Sounds like your 901 doesn't have the latest firmware.

It is bugging me and I sorta gave up hope that it can be fixed. I did bought the zx1, only to sell it after a week. In fact there are quite a number of used zx1 in Hong Kong forums around usd600-650. I guess I'm too deep into the 901 sound as well as too used to having a portable source powerful enough to use with my LCD3/HD800 when removed from my audio room.... comparatively my AK240 perform a lot closer to the 901 level than the zx1, but still not enough to let me part with my ugly and flawed 901!

It really isn't that noticeable if most of your music already has a soft opening.

Most likely the reason I haven't noticed. It takes me a few seconds to really start listening anyway.

The fade in in the beginning of a new-selected track is heard clearly if music starts from the very beginning of the track. An example: One World from Brothers in Arms by Dire Straits. It starts with drum beats that are cut off and this totally ruins the rhythmical feeling on that song.

This of course is only when you select the track. If it is played in sequence, it plays it correctly, as others has noted.

Absolutely correct, unfortunately mine is approx 2.5 sec behind.

Unless someone can point me to where they changed the core playback stuff or fixed some bug decoding...they sound the same.

Ok, I can hear the fade in. I would assume they can somehow fix this. 

 

I have read that some feel the AK240 has a larger soundstage. I have not heard the 240, little chance out here in the bush of Alaska where ear buds costing 10 dollars predominate. 

 

Now, to my ear, the soundstage projected by the balanced card with balanced phones, is pretty large, and not narrow, so how is it that it could be larger? If it stretches out before you and goes ear to ear and then angle out R and L from there, where are these larger soundstages going? I have read of one having a more hollow sound, from another DAP and while large, not realistic while the AK240 is large and realistic but I have been listening to some live music and it seems pretty darn large and full.

 

Just curious about other findings.
