How good is its amp power?

It's pretty powerful, even the HE500 can sound very loud at about 4-5 volume setting in high gain. Even K701 and HD800 sound pretty nice w/ the stock amp card. Of course they deserve more powerful amps to sound their best.

@fengwei007 thanks for your impression. Does the new firmware still chop the first seconds of a track, like the 901 with the old firmware did?

Hmm, I never noticed that. But for me it's never a big deal even on 901. First a few seconds doesn't really matter much to me.

I'm surprised this isn't even available for purchase on hifiman's website yet. It's really a very good buy considering it's in the same price range as DX90/X5. Anyway, hope more guys would have chance playing this one soon :)
. Just available this morning , i've pull the trigger right away , will received the beast next week , i hope .

From what I gather, this is better than the dx90....may actually buy this by end of day today.

Hifiman players are all overall a bit warm sounding, with the HM901 the least warm (compared with other Hifiman players). HM650 is probably somewhere between the 901/802. And of course the amp cards play big part in the final sound. 

Among all the amp cards I've used, I think the current classic-II card is a bit warmer than the rest (Balanced, IEM, Minibox, Discrete). It's a very good quality card, I think most users would be happy w/ it. The other thing I like the HM650/Classic-II combo is the play time per charge. It lasts much longer than HM901 even w/o amp card (use LO out to connect to other amp). 
. What do you mean about Discrete card , i don't see on Hifiman's catalogue , just : Balance , IEM , or Minibox . have buy mine with the Minibox , it seems that it is better than the Standart one .

It's an amp card developed and made by a hm901 user in China. He only made about 200 pieces, all sold out as far as I know. The only way to get it is from second hand market. Current market price is about 190-200USD.
