<Renewed at 2012/03/12>The new HiFiMAN 802 & New UI named "Tai-Chi" - Page 5

post #61 of 733
Seriously, though, I hope the 802 proves to be a cracking-good machine.

I've already pre-ordered a DX100 and I'm not in the least bit concerned about my choice, but I will be watching the 802 with interest.

The way I see it is that 2 excellent high-end DAPs is better than one, for the head-fi community, and for the marketplace in general.

I always wanted to get myself an 801 but was stopped by the ergonomics and UI, and the insane nonsense of expecting IEM users to fork out an additional 200 bucks just to use it.

If the 802 is what the 801 should've been, I wish it every success.

My guess is that HiFiMan / Fang may want to keep the HM-801 units they may have in stock until they have finished the upcoming software upgrade - especially if it won't be usable with the current model, but also if the upgrade needs some kind of hardware job to be implemented.

I hadn't heard that before. What are we talking about here?

The 'Game Amp'.

The GAME amp module, which optimizes the use of high-efficiency, low impedance IEM's.

^^ That sounds incredibly lame. Is that a fair assessment, incredibly lame? 

post #67 of 733
The earliest HM801 might need the GAME module, the last two reversions of the stock amp modules actually play quite well with most IEM because they included an extra low gain version that won't overpower sensitive headphone.
post #68 of 733

Well, looking forwards, I feel fairly confident that HiFiMAN will address this issue properly in the stock 802. They'd be fools not to, and let's face it - the DX100 offers 3 gain settings, so if the 802 is to compete, it will likely have at least 2 settings, or if not, it should be geared towards IEM usage, straight out of the box, since it is, after all, a portable player, not a desktop setup.

 

Fingers crossed...

 The Vin yl sound is what I like, my issue was the 801 amp wqas not as strong as I wanted.

Aint new to the market and yes it is better then the Ipod which is not hard to acheive. It is nice but I would say the Hifiman or Cowon will do a better job. Also I expect the DX100 will be even better.

It would be interested to read comments on a new Hifiman 802 especially the comparison between HM-801 and HM-802.

And there were some news about the New HiFiMan.

 

1.Improving the sound-quality of new HM product,and it may named "HM-901" rather than "802".

2.The new HM will support all music files.

3.We will make the 24-bit music files have more sense on the new HM.

4.Improving the the built-quality(comparing with elder serials) and operation(more linear than the elder men).

 

And we will give more detail about 3. and 4. in the future.

 

Link:http://www.hifiman.cn/test/uidemo/(Note. This is a Chinese page,but you can still try the new ways of operation.)

 

 


Well,I got some news now,let's take a look.There was a new HiFiMan on the left of this website,and you could have a try with new HiFiMan's UI and the operated-ways.

To me,the operated-ways just look like the iPod Classic's and the Fuze's,all depended on the wheel to operate.And I thought that may more linear than the elder's.

Are you excited now?
