    [FiiO M6] Portable High-Resolution Lossless Music Player,Embracing A Wireless Future

    I bought it specifically because I want a separate device from my phone. Couple of reasons - saving the battery on my phone has always been one, and taking a music device on a walk where I'm "off the grid" is another. But a third reason for me is that I know phones are slowly losing their...

    Shanling M0 - Smallest Hi-Res Portable Player - New Firmware V3.6

    If Shanling has a DIY option that would actually be very helpful (and if that already came up on this thread, my apologies btw). I personally haven't seen any YT videos on the subject so where the battery can be bought / is it soldered in / how difficult to remove the faceplate etc. With the...

    [FiiO M6] Portable High-Resolution Lossless Music Player,Embracing A Wireless Future

    Btw, as far as a lack of CPU power, I suppose that's a legit grievance. But given that the last time I attempted an Android DAP was the Cowon D3 this thing flies in comparison to that DAP. I don't really use the Tidal app, although it seems to be acceptable when I kicked the tires a bit...

    [FiiO M6] Portable High-Resolution Lossless Music Player,Embracing A Wireless Future

    It's not as good as I'd like it to be, but I went in knowing that it would be ~12 hours for music playback. And honestly now that I've owned it for a few weeks and kicked the tires, it's not that bad.....easily a full day of usage for me and that's the important thing. The USB-C is a good...

    Shanling M0 - Smallest Hi-Res Portable Player - New Firmware V3.6

    This is my eventual concern with these types of devices. :frowning2: Would be nice to know if there's actually a way to DIY a solution that can be used, that's fairly cheap (I agree...$25 to risk damaging the device on my own doesn't sound appealing, but $25 for a vendor offering would be worth...

    Thanks as well! Looking forward to kicking the tires on this.

    Shanling M0 - Smallest Hi-Res Portable Player - New Firmware V3.6

    Same feelings here and very much appreciated. I am always rethinking my DAP setup and, eventually, I will be retiring my larger players and thanks to the M0 and the updates and support here I will be seriously considering one of those larger devices from them. A Happy New Year to all!

    Shanling M0 - Smallest Hi-Res Portable Player - New Firmware V3.6

    I definitely prefer the lack of stickers - would look gaudy on a player this small.

    Shanling M0 - Smallest Hi-Res Portable Player - New Firmware V3.6

    Nice review and a lot of good points. In particular shoring up the real estate with the left icons as a few extra characters could go a long way. Maybe they can offer a way to turn that off as an option? I don't agree with the larger library though. I have a 200GB microSD in mine now and...

    Shanling M0 - Smallest Hi-Res Portable Player - New Firmware V3.6

    Thanks for the update on the 3.0 firmware on the site being the updated one - figured better safe than sorry. Time for an upgrade now.... :)

    Shanling M0 - Smallest Hi-Res Portable Player - New Firmware V3.6

    Upgraded to 2.5 a few days back (like the clock feature btw) -- but the USB transfer speeds to my microSD, via the player, have dropped to ~500 KB/s on average. Anyone else having this issue? I already tried a reset but no dice, going to drop this back to 2.4 to see what happens. [EDIT] and...

    Shanling M0 - Smallest Hi-Res Portable Player - New Firmware V3.6

    I don't generally use the M0 as a DAC, but just checked my Windows 10 build 1809 system (using the M0 USB driver INF) and it is working (USB/DAC both). I'm on firmware 2.3. Also pulled out my Lubuntu laptop, tried the device there and it's also working fine. Of note is that I'm seeing 24/96...

    Shanling M0 - Smallest Hi-Res Portable Player - New Firmware V3.6

    The time on mine has gotten out of sync at least twice - not sure yet why as I only really notice it when I'm in the gym (I use the device to track the time, while I'm there). Could very well be battery related, where dead battery = time gets out of whack. Easy enough fix though.

    Shanling M0 - Smallest Hi-Res Portable Player - New Firmware V3.6

    Not certain if this was previously stated, or when this occurred, but the M0 has dropped to $99 on Amazon US.

    Shanling M0 - Smallest Hi-Res Portable Player - New Firmware V3.6

    Appreciate the upcoming firmware - when it's ready it's ready. In the meantime it's good as-is. I do wish that someone would make a wrist band though as this thing is perfect for something like that, especially if you're using BT headphones. I've read here that iPod Nano bands might(?) work...

    Disturbed Vinyl Box Set (Limited Edition)

    I'm a fan and even though I went over my budget this month, I did get it.   Cosmetically it's fine except I have a tear on the LP cover for Asylum, so I'll see if the label will help me out with that (it's a fairly large tear, not a small ding).   As for the SQ, I've listened to The Sickness...

    Cowon Z2 (Next Cowon Player?)

    Quote: There's really not much else Cowon can fix, at least performance wise, with the D3.   It's got a 82xx Telechips CPU and 256MB of RAM, which is just pitiful for 2012 (and it wasn't too great for 2011, either - that was strictly 2010 territory, for an Android device).   The...

    Cowon C2 or J3?

    I actually have a D3 (and used to have a D2 and an S9 - never had a J3).   The D3 was definitely "meh" with the original firmware, but the upcoming Gingerbread firmware has a lot to offer, now.  I'm running the 1.5.3 Korean released firmware, right now.   - 24/96 support (no gapless yet). ...

    Flawless albums

    Quote: You need to renegotiate that agreement - how can you do A/B tests on how awesome the vinyl sounds, without the CD source?   I mean it's just common sense, right?

    Who's your least favorite musical artist?

    HATE?    Honestly, that's a tough one.    I am very opinionated individual, and I certainly dislike a great many artists.   But hated takes things to an entirely different level.    The closest that I can come to is any music that is specifically designed to incite hatred and violence...

    Is FLAC worth it..?

    Anything complex will suffer with lossy, even at higher bitrates.  I've found this out recently with vinyl rips, as there is still surface noise even after I remove the pops and clicks. Surface noise is fine, but try compressing that to a 160kps Vorbis file and there will definitely be some SQ...

    Flawless albums

    Quote: Very true.   I usually try to avoid any albums that are less than five years old to be in any any of my "Top Ten" lists, although I made an exception for Fleet Foxes and Shearwater, this time.  The reason is that a new album that I might be enjoying now might not withstand the...

    Flawless albums

    No filler on these, imo.  I can play them from beginning to end and I enjoy each and every track.   Beatles - "Revolver" John Coltrane - "A Love Supreme" Charles Mingus - "The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady" Julian Bream - "Plays Granados and Albeniz"  (not sure if this one fits the...
