REVIEW: HiFiman HM-601 - Page 2

post #16 of 1418

Quite forgiving, I really like this part. It is quite painful when the sources reveal everything.

post #17 of 1418

Can you post pictures of the internals?

Hero Kid posted one at the 602 thread, though I don't remember which one. Must be similar, I think.

Not sure about the 601 but the w/ the 602 IT IS!!  Up till 0430 listening to my now 'fixed' hi-rez files.  I'm still curious to find out what the different sound and opamps are in the 601.

Here's the photos I took of the insides of the HM-602. I'd imagine it'd be very similar to the HM-601.

Interestingly enough, I never turned on the EQ, so if you get your HiFiman and it sounds funny, be sure to check that the EQ is completely off. It makes a world of difference and IMHO, the EQ shouldn’t even be used at all with this player.

 

I wanted to confirm this, even for the Hifiman HM-801 ... I just forgot to write about it ...

x2 for teclast comparison.

 

Anaxilus said the Teclast is like chocolate ice-cream and the 602 is like the best vanilla but I didn't really feel the vibe of his symbolic description :/

How do you turn off EQ in the 602 anyway? Do you set it to normal or is there an option to really turn it off?? 

post #25 of 1418
Normal is Off.

I just talked to Head Direct's customer service about a potential package deal without the RE-ZERO but with the RE-262. etysmile.gif I'm curious as to how the price will change. No confirmation yet but I didn't see any use for the RE-ZERO since I already own the RE0. 

post #27 of 1418

Hi, just wanted to ask how do you completely turn off the EQ? Mine just has normal for EQ setting. Is that as good as EQ off??

Argh! Why did I read this!???

S***E, MY WALLET!

It's not that bad of a price when you consider the RE-Zero that comes with it until end of the December. I'm tempted but not sure yet.
