yes.  i just downloaded loads from http://www.2l.no/hires/index.html - all formats to test and see if could here differences!!  only the Flac non 5.1 and DSD64 stereo worked......no 5.1 versions!!

post #2642 of 6309

5.1 sounds like crap on my PC. Could possibly sound good out of my 5.1 Z5500 but don't really use those....

As usual the firmware cannot be downloaded from the US site!!

 

Please sort this out IRiver, this has been an issue for months now with any files downloaded from your US site!!

 

Is anyone able successfully download this and perhaps host it somewhere?

 

JMoon, please kick some ass about this

Corrected.

Do not forget to rename it AK120.HEX

I do not know if they changed anything, but this 1.30/1.32 sound very good with my 1Plus2.

They did mimou. Sounds different yet again but not in a bad way ;). Gonna do a quick A/B on 1.30 to see if I detect any changes once I go to 1.32. Thanks again for the upload.

 

BTW did you rename the hex? I had to remove the .32. to get it to load.

 

I'm noticing the volume isn't as high as it was on the previous firmware. So you have to turn the volume up to compensate. The sound seems smoother than before. Less fatiguing.

Yes I said im my post you have to rename it, just named it like this to be clear for people.
I think the sound is really nice now, and while I was really not too keen on 1.00, I can now say that I am set for a while with this and the Tera.
Well the fact that all my money is being spent elsewhere also helps in the decision wink.gif

Ah I missed that part :P. Right when you said 1.32 the motor reflexes of "who, what, where and when" clicked. biggrin.gif

Lee, any further impressions on 1.32? Would love to hear them especially if you managed to do the A/B.

 

Cheers,

I would be hugely surprised to find any sound differences between 1.3 and 1.32.

 

1.32 was a quick bug fix for the sd cards not showing up properly when connected to PCs etc in 1.3.

Yeah, can't really hear any difference between 3.0 and 3.2. I'm quite happy with how it is right now.
