Oppo HA-1 Impressions Thread - Page 4

Wonderful build quality, solid as a rock!  The interface is very intuitive, no learning curve.  Tons of relay protection going on, dead silence when it should be.  So far I have tried the USB interface with a MacBook Pro running Media Center 19 and the HA-1 handles every type of file I threw at it.  Sound quality is on the money with PM-1's.

This item is definitely on my wish list.  However, as feature packed as it is, there are a few features I would have liked to see:

 

1.  Cross Feed

2.  Adjustable EQ

3.  Phase Invert

Would be cool as a firmware upgrade if they would let you change the color of the VU meters...  It would be nice to have that McIntosh blue/green color to it...     and add the same color to the spectrum display too...

Oh, alternative color schemes is definitely something that has been requested, but at this time we want the HA-1 to be as simple as possible, so what you see is what you get. But the HA-1 does allow for firmware upgrades, so there is a distinct possibility that more features will added through future firmware.

Hastur -

 

Would cross feed, EQ or phase invert - all implemented in the digital domain -- be features that could be added via a firmware upgrade?

The processor in the HA-1 is very limited in its capabilities, so there is a finite amount of functionality that we will be able to add. So I can't guarantee feature that may be added to a future firmware release, but we are definitely taking all recommendations into consideration and will consolidate them into the HA-1 to the best of our ability.

A few true lossless files to test the capabilities. I don't think you can get much better than this site....( its free )

http://www.2l.no/           in the upper right hand corner is the drop down box... click on Test Bench HD      after the page opens up choose the file format you want to test for the song you are going to download...   it will ask you to log in...  just put in 2L  then  2L      the download will start...   after the file gets downloaded just extract the file and use a proper player for playback... for these types of true lossless files I use JRiver Media Center 19

What is nice about those files is the choice of formats and the fact that the recordings have been chosen for testing purposes...   if you hear any issues while playing these files then you need to examine your setup as there is most likely something wrong in your hardware chain... it wont be the file...  

Ill give some of these a try. I've been wondering why some of my downloads from hd tracks don't sound any better than my CD version.

Its not a media player, it is just a headphone amp/DAC/Pre-amp.

Has anyone tried using a high(ish) sensitivity IEM with this yet? Saw some people mention low sensitivity, but mine are rated pretty high and I'm curious how they'd do with this.
