I suppose he refers to the bar on the right side that will slide up and down if you are lucky enough to be able to access and grab it ...and it is not the least bit accurate even if you do.That is not proper navigation

I am using the algorhythm duet and it pairs very well with the 120. 

However, the sound out of the TH900 is much better than the SE535 (both balanced).

I bought an AK120 yesterday at B&H. Brought it home. Plugged in the micro USB to a wall wart and charged overnight. No light came on during charging and the screen remained dark. Unplugging from the USB charger, I can not start the unit. Is there anything I can try? Am soooo frustrated. It's like being a kid at Christmas and your "big" present needs batteries which you don't have and the stores are closed. Of course, B&H is closed to Monday arrggg.

Do it with a computer, and if you still got nothing then it is DOA.

B&H is open on Sunday, 10am.

Tried on the MAC and no joy. When I take it in tomorrow, should I expect a replacement or will they ask me to send it back myself to iRiver for service.

Try a reset, unplug the ak120 then press and hold the power button and < button I think nearer the top for 7 seconds or so. See what happens...

Sorry for brining this up on the "impressions" thread . Will follow up on the general AK120 thread.

I cannot for the life of me get the cover art to stick to DSF files. Are we supposed to use a specific format/size as far the album covers go for DSD?

How does the AK120 sound with the SE535 without amping? I'm seriously considering buying one to go with my UM modded SE530 (+ extra driver) and HD25, heard a few good things about this pairing, but would love another opinion.

I cannot help you here, I do own a RWAK 120 Titan and due to the modifications Vinnie does to the AK I need to use an external amp.

I'm having exactly the same problem. I'm using Tag and Rename to add them, but nothing shows on the AK120. I use MP3Tag for all my Flacs and everything shows up without problem

Your welcome. BTW what do you mean by SE530 + extra driver? I am just curious...
