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

    Both my cars have been very finicky with BT transmitters (have tried a few now with other older DAP's that have no BT). The M6, being Android based, works just fine and also removes the need for me to carry yet another device around. The M6 btw isn't for my good headphones - I purchased it...

    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...

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

    RE: gapless, same concerns here. It's not something I notice frequently with the M0 given how I use it most of the time (gym usage). But the SQ is a big sell for me, so much so that you could have a long-term buyer here for one of your larger players as I sell off / retire some of my older...

    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

    I'm all for years of firmware updates, don't get me wrong. But three years was fairly rare even ten years back - two years was more the average from my recollection - two examples from my own collection are the Sandisk Sansa with two years of updates (a closer price point the M0 btw) and the...

    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

    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.

    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

    Every time I carry this thing around I feel like it screams "wrist band!" to me. I know it's not a huge product line to warrant a lot of accessories but a band would really be useful in the gym, coupled with BT headphones.

    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...

    iTunes Match

    Google Music only seems to support 320kps MP3's, atm (FLAC, Vorbis and AAC's get transcoded).  The general rule of thumb is that WMA/Vorbis/AAC files are usually the same SQ as the next step-up with MP3.  So 256kps AAC's are about the same SQ as a 320kps MP3.    This is, of course, a very...

    Cowon D3 Plenue. Review. With Photos.

    That question to me?   If you meant my comment about the Telechips CPU, then no it's not better than a Cortex-based CPU (imo).     Decent for video playback, but not as speedy overall.  And Telechips support for Froyo has been slow coming, although some tablets have finally gotten it.

    Cowon D3 - It's official :)

    This is actually a problem with the Telechips CPU + Android 2.1(?) -- my SmartQ R10 tablet has the exact same problem.

    Cowon D3 Plenue. Review. With Photos.

    I just bought one.   I haven't been here lately but I've been spending a lot of time modding tablets (like the GTAB and Adam).   So this D3 not only appeals to my music center, but also my hacking center.   I couldn't resist.   I just wish they used a Cortex-based CPU.    Oh well....

    Rockbox for Android!

    I just bought an Archos 32, and compiled Rockbox for its 240x400 resolution.   As you might expect, once tweaked it takes a mediocre sounding player and makes it sound a hell of a lot better.   I've been testing mainly with my Yuin PK1's and FiiO E5, since those would the ones that would be...

    New Archos "Mobile Internet Device" Line!!

    I also have a pre-order in for the 10 inch device, and SQ is one of the first things I'll test.  TigerDirect just needs to ship the darn thing,

    Does the fall of music ever depress you? It does me.

    My 2 cents on the matter, being a 40 something.   In the 1980's, I listened to mainly college radio and alternative and thought the drivel that was Top 40 was just god-awful.   Just looking back ten years earlier to the 1960s/70's, I had wondered what had happened to "real" popular music like...

    Will AAC support ever become widespread?

    Back to the OP's concerns - I agree with the majority here about backing up to lossless. I know space might be an issue but prices are fairly cheap for external HDD's and they are getting cheaper every month. I would backup to lossless on an external drive, and then use any lossy format you want...
