If you don't like the sound, you can then decide whether to return the ak or send it in for a mod.


This...why need someone else to tell you what sounds good. Trust your ears :)

Bought a RWAK100 a few days ago and loving it. Many of my previous prejudices concerning the AK100 (unmodded) were overthrown after listening to the RWAK100. In short, I like the RWAK100. It sounds smooth just as the AK100 yet obviously cleaner in tonality. It also has better control driving the Sony Z1000 and some low-impedance IEMs (K3003, FI-BA-SS etc.) to my ears.

 

I also find its Line Output better than my ODAC. The ODAC sounds stiff and lifeless comparing to the RWAK100. The SR-009 is a highly record-quality-revealing headphone, and ODAC is utterly un-listenable feeding the SRM-727A when I try to listen to Pop music; however, the RWAK100 has given me many surprises so far. Right now my semi-desktop setup is using the RWAK100 feeding the 727A driving SR-009. bigsmile_face.gif

My unit is not booting after I left it to charge overnight.I tried booting when it is plugged into the main and hard reboot.

Can anyone help? Not sure if iRiver can replace it as mine is the silver model which I asked someone to help me buy from Japan. confused_face.gif

Did you flashed it with "Listrid Firmware"?
 

post #6725 of 8722

Yes Listrid 2.0. The unit was off when I left it to charge

It could be fixed, I'll ask on the russian forum to help you.

Not yet, we are all waiting for Listrid, but he is busy on his work.

Just got my AK100 in the mail yesterday. Can someone send me a working link to listrid 2.0? I tried flashing the dropbox file, no dice. It stayed at the stock firmware somehow. Also these naver links aren't working for me.

Keep in mind that listrid firmware uses the start screen of your last official firmware. For instance, it will say 1.33 at the start even when you have successfully installed listrid. You have to go by what features are there.

EDIT: Wow. I never actually noticed that little nut in the bottom right corner of the 'now playing' screen. Should've done the tutorial. I probably flashed Listrid correctly 6 times without knowing it.
