I do notice the crackling sound once a while in some of my tracks. I thought it was a poor recording or due to sensitive IEM or both. Did worry a while if it was my unit. All the times that happen was when my AK100 is in my left pocket while hand phone was in my right pocket. But at that distance there shouldn't be any interference?

Depends on the device.  I've had amps that pick up cell traffic even a good 4ft away.

Yup.

My cellphone is like 5 feet away from my AK100/amp and since I don't have a strong signal here, I get interference some times..

Hard to say tbh. I have noticed crackling sometimes when the unit is about 1 ft from my phone, so it could be possible. I think the best tell will be if the crackling happens in the exact same song and the exact same spot. If it is, then it's def something w/ the song. Otherwise, you can try receiving texts with your phone close to the unit. If it's your phone it will be really apparent imo.

Also try switching phone completely off. If you still hear crackle there's no way it's the phone.

That's a really tricky question. Second-hand values are really about what someone will pay for it. I would personally expect to pay $100-200 less than current new retail depending on the age of the device.

Used mk2 is $600.  The original I'd expect quite a bit less given it's drawbacks.

Thanks to you both!

Used prices vary due to many variables. The eagerness of the seller to dispose of their unit, the eagerness of the buyer to own one, the countries where the buyer and seller are located, the taxes on purchases in those countries, the currency exchange rates, the condition of the unit, how complete the accessories and packaging. When a new model such as the AK100mk2 gets released, many owners of the previous model wish to upgrade for many reasons, this of course drives down the prices for the older model. When the original AK100 mk1 was released into the Canadian market, it typically sold new for $749.00 Canadian$ - slightly above the US retail of $699.00 USD. Given that the Canadian dollar has fallen about 11% since the beginning of Nov 2013, a new AK100mk1 should sell for a minimum of $799.00 Canadian$ . This fact allows the used market to charge slightly more in Canada as the price for a new unit has risen. At some point the AK100mk1 will not be available new any longer and when dealers have sold out their stock, this also will affect the pricing of a used mk1.

So, to answer the original question, how much is a used AK100mk1 - the answer is: how long is a piece of string?

I have AK100.

I want talk You about bugs in AK100 with firmware 2.4

 

-Bad displaying of song names with diacritics at main screen. But In the List of songs is it OK !
See pic. The firmware should use the same font...

 

 

 

 

I have a few wishes to future version of firmware. Does not anybody have contact to developers ?

 

-On info screen add more infos about the song.

-Add possibility of DELETE song(s) in device directly. Done.

 

-Add displaying time in europe 24 hrs format (23:59) without AM PM.

 

-Make the text with long names scrolling. Now I cannot see full names.

I do support most of Your wishes especially on full display of location and of song names.

 

On the deletion of individual songs though -  the firmware allows this already.

Just swipe the respective songname to the left and the software will allow you to delete the song.
