We have wolves up to 200 pounds. They are scary big.

Since the Chord Hugo is not a self contained DAP, it's  a useless brick without a computer hooked up to it.   And it only does 48/16 with an iPad or phone. 

 

So it's not directly comparable to the HM -901 or any DAP for that matter.

Since noone talks about it here but it was announced in ERJI..
Your HM-901 warranty is extended 1 more year for free.. All new orders get 2-year warranty instead of one.
Thank you, Dr Fang

Ppl r saying that ipad/ipod touch u can install onkyo player app and then use cck to connect to hugo, it can play dsd.
If u use win8 tablet like surface pro 2 , u can also install jriver to play dsd too

Its not as portable as the hm-901 ..

DAP that can do native dsd is rare n expensive

FYI: HifiMan warranty is useless unless you can provide proof of purchase i.e. PayPal payment transaction form or the original form of payment.invoice.  

 

Does anybody know if Fang upped or will up the warranty to 2 years on the  HM-802 as well?

oh... thanks for the info... I didnt know that... I've been reading on the forum that hifiman after sales service is excellent and they wouldnt leave anyone out in the cold..

 

It was mentioned specifically for HM-901.

Unless I'm reading the specs wrong, Chord mentions "DSD-over-PCM", so it's not native DSD.   So the HM-901 is doing the same thing.

The AK240 is supposed to be able to do native DSD, and it's a standalone player that's slightly more expensive than the Chord Hugo.

DoP is still native DSD for allowing host device to send DSD audio data in PCM frames with special indictor to instruct decoding device (Hugo) to process the data stream as DSD. A workaround

Hm901 firmware converts dsd to pcm on the fly before playback, the decoding/playback is still pcm

Not a big deal to me seeing as there is very little in DSD content out there.  And worse yet, anything high res is clipped to hell anyways as the mastering is crap to begin with.  Sigh.
