HiFiMAN 602 PRICE REDUCED TO $330 + shipping
Will Ship To: Anywhere
I'm selling my almost-new HiFiMAN 602. It is completely and perfectly functional and in the exact same condition that I got it in out of the box. I've put about 20 hours on it and while I wasn't blown away at first, it has come to grow on me to the point where it destroys the sound of my iPod (4G Touch, and don't get me wrong, it's no slouch). Of course all of the accessories are included with it, except the RE262s.
The player sounds fantastic (very rich and analogue) and is the best portable source that I've heard to date (Cowon ain't got nothing on this guy). After giving it much thought, I've decided that while it is a great source, there are two deal-breakers for me:
It's internal amp is actually really good; better than my dad's friend's Mini^3. The problem with it for me is that it's too dark for my already dark Grado HF2s (IMO, of course). Using my dad's Practical Devices XM5 via the line out of the 602 remedied this because it's a very bright amp but I haven't the money to afford one for my own at the moment.
Secondly, my family is considering getting a Macbook to replace our archaic PC (6 year-old Dell, ~1GB of DDR2 RAM, Intel graphics card... 'nuff said) and apparently there are troubles with the 602 being recognized by Apple stuff. This is a biggy for me so I'm going to have to let it go and get something Mac-compatible. If you have a Mac, do not get this (at least until they find a fix).
I'm asking $350 + shipping. I have ebay feedback here: http://feedback.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=feedingfrenzy1&ftab=AllFeedback
I've taken pictures but can't figure out how to upload them from my Touch. I'll post 'em as soon as I figure it out.
