It supports embedded album art or a jpg file in the folder.

Enjoy!

The guys from stereodesk told me that expect to shipping mine next Friday. So I'm looking for a sd card for it. I'm thinking about this one for storage http://www.beachcamera.com/shop/product.aspx?sku=LXLSD128CTBNA600 What do you think guys? I'm just thinking in the fastest one. Or could be better a smaller capacity? Also I read about the need to have an extra card in fat32 for firmware upgrades. I suppose that for that purpose 8 gb is enough, am I right? Could it be even smaller, like 1 gb?

Lexar should be fine. I haven't used it myself but have read from chinese forum it works tho a bit more expensive. The kingston I got for less than $99 in the local computer mall. The card for firmware update can be as small as 256mb as the firmware file is less than 40mb.

They told me via email "this week" and "Friday", so I assume that is the 2nd
. This is the text of the email:

Hi Fernando,

The HM901s are out this week and I expect to ship them Friday.  The docks however are lagging behind.  If you would like, I can send you
the HM-901 first, or we can wait and ship them together.  (the docks could be another month or more)

Just let me know what you'd prefer to do.

All the best,

Fred

I like the Lexar cos in amazon all reviews are 5 stars and the 4 reviews of 1 or 2 stars are for wrong item for a vendor that doesn't appear anymore. Thanks for the advice. Ordering.

ACGears said they should be receiving the HM-901's tomorrow the 1st. biggrin.gif

That Lexar card is 90MB/s! It's as fast as the Toshiba card the guys in the HDP-R10 thread were testing and said sounded better/best. Allegedly because it has less jitter. (The ones they tested were mSD cards of course and it's a different DAP, but better safe than sorry IMO.)

So what's the first 3 tracks you're goin to listen too or did listen too on the momentous occasion when you got the HM-901 in your hot little hands?

For me it's gonna be
1- Tipper "Broken Spectre" from the album - Broken Soul Jamboree
2- Bjork "Cosmogony" from the album - Biophillia
3- Robert Plant and Allison Krauss "Polly Come Home - from the album - Raising Sand

These songs are an absolute audiophile delicacy.

I think that I would be re-playing what I listened the day before just cos I would be familiar with the material. But taking the question like the "ideal" best tracks to test the player I would say:

 

1. "Chan Chan" from the album Buena Vista Social Club specially to check the detail from the Compay Segundo voice in the background.

2. "Sorrow" - Pink Floyd in the version of the live album PULSE, to check the guitar intro, which has a extreme wide sound, and for the overall sound of the album.

3. "Giorgio by Moroder" - Daft Punk from their new album Random Access Memories, cos I love the track specially the second part when it becomes really intense and I'd really love to see how well the player can handle it.

Giorgio by Moroder is definitely one of my favorites from the new album, it's just so soothing.
