The New iRiver AK100: A High-End DAP - Page 228

Yes I also had scan issues, it froze for me for a while and for some reason it just refused to skip the tutorial screen. I reset it manually twice and it finally worked.

Try a different browser. That made a difference for me.

I think I had a similar problem getting stuck with either the tutorial or language screens.  I remember using the hardware play button and that seemed to move me somewhere else.

Any HD700 owners here care to talk about the pairing with the AK100 would be greatly appreciate. 

post #3410 of 8618

Have anyone found the problem when turn on AK100 and there is no data in the sd cards?

I found this issue sometimes and have to turn it off and on again, then it would read data correctly.

post #3411 of 8618

Yes, known issue, both on the AK100 itself, and via USB occasionally, and you found the workaround already.

post #3412 of 8618

So here are my preference with AK100 based on the things I own. Ranking from best to worst synergy:

 

1-CK100PRO : Best pairing to my ears. CK100PRO treble is normally explained as borderline sibilant to hot on times but on AK100 for some strange reason it never went over-board. It presented the treble the way it is mastered. For example on gotye making mirror album which I believe is one treble happy CD, the treble at times could be harsh on CK100PRO simply because that how it is recorded. 

 

2-ACS T15: Before pairing AK100 with CK100PRO I was convinced this was the best synergy there could be among my IEM. It was because of this pairing tha I decided to keep the AK100 I was lost in music. It lacks the detail and resolution and microdetails that CK100PRO has. To me that is not a bad thing at all in fact I find myself using this with the AK100 as it is simply more forgiving. With this pair you will be listening to music more than to the faults of the mastering. 

 

3-ES10: One word to describe this is warm. Really enjoyable for eletronic music and timber and cello, double bass. 

 

 

4-FA-003Ti/ER4S: To my ears ER4S and FA-00Tio paired with AK100 was able to maintain its famous accurate quality however I felt that treble was more present. I felt what with a better beefy amp section on AK100 I would easily place this as my number one but than again I tend to be bias towards ER4S.

 

For the rest of my IEM feel free to ask me however my view is they were not worth mentioning.

This has also been done with the DX100. Did you have any problems with the 128 being read?  Did you also have another card in the other slot at the same time?

Nope, just as any other card.

It also worked with SanDisk 64Gb microSDXC in another slot.

So theoretically you can have 320 gigs with two cards and internal memory, right?

Theoretically you can have just about 550gbs- the largest sd cards are 256 gbs + 32gb onboard memory.

daseinpdx,

 

I am having a similar problem. With firmware version 1.30 I can perform a manual scan, and then browse by album, artist, and genre. I cannot however browse by song. The device indicates no songs were found. I could previously browse by song before upgrading to firmware version 1.32 and then downgrading back to version 1.30. With firmware version 1.32 on the device, I could only browse by artist, and then the number of songs for each artist is very suspect. There did not seem to be enough songs indicated for each artist. 

 

My library is all FLAC files that were ripped by WinAmp. The exception being the 5 high resolution samples provided with the device. I copy the files using a card reader and Windows Explorer. I do not use iriver plus 4. 

 

I have over 25gig of internal storage free, and I am using 2x64gig Sandisk cards with about 1.5gig of storage free on each.

 

I think I may hold off until a new firmware version is released. I think this version may have issues. If anyone finds a solution to this issue, when using firmware version 1.32, I would be most interested.

P.S. I would find it interesting to know how many others are experiencing similar issues with firmware version 1.32.

I tried a few things with both the 1.30 and 1.32 firmware.  I copied the database and tried to use it in 1.32.  No go.  Does not work.  I also deleted the database file and tried a completely clean scan.  Also does not work.  So, I have not been able to find a solution to the issues with 1.32.  

 

Interestingly, I noticed that the AK did create a new database file and it was the same size as the original one.  This suggests that the scan might have actually been successful.  The problem might be in reading and accessing the file.

 

When I went back to 1.30, I pasted copies of the original database files back into the system folder.   Surprisingly, it worked.   I didn't have to rescan.  That appears to be good news in that we should be able to easily restore a database at least for the same firmware version.

post #3420 of 8618

It appears I spoke too soon.  After using the player after restoring the database, it turns out that only the Artist list is populated.   Everything is else is missing.  I guess this means that the database file is only a source file and that indexing must be done elsewhere.  Maybe that is partly why it can be slow to navigate.  In any case, restoring the database does not appear to be an option after all.  Too bad.
