Dear just-max, the question is classic - when will it appear on the shelves of our stores?

Rep: (34)
I join the previous question about the dates of appearance on our shelves. Tradein on the PCT Keyuan, as I understand it, is not worth the wait?

Will there be at least one demo phone all over Moscow this time?

Rep: (5)
I have a question on the audio part - the presence of an audio chip and an amplifier is indicated, I did not find information on them. Will there be a difference from KEYone in sound?

I have a question on the audio part - the presence of an audio chip and an amplifier is indicated, I did not find information on them. Will there be a difference from KEYone in sound?

According to the DAC, if I understood correctly:
AK4376 is intended for portable equipment, which is also very good: the dynamic range is 125 dB, the distortion is -106 dB. The amplifier operates in class G and delivers 25 mV to a 32-ohm load. The chip supports 32 bit / 384 kHz parameters, there is no DSD, but its presence is more of a beautiful sign for a portable than a real advantage.

Asahi Kasei Actually, this is a large Japanese corporation with a chemical past, in which we are interested in the Asahi Kasei Microdevises division. AKM DACs cannot be called just beginners, but for a long time among audiophiles they were in the shadow of Burr-Brown and Cirrus Logic. And that was not fair. After all, not only DACs, but also analog-to-digital converters from Asahi Kasei were quite decent and were actively used in high-end Pro technology. In the 90s, AKM chips were even in the Sony Playstation, which, by the way, turned out to be a very successful audio source.

I think that in the fall of 2018 infa will appear intelligible. And by the spring of next year it will be possible to think about buying.
So, turn on the shredder. )

It will be necessary just to wait a bit, I did not take the keyuan either at the start, because of the price. I licked at it, but I went with a passport. Cheaper took

* dyadya_vita , they and the first still sell for 42, I found another store at 10k cheaper.

Hope for the price of about 45-50k collapsed.
And I wanted to change my old man ...

So, let's go in order.
K2 plans to launch in mid-August, but I can hardly realistically say this, probably September. In our region, only the black one and only 128 GB version will be sold officially. In view of this, K1 will be bronze, it will be the way instead of the second keyboard maker (which I personally find useless given its hardware design trimmed, K1 bronz will look better). Bronze should arrive in August (in this case, more than realistic, since all materials on it are ready).
For audio components (D / A converter and amplifier) ​​in K2, I know where they come from. In K1 there is no discrete audio chip as well as an amplifier, there only an audyushka integrated into the chip works for everything about everything.

Posted 06/06/2018 12:17 PM:

I don’t have any information on the trade-in, I think it can be considered equal to the fact that it doesn’t exist.

If you want to see live in Moscow, you can come to our office, of. the presentation was already, now there is nothing to hide. True, I now have only silver 64 gig single and a Cyrillic layout wrong.

p. The Russian layout will be grayed out (the ones in the qwerty version are numbers and symbols), and not red as it was in K1. Once again - the layout is NOT FINAL.

* Reverses,
local serovozy and K1 is remembered at the start of thousands of 60 each vparivali, it makes no sense to focus on this price. As soon as information appeared about the office. With supplies and an approximate price tag for the PCT version, they quickly revised their pricing policy ...

Sadness is the lack of silver with normal iron. Will wait.

Rep: (5)
The audio part is still great news, but the sound in K1 is painfully dull. If you can also in the photo (in K1, this is also very bad), then the transition to K2 does not seem so useless. As they say, we will wait)

* just-max,
Compared the sound of the speakers K1 and K2? It became better?

Rep: (5)
Yes, it’s a pity that silver will not be ((although it’s certainly a good idea that we are officially planning to bring it officially. In the camera, the lack of optostab was disappointing, but the presence of a DAC is, on the contrary, really pleased, but the sound of KEYone is not very good. In general, if anyone I haven’t bought KEYone yet, now I definitely need to take key2, but I’ll sit on silver KEYone and there, you see, and key3 will appear, if of course TCL’s keyboard idea doesn’t be bent .. Well, or at least the key2 of a different color to us will come))

sorrow, I wanted to myself silver.

there is pure commerce, there is no sense to carry K2 with 64GB (silver dvuhsimochnye exist only in such a memory config), since there will be K1 bronze with 4/64 memory and the difference between them will not be so much existing for many, so they decided to K2 immediately maximum configuration to drive, and she only in black. I, too, more like silver looks that K1 that K2. But, black is also nothing. =)

* zooldd,
To be honest, I and K1 were completely satisfied, so I didn’t do comparative tests, I didn’t do it before, in specs I read that the config, which costs up to 3.6 W, can pump power, in real tests the speaker is up to 2, 8 watts swing at K2. In models where there is usually no amplifier in the region of 1 W of power, but K1 does not have such detailed technical equipment, so I won’t take it for sure.

Ah there it is, I didn’t know this, but it didn’t make it any easier)))
Initially, I wanted a cavean, while the forum was already smoking here and Kay2 was announced.
And if you buy silver from behind the Kay2 hillock, will you be able to change the clave in Moscow time or make an engraving with Russian letters? Will the officials provide such a service?
