Try to download it with another browser.

post #6742 of 8364
iRiver's site often timeouts before the complete file downloads. I usually have to have three or four goes before I successfully get the whole file. If only they had a couple mirrors we could use.
post #6743 of 8364

Finally, it worked after the fifth download ..

 

Now trying the USB DAC, looks good so far.

 

thx

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

congrats, i have RWAK too and loving it.
