Version 0.06. In the meantime I use 32 gb Micro SD cards in my 601. I use the miscro sd to sd converter and it works like a charm.

Same here, but only with flac files as ape files freeze my 601 in the 32GB micro Toshiba class 4, although they work on other cards (smaller size).

I'm amazed that Hollywood hasn't discovered Turok. Oh wait - looks like this went straight to video. The '$2 a week' videos at that ...

I have given up hope that they can ever bring Nemesis the Warlock to the screen, but after Hollywood's abysmal rendering of Dredd, its just as well.

LOL, yeh yeh yeh.

Since you have the HRT Music Streamer II, and as I am looking for a good dac (only dac no amp) do you advise me getting one ? or something else (better / more expensive), and hope you enjoy your O2 as I am waiting for it to be shipped from the same supplier.

What are you exactly looking for in a DAC? The Streamer is a warm sounding DAC which would pair well with bright sounding cans. The DACport LX is more neutral but with added emphasis on mids, and a hint of warmth. So if you have IEMs that are lacking in mids then the LX would be a good bet.

Thanks for the reply lee730, well My IEMS are the westone4 (neutral) and UETFi10 (not neutral at all). but I want something that works also with my Sen.HD598,Beyerdynamic1350 ,sen 25 originals and (and soon the HE500). I know its difficult to get " A single ring to rule them all", but I enjoy listing to every can I have, for me , each suits specific mood and music.so I am in a dilemma . I appreciate anybody suggestion .

From what you are saying I would recommend a more neutral DAC. You want to be able to enjoy your music across the board with all of your headphones. I would bet a more true to the source DAC would be more compatible in general. I find my DACport LX to pair very well with my FX700s and Open-back Denon 5000s. The sound is very transparent and I always enjoy good mids. The LX is a bit cheaper than the regular DACport so I opted for that and use it paired with my E9 or UHA4.

To be honest I wanted to get CEntrance DACport, but after some digging , I found that the LX series to be better (sound wise& minus amp), but still balancing my options as Amazon does not have the LX series, any advice?

You can order directly from CEntrance. That is how I acquired my unit. Although I did get mine on pre-order so I paid $300.00 for my LX.

I wish that Fang , will cooperate with the developer of Rockbox on the HE-60x, as it will lead for a faster development, and happier Headfiers/customers, what you think?

That logically would make sense but in the world of Chinese DAP that would most likely not come to fruition. I always get the impression that they purposely mess things up to PO the customer :)
