The New iRiver AK100: A High-End DAP - Page 6

post #76 of 8689

Anyone going to buy one and test it out? popcorn.gif

The memory space doesnt seem to be a problem with dual cards now i just need to know how long the battery lasts :P
Probably wont beat my X7 which only requires a 20 minute charging once every 10 days or so but im hoping it can at least get to at least 20 hours non-continuous playback :/

nah I dont have any more info, but I do think i'll get one if the price isnt utterly stupid. I dont need or want the dac or the amp, so still a bit miffed at the huge size.

I need more info before I decide, maybe I wont can my research into DIY SD card players just yet. my first mod would be to remove that stupid volume knob, given i'll be using digital out its meaningless to me and just makes it vulnerable. nevermind the fact the WM8740 has a good inbuilt digital volume control, why bother with an analogue one unless you are just pandering to illogical buyers who still havent caught up with the technology and prefer the type of small analogue pot that can fit inside portable devices with all its flaws

The launch has been announced in Korea today, and the web is astellnkern.com.

 

Unfortunately, it's all Korean though. Price is KRW 698,000, which is around USD 625.

We have any Korean speaking/reading members? If you are reading this please give us the scoop.

From what I can guess :

 

LI-Po battery, 2000mAh 3.7V, given for 16 hours of run time with 16bits/44.1kHz FLAC. Battery doesn't seem user serviceable, but the pics show screws, so it should be possible to open it fairly easily.

 

Dimensions and weight 59.2mm X 79mm X 14.4mm, 122g.

 

2.4" IPS screen

 

The overall design is very close to the H1X0/H3X0 series.

Thanks French. The UI is probably close to what iRiver has/had. It does not seem to play as high
a res as the DX100. 16/44.1 is what iPod > CLAS/Fostex HP-P-1 can play.

Of course one of the great +s is one device not 2 or 3.

Hope we find out more, soon.

I was only giving the battery playtime at 16/44.1. The max the player can do is 24/192.

Why is the AD in Japanese instead of Korean?

I didn't bother copying the sounds specs, as everything is stated "No load". Might as well say that your car can do 200 MPH without a driver ...

We laugh at the folk who stand in queues outside Apple stores to get the latest iDevice, but are Head-Fiers really in a position to do that ? I'm sure you had your reasons for getting rid of the DX100, but I'd like to see some actual impressions on the sound quality of this gizmo before I allow myself to get swept up in the hysteria ...... 


I feel the same. The DX100 is not perfect by any means but so far as a DAP it has come the closest bearing sound quality is the main priority while not making too many compromises (yet there are still a few that need to be addressed)....

So the same as a Rockboxed Clip+ or Clip Zip......blink.gif
