I think you might be confused on the "main folder", what burtomr actually meant is to copy the hex file to the main AK drive. When you plug your AK to your mac, there will be a new drive pop up on your desktop, copy and paste the file into the "drive" icon. That will do.

yep.  so what they are saying is you have:

 

/play list

/system

/music 

 

you need to move the hex file her so have

 

/ak120.hex

/play list

/system

/music

 

then when you unpulg USB it should see file and say updating.

(4) Folders...yes they are there in the 'AK120' main or top drive (thx delrosa) from the factory by default, unless you delete them which is not advisable.

OMG, I used a link a few pages back here to get what I thought was the 1.40 update, it was actually a downgrade to 1.21  :basshead:

 

It's now 1.40.......took longer than all the other upgrades, I think I started at 1.32 which was on when I bought it, and upgraded to each new release.

 

Tomorrow, it will be interesting when I ask my wife if she notices any differences after she listens to it LOL.........wanna bet the answer is nope.

Few questions if that's ok?  Not really been following this player mainly due to price, but some of the special offers atm is making it more intriguing.

 

a)does this do gapless ok?

 

b)Will they drive a pair of sennheiser hd25-II's ok?

 

c)Is the price difference worth it over say the ibasso dx50 or sony zx1 (yes I know, opinion but hey)

 

d)Does this player play nicely with a mac?

 

Cheers

I will answer your question c) Yes it does, I feel it is sweeter in the way music is being presented as compared to the Sony ZX1.

I have a Mac and have experienced zero issues with it and the 120. Very easy and simple to use I have found. It always shows up on the desk top and it is very simple dragging music folders over to it or to delete to trash anything on the player either on board or on the two Micro SD cards. Just remember to empty the trash folder otherwise you won't have the space available on the player or cards!
