You have the S mod.......blink.gif

 

Should have mentioned this in the first instance, the S mod nullifies the USB Dac function!

If this doesn't help @ivanrocks321, can you please specify where the issue lies? I.e. does your computer recognise the Ak100 as a DAC, but no sound? Does it not even recognise the AK100 as a DAC?

For home use, I'd never consider any of the several $$$ IEMs I currently have on hand over the TH-900. For use outside... well, lugging the TH-900 around isn't a very attractive option for me. Kudos to iRiver for continuing to update the firmware. The USB DAC option was a welcome addition, and I just downloaded the Pro EQ 2.20. Listening to it now, will see over the next few hours if it's an attractive option compared to no EQ.

 

On that note, I tried the Pro EQ with my RWAK100 (i.e. modded for impedance) and could still hear a change in the sound so it DOES work with modded AK100s (as it should because the hardware mod shouldn't affect software EQs). What I can't say is if it works as intended. If iRiver are using the Pro EQ in an attempt to offset impedance issues, it may be unecessary and detrimental on modded versions.

 

Personally, I prefer the sound without the Pro EQ with RWAK100 direct to UM Miracles. The Pro EQ sounds to me like a V-shaped EQ curve which is essentially a "loudness" adjustment in old school hi-fi- terms (if what I'm hearing is accurate).

Dignis Case! Unboxing!

 

Dignis Case! Click for Pics! (Click to show)

Box!

Inside!

Case!

Protective Film! Not for screen. Just for 3.5mm jacks and power button.

AK100!

Back

 

Overall, Dignis case is very solid. I got the Black/Red Simple Version(Without metal tab on the back). If you are in Korea, you should buy them from Dignis's website, as they only cost $30. Very good case(and just about the only case besides iRiver's case). According to their website, they are making samples for diary case with 6 slots for Micro SD cards for AK100. This should be interesting.

They are very high quality. According to their website, they used Italian leather and are hand made in Korea! They feel very sturdy as well.

I don't know about the 100-S but it works on the 120-S. I don't see why it wouldn't work since they use the same DAC chip.

All,

 

USB dac function does work with the RWAK100-S and RWAK120-S, as far as I know.

Works on mine. I am listening to it right now as I type!

Oh Dear

 

I do apologize guys....and especially to Vinnie!!!

 

The USB Dac function does work! So embarrassed here....I have been trying on the USB 3 ports on my Desktop which are on the side of the monitor and really convenient, while the USB 2 ports are at the back and bloody hard to get to.

Basically, I been doing what I preach not to do, and that is use a USB 3 portconfused_face_2.gif. I have just checked on my Laptop and the USD Dac functions fine and sounds great. Cannot wait for the arrival of the arrival of the RWAK120 S tomorrow............................... 

 

Again many apologies!
