    The Astell & Kern AK240

    I'll just continue to use my Shure SE585 with the Balanced Cable I have. The original goal was to limit the possible stress from lateral movement, the straight 2.5 balanced plug puts on the balanced 2.5 jack. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Thanks for the reply. Maybe I wasn't clear but what I want is a right angled balanced 2.5 (Plug or Adapter) so, the signal will remain balanced, not to convert balanced to single ended.

    The Astell & Kern AK240

    Does anyone know of a right angled 2.5 balanced plug? I have a cable for my Shure SE585, that terminates to a 2.5 straight balance plug and works fine with my 240. My only concern is, the already fragile 2.5 configuration, made even more fragile, with the straight plug sticking out of the...

    The link was broken but I did a search and found this. Is that the correct one? Looks like it's plug and play, which is excellent. No soldering needed. I'm sure all will appreciate your info.

    I'm sure other owners, will be happy to hear, that a third party battery is available. If my hadn't gone gone critically ill, I would have loved to do the work my self and save time and money. Can you supply the link and price, so others can take advantage?

    I still have them. If you could pm an email address, I can upload them to One Drive and send you the link.

    Review: Questyle Audio QP1R - With Multiple Headphone and IEM Pairings

    I didn't have a battery problem, when I first purchased my 1R and I don't remember the problem turning up, for at least a couple of years. What ever triggered it, the point is, it was fixed.

    I also have a MBP, running Mojave10.14.2 and I'm not having any problem. You might want to try resetting the PRAM and also SMC, on your Mac and see if that helps. Follow this link SMC/PRAM for instructions, if you don't already know how to do it. Good Luck.

    I'm not sure what iRiver email address you're using but the one I've received next day replies from is support.inc@iriver.com. I recently received my 240 back from repair and the support is topnotch.

    InnerFidelity has an overview and MSRP. What is interesting is, the mention of a FW release for older models but didn't specifically say, if the 240 will be included. Maybe I'll have an updated toy, once my player is returned from being repaired.

    I agree with you 110% but as stated before, what else might have been damaged internally? Before this battery incident, it was working flawlessly.

    The Astell & Kern AK240

    Since it seems that I'm Battery Failure #1 in this thread, here is the lowdown. iRiver/Astell&Kern got back to me. Jimmy Moon is no longer with the company so the reply was just from Technical Support. I'm going to just paste part of the email, rather than try to reword it. Just for clarity, the...

    I sent the email and it didn't bounce back so, I guess he's still around. Keeping my fingers crossed! BTW, I didn't mention the fridge, it's best to keep it simple. Thanks

    The Astell & Kern AK240

    Thank you. It's pretty much inevitable for all of us but I didn't think it would be so dramatic. It's my oldest player, so I'll probably go through this a few more times. I'm writing Jimmy now.

    The Astell & Kern AK240

    There was no condensation at all and IMHO, it wouldn't be any different, than taking it outside on a winter day. It's so far out of warranty, I'm not concerned.

    The Astell & Kern AK240

    Like I said, mine may be a fluke but I'm definitely not going to try to charge it again. Just as an update, after it cooled down, it powered up again, like normal. The interesting thing is the battery remained at 50% so, trying to charge it, just PO'd the battery. Given that, it's not as dire as...

    I'm starting to think the 240 has reached EOL (End of Life) and I think the battery is the suspect. Early this morning I turned it on and all was well. I even did a settings reset, just for good measure. It played music and acted completely normal. I decided to charge the battery, which was...

    The Astell & Kern AK240

    I guess you're talking about High Sierra and not a beta of Mojave, if so, I just tried and didn't have any problems. I used it with Audirvana Plus (current) and also checked System Preferences, where it's an available output device. I would suggest checking the basics first, USB cable, system...

    Was your repair through Questyle North America or do you live outside of the US?

    Thanks Bruce, I received my the shipping instruction but unfortunately, I won't be able to ship my defective unit out, until after the end of the month. In the interim, I'd like to know if we'll be getting our original QP1R back after repair? Mine is over 2 years old but in pristine (like new)...

    Will that include contacting the owners, who have already submitted contact information, when originally asked? My information was PM'd to you on Dec 7th.

    As one of the Questyle QP1R '7'(?), has anyone heard back from Questyle (Bruce)? I for one, have not.

    Almost all are Flac at various bit/sampling rates, Wav and DSD, very few MP3. I'll PM you, about your specs vs mine, don't want to bore the others.

    Review: Questyle Audio QP1R - With Multiple Headphone and IEM Pairings

    I never have either, because I paid my dues previously, on my DX90, AK240, Calyx M and a few other players, that I've had in my possession. So, as SOP, I always clean my files before I load them into any player. When the OP said files not found or files won't play, I immediately thought of the...
