Can someone shed some light into this information? Also, could someone provide more information about the dock? Thanks

The 901s was announced a while ago w/ some cosmetic changes plus better power management. But later on Hifiman decided to give it a full refreshed design w/ probably some internal change/upgrade too. Don't think it's gonna be available anytime soon given our experiences w/ previous Hifiman DAPs. I'd just get a 901 first if I were you, and upgrade to the 901s if it's MUCH better than the 901. Hifiman will upgrade for us 901 owners w/ certain amount of cost only.

We've been wondering about the same, but I guess Hifiman have their own reasons about leaving out balanced output from the DAC. Even the balanced amp card is a pseudo balanced design with single ended input to the balanced amp card than converted to balanced output. It's gonna be a major change if they change the DAC output to balanced from the current single ended, they might just call it a HM910 instead of HM901s...
