Can I actually output digital audio from the hifiman hm901 to a DAC using this adapter?
Yep works with the Hugo.

With the right attachments you can do about anything with the 901. With the docking station, when it comes out, you have optical in or out, USB, coax and RCA's.

I love Hifiman products, but the company is really weird. It looks like products are added to the site like the new headphones and a week later they are taken off. This has been done with the 901 in the past and other products. Doesn't anyone else think this company is weird?

No weirder than Ibasso, HFM does have great customer service

they are only a small company

I can vouch for their customer service - they've been great with addressing any issues.

I'm not talking about customer service which I know there's is good. Its just weird to advertise product for sale and then a week later take it away only to come back months later. I never heard of this happening with any other audio company in the past. Don't get me wrong I love their products, but weird yes indeed.

Maybe at that point they were out of stock ?

Any updates on new cards coming out. I am keeping just the balanced, my favorite so far. Except that balanced cables and adaptors are not so convenient for me.

There is an updated discrete card coming out soon, but the designer Mr Sang only plans to make 200 pieces, which are probably all gone (by preorders) by now.

Not a comparison but Peter from DHC just posted this on FB so I think that can give you guys an idea.

The new lineup may have people a little confused - the AK100 II and AK120 II now have the same screen and Android based, super-easy UI of the AK240 flagship. So what all is shared?
1) All players have wifi streaming of your music library, over the air updates, the big OLED screen and UI, optical output, USB DAC capability, and bluetooth.
2) All players have the 2.5mm balanced output and 3.5mm single ended output just like AK240.
3) All three players use the CS4398 DAC chip from Cirrus Logic. AK100 has one, AK120 and AK240 have two.
4) All three players have DSD playback capability; AK240 plays DSD natively rather than downconverting it to PCM. AK240 does this by means of a dedicated processing chip for keeping DSD as DSD all the way through. This also means AK240 is primarily advantageous for DSD.
5) AK120 and AK240 have the same amplifier specs and DAC precision levels. AK100 has a bit less voltage output despite having a 2.5mm balanced output, and its DAC specifications for distortion and crosstalk are a little lower than its brothers.
6) AK240 has a duralumin and carbon fiber case, while the 100 and 120 are all aluminum.
7) AK100 is 64gb, AK120 is 128GB, AK240 is 256gb; all have one microSD slot to add up to 128GB.
8) All players are close in thickness, but AK240 is the least tall; it is wider than the other two. Players are very close in battery capacity and weight, and I'm guessing battery life also.
9) So, to summarize - the AK100 is now even more competent and lets you enjoy balanced output; the AK120 and AK240 should offer the same performance for PCM 24/192 based on the numbers for its amplifier and DAC precision, with the AK240 in theory only pulling ahead with DSD files. AK240 offers exclusive body materials and a nicer leather case, more memory, and native DSD.

Wondering if Dr. Fang gonna release a higher end model? It seems more people would jump ship to Samsung...sorry i meant AK
post #2609 of 3412

When did AK100 start running on CS4398?

 

Anyway, AK100 (especially) and AK120 don't sound quite as good as HM901. Haven't heard the AK240 myself though.

Hes talking about MKII of Ak100/120 with balance out and android wifi
