In a thread where many have become disenchanted with the M, yours is the first I've seen claiming disenchantment with audiophile DAPs in general. May I ask why? Do you simply see the current offerings as being poor values for the money, or are they lacking specific features you want/need?
I have to admit I've become a little less excited about this particular market segment myself. A $350 X5 might be all I need unless the M is really spectacular in the areas I find most important (SQ, UI).
