We shall see if they comply. I'm thinking they HAVE measured it and the results were not what they expected.

I know about the out put impedance of AK100 but can some brave soul connect the XBA-4 to this unit and see how it sounds?

Thing about this product is iriver website is going to start selling MQS sound files which is original studio recording. 0% compression. and the 24bit dac has just that AMAZING ability to read it off beautifully.

I just don't see iriver following through with much at this point. Certainly not that, or to much extent anyway.

It can't read off anything beautifully if it's a flawed device,...

If money is no object, grab 2 Lexar 256GB SD cards with this puppy and you'll finally have a worthy DAP.

That's a lot of storage there I think most people would settle down with 64gb :P

I could be missing something here but how do you intend to squeeze in these SD cards into the AK100's MicroSD slot?

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.

Did iRiver interview those engineers on their product, or MP3 vs higher resolution formats? Bit confused.

$700 is not a good price, and not bad.
