Problem goes away after scan... loving this speedier UI. I am on ak100-111is, the sound seems a bit better.

normally i am too conservative about updating any firmware but this time it sounds just soooo tempting, have patch downloaded but not installed yet :-)

 

Gintaras,

 

As a standalone player I prefer the Russian..fuller and richer sounding, with a pronounced improvement in depth perception, width has taken a little hit though

 

Amped.....will PM you tomorrow regarding amps!

Dude, I sure hope you're not expecting me to put this firmware on both the MS-AK100 & RWAK100 for tomorrow's meet :p. I intended to do it after the meet. Or if you do, then I can too.

Put it in at least one, just for the UI is well worth it...and so much speedier than on the DX100 to do! 3 minutes max!!!

The new firmware fixed the language problems on mine. Now all the chinese and japanese characters are showing up correctly!

Really loving this.

Well if it's just a UI and gapless change, I would have done it. Unfortunately tomorrow we're actually doing a RWAK100, MS-AK100, AK120, DX100, HM-901 test at Fujiya. So if this firmware is going to change the RWAK100 & MS-AK100 signature, it's kinda altering the test plan.

Ok Anak, but after test would you mind torturing your RWAK with this firmware upgrade? redface.gifwink_face.gif

I have a question about shuffle mode.  I do not have any cards in mine yet, just internal storage.  Most of the time I listen in shuffle mode.  I think I have about 300 songs on my RWAK.  What seems odd to me is it seems like a limited number of songs (say 30 to 40) are shuffling over and over on separate days and the rest of the songs don't get shuffled.  One day last week I went jogging and listened to about 12 songs.  Two days later I went out to jog and the same exact songs were shuffling over again!  Any ideas on how to get it to REALLY shuffle?
