They have not solved the main issue with 901 which is that the AK players are twice as sexy. Plus I am a bit wary about downgrading the DAC.

It seems to be just a casing upgrade (new color, more precise molding, better wheels) plus minor power mgmt changes and better firmware, with mostly identical signal processing and sq....

Yes. My folder tree is organized like this:
Genres > Artists > Albums > Tracks

I guess Fang may have finally realised how ugly the original 901 was, since he said in his "weibo" (microblog) that the industrial design of the 901s will be a "great leap forward" lol
