The Sword is not necessarily an invincible hand, and the late HiFiMAN leader MegaMini Xiaoqiang North American version of the portable lossless music player evaluation

In fact, this assessment was prepared as early as the year before, but the final stage of lazy cancer, plus a bunch of things after the year before, is the result of delays!

Saying that I recently had a very intimate preparation for the writing template, then simply follow the template to write it.

Reasons to purchase

In fact, Hifiman is also considered to be famous!

After all, in addition to flying proud in the country, Hifiman is also considered to be a representative of the “reliable” of the national brick industry. Especially after the Super Mini Super Mini came out, it really made people feel that Nankai Rice also started playing “black technology”. However, there is no difficult to push high resistance big ears, so 4 +4 8 op amp configuration is really useless. At this time, Super Mini's "little younger brother" Mega Mini also came out, so he didn't get tangled and picked up one to taste the "crab."

Headman (HiFiMAN) Megamini Super Mini strong North American version portable lossless music player Hi-Fi MP3 HIFI Walkman support DSD1699 yuan MegaMini "Small North American version" supports most lossless music playback including WAV, FLAC, and supports DSD format files, Up to 256GB of memory card is used to store approximately 8,000 CD-quality lossless music. Its volume is 10 × 4.3 × 0.9cm, weight 69g, aluminum alloy shell material, CNC integrated molding, silver body stylish, generous, strong texture. Color LED Jingdong direct link View Encyclopedia

The structure of the two brothers SuperMini and MegaMini is quite interesting. According to the official statement, the traditional "master + DAC + operational amplifier" routine is not adopted. Instead, the "master + DAC" is directly integrated with its own custom programming chip. It is said that this way is not only more power-efficient, but also more efficient in the implementation of the operation, but whether it leads to better sound quality, this must be heard before they know.

This test measures the rewrite experience and the sound quality section, so I will simply talk about the out-of-box section.

Appearance Gallery

The MegaMini's packaging is very simple. In addition to the small, compact white box, there is only one data cable, one warranty card, and one product selling point. However, Hifiman sent an extra 32G TF card, but unfortunately it was an ordinary C4.

MegaMini's volume control is very good, compared with my commonly used iPod touch (6 generations), significantly smaller circle, and weighs only 56 grams, basically nothing in the hand.

Appearance generally continues the original HM700 style, but canceled below the touch panel, in the preservation of the waist of the four main control buttons, the volume adjustment and power button are placed in the left and right sides of the fuselage.

MegaMax has a 2 inch color LCD screen compared to Big Brother. However, the main UI found in actual use is still black-and-white. Only when playing songs with some embedded CD covers will people realize that it is in color. of.

In addition, MegaMini has eliminated the balanced headphone jacks of the HM700 and Big Brother, and replaced it with an ordinary 3.5mm standard audio interface, which is located along the TF card slot and the Micro USB transfer/charge port at the bottom of the fuselage.

The four main control buttons at the waist correspond to two short and long press function modes, corresponding to:

Return key: (short press) to return to the previous menu; (long press) to play/menu interface switch

<Key: Plays a song (short press) on the playback interface (plays back more than 3 seconds to replay the current song), (long press) rewinds; scrolls upward in the menu screen <p="">

> Key: under the play interface (short press) the next song, (long press) is fast forward; the menu interface is downward scroll

O key: Under play interface (short press) is play/pause, (long press) call out loop play/shuffle menu; menu interface is to confirm/enter the next menu

Appearance may be about this, followed by Tucao ... should say that use part of the feeling.

experience feelings

The operation logic of the MegaMini is not complicated, and the threshold for learning is very low. Even a child or an elderly person can get started in a short period of time.

However, when it comes to using the experience, it's really necessary to give it a try.

