Yeah every 901 sold in China comes with the gift box and the accessories in the pic

Okay, thanks again! Was wondering because of the packaging I've seen, but that's obviously only the outer box. Also read posts about people receiving the balanced amp card bumping inside the box when they receive the 901.

Now I see what you mean. if you buy an additional amp card then it's in a separate plastic case (not inside the gift box, there's not enough space for that). The amp card is wrapped in some foam before being put in the case so it's well protected.

Yes mine comes with the same accessories and presentation box, while the additional amp board came in a plastic box padded with foam, my board wasn't secured within the foam protection and is loose bumping against the plastic box....



You can see from the above the board isn't at the centre of the foam padding as it should be...




And I'm now completely convinced the wobbling has absolutely positively irreversibly extremely enhanced my balanced amp board to sound this crazily good... this HAS to be the reason else no way this ugly player can sound so great... biggrin.gif

Thanks! Now I understand what that banging was about. Whether I'm more confident or not, I don't know ...

Haha you can avoid this by simply ordering just the 901+balances amp board only and I believe it would come pre installed in the 901, but of course then it won't sound as good as mine smily_headphones1.gif

I will certainly only order with the Balanced amp card. We'll se if it will be preinstalled or if it is in a separate box.

I checked back a few pages and am wondering where you guys are currently purchasing the HM-901 (USA). I just bought the RE-600, so i'm assuming the balanced card is the one i want? Thanks in advance.

I believe most of us bought from China one way or another. Yes balanced card is the way to go, even without the re600, and it will really let your re600 shine. The shop you got the re600 from would probably be your best bet to get 901 in stock.

is there a way I can buy the HM-901, one way or another ? I am in Europe. Is there a fellow head-fi-er that could facilitate the acquisition? One way or another .... :)

In another HM-901 thread, someone shared a link of Moon Audio's listing for $999. I'll edit this post & quote the link after my dinner.

there you go guys... but I don't see mentioned of amp board options, so better call and check before ordering.  As they're now making appearances internationally, I would wait for more stores (or my usual stores/sites) to stock it before ordering.

 

Cheers

I know this will be a silly question to those who are tech savvy but will this player play all 24/... combinations? I know my 801 just plays 24/96. Also, will it play wav 24/..., my 801 only plays FLAC in high rez.

Most likely it's the standard amp, judging by the price and that they don't say anything about what amp it is.

My brother ordered the 901 with balanced amp and balanced HE-series cable for me today. When we meet in the end of next month I will get it. He's in China, so I'll wait for him to get home.
