The New iRiver AK100: A High-End DAP - Page 278

post #4156 of 8671

Received my RAWK100 just today. Everything seemed fine so far except for the volume knob that seems a bit loose. It rattles a bit when the device is shaken. Is this what you guys have too?

Seems sketchy for a device that costs that much...

It's been designed with a little bit of give either way, to prevent it being too easy to accidently increase or decrease the volume when it's in your pocket

mine doesn't rattle, but yes it doesn't fit flush with the rest of the unit, i think its there so it wouldn't

bump and scratch the unit. You have to actually turn it too to change the volume more than one or two notch , so thats good i suppose

I just ordered a RWAK100 from Vinnie, can't wait!

 

Where can I buy a case for this in the U.S.?  Are there any options?

post #4162 of 8671

i think you have to get them from ebay as nobody actually distributes the cases

sorry for bringing this off topic back but...

 

i am listening to Barbara Streisand on RWAK with ''my Beloved EB50'' and can only say WoW... despite EB50 are not the last word in sonics perfection i find them so clean sounding that i can hear even subtle details.... of course single BA has limitations which are clearly felt on EB50 but but but.... i do not know how MF pulled this out but crossover implementation does magic, it gives good run to my TF10 and Klipsch x10 in terms of clarity and detailing... of course i miss some meatier sound and all these huha sonics but concentrating on music i find EB50 being a very honest revealing IEM which neither adds nor removes anything... so if music sounds great it will sound so too through EB50 and if recording is bad it will sound bad through EB.

 

and RWAK sings with EB50 to my big surprise because i was not expecting this to happenL3000.gif

Yes. The volume control knob is attached to a small shaft. It has a small set screw and is actually very well made. A good idea on how they made it as you can't stress the actual electronics. I wondered to until I took mine apart.

This is a better representative of the colour of the Hong Kong limited edition AK100.....rather than the earlier pictures
