yes kz fucked up and put drivers that were not used or subliminaly used but rewiwers that could hear trebble said trebble was really bad (that is also what i heard) and cheapaudioman said it was greatDid you read the controversy between crinacle and kz about that "collaboration"?
He did a similar thing with the best speaker under $200 shootout reviews. I don’t remember exactly but I know sometimes he picked the JBL A130s and an another the Emotiva B1+.Well, no idea about this amp as I'll never buy it but CAM has also trashed this DAC:
So AKM sucks?
So a bit later he loves this AKM DAC:
Not really that consistent.
He claims the first AKM DAC has problems in the treble but this is likely because he listens through these cheapo Sony speakers...which has elevated treble:
This is a review and detailed measurements of the Sony SS-CS5 3-way bookshelf speaker. Yes, you read that right. It is a 3-way speaker with a mid-range driver in a space where 99% of speakers are 2-way. I purchased it from Amazon for US $149. Bad for me but for those of you shopping for...www.audiosciencereview.com
I noticed right away the volume knob doesn't go down past 8 o clock, and the bass and treble to 8 o clock on the left and 6 o clock on the right. Tried to pull them off but they wouldn't budge. Didn't want to pull too hard. Here everyting to the left first, then everything to the right.I think the issue is that these knobs are not accurate, so 12 o'clock position does not give you neutral sound.
So far, no test of equipment has shown an audible improvement when used with an alternative - supposed low noise - power supply. If you tested sighted, the most likely explanation would be cognitive biases being at play.
Even if you tested blind - if you didn't carefully level match the before/after, then all bets are off.

Funny you should say that as I did treat myself to an A07 Pro hasn't arrived yet. It will be interesting to see how the A07 Pro compares to the basic A07 - I still have an A07.I wouldn't. In fact i would get the new A07 Pro and if you do let us know what you think.
At the risk of some common felt disappointment to you I have just read that the rca output on the A07 Pro is sub par to the original standard A07 but the bluetooth is supposed to be outstanding...well at best on the same scale of quality as the standard A07 RCA output. Suffice to say if the A07 Pro does disappoint then you could always return it and maybe grab the newly revised version of the Fosi Audio TB10D. The second revision of that amp has got rave reviews from the CheapAudioMan on Youtube.Funny you should say that as I did treat myself to an A07 Pro hasn't arrived yet.
