    I don´t know if this great and honest review of @Barra was posted here yet:

    Folder browsing was never important for me, so I can´t comment on that. Also I never listen in shuffle mode, so this wasn´t a dealbreaker for me. Yeah, battery life sucks, but it lasts for 3-4 hours, so for my normal daily use from A to B it´s no problem for me either.

    So for me it´s all about the awesome SQ :)

    Yes the sq is superb it has rich sounding tones and electric guitars sound precise with full tones,there's no thinness to notes,but unfortunately for me I'm moving on to a desk top set up so shall be selling this such underrated dap

    Any more news on the M being discontinued? Great looking dap, but for my needs the battery life could be too short. What is everybody getting playing mp3 files? i don't really want to pack around an external battery pack, but does it sound that amazing that it would be worth it? How long is does the battery last in terms of how many charges it can hold or whatever? I would like to see the price come down a little given how long this has been on the market.

    Thank you

    Riley

    I don't know if you can still buy a Calyx M new, and is rare to find an used one. The battery is good for 5 to 6 hours. The sound is great, very musical. The best sounding player I tried sound wise. I am very happy with it.

    Have been missing this DAP since I sold mine 2 years ago to try out other TOTL DAPs but still can't find one close to the unique SQ of this DAP.

    Just bought a brand new set of the Calyx M end of last week from my favourite audio store as could not resist the current low price for this best sounding DAP!

    Firmware is still 1.01, same as my old set. Battery life per use is not as good as my other DAPs and far from my wife's Sony ZX2, but it has been with me for the past few days as main DAP and happy to be back with the seductive sound that I missed!

    A simple, single ended (SE) connection, but sounds better than my other DAPs with balanced connection. Loaded all my favourite DSD files and it plays them smoothly and natively without issues. Simple UI focusing on playing the music album, no junks and no streaming/wifi/bluetooth. A real DAP just focused on delivering the best sound quality!

    Now got to look for some form of protection (more for the back and edges since it comes with a gorgeous scratch resistant gorilla glass).

    Could not find any leather case anymore though (Dignis, Gariz?).

    Using a smartphone pouch fitting nicely (Calyx M is similar in dimension to iPhone6, just thicker), but could not plug in earphone without opening the pouch:

    Anyone has tips on where to get leather case, or if anyone has one to sell?

    Guess this is probably no longer available?
