Previously I was using AK 320 and AK SE 100,thought of going to flagship chose SP 2000.though little hefty easy to hold.I was using it with Campfire Andromeda with balanced Litz cable.what an excellent sound stage and transparency.i have lot of lot of collections of Ilayaraja and A R Rahman songs in AIFF format,everything sounds new it does exactly what musicians tend to deliver.it has very wide sound stage even at low volumes.i have tried using it with fiio fh7 and AK Diana both performed well all with balanced cables.
Really it's an ultimate player.Thanks to Salim HPZ for guiding me.when I asked about SP 2000 he said it's the end game and I realised that after listening to it.Thanks to HPZ
