Hi. I'm an exclusive sales agent of Monster Audio Co. ltd. in Russia and CIS (excluding the Ukraine)
I'm proud to say that Russian enthusiasts (with respect to me of cause ) have integrated famous rockbox firmware into this beautiful DAP.
Here is a link to MA Port of rockbox firmware and instructions for flashing: http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/HifietMAPort
Feel free to ask me the questions about it.
I will rockbox my MA9 ASAP. I should also add that i have received the 1796 DAC board as well as a new amp board, i believe it to be either the one for the new MA8 (so i have both the DAC and Amp of an MA8) or the balanced board. So far i have just swapped amp boards and the sound is so different. Much more powerful, in your face but less resolving. It also is much louder, i reckon it will be able to drive anything very well, need to take it for a spin with Planars.
Rockbox is great news as i hate the current UI!