The first is that the operation response is very slow, from the press of the power button to the screen light up, in the middle probably need to wait 2 to 3 seconds, and the switch between menus also feel there is a pause of about 1 second. And the control logic requires that all operations must be performed after the screen lights up, that is, whether it is to adjust the volume level, or cut songs, play/pause before and after, need to wait for the machine to react, it happens to me It is used by Apple's fluent manipulations, so it is very uncomfortable.

Secondly, the switch between songs is also very slow. After a song is played, there will be about 2 seconds of waiting when jumping to the next song. If you just listen to a single, it is not a big problem, but when you listen to some coherent operas or soundtracks, it will make you feel that you have been interrupted. At first, I thought it was caused by a large file format such as DSD, but later I discovered that even some small APE or FLAC formats are the same, even if the SanDisk Ultra high-speed TF card is still used, it is obviously the main control is not awesome. The reason is!

In addition, official propaganda says that almost all mainstream audio formats and bitrates are being used, but in actual tests, the legendary master-class 1.33G size, WAV format "California Hotel", the machine directly said that does not support the file format, in addition to Audio files with CUE tracks cannot be tracked.

However, although I was given three consecutive big points, the experience of using the Mega Mini is not terribly bad. Both the stability and ease of use of the system are in place, and the body life is also so small. Ideally, if you just play an ordinary 44.1,48 kHz audio file, you can achieve a nominal 15-hour battery life; if you play a DSD file, the power consumption speed will be faster, but it can also support about 8 hours of continuous playback .

And the compact body is also convenient to go out on weekdays, or directly plug the arm with the inside while listening to music, but if you can join the Bluetooth audio transmission function, it is even more perfect ~!

Metaphysical Listening

The MegaMini wasn't sold with headphones, so I selected a few different styles of headphones to test.

The Ditan Titan 5 is the only Hi-res certified on hand, and the overall quality is comparable to the infamous GR07 series in domestically produced headsets at 500 yuan; the innovative AURVANA AIR is a well-known and well-known one in the flat earbud industry. As for the big ears, the innovative AURVANA Live!2 and the Philips shp9500 are notorious cabbage artifacts. For comparison, I used the iPod touch (6th generation) and the Clarity Feather external audio decoder (support Hi-res and DSD hard solutions), and I also used LH's GO2 PRO decoding/amplifier.

Subjective hearing:

The MegaMini gives people a feeling that the sound style is warm, and the low frequencies are thick and full, and the high frequencies are relatively convergent, with a very obvious tuning style. In particular, listening to the "boiled water" used in Apple's equipment, all of a sudden conversion into this warm-sounding style is somewhat unaccustomed. However, after listening to it for some time, I feel that the vocal performance is still good, there is a certain tendency of "female poison".

High frequency performance:

The pursuit of warm sound seems to be HiFiman's usual style, and there is a certain convergence inhibition in the high-frequency resolution and detail performance, so it will be relatively weak in the performance of some instrumental music that emphasizes high frequency extension. And MegaMini will have a significant depression in a certain frequency band of the secondary high frequency, which results in the smooth convergence between the intermediate frequency and the high frequency, especially when performing some young female voices, it may appear that the high pitched part is a bit abrupt.

Compared with iPod touch, MegaMini has some advantages in high-frequency sound density and better controllability. Even when using a headset that is too bright, such as the Titan 5, the tooth sound problem will have some convergence. . Of course, compared to the combination of an independent external DAC + amp, the MegaMini's high frequencies are still quite different in terms of density, quality, and upward scalability. Especially when driving a relatively large eating force in the big ears to listen to some of the more complex music, the lack of output power of the MegaMini makes the high frequencies further stretched, and the overall sound performance becomes even more crowded.

IF performance:

The MegaMini's midrange performance is the most moderate and desirable in the three-band. The sound performance is full and full of layers. It doesn't have the kind of cocoon's thin and dry feeling. The dynamic performance is delicate and smooth, especially in terms of vocal performance. In response to this, I specially exchanged the treasured MDR-E888SP for listening, whether it was listening to Faye Wong’s “The Sky” (2.8MHz DSD), Hand Kwai's “Amazing Grace” (44.1kHz/16bit WAV), or Leong Fish The "Ningxia" (192kHz/24bit FLAC) has a good female charm.

