Are you able to pair bluetooth headphones with the ak100?

Yep

Where can I purchase a brand new AK100 Silver online at?

Has anyone else had any issues with the skip track buttons on the AK100 not working properly with firmware 2.40? I've gone back to 2.30 and the issue has disappeared. I wondered whether it was due to my large library (I am using 2x128GB micro SD cards, both pretty much full) but the issue seems to be with 2.40 only.

Not here.  Keep in mind that it tends to ignore buttons whether real or touch ones until it finishes reading the file.  The bit and rate appear at that point.

Thanks for your reply. Just to clarify... skipping tracks forward was working ok, but skipping back was not (even when giving the A&K enough time to read the file, I could not get to a track previous to the one I was already playing, it would only ever go back to the start of the current track). It's no biggie really, as I am happy enough with 2.30 anyway. Just in case I do feel the need though, Is there a way to flag these issues up for iriver's attention?

Yes, same here.

An hour after installing the firmware 2:40 I went back to 2.30, especially for this flaw.

   I've been way and just read this.  Interesting, 2.30 had so many bugs for me and 2.40 seemed to address many of them, although not all.  I just tried what you mentioned and it works fine on mine with FLAC and mp3 files.  I can use both the hard and soft keys to forward and back even a combination of both and all works as it should. I have a AK100 MK2 with a 64 gig Sandisk in slot one and a 32 gig Sandisk in slot two.  Just after buying mine I had an issue with the 'Next' / 'Fast Forward' hard key not working as in what I assumed was a mechanical issue.  The unit was replaced and many of the issues which I posted about and was chastised for (construed as whining) went away.  On that unit everything worked basically as it should have except for the mechanical hard key issue.  So I must wonder if there have been running production changes of the AK100 MK2 hardware that new/old firmware may have issues with?  You would think that everyone would have an issue in 2.40 with skip back function.  So running hardware revisions makes me wonder?  Cheers, Neil

I have the unmodified AK100 running ver 2.4.
I have two 32GB cards with 16 and 24 bit flac, and a few mp3s. I can not reproduce such problem.

Mine is a MK2...

I am able to get the rewind button to work but it is very picky.  A rapid double-click will always just restart the current song.  I found that it only works if you press the rewind once and then wait until it just begins to play the current track to press the rewind button again.  This is the only way i have been able to get it to rewind to the previous track using current fw.
