The New iRiver AK100: A High-End DAP - Page 247

post #3691 of 8363

No gapless? Too bad. I don't have a problem with 1.32 and it scans very fast. Today I put in two cards with new music on them, one 64gb and the other totally loaded with Grateful Dead and for some reason it didn't even scan. It booted up and there was the music. I thought I would have to do a manual scan since the AK didn't seem to do one but they are all there. Maybe it is because of my bypass of the 22ohm resistors. :^)

I dont think they will ever have a true gapless, they will just reduce the buffer time. If it is hardware restricted (based on what I have read) I dont know how would they eliminate that problem without replacing the hardware causing the issue.

I had the same issue till I noticed that some FLACs from HDtracks are numbered 1,2,3,4....10,11,12 etc.

I renamed (renumbered) them as 01,02,03 etc. and now everything is ok.

I installed 1.33 firmware, flew home on a 6.5 hour flight. I was listening to HD music for 6 hours. The battery life was better then my flight out, but my AK100 did get warm too. I noticed that the two 64Gb and the 32Gb storage uploaded music faster and library scan is much faster. Anyone read 6 moons review on the AK100?

I just wanted to share publicly here that a message containing a link to Tyll Hertsens article on Inner Fidelity on output impedance that I posted on Astell & Kern's AK100 Facebook page got censored (deleted in fact) and my publication rights there have been revoked (I suppose that is equal to banned; I still "like" the page, but can't post anything nor comment).

Well there is freedom of speech and then there is we will choose what we want you to say.

Then why make a page public with open posting and commentary when you're not prepared to face criticism ?

Looks like somebody posted the link again. Each and every owner of AK100 should do that sooner or later.

They want good words, not bad. :^)

Did the firmware upgrade to 1.3.3 cause songs to skip randomly? Does the 1.3.0 have this problem?

It seems to have fixed the issue where the AK100 would suddenly lose (show as empty) the files on a mSD card until one power cycles. Seems to fit their description on makin the mSD more stable. I used to have this issue happen frequently and it has now not happened since I upgraded to 1.33.

AK100 as all-in-one source?

 

Have you guys tried using Mini-toslink cable?

 

Does it work when connected to external DAC like Bifrost?

 

Will it work when connected to Anaconda? Will it act as pure transport if sound will be feed to Anaconda thru Mini-Toslink and Ananconda's DAC will be used instead of the internal one (though they have same DAC)

I have used the toslink and it works fine. Used it with various optical in dacs and as that, it is a good source.
