That's an interesting design. I almost thought they were trying to portray a flip phone look with that little "hinge" structure centred in the middle of the DAP.

Interesting, but not overly so.

News update: The 2nd player is called HM-802. For those who keep track on DAP news, we had seen this name being rumored to be HM-901's name. Now it is actually adopted as the new player name. No picture or any detail yet

Thanks for the news. This is much more interesting.

I guess it will be something in the direction of dual TI pcm dacs or something capable of dsd.

If the HM-802 performance and HW specs matches that of the latest HM-801, but in a chassis the size of the HM-60x Slim series, and with a good size internal storage (above 16GB), I'm sold.  I must one of the few that actually like the size, look , and feel of the HM-60x series.  It has a very nostalgic look. Although, I've long wished to have the D-pad (play, pause..) replaced with actual buttons placed on the side of the unit next to the gain switch.

If HM802 has the DAC and amp section / module of HM801, but runs on the HM901's SoC, then I will call it a win. Of course I do agree a better arranged buttons will also be great.

next year is going to be a great year for us portaphile. I think I am going to save and watch head-fi carefully. My heart wants the high end sony DAP but my mind is telling me best is to wait it out and see which DAP comes out victorious.

I'm not sure the words 'Head-Fi' and 'waiting' can be used together in the same sentence.

A few more confirmed spec on HM700: Built-in 32GB storage, no expansion slot, full balanced output, RE400 as stock IEM.

 

UNconfirmed: Price is about $245, or about $490 with RE600.

128 GB is good for me, I will probably buy this as I believe this will be a milestone for sony in years to come. It might be the device (just like their cassette player) that many will look back to with great nostalgia. 

I just hope pricejapan can send it to me.

32gb is a little depressing but really good pricing with bundled iems.
