Acoustic Research Mysterious New Audiophile DAP - Page 9

post #121 of 151

I loved it when I got to try it on with my Ultrasone Pro 2900. They match eachother. Despite the fact that it has great sound, I hate its UI because everything in the menu thats not English shows up to be a "?" mark.

Could you let me know how did you open it?

Did someone tried swap TFcard to 64GB? I would like to swap it ,if it does work.

As far as I know, you will need to find all the system files on the 32gig card and then modify one of the files so that your 64gig TF card will be fully available.

Oh! Thank you for the information. I did not know that:-)

Do you know where is the information to mod the file? I meant how to open the ARM1 body to see SD slot.

Thanks!

In order to format your 64GB TF card to fat32, you are going to need a card reader, fat32 tool. Also, you need winhex to clone the old 32GB TF card to let the AR-M1 recognize your new card.

Since I read these from the Chinese Forum erji.net, the files are all from pan.baidu.com.

For fat32 formation:

Winhex

also you need to modify something in the MBR or some where a like.

the pic-tutorial below is in Chinese :P

By the way, did you find that the AR-M1 tends to sound better after its warmed up. Perhaps just a little bit. I'm wondering why.

As for opening up the back cover, you simply take off the 2 hex screws and it should slide off just like the back cover of an iPhone 4.

Isnt this overshadowed by more current daps ? like the ZX1 and the calyx m, iirc mython didn't really sing too much praises for this dap

I do not recall Mython tried it. It is actually a great DAP which has three defects IMO: the internal memory of 32g is ridiculous and non expandable, the battery is quite short, and the sound is a bit on the warm side with boosted subbass. It does sound great but I like more neutrality in a DAP.

I am really really sorry , Its actually you that  have listened to it , so now that we actually can "expand" the volume , do you think that the dap is worth it ? compared to more recent daps

Honestly when I tried it I just had the dx100 and little exprience of DAPs. But if one likes the sig, it can rival with other DAPs certainly.

How would it compare to what I am guessing you would think as the best dap in terms of SQ right now , the HM 901 ?
