The UI DEMO is only a DEMO. We did not put equalizer in only because it is a demo. We will have a equalizer.

DX100 seem to put out the highs very easily so this is another reason I equed it and now it is warm.

I've never heard the 801 in any of its incarnations but I know it is considered to sound quite lush and 'analogue' in character.

 

The Miracles are total chameleons so I'm curious to try SE-5 and MG6Pro wit the DX100

EQ it to make it compatable with your earphone

Forgive me if this has already been posted (I've been mostly focusing on the DX100 threads, lately wink.gif), but I've not noticed this English link being posted in this thread, so here goes:

What concerns me is not the UI but the actual size of the device lol. If its that big is a "Space ship" ;).

 

post #156 of 733

Looks reasonable in size on post 1 but seeing it with other devices would help more.

They are saying “There is no more spare space in this new player. This is the most compact design I have ever done!”

 

Sounds good :)

I'm actually pretty excited about this DAP. I love my HM-601 Slim but I'm wanting something with more power. I was leaning towards the DX100 but this announcement has put those plans on hold. I just wish we had something more concrete as far as release date/pricing go. I'm impatient as all hell....

post #159 of 733



Yeah the 601 sounded nice but it needed a lot more power for me so I didnt get it.

Not sure if this was replied to yet, but the 440mW would be the balanced output, which is essentially twice the signal = twice the power. When the signal balances itself out, it halves itself, halving the 440mW figure to 220mW figure, making it less powerful than the DX100 at 245mW.

Interesting, I would not want it any less powerful then 220mW. The Dx100 is powerful so 220mW aint that much lower so now I am wondering how much power will the new STOCK Hifiman will have?

I listen to my Thunderpants with my HM-801 with balanced amp. They're pretty hard to drive and still I only get to about 4 or 5. On my Westone 4's, I barely get to 1. Can't even listen to them quietly because of the severe channel imbalance. 220mW is more than enough.

played with the UI demo,

 

it looks bloody dreadful.

bright blue text on coloured background looks terrible,

and the wheel button is not able to go up, down, left or right.

 

But if sounds like I hope it does, I'll still buy one.smily_headphones1.gif

 

Hopefully the look and navigation will improve upon release.

The mix of fonts and apperance of texts really needs improvement

post #164 of 733
I agree on needing the wheel to click in the standard directions and rotate. Text colors are ok for me. Other than the click directions for the wheel, I like that it is simple and straight forward.

It is still capable of delivering 440mW into the (full size) headphone you may choose. If you buy the balanced amp module, it includes a balanced cable (for HE-series headphones, but this cable could be terminated to just about any headphone with detachable cables) plus an extra plug for balanced drive that you can solder on the cable of the headphone you have.

 

BTW - I have been told that the power amp delivered with newer HM-801 is about 200mW.
