Lotoo PAW 6000 Reference Grade Portable Audio Player
One of the best players under 2k , AKM chip implementation is fantastic , sound awesome . Battery life is impressive 14h + normal use . Works really fast .
I love this player. This is a dream come true.
Beautiful reproduction of the music, no coloration or emphasis. Absolutely black background. If you hear any noise, it's in the recording. The operation is clean, fast, and straightforward. There is no better player if your primary concern is the playback of your collection.
What can I say, it sounds just like the A01 motherboard for Cayin N6ii, just not as warm; but it's much, much, much faster in every aspect. I know many may be turned down by the fact that Lotoo is still putting a mere AKM4493 Dac chip in their device, while the trend nowadays is for upper-mid tier DAPs to cram in 2 of the newest DAC chips available such as the ESS9038 or AKM4499, or AKM4497 at the very worst. But I assure you that Lotoo has proven yet again, that they can challenge other TOTL DAPs boasting the newest hardware, and show that the paw series is capable of offering the same, if not better, sonic performance than their "more advanced" competitors.
With that being sound, if you're looking for something exciting and fun sounding, the Lotoo products are not really for you. Though the p6k is slightly less analytical than its big brother, it's still inherently a DAP with reference (flat) tuning, meaning that you won't be getting a resounding boost in the bass or splendid sparkle in the treble. If you're looking for a balanced-sounding DAP to listen to all your locally-stored music, definitely give the Paw 6000 a try.
