Well, might not be that difficult either. Afterall in the audiophile world, price=quality... so no matter how mk2 sound it WILL automatically be "better" than ak100 mk1 and "worse" than ak120... biggrin.gif

The two sandisk cards and ak100 case add up to about ¥10,000 on amazon japan, so its about ¥10,000 extra for the mod.

Then it's the turn of "AK100 MKII". It worries me is it's the difference "AK100 MKII output impedance becomes 3Ω (3dB boost OFF)" and the previous of "AK100 (3dB boost ON)". You only have ******, the sound of "AK100 (3dB boost ON)" Because it is a free quality complained about collection, you press the play button on "AK100 MKII" half in doubt and "Do or not the difference comes out so much", but rather the quality conclusion there is a difference of.

 

Not sure what it means by.... "You only have ******".

 

 

But i'm loving my AK100 Gold so much. :D

 

Edit by Mod: Let's not go there :p.

Anak, no worries, RWAK will beat MK version no doubt, i have one and i do not need to hear MK to tell this wink.gif

If seriously MK verson is an insult added to injury, lets hope dx50 success will be able to bring iRiver to senses frown.gif

I am on board for DX50 to see what's up there before deciding if ak120 or HM901 will do it for me biggrin.gif

DX50... better wait couple more weeks until they figure out the basic firmware fixes.

i think it's still premature to assume RWAK will beat the MKII before anyone has listened to it yet...

I've already asked Sasaki-san who once owned the RWAK100 and now has the AK100MkII in his hands :-

Hi!
I have long been using ak100 (mod 3 ohms).
We must return to a lot of pages back and see my messages and photos resistors ak100.
http://www.head-fi.org/t/630288/the-new-iriver-ak100-a-high-end-dap/6420
I wrote that we experimented with in Moscow ak100:
- Instead of just wire resistors(RWAK)
- 1 ohm resistors
- 3 ohm resistors
1 ohm resistors are good for headphone impedance 32 ohms or more.
8-16 ohm headphone perfect 3 ohms
LOL. In Moscow, replace the resistors - $ 15 and 15 minutes.

This is a very simple operation and takes little time.
The cost of a small resistor.
