The Worst software/interface that I have ever seen in a DAP.
Sound is nice though.
No more firmware updates, even the website became arspeakers.com.
I feel abandoned, shame on you AR.
Am I missing something or the support moved somewhere or vanished for good?

I think the disappointment of the M200 and lack of interest in their recent IEMs and H1 planar headphone might have been the last straw for AR HiFi. They were conspicuously absent from CanJam SG this year and as you said, the website now redirects to AR Speakers which has a very limited number of gimmicky looking outdoor speakers and nothing else.

I know that the company was/is owned by VOXX and my speculation is they decided to drop AR Hifi based on poor performance and sales. I think the M200 could have kept them afloat but the UI was a disaster and the release kept getting delayed, so when it finally became available, Shanling had already launched the M0, which made the M200 look plain antiquated and clumsy in comparison. The one thing the M200 had going for it was its bi-directional Bluetooth (+ balanced out) but by the time it came to market the M0 was already doing that with a much more modern, functional, desirable and significantly cheaper device.
