Anyone able to help with the bluetooth on the AK100? It seems to pair with my Note II but I get nothing through the DAP when the phone rings and can't get it to stick with bluetooth audio on the phone

Wow at least yours detect the note 2... I can't seem to get both my note 2 and ak100 to detect each other..

To DIY-ers,

 

 

Is there a difference between AK100 and AK100MKII, in terms of PCB mounting holes?

 

Also, is it easy to take them all apart... as in, to take out the entire PCB, leaving just the LCD screen in the Chassis?

Lol are you planning to implant a dx50 internals into the AK100?

planning to put MKII PCB into my Gold...

 

then it would be the very first Gold AK100 with MKII. hahahaha

LOL, 

i remember seeing in pics/review in those convention/festivals where AK had the MKII version in different colors, including gold. But probably can't find it online though.

 

Instead of putting the MKII PCB, why not just mod your Gold to remove the resistor?

Based on MS mod and RAWK, i didnt like the sound signature a single bit... it makes the sound very clinical and "rough".

 

I still want the fluid and smooth sound signature that the default can offer.

however after listening to the MKII, it got me thinking about how the sound engineers in AK have "re-tuned" the sound signature to make it better (a diagonal improvement, price/sound quality).

 

 

It's either Listrid (hopefully) release a new firmware to offer the same EQ (or tuning) that the MKII can offer, or, like i have thought of replacing the PCB, so that the firmware can detect it as a MKII and apply MKII EQ on it. (but issue is that, if the mounting holes/placements differ from MKII and normal AK100, then it defeats the purpose of changing the PCB).

 

 

but like you've said, if there's a Gold MKII, i may consider. But... i doubt it, based on what i was told.

well sometimes the customer service in iRiver/AK doesn't know much either... There was a carbon fiber AK100/120 leather case which was displayed/sale in one of the convention center, but when asked in FB they said they don't have any of that.

I'm guessing those are limited and available in those conventions only ;)

Just follow another post by Kim Victor on how to disassemble the unit.  It is rather strict forward!

It shouldn't be that hard. Lots of DIYers have done it in Korea.

Anyone with the MQS Album Volume 1 or 2 interested in trading with Volume 3 or 4? :)

Is NuForce UDH-100 substantially better than AK100 ?

I don't really need portable, but I need small footprint on my desk.

Hi guys. Has anyone had any issues with their AK100 getting stuck in a skipping loop when playing wav files? If so, any solutions? 

 

Cheeres. 

post #7800 of 8588

Sorry can't help you there mate, all my files are in FLAC and I have never experienced a skipping loop. Maybe the player can not read the files thus searching it over and over again.

It's between the files itself or the tagging I think...

 

 

On the other note, have you guys seen the AK240:

My first thought was "What the heck AK...." (from a design & price point of view)
