Innovative look maybe. There is nothing new, not even the price though you may get more features than the other dap that has almost none but is around 2400 dollars. And if the dacs they used sound great, all the more surprise and fine with me but how much better had they used even better dacs.
Nothing new? Hmm, I am not aware of any other portable DAP that can stream music from another source or download directly from dedicated icons that go direct to the download site. Perhaps I have missed something there, please correct me if i have.
I would call that feature an innovation if you go by the definition in the Oxford English Dictionary..
Oh, and does the 901 do DSD in native form? If not then that is another innovation the 240 has over other portable DAP's. I believe as well the 240 does both resolutions of DSD, does the 901?
