@Blazer39 Currently my grado headband is on my SennGrado, but perhaps I should pick up a cheap alternative headband for the SR80i.  If I find an inexpensive one on Amazon and get it in soon I'll let you know how they pair with the M1.

post #2327 of 2356

The real problem with the M1 is that the output is just loud enough for headphones like Audeze Sine or Audeze EL-8 which were suppose to be driven ''easily'' by portable...but reality is not the case at all!!! M1+Mojo, now we're talking!!!! For me, it's almost the only reason to own a M1 or for very very portable with iem.

Nobody has been hiding the power output which is not particularly high.  35mw.

That sounds terrible! 4-month delivery so far! Did you contact Aliexpress? The seller (who was it)? Your credit card company?

I contacted AliE last month and just got a refund few days ago. this was my first time buying from them and its a +/- experience. I think someone here posted that a Canadian online retailer is selling it and might just try ordering it from them.

has anyone try comparing the sony a30 series to this? i already have the a30 but i really want to know how it compares to M1.

Candy;

 

I don't have experience with the Sony   But I would like to note that this is a really good entry level hifi unit.  Much better than your phone, but your expectations should be moderate compared with other more expensive units.

Guys,

Anyone else here (aside from one M1 user that I've noted) that has paired the M1 with a portable amp (double amping) - instead of pairing it with a dac-amp like a Mojo?
I am wondering if double amping have a negative effect towards the sound

What are you driving that you think needs more power? It's a very clear dac I imagine double amping wouldn't be terrible with this unit but I haven't tried. it drives my TH-X00 fine I don't feel like need a amp.

I've tried it with several different amps and so far it hasn't affected the sound in any negative way.  Ramp the volume on the M1 to 100 and control the output on your amp.

A lot of times double amping causes distortion but I haven't experienced it with this dap.

I do have both, if you only use the M1 as a standalone player, the Sony A35 is much much better. More power from the output and I prefer the sound signature much better. But if you plan to use the M1 as a transport, it wins hands down by far over the Sony because of all the hassle with digital out of the Sony!!!

Well I dont need more power, I just want to get the sound characteristic of the amp while still be able to control music via the M1

Hi
I have some questions.
Is Shanling M1 is a bit perfect player when is used with external DAC?

Do femto clocks have an impact on the transmission of data to an external USB DAC?

Is when connected to an external USB DAC Shanling M1 is a better option than a smartphone with USB Audio Player Pro (bitperfect soft)?

Sorry for my english.

Best regards.

M

Would you say the m1 sounds better than an HTC 10 or LG v20?. Those of you who have these phones
