In regards to the remote, AK used to make a simple bluetooth remote that retailed for about $50. Perhaps they still offer it—I would call iriver directly to see if they still have any in stock.

 

Alternatively, I have a friend who bought one long time ago for his 240 but he now uses AK Connect. He probably would be interested in selling it. Message me if you like.

I'm actually not too fond of the idea of carrying an additional remote. After all, the 240 is a "portable" device. 

 

Just a question, when you're using AK Connect on the go, does your album art show up properly? Just wanted to confirm if it's the embedded album art tag is causing the crackling.

There are occasions where some of the artwork is missing, but not necessarily the same with each use.

Thanks for the reply again. I've decided to take some time to clean out my Metadata in an attempt to remove the static. Just for reference, what tags do you use on your files? Artist, track name, track number? I figured that it might be the comments section that causes the static as I have lyrics there sometimes.

edit. I've tried clearing one album of all Metadata save for Title, Artist, Album, Year, Track Number, Genre but I'm still getting static.

Sorry to hear about your continued troubles ...

 

I use the same fields as you, and only those.

Do you embed artwork into your flac files? Thought I should remove them and use AlbumArt.jpg instead

I forgot to add that, yes, my FLAC and ALAC files have embedded album art.

 

Good luck!

For me, the QP1R outshines the AK240 slightly for SQ. I'm not facile with Geek Speak to describe the sonic specifics, maybe someone else can. As far as UI, the AK240 is light years ahead. I have no experience Onkyo DPX1
