Just to check you didn't unzip the file first - it should be in the folder and not unzipped ?

Another thought is to re-download the update.zip file as an incomplete file may also be a cause....

So you mean you successfully entered the firmware update screen but it didn't complete?  Try restarting into the update mode and see if it works.  If not maybe try a different SD card (smallest one you can find

I reloaded the software on the PC side of my apple and it works. Go figure. Thanks for suggestions.

I can't I have actually timed it but I listen to the HE-500 on off in the office and I have never gone beyond the half battery full icon. Sorry I can't be more precise: but what it means is that the HM-901 is still running when I leave the office at the end of the day.

You couldn't have been more evasive but thanks anyway.:D

I am sure it would be much appreciated if you could run a rough test to have an idea how many hours that would be.

Heheh! One day I'll bring the HE-500 home and run down the HM-901.

Today I noticed channel reversal that I recall was mentioned earlier in the thread.  Near the beginning of Steely Dan's "Babylon Sisters" there's a little percussion part that I always hear in the left channel.  This time I noticed it in the right channel.  I'm not sure if this has always been occurring and I never noticed or if it's a new development.  It's a little bit of a bummer.  I'm using IEM card - balance/normal switch doesn't make a difference.

Just did a little test - turned the unit off/on and the channel's are correct. That's good but I'm still concerned that there's an issue that needs to be addressed.

I also experienced channels reversed, however only once. It was reversed both headphone out and line out, which bothered me, but since I haven't noticed is since then, I haven't gone through any research process to find out what caused it.

I think that, affecting the amplified and unamplified outputs, it's likely a software issue.

That's also my assumption.

I think the 901 is just better as my AK120 is also better. I chose the AK due to it's quality, size, storage, build and best UI but I really liked the 901 very much when I heard it. Studio is a great little device that does music really well but I prefer the other 2 at twice(+) the price. I really enjoy and am keeping the Anniversary 3 but...

 

It wouldn't surprise me one bit if the Anv 3 still was more involving than these recent, cheaper HiDef players but it isn't up to the current flagships from A/K and HiFiman.

Is there anyone using a case to protect the 901? I couldn't find anything about this. This is such an expensive DAP and I would prefer to have some kind of protection. Any suggestions?

I went to my camera store and just bought the Tamrac 5691 Digital Photo Bag. It's the perfect size for the unit and it has a separate zipper compartment to fit a second battery perfectly.

It is not recommended due to heat dissipation / lack of ventilation.  There are some third party cases but all of them IMHO look hideous....  some samples for you:

 

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 80

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 80

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 80

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 80
