Nothing is perfect & these earbuds are certainly a compromise. None the less, they are not too bright, not too boomy, not too recessed, & not too expensive. The sound is overall rich & smooth;...
The New iRiver AK100: A High-End DAP - Page 40post #586 of 812911/27/12 at 3:20pmQuote:We shall see if they comply. I'm thinking they HAVE measured it and the results were not what they expected.

I just don't see iriver following through with much at this point. Certainly not that, or to much extent anyway.post #590 of 812911/28/12 at 5:27ampost #591 of 812912/1/12 at 3:52ampost #592 of 812912/1/12 at 6:56amQuote:Originally Posted by turokrocks

That's a lot of storage there I think most people would settle down with 64gb :Ppost #596 of 812912/1/12 at 7:36amQuote:
I could be missing something here but how do you intend to squeeze in these SD cards into the AK100's MicroSD slot?post #597 of 812912/1/12 at 7:51am
Well, I just read through about half of the thread. I figured, when I first saw it, the output impedance must be a typo. I figured, ****, at http://www.astellnkern.com/ they claim to have a Wolison chip in it on the same chart where they list that spec, so there must be a few typos. Then I got to where it had been measured.
I mean, they're comparing it to CD players that are meant to be hooked up to floor standing size speakers. What a joke. I was really hopeful about this guy (I hadn't really been paying attention, but figured I would check the thread on it here when I saw the Engadget article.) I love the design, and the interface, and I was going to pick one up to go with the Unique Melody Merlins that I am planning to order here soon. So much for that idea. BAH.post #598 of 812912/1/12 at 7:57ampost #599 of 812912/1/12 at 8:04amQuote:
