I think the only thing stopping me from upgrading besides money is I find the ak100 ui extremely good and the Zx1 can't be found here so I can't really try it
You could wait for feedback on upcoming DAPs such as Calyx, X5, AK240. I think the 901 incredible in SQ and easy to use, but it has very short battery life.

How short is the battery life? I remember it having its own power adapter right ? instead  of common usb charger of some kind , out of those I am rather interested in the ak240, x5 , zx1 and the hm901 , size is not really an issue for me as long as its a stand alone dap of somekind

Honestly the 901 is a keeper...plus with the balanced card and balanced cables you take all the advantage of the amp. But then you only have 5 hours of play. The plus side is that the upgraded battery does not drain while the DAP is off.

How long is the battery life with the balanced setting on off? I don't have any balanced headphones yet

You really should balance your headphones..to use with balance card.
You can just buy more battery if you feel 5 hr is not enough. Its a problem that can be solved

I am getting 7+ hours with the new battery and the balance card

I haven't counted...could be 4 or 6 but certainly not 10.

Thankfully they sent me my replacement 901 with that new battery, it's a lot thinner than the old one and easier to close. I get 7-8 hrs when burning in from low gain @ volume 2-2.5
Tried to use it too with Abyss and got 6-6.5 hrs

I am always in high gain around 1.5.

I have the opposite experience: the new battery is thicker and makes it harder to close the back cover...:blink:

Was that any better sounding then other combo listed on your signature?

 

iMod+RSA intruder

 

R10 Dx100+mk3b

 

If so, the upcoming U235 amp card could be another serious contender for sure.

Does the old battery lose a lot of charge while the player is off ? My HM-901 will arrive next week, hope it has the new one installed. I think it won't be difficult to determine if its losing charge or not.

The german manual has a different standard amp module. On head-direct it's called Ganqi II module. Anyone has experiences with it ?
