I am a new AK120 user and have been trying to collect info on how to move wav files from Mac to AK120 without losing the Artist and Album info and the artwork. The AK120 seems to have a lot of issues with Macs. So far, I have been able to move audio and cover artwork from my MacBook Pro when it is in mp3 format and bought from eMusic.com. However, when ripping CD's to iTunes in 44/16 wav format, I lose the artwork and both the artist and album names become Unknown. If I am happy to listen to mp3 audio, I might as well stick to my iPod, so what is the point of high end gear if convenience is lost. Same with some 96/24 wav files that was received in connection with a vinyl LP purchase. Flac seems to work better, so I purchased some flac files. However, the cover art does not show.
Also, I wonder how AK120 firmware can be updated if there is no PC, only Mac, available.
I am sure there are a lot of frustrated Mac users facing the same problems with their AK120. And I am pretty sure that someone has been able to figure out how to go around at least some of the obstacles. So, I wanted to create a new thread for us who are spoiled with the great integration between a Mac, iPod, iPhone and iPad, but who still would like to enjoy the audio benefits of AK120.
Any concrete help and hints are more than welcome!
