The New iRiver AK100: A High-End DAP - Page 120

Did you try it yet toads? I'm still preferring the sound by quite a bit on FLAT EQ ;). Overall more detailed and controlled. The fatigue I was talking about on no EQ could very well lie within the upper mids lower treble region where I am extremely sensitive to....

Hour break? ;) sounds nice lol. Then again I'd rather have shorter breaks for less time at work :P.

If you load up a 2 64gb micro sd cards on this, would it be a b*tch to scroll from an artist/album in the "A" section to an artist/album in the "Z" section, or is there a way to scroll quickly on this thing sort of like how an ipod classic recognizes faster rotations on the wheel or like how the ipod touch allows you to hit a letter on the right hand side of the screen to get to all artists/albums starting with that letter?

 

thanks in advance,

Chris

Actually, there is a little scroll bar that allows you to accelerate through the list pretty quickly.  It is like the scrolling tabs on android touch screen phones.  It is a little imprecise and twitchy though.  I find myself jumping past the music I want. Difficult to just do with one hand too.  It is there though.  Not a big issue.  I haven't tried it with 2 64 cards - just one.

 

It does take a long time time to do a library scan through just one 64gb card.  I can only imagine how long it would take to scan two of them.

Interesting i noticed that there was a difference in sound with a flat eq as opposed to eq off too.  I do agree that it is a little less fatiguing with the eq on.  Too much treble for me to with the volume turned up.

Thanks for the info! 


Regarding the library scan- that only happens when the device is turned off/on right?

Only when you add new music.

Edit: I should say that's with the built in memory. Not sure on microsd, haven't expanded to that yet. Maybe next week.

Depends on how you set it. On auto scan it scans on start up. Initial scan of 2x64gig takes a while; maybe 10 min or so. Subsequent scans are fast.

You can also turn off scanning and just browse the card via the file reader.

To clarify further: With auto-scan turned off, there is still a manual "Scan Now" button you can use anytime. You can also delete the whole database file(s) in case of problems, in which case the next scan will of course take as long as an initial one.

Can anyone help me with getting playlists to work on this unit! lol. That is one pet-peeve I want fixed. The earlier poster who figured it out hasn't responded :P.

Yep looks like it's not only me then :).

 

On a plus note what I really like about this player is something I've been bitching to ibasso from the start. The ability to change volume without the screen on. You can even change the tracks and pause without the screen on. I give iRiver big props for that as that greatly extends batter life. I also like when you pull the IEM from the HO it will automatically stop playing music which will greatly conserve battery life. Just a few niggles here and there and they would have a perfect portable DAP for Sensitive IEMs in mind :). I did email them regarding playlist and gapeless support and did get a response. So hopefully they will fix these issues.

To reset hold up on the left edge and the power button for about 10 seconds
