    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    Correct, I use the timers to let it stand by and then go off to avoid putting stress in the volume wheel, this works after I stop the music at the set time. but my unit goes OFF even when playing music... any other advise?

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    thanks Shanling, I can`t wait to test my DSD and ISO files; I should now be able to really tell if dsd provides a better sound quality (i.e. vs red book). I think SACD or DSD files come from a better mastering process, therefore leading to better sound overall, but the factor is not the...

    I use Fiio FH7, these are amazing, paired with M6 is close to perfection, based on your taste I think you will enjoy them, $449. Order a balance cable too. I do not think M6 support MQA, but i can not be 100% sure. personally I´m not a MQA believer; but you can not go wrong with the M6

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    I was under the same dilemma, waiting for SACD ISO support. decided to go ahead purchase the M6 and load Neutron which plays SACD ISO, the experience was marginal Neutro is very good player but the overall sound quality is behind the shanling app, even playing my SACD ISOs. As I mentioned...

    ok, good to hear. I think I found the problem the Sleep timer was reseted when I upgraded to 3.11 now makes me wonder what is the difference between Sleep and Idle PowerOff timers ?

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    hi folks... Question, what is the tipical battery use per charge (100% to 10%) you are getting? I concerned I may have damaged the battery: I never turn off to reduce stress in the power buttom, just stop playing and then the timer turns the unit off. Somethig happened 2 days ago and it did...

    hi Shanling, nice fix on the volume boot up. one minor improvement: place the SCREEN OFF icon in the first row once you click the notification area, now you have to pull twice. this feature is really helping. thanks.

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    very interesting, case being one the 2 is not bit perfect, you will need to insure there are no DSP in the foobar engine or bitdeep forcing, otherwise it shoud be bitperfect. If possible you may want to try other player, i.e. I use Jriver with outstanding results. Also I have some doubts USB...

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    I have loaded some DSD to the shanling app V 3.1, latest, sound quality is nothing like I used to experience with old Opp BDP 103, but it died, since then I have not had a good sound quality reference using DSD (or SACD); when I my Oppo died, I purchased the Yggdrasil which is not DSD capable...

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    Nice improvements shanling. the screen off option I`m asuming is meant to reduce stress/use on the volume/ON buttom. Like wise would be nice to incorporate a POWER OFF access and reduce the use of the volume wheel. I was thinking of this and found some apps in goggle play, but unfortunatly...

    you need to go to settings (not sure android or shanling app settings) and look for USB mode, you will find the DAC option.

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    thank you, managed to connect. I also found the wifi transder useful. I decided to ditch Neutron and Hiby players... both yield worse SQ compared to the stock player. Hiby with MSBE options can really mess up audio... way to much DSP. I`m going to stick with shanling app for the time being, I...

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    I see you ar bypassing the DAC on the M6 to use the Mojo, any particular reason? sound quality maybe? all I have heard is that M6 is way better, even has a balanced arch, Mojo is single ended, in the Chord family the Hugo would be understandble, just curious.

    I¨m not a Tidal user, but my understanding is that offers some sort of FLAC equivalent (called Tidal HD?); In fact I remember reading that most of tidal HD library is not QMA; but FLAC lossless, I have an extensive FLAC and DSD library, but overall I tend to stay with FLAC (no even hiress 24bit...

    Shanling M6 Player - New version with ESS DACs coming soon

    welcome Ken. when I exercise (running mostly) I use my small Shanling M0 for convenience, not bluetooth, but wired. this way you get best sound quality possible. If you bought the M6 to use with any wireless head set I think you over spent your money and could better stay with your phone...
