HiFiMAN HM-801 Portable Player / DAC Review: Part One of Two - Page 24

post #346 of 622
As we wish the best for Jude's family, and wait for the second part of the review, would any knowledgeable and well informed Head-fier like to speculate about the sound quality based on the tech-spec of HM801? [though I understand that the best specs don't necessarily produce the best SQ, even if the latter is subjective ]

Plenty of people heard it at CanJam. But it wasn't the final product and it's not out yet. I could just make up stuff like, I kills puppies and hamsters with it's awesome sound. Keep it at least 5 feet away from babies as they will go mad and try to kill you in your sleep.

That's nothing. I hear a symmetrical triangle of these pumping eac-flac around a roaring wildfire will transform inferno to a birdsong lauded mirror lake by dawn.

Not exactly your average mp3 player.

No... I don't know a Patrick. What's he been telling you about the HM-801?

Nothing yet. It's just the imagery in your post that reminded me of stuff Patrick82 would say, except that your post made more sense.

I thought it made sense when I heard about it. Who's to say it couldn't happen anyway; if these players would just bloody well show up soon.

Surely there's already a lake like that somewhere in the Rockies? As a kid, nature and stuff had nothing on toys but now it will take something like a healthy HM-801 hype.

i wish they made a relatively CHEAP mp3 player with optical/usb out for us to use our pico's and ibassos as DACs. Screw this expensive idea.

iRiver H1x0.

I wish this is just a player with a DAC only

97.8% isn't a good score. I'd be checking the negs with toolhaus to see what the malfunction is.

Well, the year 2003 H1x0 is slimmer, lighter than the Hifiman.

(Sorry, couldn't help myself.)

My 2 Cents

I'm hearing alot of people thinking this is an expensive product. It is I guess if you are used to just carrying around a DAP and a pair of iems. Thats how I started. Then, I had to have a nice P-51 Mustang. To improve further I needed an iMod because of the ipod's shortcomings. Then, to eek out all the goodness possible I had to add ALO's P-Vcap. Of course this has to all be tied together with ALO's finest wire offerings. The result is an amazing sounding but bulky (on the verge of not being portable) package. Price for all this stuff minus headphones? $1,400-$1,500 clams. Not only that but now i have an ALO SXC Cryo for the iMod that I have no need for. ($195.00) If this device coming out can match the sound of my setup for $600.00 and only be a fraction of its weight and size I think I've found a winner.
