I recived my Shanling m2 yesterday. I have never heard portable device sounding well like this! I have had many different daps : iriver clix2, sansa fuze, sansa clip+, iriver H320, colorfly c3 and the last was samsung ygh-925. All of them had not punchy bass, sharp midldes, and natural sound as M2!
I also listened modern players like Fiio x3, x3-2, x5-2, dx90, mae8....What can i say? I don`t like how mae8 sounds at all(It is very dark for me. But i fell it is high range sounding product). I do not like ibasso`s cold sound signature also. x5-2 sounds good for me. His little brother - sounds simplistically, poor and compressed.
That is all about anothers:) I totaly loved shanling m2! His sound rank for me near the x5-2. But it has more agression and attack. I don`t want to say - it is agressive. I say - well balanced, natural sound! Midrange has got crisp and powerfull attack at Marc Ribot`s guitar in Ceramic Dog album Your Turn. I hear size (volume) and material of snare-drum in O`o by John Zorn. I have never heard so mach detalization before!
Couple words about design. I love the things done with the soul. But i have thought this things has gone almost all early 2000. I was wrong :) Yesterday i felt long-forgotten feeling of "soul thing" ^^.
Thank your, Shanling!
I have a trouble with DAC mode. My windows 10 can not finish install process and m2 don`t work as a DAC. Could you make the drivers for WIN10, please?
I have already instaled new FW . Control wheel works better. It became more sensitive. As i am rockbox and last.fm user i have one Christmas wish for Shanling :). Could you make scrobbling support if it possible? I have last.fm profile since 2009. http://www.last.fm/user/MeMagus Player has to do .scrobbler.log file for scrobbling. I have got this file from my previous player, but i could not recognize the file structure. http://www.rockbox.org/wiki/LastFMLog - list of avalible programs for reading such type of file (.scrobbler.log). Link with structure of file does not. I have asked about structure on another forum. If you will vote possibility of implimentation as probable i do everything possible with my hand.
I am able to help with implementation (translation) to russian for FW too.
