Oh...actually so this 2nd HM-901 I bought to replace my 1st is 2nd hand, not new. Funnily the serial number of this one is one prior to the 1st one I bought. So Spkrs01 & I have sequential serial numbers. They're from the same batch from early June.

 

The next batch (of which I put my name in the list for) hasn't arrived in Japan. Fujiya says they don't know however on eBay, someone in Fukuoka Japan's "collecting" orders citing release date to be 21st July. If this chap is getting it from twctokyo too then Fujiya should get the next batch on the same date.

Can't really go wrong with either combo soundwise!

 

Personally I prefer all-in-one solution of 901 which is smaller in size and one less item to charge and one less interconnect to spend my $$$ on.... UI is also snappier on 901 than DX100, but with a stack you have more flexibility to switch amp for different sound.  901 can do that to some extend with the switchable amp board, but so far only 4 (3 from hifiman and one from a china DIYer) is available, with 3 more planned by hifiman.

Is anyone using the HM-901 + balanced -> multi driver custom IEM? (the IEM board I believe is not out)

Just curious if the balanced amp is worth it.

Funny thing .... I already own the DX100-Intruder stack. Really satisfied with it. But you know curiosity....smily_headphones1.gif

No, IEM amp card isn't out yet. Output impedance of the Balanced amp is less than 1 Ohm, which makes it perfectly fine with low impedance multi BA IEMs.
post #547 of 3412

Skip the standard amp card, it doesn't do the 901 justice. IMO the balanced card is A MUST for customs.

 

Disclaimer: I haven't heard the Minibox card yet, not quite sure if it's suitable for IEMs.

Yes.  Balanced card is excellent with my TG334, W4, and XBA4... I was actually holding off to wait for the IEM card until I read many good impression in chinese forums with multi-BAs.  Is actually wondering what's the point of the IEM card besides maybe price...

I know I know.... else won't be sitting here with both the AK120 and HM901.... and too many IEMs.... very_evil_smiley.gif

 

I have a feeling you have room for more DAPs too!  Go for it champ!

This is a VERY nice photograph, Jamato8!   I really like the way the reflections and shadows work - it holds my attention a long time.

Who's brave enough to give it a try? very_evil_smiley.gif
Any further updates to 1.080b? Did any HF HM-901 members take that on?

Separately I'm having a *%# of a time trying to get my card read (cos my original SDCard also went to Russia ;-)). My 128GB was reformatted to FAT32 this morning after last night's long FLAC copy to ExFat failed.

Meanwhile I brought my RWAK100 microSD & my card adapter & I'm getting SDCard errors too :-(. Yesterday the very same microSD worked but with the shop's card adapter. Will pop by 7-11 during my lunch break to see if I can buy another card adapter.

Not having a good day with the re-purchased HM-901 at the moment.

The latest is still 1.080b. I am going to buy a 128GB card very soon, which brand are you using right now?

Right now I'm -trying- to use a SanDisk Ultra 64GB MicroSDXC with intermittent luck via the SanDisk SDCard adapter. With my former HM-901, I was using 128GB Transcend successfully. I have another Transcend 128GB which was formatted and music being copied to it just before I left work. When I get home I'll try that card again with my "newer" replacement HM-901. I think there's just something dodgy about my 64GB SanDisk MicroSDXC. Works fine in the DX100 & RWAK100 but maybe the HM-901 is somewhat more sensitive. So no one in HF has trid 1.080b yet?
post #554 of 3412

That's strange. I have two of the same 64GB cards and both work fine with the 901 using the included adapter.

post #555 of 3412
I have 2 cards (let me guess, u used them in the AK1x0 ;-)??).

One works if I'm lucky (i.e. intermittently). The other worked once yesterday & couldn't for the life of me get it to work today. Card error.

I did buy the two 64GB MicroSDXC on different times & I do believe SanDisk has been refreshing/updating them. But I feel the older one has the higher percentage of working.
