[REVIEW] HifiMan HM602 and HM801 (w/ balanced amp module impression) - Page 3

I don't really know where the issue is as I simply remove tag from FLAC files and replace them with the simplest ID3 v1, no album art what so ever. Seem to work for me so far.

So you renamed all your file names to include the albums as well?

 

I'm now thinking that filing by directory is the way to go...

 

Is there any way to make sure that the directory is listed numerically/alphabetically instead of by most recent?

Strange. With my 601 I need to include the album art as a tag or else the tags that come out on the 601 screen come out twice or at least that's what I've concluded.

All my files are named in such fashion: track number-album name, then organized in folder by default. As for sorting, I think there is a software people used to sort the drive called drivesort, but I never use it before.

Ok was listening to my DACPort and 602 DAC this evening.  Man the DACPort is just ruthless and compared to the 602 it's very digital and unforgiving.  I have to say the dynamic range is more extended and it is very, very revealing.  I definitely can get fatigued more easily on the DACPort and that's w/ my somewhat modded T50RP which is a touch on the warm side.  I think Beyers + DACPort could be murderous on my ears.  Surprisingly the 602 is incredibly adept as a DAC.  Much better than i was expecting.  It sounds fantastic w/ its NOS DAC and really doesn't leave much if anything behind as far as detail considering its signature.  Highly recommended.  Using my 602/Arrow combo I can tell you there is quite a bit more headroom for Headphones than the DACPort or the 602 alone.  On certain tracks the DACPort can get pegged max gain driving my Fostex.  No such issue on the 602/Arrow.  The DACPort is obviously brighter and actually hisses more than the 602/Arrow.  If you absolutely have to pick every last bit of detail out and analyze it go DACPort.  Beware of a bit more hiss, less headroom and potential fatigue compared to the 602/Arrow though.  If you listen to a lot of low bit rate stuff avoid the DACPort, it will tear it to shreds.  

 

Edit - Looks like I found a way to play my 24bit/88.2 files on the 602.  Use the USB DAC.  Odd, wont play through the player but will through USB.

A slight news update to the HM602 - HM603 will be officially announced around April. It is the same player  as HM602 but with a different amp section. As some of you may have known that HM602 has the same amp section as the HM801's OP2107 amp module. HM603 will have the same amp section as the Power amp module which is shipped with all current HM801. No other detail atm.

I assume this is an upgrade as I haven't followed the 801 or the cards to much degree.  What is to be expected from the change?  I assume this won't affect the LO at all?

I don't think the LO will be affected. As for whether it is an upgrade or not is still up in the air - for what I know, the Power amp card does indeed has higher output for big cans, but there are still people who like the OPA2107 module better (at least that's what I read on erji.net).

I posted this in DIY forum as well. My own digital coax for HM801: Cardas GRLM RCA plug, Nexans RG179 75ohm coax, Neutrik 3.5mm plug. About 1m in length.

Sorry for resurrecting this thread but, great review!

post #45 of 107

OK... back to tagging FLAC for HiFiMan. I just got a 602. Does the HiFiMan Artist selection not take you to a sub listing by Album (mine doesn't)? And does the Album selection not take you to a sub listing by Artist (again, mine doesn't)?

 

When I go to Artist, I get all songs in every album by the artist. Since the files names start with the track number, all the track 1's for every album are first in the list. This kinda sux. And if this is the case, how does everyone using HiFiMan DAPs tag/name their files to sort through them in some meaningful way?

 

Thanks.
