The UI works fine for what I do...listen to songs.

Have you guys ever experienced the joy of reformatting a 64gb sd card and then enthusiastically transfer 60 gb of music so to refresh your portable listening experience? Only after transfer, you realize the card would not scan...so u delete the music from the card and spend hours again to transfer one album at a time.... So to identify the one **** blocker?

That sounds strange. As long as the card is fat32 formatted, I don't think it should have issue. But I would recommend everyone to remove all the tags of the songs. It will increase the speed dramatically.

I think I read from erji or somewhere from early 901 days recommending a factory reset before putting in new card with new music... never done that nor experienced card won't scan issue.... did it work finally for you? And what was the character encoding, or file format or tagging of the offending album?

Card is fat32 and found out its one of Charlie Haden (R.I.P) 24/192 2disc that caused the scan problem
It just kept on appeaeing dot dot dot forever...
Strange

Re the new version discrete card, it's quite hard to come by. I tried buying one more for a friend and contacted various sellers and none was willing to ship to Hong Kong. Best is to look for it at erji forum's buy/sell section. I think the original price was like ¥800, I got mine for ¥1100 shipped. And yes I saw some listings for ¥1500 which is quite excessive.

 

I got the new version of the discrete card for ¥800 last month. It has now replaced the Minibox card as my favorite amp card for my 901. Definitely worth seeking out.

RMB800 was the pre-order price for people who pre-ordered directly from the designer. I don't think it's still available for that price as the regular price went up to RMB1,100. I think the designer only made 200 units and has claimed he would not make more units after this run.

Yea I know "sang gong" and got the original version from him direct, but he said it is very troublesome for him to get the funds paid to him from overseas and wasn't willing to go thru the hassle for me this time, and I ended up sourcing from erji.

That's a valid concern for him. I am in China so it's very easy for me to pay him directly via AliPay. He was quite pleasant to deal with and most important is that the card sounds best.

You can contact him through phone or QQ. Since you are in China, it's pretty easy. Let me know if you need any help. 

 

I bought mine directly from him too when I was on vacation there in early June.

Hey Bro, good to see you here :wink_face:

 

Yes, the new discrete amp card is my favorite card among all card I had or tried: balanced, minibox, IEM and classic (both versions) card...  It's more powerful than the balanced card in balanced mode, and it drives the HE560 to a very listenable level, sometimes I don't bother using desktop amps :)  The only drawback is that the battery runs out of juice in 4-5 hours. That's why I ordered a second battery and a separate charger (should be here soon).

How's the noise floor of the new discrete?

 

In fact let me expand that question to all the boards except the balanced amp module which I already have but no experience with the other boards. Do any of the boards have a noticeable noise floor?
