The New iRiver AK100: A High-End DAP - Page 464

post #6946 of 8656

Mine is the modded AK100 pairing with TG334.

Under the official firmware 2.2, I really cannot tell the difference between ProEQ on and off.

Just like what the official says, the modded AK100 might not max out the the effects of ProEQ.

Any RWAK100 user hears a difference?

I'm intrigued now. I'll test and advise.

I know about changing the playlist format... Thing is...why is that necessary? What were they thinking with going with that format? I understand that you can edit the file with any text editor but for those of us who prefer our expensive toys to be relatively plug and play... It's an extra step... Which I translate as being a pain in the ass. Oh... And the iRiver music program sucks balls. Just my opinion. LOL

Has someone tried the Translucent 1plus2 with the AK100 / RWAK100 ?   I am intrigued about this "special" IEM !  Might be my solution to my need for a "very good NON-leaking headphone"

I will be trying it in a few weeks. Not sure if you can wait that long, but happy to share once I hear them.

Gintaras if I am not mistaking, he has both of the pieces.

I was thinking about the way to fix the 22Ohm issue for iRiver without hardware modification.

I think it could be possible to create a list of EQ presets for certain popular models of earphones/headphones, that modify the Frequency response in such way that compensates the influence of 22Ohm. Like an additional setting, where user could choose their earphones and as a result obtain more flat sounding.

Modded ak100 with Listrid fw and 1plus2 sound very nice.

Yes, i have 1p2 and RWAK, and i love this combo, pairing very nice. 1p2 will not wow girls around you but once you put them into your ears there is no way back, at least for me.

I found no impedance issue, generally 1p2 are truly universal in sense of pairing (tried this with C3 and S9 too). The only issue you might think about If you will wear them during activity, the cables are bit stiff and risk of IEM falling out of your ear. But for casual wear 1p2 must be no problem and i found fit fairly good with the right tips. 1p2 is all about music and it deserves best source, RWAK is real beast and drives them incredibly well.

Seriously I am going to see his show The Wall today, hardcore audiophile paradise.

You can always try to EQ yourself. All you need is frequency response graph. I EQed my UERM close to flat on AK100.
