The Hifiman 601 is a warm sounding player and not even in the same league as the 3rd ANV.... You might have a preference to a more laid back and warmer sound (muddy to some extent). The Colorfly C3 isn't very warm. It does have some warmth but not what I'd call warm like the 601. The Studio V is a clarity and detail monster. If you love detail and air it is a very good player.
