btw anyone uses the ak100 with pelican 1010 case? Am curious if it'll fit both the player and a custom.. i tried it with just the player and it hardly looks like enough space to fit a custom in it though.

 

get Pelican 1020, it fits the AK100 perfectly, in fact AK100 side by side. and it doesnt fall off if you turn it upside down

I have the 1010 for my IEMs. Just tried to put both my RWAK and IE80s and it does fit...but barely. I can just barely fit both of them. It squishes everything so I would advise against storing both.

Did you take out the sponge on the top part?

That I did not try. I'll try that when I get home and report back.

Thanks, but you might want to think twice since its glued to the top I think? If you take it out it will no longer stick there.
Someone posted a picture in the DX50 thread of being able to keep both their customs and DX50 in the pelican 1010 case (without the sponge). I figured the AK100 should have no problem either since the DX50 is a lot bigger than the AK100..

Thanks for letting me know that it was glued in. I just checked and did see it was glued in there. I thought for some reason it just fit in the top. I did try again and positioned the AK100 in there with my IE80s and got it to fit better, but it still squishes a little more than I would like. I actually just realized too that I have a Toxic Cable on my IE80s making them a lot thicker coiled up. With the stock cable on the IEMs it might be possible to fit both a lot better.

the older version 1964ear's hard case was good for keeping the AK100 and 1 set of IEMs.

 

Similar to the cigar caddy 3400, although the padding is different.

You mean the new one? 1964 was using pelican before they switched to the otterbox type before adding the foam cushion thingy. Fortunately I have their otterbox too, but I prefer the pelican though. Thanks for the info, looks like i might have to switch back to the other case.

the otterbox 2000. the latest variation has got custom foam for storing iems and not just an empty case.

 

I have my AK100 with leather case stored inside with my iems. It will still move around a bit but it is the smallest solution I can think of.

Are you guys using the iRiver Plus 4 to put playlists on your AK100's, manually editing the playlist file, or something else?

Most of the time I'm just not bothering with playlists.

 
If I really want a playlist, I use MediaMonkey (my normal music player and manager) to create the playlist on the player in m3u format. You can set MM to use the linux separator "/" and also to create relative paths which make it easier to do an "auto replace" for the paths required by the AK100.
 
Using linux separators and relative paths, I then open the playlists on the AK100 that I want to use (with a basic text editor) and auto replace the paths to each track with the following details:
 
Main device: /nand3/Music/
 
Top slot: /mnt/SD1/Music/
 
Bottom slot: /mnt/SD0/Music/
 
I then change the file extension to .pls and it works fine.
 
That may sound complicated, but you can batch change all the paths so it's really just:
 
1) Open m3u file
2) Replace all with the required path for the memory area you're using
3) Close file (and save)
4) Change extension to pls
5) Play and enjoy!

How the f**** do i update firmware on this brick?

Jizz...could've been straightforward, no?

 

Just read a thousand pages back on this thread and drag'n'drop the *.hex file to the AK100 root and then reboot, nothing happened, what else?
