Hmmm. I downloaded all the files because I thought I needed all of them, but I think it was the one simply called HM-801.roc­kbox.zip

 

It plays 16-bit files, but not 24-bit ones (apart for a few sec. and then a pause, then a few sec. etc. etc.)

I would expect that the problem is that the dac in the HM-60X is only a 16 bit dac so if the units are even able to play 24 bit files they have to be downsampled during playback.

You don't need the previous versions. What you need is to download these files:

http://mycroft.su/en/cat/portativnye_pleery/headdirect_corp_hifiman_hm601_8gb/mycroft_hm_601rockboxputonsdcarddbd22.zip

http://mycroft.su/en/cat/portativnye_pleery/headdirect_corp_hifiman_hm601_8gb/mycroft_hm_601rockbox6e3b0.zip

 

Note that these files are for HM-601.

 

The driver installation process depends on which firmware is installed. If the first Rockbox version, than you should manually uninstall the firmware by rebooting the samsung memory chip (it had been explayned in the thread), and then your OS will ask for drivers, you just need to show the path (they are in the tools_v2 archive). If you use the second or newer versions, just follow these instructions (they work for updating rockbox firmware too):

 

To return to the original firmware:
1) Open the archive tools_v2. Install the driver for your OS.
2) Run the flasher RK27_UpgradeImage with administrator's rights.
3) Turn on the player.
4) Connect the player via usb to the PC.
5) Go to System / System -> Debug (Don't touch!) / Debug (do not touch!) -> View HW info.
6) In the program RK27Upgrade_Image click on the button to the right from the "Image??" button, select the firmware image, then click the "?? (U)" button and wait.

Hope the 60X receives an update soon. This guy is the man. I will have to make a donation to him.

I can arrange that. :) Or you can do it yourself. The developer is Mortalis from rockbox forum. http://forums.rockbox.org/index.php/topic,10428.45.html

 

When the bild reaches unstable category there will be official bilds.

I had the same problems with interrupted play on hires files, but buying a faster card solved that. Speed class 10 plays very well, but 6 still gives interruptions on certain cards or files.

Now I discovered two uplifting things: the RockBox that I installed is indeed dated 2012-01-19, and it does in fact play 24-bit files (however not at 96kHz: it will then pause for about 1 sec. at every 7 sec.). In other words I can allegedly uninstall it somewhat easily if I want to, upgrade to a newer version or go back to the original firmware.

is the skipping due to the slower SD card you have. That has been cited as an issue.

Maybe, but then RockBox is a part of it, becasue with the HiFiMan firmware I could play 96kHz / 24-bit files without skipping / pauses - when EQ isn't enabled.

When EQ is enabled, it hangs when playing 96-24 files.

Anyone who knows if the RockBox'ed HM-801 plays 24-bit files fully?

I mean without discarding the bits from 16 to 24?

The dac chip is only 16 bit so something downsamples

The HM-801 uses a PCM1704UK, and it is a 24-bit dac chip. Also, I am using it as DAP, not USB DAC.
post #224 of 359
Sorry. I was referring to the chip in the HM-60X. Yes the HM-801 supports 24/96 as dap and 24/48 as usb dac

Some of my (perfectly good - not corrupted) files skip about midway through to the next song, all of them that are doing this are 24/96 files, they do it in the same spot every time, so it seems to be some sort of caching issue, but it's really annoying. If I fast forward just past that moment in the song, it plays to completion, I know of 4 songs across 2 SD cards that do this.
