    AAW x Shozy Pola and Pola 39 Tour

    Pola 39 are a significant improvement over the lower-end Pola. Sense of space is dramatically increased which is a needed at this price point. Bass has better speed and resolution but doesn't perform as well as I'd like with electronic music, lacking adequate sub-bass response for proper...

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    I also need gapless for many albums and can only see using the Prime mode after gapless is implemented. It's a shame because I find the Shanling app sounds best out of the various music apps I use (Neutron, Poweramp, and UAPP), but I'm basically forced to use those so I'm not distracted by gaps...

    AAW x Shozy Pola and Pola 39 Tour

    Hi all. Just got the tour kit, thoroughly cleaned the IEMs and tips I'll be using and started listening to POLA out of Shanling M6 using UAPP. Put on Rush's Moving Pictures 2015 remaster with extended dynamic range which usually has very good soundstage and am feeling underwhelmed so far. POLA...

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    No problem streaming with Google Play Music, Qobuz, and Tidal through their respective apps or through UAPP on my M6 (international version). Lovely sound the the price! @Shanling Any update on when we can expect gapless or update to next Android version?

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    Thanks for the quick reply @Shanling. I tried that yesterday before posting, but it didn't do anything. As a follow-up, there was no change this morning. Red light is still on. M6 is still unresponsive. Force restart still doesn't do anything. Anything else you can think of that might help? We...

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    I haven't yet, but I'm considering doing a trade with an old headfi buddy who just purchased an R5 so we can each do an A/B comparison and see which we prefer. For myself, I'm already highly impressed with the smooth, warm-ish, enveloping sound of my M6. The descriptions I've heard of the R6...

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    Just checked, and mine is indeed showing this. I just wasn't playing music with the Shanling player last time so it didn't show up. Thanks!

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    I've got to say that M6 with the Shanling app has a great sound signature. Very smooth yet with good dynamics. Just missing gapless playback. Fingers crossed that's added soon!

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    I'm on International Firmware and had already manually set my time zone, so that's not the reason for the self correction. I'm any case, I'm glad it corrected! Will reset M6 and try again with Neutron. Imagine it'll be just fine after that.

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    Not sure what happened, but I started up the M6 this morning to take a picture and the time and date are now displayed as I would've expected on the lockscreen. Not sure how that was corrected with no intervention on my part, but I'll take it! Seems like I'm using 64-bit version of Neutron and...

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    A few issues I'm seeing on M6 with FW 2.74 are... 1. On the lockscreen I have time in 24-hour format even though I set time to be in 12-hour format 2. On the lockscreen the date is displayed as 1 day ahead and the year is in Chinese characters. For instance it's 1/9 (January 9) today, however...

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    Thanks for the comments. Even if from memory, they're still helpful. That matches up with what I've learned about the two. It seemed like R5 would be too thin/cold for my taste, so I went for the M6. I imagine it'll sound quite good with IT03 + Ares II Balanced. :vulcan:

    Could you provide a brief sound signature/quality comparison for Hiby R5 vs Shanling M6 @Nayparm?

    Happy New Year fellow Shanling fans!!! The good, I ordered an M6 plus silicone and leather cases. Woohoo! The bad, the multifunction wheel on my old M3s started malfunctioning, so I ordered a replacement which arrived yesterday. Unfortunately, the screen was really stuck and the cables...

    Ordering an M6 from my man Andrew at MusicTeck. Will report back with my thoughts once I've received it. In the meantime, can someone please help me get the leather case? I don't see any for purchase in the US...

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    You're quite the Shanling enthusiast! A bit off-topic for the thread, but I'm wondering what Bluetooth connection your phone supports. I'm using OnePlus 7 Pro Tidal to UP4 via LDAC, and it sounds quite impressive for such a small device!

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    It's been a long time away for me. Nice to see several people I used to chat with still hanging around! I'm a huge fan of Shanling. Personally think they make the best bang for your buck DAPs, and I'm very tempted by the M6 but want to ask if the gapless issue has been sorted out yet. If not...

    Meze 99 Classics Discussion + Impressions Thread

    My thoughts echo what @Bansaku said above as pointed out in a post earlier in this thread (LINK). Personally I found 99 Neo's warmer, more spacious sound signature really went well with electronic, classic rock, and metal.
