All I've heard is that it will be android based. Probably not out anytime soon though.

definitely not soon, they're running polls on weight and price at the moment

D&A showing off their Calyx M DAC function. I wonder if this screen will stay lit all the time and if it'll be able to charge while in that mode.

Did anyone else notice that Calyx quietly increased the weight of the M from an initial 160g to a whopping 230g?

 

Probably a bigger battery.

 

I only noticed when James (Fiio) asked about user requirements for a new X7

Yeah when I have time I will jump to that thread too. I found James's attitude and his will to help to customers, satisfy them as much as possible is very nice. There are not many people around here like James.

they are few and far between, but would, in my experience, include Dan from Mr Speakers, Jason from Schiit and Michael from Centrance, all of whom have responded to the community at large and me personally during my audiophile development...

Maybe Calyx has finally added a true LO AND a digital out?

 

j/k :biggrin:

I made a Calyx M enclosure mock-up just to have a feel of its size and to compared it with my DX50 and iPhone 5s. Initially I was quite worried about the size, I don't want to haul a large player around. 

Having checked out its dimensions I think it's not bad at all but the 230 g might make it feel heavy. I guess next I should add 230 g of metal in there. :D

Quite like your user interface as well, is that an e-ink display?
