Not all of the AV at CES 2014 is ginormous. HiFiMAN is looking to put killer audio into your pocket.
The company just introduced the HM-802 Reference Music Player. Designed as a descendant of the company’s HM-901, the HM-802 has new features and a new (lower!) price.
The HM-802 uses a Wolfson WM8740 Dual DAC chip to crank audiophile-quality sound from this compact package. Otherwise, the HM-802 has the same user interface, the same step attenuator, and the same rugged design as its predecessor.
Promising upsampling to 24/192, the HM-802 also accepts most lossless audio formats and offers input/output and USB decoding through optional docking station.
The HM-802 is selling now, with an MSRP of $699.
