The designers may have made the button shape more unique than this (for easier touch-differentiation in one's pocket), but here's an approximate guess of what the button layout may look like, based upon the latest description provided on facebook:

3100 mha battery and the playback time is only 7-10 hours? May be the chip processor that takes lots of juice in decoding?

I have a question, if anyone knows the answer or see it in Facebook page please share it here.

 

I got that this M:USE is going to be a killer UI but does it allow folder view/playback (with gapless)?

Most likely they wanna limit those early bird deals to local addresses for good reasons, they don't have to deal with international shipping / support etc. when they're just working on the very first batch of a brand new product.

 

30% off 995,000 KRW really is a smoking hot deal when we consider what's happening lately and our own niche market for such fantastic sounding DAP / USB DAC should be gaining momentum for sure.

 

That's pretty much like giving us this 256GB SDXC card for free when we get in the line before the Black Friday + Cyber Monday madness begins, LOL

Gapless is supported according to the previous post so I assume folder view is possible.Calyx will compeate right with Astell and Kern looks like :)

I don't know if I'd go that far, the M has had a function dichotomy which is now making it look less of an AK240 as it was initially. They start looking like different daps with different internal implementation, hard to compare.

I am okay with this thing now, this doesn't look like my earlier statement of a ipod touch with an expensive dac/amp . This is shaping up to be a good player , its amazing how the addition of those small features like the slots and the track buttons changed my mind

 

This would prolly compete with the ZX1 that have pretty much the same form factor and features , with the added benefit of sd card slots and "better" dac with higher pricing

Maybe it is! smily_headphones1.gif

I am OK with this to... I think it looks like an exciting new product that warrants a close look, more so than any other DAP that I know of (at least for my purposes). I continue to think of this as a possible "do it all" source for me (travel, work, home, etc...) so I have not been concerned about storage or wifi or digital out... I am only concerned with HO and the fact that HO will also be the de-facto LO.  So for me, I need this unit to at least keep up with Bifrost Uber from DAC to LO, and in terms of HO, at least work really well with headphones that are reasonably efficient and easy to drive (I don't do IEMs).

 

If the Calyx M can do that, then I am ready to pull the trigger and the only thing left to do will be to find a great desktop amp to pair with it for running more demanding headphones or just raising the bar in general for the amp section.  I continue to be of the belief that portable dacs can slay dragons and punch well above their weight, but that portable amps crammed into the same chassis can not... so that is the only limitation I will be concerned about assuming everything else (general design, build quality, UI, DAC, and HO/LO) turns out as great as we are expecting it to.

 

I guess the value proposition for me is this:  If it performs in the general ballpark of a 4-500 dollar DAC, then the extra 5-600 dollars is probably worth it for all the other features/capabilities... If I still feel like a need to get a desktop DAC, then maybe I am better off staying with my laptop as my library and source and focusing my dollars on desktop DAC and amp.  I won't make a decision until the end of this year,  so hopefully the Calyx M is well distributed and reviewed by then, with lots of owners posting here as to their experience.

I have to say, even given everything I just said in my post above... If Calyx said give me $700 right now and in a few months I will send you the product, I would probably take one for the team and get it and hope for the best, and then I would be one of the guys sharing feedback on the unit.
