My RWAK100 for sale for $500. That's a pretty reasonable price, right?

I think that's a bargain.

Lol. I just couldn't handle the urge to buy a high end hp, and RWAK would be perfect funding. ;p. I just modded mine last month for $250. Well, this is how stupid an audiophile can be.

I didn't use the AK100 as a DAC till now. I tried it out now several times with the following set up:

 

MacBook pro (2007) using FLACs with VLC as player -->Mac USB out to AK100 USB in --> AK100 as DAC --> JDS Labs O2 --> FAD Pandora Hope VI / LCD2 / Fischer Amps FA 003 . 

 

I must say the listening Fun was no fun at all :mad:  - distorted or no bass at all, flat middles etc.  This sounds as if I was listening to 56 kbit MP3s or worse.   

 

Can anybody tell me what I did wrong ?  The Files sound good on the AK100 alone or with the O2.  

 

Thx. 

 

I've been using the AK100 as a DAC on my laptop, feeding a Lyr or a Pan Am to LCD2s - and there are certainly no issues with sound quality at all.   The music sounds fantastic.

1)  yes  I maxxed the vol 

2)  where can I set the bit rate? I have no idea about that. I've assumed that the bitrate of a song has been defined while/before ripping it? Anyway - the FLACs I played are 16/44.1 - so just standard to my understanding.  Sorry if I might be missing something here.

You have a mac, right? It's audio midi. It's in Application-Utilities folder.
