He said they didn't want to release it in the U.S. until they had a substantial number of units built and ready to ship. I asked about per-orders to see if one could at least find his/her way to the front of the queue, but it didn't sound as if that approach would be employed. He said to check their site, as well as their page on Head-Fi for updates.

I missed that. Thanks for pointing it out, Jamato8. Hope you're enjoying your 901.

Been waiting since December/November when they originally said it would be released. After all these months and still no news I am just gonna get ibasso dx100. Those who heard both say they are similar enough. Really wanted hifiman but it seems they are ignoring the US for this release.

Excellent, so that means we can finally  know the release date for the 901! wink_face.gif

 

Joking aside, though, Andrew, I don't blame you at all for going for a DX100 and I'm certain you will be very happy with the sound quality. The sheer space and focus the DX100 puts around instruments is fabulous for a portable DAP.

Hi-end, absolutely...  Beautiful, well let's just say that's in the eye of the beholder!  I don't think the 901 would win any DAP beauty contest.  Not that I care, BTW.  I can live with the ugly duckling as long as the SQ is good enough to justify the one grand price.

how does the piccolo affect the HM-901 sound?

post #778 of 3169

Who knows? That Chinese seller ain't even an authorized dealer of Crystal Cable to begin with. At least it's longer and cheaper than this cable for AK100 here

Heck, you could also pay 14,888 RMB / 2,400 bucks for this Crystal Cable Reference with 12-gauge conductors

Someone actually ordered that one back in January, LOL

Hmm, coming from where it is coming from( the far east) I have severe doubts that interconnect is genuine. The metal junction looks too unrefined compared to a picture of a similar one from Crystal Cables website, Have a look, see what you think!



Also look at this cable made for an iPod, again from an authorized crystal cable dealer..



This one uses a much smaller metal junction than that which is on cables for home equipment.

I just sent Crystal Cable an email with a link to that site to see wether it is genuine or not..

Way too many fake Siltech cables these days and most likely those Crystal Cable wanna-be products are giving us a good laugh.

 

Being a Chinese myself, I really wanna get those Chinese sellers busted if they were not the real deal.

 


 

Back to the topic, the first batch of HM901 in Hong Kong was already sold out a few days ago
