A vastly overpriced DAP with a sound not necessarily better than its younger siblings (100II or Jr).
So better to get the 100ii than the 120ii??
$600 100ii or $1200 120ii, both used. which is the better buy??
I'm leaning towards the 120ii because of the dual amps and extra oomp on balanced! also think its a little future proof, atleast for me...
No experience with balanced out. For the best price/performance, go for 100II. I personally think 100II>120II. Bob Katz at innerfidelity thinks 100II falls behind slightly.
I have both and I use them mostly with balanced out direct into CIEMs. It's hard for me to tell the difference, honestly. I won't say that there's none, but it's not the "smack in the forehead I coulda had a V8" kind of thing.
Thanks guys! Probably will get the used 100ii and save the rest!
What did you end up getting? Sorry I am late to the game. I owned both.
Got the ak100ii, for a good deal on hf!! And it's awesome. I'm loving it so far!
It is a good choice. The sound signatures are real similar. I have always said there is something about the 100ii that makes it an easier listen for long listening sessions.
