Pekingduck, Could you please email the 24/88 ALAC files to head.direct@gmail.com? We will fix the ALAC problem in the next firmware.

 

About wheel problem, we will need your player S/N number so that we can find out the worker and QC checker of your player asap. We are redoing QC checking for all of our current stocking after we found your post.

They will be sending me a new scroll wheel today. At least their customer service is responsive lol.

Hoping to receive mine by tomorrow and finger crossed it would at least play music properly.

No, you have to purchase a special base that the 901 fits on to utilize it as a dac.

@ Nankai (Fang Bian)

 

I can't understand why it is not possible to make a USB cable for DAC function. Could you please explain why this is so?

(For portable use with a laptop computer the big dock is not very convenient.)

Which board is it? GAME, Standard, Balanced or Power?

And it would be very nice if it had less than 1 Ohm output resistance (as opposed to the HM-801 amp cards).

Wonder if anyone has anything to say about this Minibox Amp card for 901?

Well I'm sure someone would have to say if they had it. I'm curious what this minibox buys you though - i.e. what's it's advertised feature over the other cards. The balanced amp module I had in my former HM-901 also comprised of OPA627AU's (but just 4). Is the Minibox a balanced amp module too?? :-

You feel bad and then you listen to it and stop caring smily_headphones1.gif
post #387 of 3412

Hahaha :D. I'm running outta DAPs too 'cos I've just sent back the MS-AK100 loaner back to Mezzo Soprano tonight. Back to the trusty old RWAK100/DX100.

 

But it's ok 'bout the HM-901 as I'm still on order for the next batch. Reading about the scroll wheel though worries me a little 'cos the one I had (which is now yours) seems quite robust but what about the next one I'm getting? I hope that it'll be just as durable.

Given Fang's attitude to Japan/Korea he better ensure both figuratively and literally "the wheels don't fall off" of his 901 in those markets....

What is his attitude to those countries?