In terms of transient performance, MegaMini will be relatively slow, so when people express some fast-paced and large-scale dynamics, they will feel a lack of explosiveness. And with the low-frequency over-reliance, it is easy to be overshadowed by the low frequency of the sense of a lot, so we should avoid the headphones that emphasize the foot. (So ​​the following pair is not ideal)

Low frequency performance:

The amount of more, especially when paired with Titan5, Live!2, these two low-frequency headphones are relatively bright and relaxed style, MegaMini will give people a feeling of too abundance. The deficiencies in the MegaMini's thrust, although it can obtain sufficient loudness when driving Live!2, but it is easy to run out of the loose low frequency when dealing with some big dynamics. Of course, when the low frequency MDR-E888SP is relatively "disabled," or the SHP9500 with its high-middle and high-frequency sounds, the MegaMini is perfectly matched, which not only highlights the emotional atmosphere, but also makes the tri-band performance more balanced.

The MegaMini's low-frequency submarine depth is generally low, and the low-frequency submarine will decay after reaching a certain depth, so that the low frequency is concentrated in a relatively shallow part, which is why the “mass” is the main reason why people feel it. And in terms of transient performance, the MegaMini always gave me the impression that it wasn't fast enough, even when paired with Titan5's titanium-coated metal diaphragm, it didn't show the kind of "strong" strength. However, this is also good, the T5, which has always been fierce, has finally become relatively resistant. It would be a good thing to think about it.

However, it must be pointed out that the noise floor of the MegaMini seems to be a bit obvious, particularly evident when paired with the T5, and it is possible to hear continuous low-frequency noise without the need to be too quiet. In contrast, the iPod touch sounds much cleaner. Even if the GO2 PRO with its own Class A amplifier is under high thrust, the MegaMini's noise floor is still particularly noticeable.

However, in other respects, compared with the iPod touch, although the MegaMini’s tri-band has obvious artificial adjustments and trade-offs, it has considerable advantages in terms of sound quality and density, which is not difficult to drive. This is particularly noticeable with low-resistivity ear plugs.

As for the combination of a digital turntable + mini DAC like the iPod touch + Clarity Feather, the MegaMini has a slight advantage in terms of quality, mainly in terms of sound atmosphere, while the Clarity Feather's high frequency is a bit rough. However, it maintains a relatively rapid momentum and will not be as "warm" as the Mega Mini.

Compared with the LH GO2pro external decoder/amp portable all-in-one portable DAC, the latter uses the ESS9018AQ2M DAC chip + A amplifier combination is almost a victory over the MegaMini, but considering this level of DAC plus as a digital Turntable's iPod touch, only about 1 / 3 of the price of MegaMini actually lose it. Not to mention the use of the scene, MegaMini will be more suitable for use in daily mobile scenarios, can not be described as advantages.

to sum up

In fact, MegaMini's positioning is totally different from its "big brother" SuperMini. It is aimed at the listening needs of the average consumer. It has good value and easy operation, as long as you are not too picky about your ears, or you have to use them for matching. HDMG such as the upper grade, MegaMini would be a good choice.

However, in the current DAC, op amp, and amp chips are relatively mature and increasingly popular, whether it is necessary to independently develop an integrated decoder chip, I have reservations about this. After all, the MegaMini did not reflect the “black technology” that Hifiman claimed at the time, compared to the current solution that is commonly seen on the market, but it was a bit of a disadvantage in terms of handling response and sound quality.

What's more, now that the 1,000 yuan or so audio player has begun to popularize high-end DAC chips like the ESS9018K2M, the MegaMini official has sold 1,699 yuan. How many people will pay for it?
