The New iRiver AK100: A High-End DAP - Page 308

post #4606 of 8588
The Tera is brilliant but very picky in synergy. Even more so than the ak100. For instance my Miracles which are low impedance work with the ak100 but not the Tera. But when you find a good synergy is.juat the most natural player there is.

Another stellar combination........ AK100 and the Spiral Ear SE5

 

 

 

The AK100 is crazy good with top tier (C)IEMsnormal_smile%20.gif

How do you connect the AK100 to the JH-3A?

I can't tell anything about Predator but I use xDuoo XD-01 with unmodded AK100 and I am very satisfied :-)

 

Nevertheless, looking for advise - need IEM to stock AK100 (xDuoo use only at home), what would you suggest folks up to 200-300 bucks?

 

Thought about (preferably new stuff):

 - Westone 1

 - Westone UM1

 - AT CK100Pro

 - Yamaha EPH-100

 - AT CKW1000 ANV

 - Senns IE60

 

Another suggestions?

CK100pro seems to have good reviews.

This looks like a solid mini-mini, i saw 35800 yen, it surely cannot cost that much :S

Yeah, it's roughly HK$2,800 for that Oxygen-free Copper / silver plated cable. I could actually spend the same amount of money on the flagship WireWorld Platinum Eclipse with solid silver.

Indeed, I have seen solid core tri-wire mini-mini solid silver core go for 120 USD on ebay. That is way too much. I think what that cable is meant to do is increase bass which we tend to loss on AK100.

Vsonic GR07 Mk2 are surprisingly good with AK100 - they are 50ohm and have a very flat impedance curve so no real impact from the 22ohm output of the AK100.
