I don't know, but I don't think Hisound should be selling a beta product to consumers.
Cheers.
hey mike , where in asia can u buy the hisound studio ?

They play FLAC just fine, no matter if stock firmware or Rockbox. Some people seem to have good gapless results with the stock firmware and FLAC as well. The stock firmware might drain more battery than Rockbox for FLAC playback. Rockbox is perfectly gapless anyways, with pretty much any format.

Unfortunately Sony don't support any decent formats, they're a bit dumbed down, firmware-wise. I wish there was a Rockbox port for some Sony player, that would be extremely awesome.

The rest of the players I know, Cowon, Samsung, Creative, Trekstor, iPod, Meizu, etc, aren't as faithful as the two above mentioned brands at audio reproduction. They all have more or less flawed DACs, or botched analog output stages. Some of them can be made to sound decent with the help of a dedicated headphone amp, like most Cowon players, for example.
I plan to get hifiman 601, so hifiman 601 isn't a "faithful-to-the-source sounding player" ?

So, if I'm looking for a nicer sq for my sansa clip+ and fuze, which dap should I bought ? or which portable amp ?

Use them with my yuin pk 3 and probably yuin pk1 in the future (plan to get one)

NO IEM, I hate IEMs

My genres are newage, easy listening, symphony metal opera, progessive metal, lounge, spanish guitar, harp

No it isn't. It performs measurably and audibly different than DAPs that cost a fraction of it's price and are superior in just about every other way.

Recent test results and discussion are in the link Marv provided. There's links in that thread to explanations by the maker as to why they consider what they produce is worth the ridiculous price.

None of them convince me in the least. If after reading through that thread and the links included you may decide to buy one anyway. At least you'll be able to make a more informed decision.

Whoops! My bad.

I should have taken a closer look at the thread Marv linked to. The thread I thought he meant is here. The link is in post #11. The linked to explanation is interesting on it's own but the rest of that thread is well worth reading before you make a decision.
