The New iRiver AK100: A High-End DAP - Page 566

post #8476 of 8823
Guys should i buy ak100mk1 for $400 or mk2 for $600? All are used. Which one worthed? I use shure215spe. Thx

mk2

post #8478 of 8823
Yes, IEM users is recommended to buy MkII as the high impendance issue of MkI is a nightmare for low impedance IEM.

It's more worth it to upgrade ur iems instead of a dap, considering ur using a entry level iem with a expensive dap, for $600 u can get the se535

Thank you all for your response, i decided to buy the mk2 as you suggest, it is "like new" condition, and he let me pay twice this month and next month. And also it is still 7 month guarante. Sorry about my english since its not my native, and we dont use english everyday in indonesia. Once again thx alot. I will ask here again if there is a problem. Please dont get bored to answer me. Oh and one more thing i choose new dap because i just bought my 215spe last month. Six month more to next upgrade i guess hehe..

Bit late, but the post above about upgrading IEMs is what i would if done.
post #8482 of 8823
+1 to upgrading IEM first.
se215 wouldn't do justice to the ak100 imo. I don't think you'll hear much difference using a se215 with a phone compared to with the ak100.

I think its impossible for me to upgrade iem right now, my wife knows i just bought an iem so she will get mad if i sell it before i use it hahaha.. so the choice is only buy dap now or nothing.. dont worry i can get $600 budget for new iem next six month. More question. Which iem should i try with $600 budget that best pair with ak100mk2? I like my 215spe very much btw.

Keep your current IEMs and try some others with a different sound style/ character.

Most of us have multiple headphones/ IEMS for different genres or moods.

I have Westone UMX3 and Bose IE's.

I have the AK100 but i also have the Cowon J3. The AK100 isn't that special and while the SQ is great and improves some headphones it doesn't with others.

Just food for thought.

I'm looking to buy the Volume Knob Protector2. The one that can be used with case.

 

If you guys see one pop up anywhere PLEASE let me know. I tried contacting the guy that *used to* make them, but no reply.

I have one that I took off my AK100 before I got the S mod done by Vinnie. I'm at work at the moment but when I get home I'll look for it tonight and PM you pictures.

I would really appreciate that. Even if it's scratched up I'll still buy it.

I'll be getting mine with a trade.

 

As an dx90 user who had seen FW effects sq, which one or ones would you suggest?
