HiFiMAN 602: Talk about your initial impressions and specs - Page 2

I would assume same inputs and outputs as 801

post #17 of 1195

Forgive me for being ignorant, but I see that the 801 has only line out and headphone out. So it does not have a digital out? 

post #18 of 1195

No.

The HM-801 has USB and coax in.

Here's some comparison pics I took of the HM-602 Prototype and a production HM-801.  (Taken at CanJam 2010)

As you can see, the HM-602 is considerably smaller.  Very lightweight as well.

It looks soo hot! The size is good, the looks are better, and the navigation buttons might just work pretty well.

Sheesh... 300-400USD.. I hope it sounds good for that sort of cash. Looks like a little gem though design wise. Battery life is a big thing for me so im on the no go list again.

post #24 of 1195

If, and I mean IF it does sound better than the T51, I will immediately buy this player when I get the cash. I would keep the ~200 or so I have now but I need a mini to mini and an adapter right now :/

 

Darn cables lol.

I subscribe to this thread.

For me, its still too big in every dimension.

If it will stricktly beat slfo 2 i might consider buying it, since 300-400$ isnt so much even if i will have(want) to sell it.

 

lets wait for comparisions and impressions.

 

I want a dual pcm1704u-k with analog and coaxial-mini output with thin but strong battery with size of MAXIMALLY - Sflo2 or ipod video/classic. That could cost 400-600$, not more and then i would buy it without thinking twice.

You will get it definitely. Sometime. Just wait for 2 years at least.

That would be possible, as long as you don't mind having less than 3 hours of power.

Well, I really dont mind :)

Im listening to music 1-3 hours per a day, not more. So its no problem to put the charger in when Im sleeping.

3-5 hours of listening time for a player is enought and I think most of us doesnt listen more :)

And btw iPhone when used as a phone and as a source for amp or as a player doesnt live much longer, so why nobody minds about that?

 

post #30 of 1195

Don't forget folks that travel by air, train, etc.  In the flight from LA to Chicago for CanJam, the flight was more than 4 hours, so I certainly would want more than 3hrs of power. 

 

I think 8hrs of power is a good minimum target, as it's basically an average workday.  With the HM-801's user swappable battery I can double that easily.

 

I carry a spare battery with me, so even with the longest possible work day, I can have battery power continuously.
