I am confused. Earlier in the thread it was said that Fang himself confirmed it does not play 24 bit, at best 16/96

 

Yet my 601 display clearly says 24bit when playing back FLAC from HD Tracks.

 

Plus also my ears hear a clear difference and improvement when comparing The Beatles 24/96 FLAC  to 16/44 FLAC or WAV

 

So is the improvement in sound the jump from 44 to 96? Or is my brain playing audio-visual tricks on me.?

 

help, my brain hurts

Got problem with connecting the player to pc via usb-cable in Windows 7 (in WinXP all ok). The problem is WPD FileSystem Volume Driver. Here is description of the problem. I couldn't to do anything, because the player disconnects faster, than I have time to do something. How to resolve this problem? Any suggestion?

i know what you're saying.. i think the player downsamples the file to 16 bit while playing. just like what itunes does

I have win 7 and it works perfectly fine.

You lucky. But mine not works. In win xp works fine. Have to wait win 8 final release. I could to use virtual machine, but it's ridiculous and not convenient. frown.gif

Phew that's good to hear!

post #1165 of 1418

anybody done any modding to their unit?

 

here's a little preview from my 601's guts :)

post #1166 of 1418

Whoa neato!

post #1167 of 1418

@Mshenay: Thanks! :)

 

small impression:

 

after i modified the active filter, set the dac's bias current, and removing some useless capacitor, i clearly hear an improvement over the original 601

 

the bass reaches deeper and rumbles harder noticeably. the treble also got crispier and livelier compared to the non mod. mid remains thick and lush. how do i know i'm not just hearing placebo effect? i happen to have 601 slim as well, and i can compare them side by side with my modded unit biggrin.gif

 

next action: change the dac chip to something else, and modify the dac's power supply (already ordered the parts, waiting for them to arrive)
