Anounced on their facebook page:
 
"Continuing our love of head-fi, we've overcome several difficult design challenges to create this HPA-01M! Pocket sized at 140 x 95 x 17.5 mm, it marks our smallest amplifier ever produced. We put exactly the same HPA-01 circuit inside that everybody loves and with its internal Li-ion rechargeable batteries, you can carry it anywhere and enjoy our current and voltage driving technologies, up to 10 hours!!"
 


 
This will be perfect for the Hugo :D

Weird looking thing, but I've read nothing but good about the other bakoon amp. IIRC, this is overkill for IEMS?

Looks Great Michael
Now I own Bakoon japan HDA 5520 look classical design
The Bakoon international Korea HPA 01 M look modern design

Sofar my Bakoon HDA 5520 is one of my best sounding amp .
Can drive from iem to hard to drive headphone like abyss 1266

I am waiting my friend will import this Bakoon International HPA 01 M and will compare these two amps






Size Comparison Bakoon HDA 5520 with others amps
Ko Jo KM 01 > mass ko Bo > Wagnus epsilon S > Bakoon HDA 5520

For lower tier IEMs, most likely.
For TOTL IEMs, probably not due to scalability.

I have a gut feeling that the larger Bakoon HDA-5520 will have better SQ than the smaller Bakoon HPA-01M.

From the thread Bakoon HPA - 01 their desktop amp look like not do big power , I got the feeling like you Zach the portable version HPA - 01 M could be has smaller power
Who know ? :D

It's not that the Wagnus could not 'improve' on the Hugo, but rather it was a combination of poor synergy & the hugo's poor line out (not even a true line out either) imo. It's not the wagnus' fault.
 
But I am very curious as to how this amp & the eventual cavalli portable amp will compare with the wagnus.
