The New iRiver AK100: A High-End DAP - Page 576

Are you able to pair bluetooth headphones with the ak100?
post #8627 of 8656

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.

And that's the way the previous firmwares have worked for me.  No change there from firmware 2.01, 2.10, 2.20 or 2.30.

I see what you mean with rewind, it's all in the timing. Hit rewind once wait a moment and hit it again goes back one tune.  To quick only restarts the active playing song.  It's been that way for me since 2.20 anyway, same as Solude.

I just bought one of these slightly used AK100 (non-modified, mk1), on 2.20 FW. Got a great deal with an unopened AKR01 thrown in. Really enjoying the SQ, but I'm wanting to use my Leckerton UHA-6 mk2 as an amp and to help with impedance matching and because it has a better amp. The AK100 has the better DAC of course. 

 

I'm sure that my question has been answered in the thread, but it's well over 8K posts :tongue:, and my short search hasn't come up with much. So, If I want to use the AK100 as a DAC, then output to the UHA-6s mk2 to use as an amp. Do I just use a 3.5mm to 3.5mm (male to male) to connect, and is there a way to configure to direct line out or will it always be double amped? 

 

Thanks!

If you want to use the DAC in the AK100, then yes, you connect the headphone out of the AK100 to the analog input on the Leckerton amp with a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable. You can set the volume of the AK100 to maximum. I have used that combination a lot and it sounds very good. The AK does not have a dedicated line out, but as the volume control is digital, it doesn't matter.

The DAC in the Leckerton is no slouch, but it isn't too popular on Head-Fi. You can get a short optical/Toslink cable (with 3.5 mm adapter) and connect the AK to the optical input on the Leckerton, just to get a slightly different "flavor" of sound.
