It might be a silly idea but I would love to see a corda Jazz in a portable format. I listed to it and I liked it a little more than classic. The new ff mod has got my attention once more. I am still deciding, honestly Meier Audio amp are no brainer and they sale a lot less than what they can sale for.
I think ultimately is comes down to whether the end users like the forward vocal. For me this is an issue, Shanling has a bit of work to do but it does so many other things right that I can use with no problem such as optical out, stand alone amp and a very good lineout which pairs great with warmer laid back amps.
I had a listen today with the m3 as a stand alone amp feeding my Lotoo PAW Gold. I can say with confidence the amps section of the M3 is top quality, so to me the issue that I am experiencing is perhaps just me not been accustom to the voicing of M3. It is truly unfair for the reviewers to ignore all this features that M3 offers.
We have the ability to isolate the amp section and compare it by itself and I did it and it shined.
I just plugged in a 128 GB microSD...
