Guys,

 

I suggest you to listen ''B&W - Very Audophile Recordings''.It is 16 bit FLAC.But,really good recordings.

 

It plays amazing with my setup. :)

Nope, these just got out. You only have 256G REGULAR sized SD. And soon 512.

I see. My unit is almost full now. I wonder if the majority hereo finds 384GB of storage sufficient enough for their needs.

I prefer 1 TB of portable storage on DAP.

A&K could put dual micro sd slot for AK100II,AK120II and AK240.

 

At least for AK240.

 

If they could = 500 GB

They got back to me today. Now, some things might be different for you guys but I'm sure it's similar enough for everyone. This is because I'm living in Korea but most of u guys aren't. I will move back to Canada in a few years. Well, guys at iRiver told me you can get the battery replaced for free during the 1 year warranty time(2 years for Germany I believe) but you have to pay once the warranty is over. You can send the 240 by mail or give it to the iRiver people who will replace the battery for you for about $58 USD. You won't be able to replace it but they will replace it for you.(unless you're brave enough to try your iphone battery or something) This was the only thing that was stuck in my mind which stopped me from getting the 240. Now that I know that it's replaceable and it seems cheap enough I will get the 240 soon. (or suddenly change my mind to get the Chord Hugo) Well, wish me luck on my journey to find the perfect IEMs with the 240. ( loving Final Audio Design's FI-BA-SS atm)

I bet this will make the players slow down and lose battery faster though.

Could they improve the firmware so that the data transfer between pc and the device is a little faster? I really use it as a portable gear instead of usb dac

To replace a portable device battery is no rocket science...my colleague actually replace everything except the main board of his iPhone5 (over the process he replaced the shell with white from the original black).  So, as soon as we can source the battery from a 3rd party (apart from iRiver), we should able to DIY on the battery replacement.

Guys, I need your help. My micro sd (SanDisk Ultra® PLUS microSDXC 128GB)card is no longer working. Can anyone recommend other reputable websites (apart from amazon) where I can get one?

Well, as they have a minimum 10 year to lifetime warranty (dependent on where you live) - should just be able to get a replacement..

post #5624 of 8541

Not in my case. I bought it directly from a guy who lives nearby. It was slightly cheap, so I decided to get it. 

 

I'll rather buy now from a reputable reseller. Unfortunately amazon does not ship it to my country.

 

ps Just found this. Anyone used it before?
