing?
SoundzYes I own one after playing the upgrade game I finally gave in and could not be happier. It sounds great I use it when I travel with my campfire Solaris or noble Khan. Beat sound I have heard while on the go. It still can't beat my speaker setup though maybe one day.
