dilemma in choosing portable player - Rocoo P / HM601 slim

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, i've been reading this forum for a few months already. Upgrading from Shure SE215 to a Full custom 6 driver (Coming soon). Now i need a new Portable player enough to drive the 6 drivers.

Hope you guys could help me out.

 

After reading most of the threads, i narrowed my choices to these 2, Rocoo P and HM601. these 2 players fits my budget, and i heard that they doesn't require to connect to a amp to play good music(Correct me if im wrong). So i decided to sell itouch 3g to fund a new player that solely plays music. 

 

I heard equally good reviews between Rocoo P and HM601 slim, but cant find any comparison between the 2. So help me out guys! :D:D

Your help is appreciated :DD

both daps have different sound sig, so you might want to tell us your musical preferences or perferred sound sig =)

I think the Hifimans have issues driving custom IEM's, check out the "game card" extension for the HM-801.

 

The Rocoo DAC chips are not top notch, rather cheap, only the amp section.

 

 

Indeed, there is a real dilemma in DAP's now.

I don't really know a lot about the sound signatures. All along i've only been using itouch 3g. i've started to listen to artists like: Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Eagles, 3 Doors Down, Artic Monkey, ColdPlay, The Darkness, FleetFox, RadioHead, Thirteen Senses, Kill switch engage, Michael Buble. And also current pop / rnb songs.

 

I like details, wide sound stage, good imaging. i've tried UM Melody, and i like the sound from it.

yeah, so thats all i think. (Sryy, don't rly know how to describe it well enough) ><

801/C4/DX100 are too expensive for me already :(( sadly.

im looking for a player without having to have a DAC or AMP(idk what you all call it) to play music. 

 

Oh really? i didn't know that, is it like no enough power to drive all 6 drivers?

Hmm, yeah i know, but the better ones are very expensive :X

If you like details, wide soundstage and good imaging, you do NOT want the HM-601, which is vintage (analog) sound.

 

 

Try this - http://www.head-fi.org/t/578330/teclast-x19hd-now-available

 

The size, battery life, SRS TruBass and FLAC support etc. is all very good.

 

You can connect it to an external amplifier, and achieve pretty much the same result as any Rocoo.

 

Check out Colorfly C3 and CK4 but be careful of fakes.

Ya i also want to have a FLAC file support and a decent storage space, about 32gb. it'll be best if have micro sd card slot.! :D:D

post #10 of 34

Yeah the Sony Z1050, Z1060 and Z1070 don't have a MicroSD card slot either.

 

 

I think you can use a 32GB SanDisk on the Colorfly CK4?  Perhaps you can research that.  I have the Teclast T51 which is discontinued now, btw.

You don't need top player for multidriver IEMs.

Because im looking into those built-in amp & good dacs, not wanting to carrying bulky things ard.
i heard that if im using a custom iem with more drivers, normal itouchs wont be able to fully utilize its capabilities.
