The more I use the new card, the more I like it. It really does many things right. I just got the Foxtex TH900 and it does a great job with them.

How's the play on the pot with the TH-900 on that card?

Fine no noticeable problems. The graduations work well.

Enjoying the heck out of the new card with the Fostex TH900. It drives them very well sounding open, dynamic and clean. Well controlled bass and depth. Nothing overwhelming just in the right balance.

Hi there, 
 
Just adding my 2 cents on the topic.
 
I fully agree with what have been so far by Jamato. I have tested the AK100 and AK120 for my french web-zine, and I used to love my HM-801 and my HM-601 very much. I also tried for a long time Colorfly C4 pro and CK4, and i also love my little Hisound audio Studio V despite its somewhat ****ty OS ;)
 
The HM-901, is the perfect partner for my earsonics IEM EM2 and EM6. It's slightly on the warm side, but incredibly 'musical'. It's able to bring life in everything you throw at it. Way beyond the slightly metallic and edgy souding of the AK100 and AK120 (though I love their UI and form factor).
 
The main weaknesses of the HM901 are : 
 
- You could say that sometimes, for heavy styles of musics it's a bit too warm (speed metal for example)
- You could find that other DAP are more "Airy" and gives you a wider headroom
- The ergonomy is not that great and the UI is not sexy (but it works ... !)
- 9/10 hours of battery is fair but ... compared to iRivers ...  
 
As a conclusion, this is a great DAP, with a splendid contrast, a beautiful tone, and a sense of musicality you'll be craving for. 
Definitely a keeper for me if you can afford the 1000€ (for us in Europe :)

The complete test is there if you wanna have a peek.

The review doesn't really make sense if you don't make clear which amplifier card was used. :confused:

Or did I just miss that part in the review? or was it the one pictured?

If referring to what I wrote or the post right above you it is the new card that will be stock with the 901, a discrete card. I don't have an image of it. It is single ended and does a very good job conveying the music.

From what I have read on Hifiman customer service posting on erji.net, I thought the Classic card is going to be the stock card for now?

Sorry Jamato,  I was discussing bigtonio's review. 

post #1587 of 2917

Hi,

 

Absolutly, we used that nice "balanced card" designed for the HM-901. With balanced "mode" for RE-600, and "normal" mode for others headphones (to be clear we did not like the RE-600, that's why we did not mention it in our testing).

 

Regards.

I got the new standard card. It fits great now. No problems at all.

How do you compare the new standard card with the old one? Do you think that the new one is better?
