I am looking forward to a shootout of the Shanling M1, M2, M2s, and the Cayin N3.    Somehow I am guessing the Cayin will have a similar sound signature to the M2s.  So it may come down to preferred user interface.   The Cayin does play native ISO files, which is a cool feature for me.

I am currently in Red - Black with the LZ-A4.   I find these are like a version of the Lz-A2 but on steroids.  Similar low end; much better high end.  For the money they rock; but I still think the FLC8S is a step up; but that step up comes at a price.

I would choose N3 over M2s, no matter how M2s looks nice. The 4.8 ohm output impedance of M2s is a deal breaker for me. Especially when you try low impedance iems like FLC8s.

Well, sometime in the next few weeks, when the M2s is shipped & received, I'll be able to compare its sound to my N3 - using various 12Ω - 32Ω earphones, and 16Ω - 500Ω earbuds - to find out how much audible difference in Bass impact & quality the higher output impedance makes.
