FWIW, I had time to evaluate the HM-901 and other DAPs. I found its dual dac 9018 implementation offered zero aavantages IMO.
On the other hand, I feel that light harmonic's implementation of the mobile 9018 far exceeds any dap I've heard. Idk what they did, but it made me a believer.
You know why? One chip has 8 channels. One is more than enough.
I dunno, so far I'm been disappointed with the mobile version. You are talking about the geek 1000? I don't know when they are going to release that. I like to know if the mobile version is on par with the non-mobile. So far, non-mobile to me is suprieror sonically. I've tried the LO of DX90 which contain the mobile version.
I think the non-mobile implementation probably makes the device bulky like the DX100 or the HM-901. Personally, I would like to avoid iriver.
