The New iRiver AK100: A High-End DAP - Page 442

post #6616 of 8722
FYI. Last night i was at the movies and shut down my ak. When the movie was over, i took it out of my pocket and noticed that it was still on the shutdown screen and getting hot. I had to do a reset to actually shut it down and then restart. It has only happened to me once, but I am worried about the potential damage to the device if it gets stuck running at the shutdown screen for an extended period of time.

In any case, be careful and be aware of this potential problem. I would recommend that everyone with an ak to actually verity that the device has shutdown before putting it away.

It has happened to me three times or more. I have noticed when the music is still playing, and I attempt to shut down the device, there is a higher chance for it to get stuck.

Have any of you ever interrupted the "See You Soon" screen & have it hang without a full shutdown? Mine's stuck at that screen at the moment. I you know of any secret button presses for a hard reset, please do share. Or I can just let the battery drain I guess.

I'm on the iRiver 2.01 firmware.

Edit: Pls ignore. Hard Reset seems to be middle & up button with power button.

I am also on Listrid fw and do not experience hangs.

I have a question for those knowledgeable souls on this forum. Is there a significant difference in using the optical out on the ak100 as opposed to the normal 1/8" jack? Most portable amps I come across do not have the optical-IN....why is this?

Wow so with this new unit they lowered the output impedance from 22 ohms? I wonder what the lowered it to? Honestly doesn't make sense to continue making AK100s with 22 ohms. It's really stupid honestly.

I'm on iRiver 2.0.1 and have never had a hang.
post #6627 of 8722
On iRiver 2.01, let the timer shutdown after X minutes of your choice. When it's due to shut down & you see the See You Again (or was it Soon?) screen, interrupt it by pressing any of the buttons. See if it proceeds on shutting down or hang there.

If I understand correctly this is just a mod not a new unit.  Not unlike RWAK or MSAK maybe this would be known as the AK100-B (for AK100 B-SPEC, their official name).

Disconnected Now Playing Screen

 

i had been running listridV2 with no problems.

I flashed iriver 2.0.1 to evaluate any sound differences.  After a short test with my standard test files, I decided I preferred listridV2.

I re-flashed listridV2, but I then experienced some occasions where the Now Playing Screen would freeze, while the player would advance to the next song.

I thought that this may be due to some 2.0.1 remnant, so I flashed 1.33, then back to listridV2.

I still experience occasions where the Now Playing Screen will freeze or become disconnected.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I have to say my RWAK100-S + Glacier gives me the best sound I have ever heard! Beats my DX100. But for some reason I get alot of distortion/clipping if I don´t use the eq (flat) with the 2.0.1 firmware.
