    Hi, breaking news, I have put by chance a 400gb card, formatted in an android smartphone btw, with mixed contents. Result Is the player reads It with no problem, just a tad slow when launching a Song, bit works like a charm...

    Interesting. I have not been able to get a 256GB or higher card successfully read by the AR-M2. Have to, so far, live with a 200GB max. So that's good news with the M200.

    My 400 gig card (fat32) works as well but no matter what card I use my M200 goes silent if I pause playback and let the screen timeout. Get no sound after unpausing and have to reset the player. No difference after firmware update but, as previously stated, the M200 is a poor choice for local playback.

    Bluetooth receiver mode it where it shines. Haven't figured out how to get album art (via metadata) to show yet but everything else functions great paired with my phone. Recently upgraded to a Oneplus 7 Pro which has no headphone jack so I've been using aptx-HD quite a bit.

    I have the M200 stacked with my Oriolus BA-10 tube amp for full balanced and sound quality is impressive imo.

    Need the latest FW please, now I am using 1.0.751.

    With 128 gigs card, same issue of the awkward silent as what @gr8soundz said.

    The hole between charger and 3.5mm jack is a reset button right?? Tried to poke with sim ejector nothing happened :frowning2:

    There is no reset pin. You might have killed the mic.

    It's in the Bluetooth addendum part of the manual:

    Haven't tested the mic yet but my M200 has alerted me to incoming phone calls. The mic is supposed to allow for taking calls while listening via bluetooth.
  14. Matpar
    That Is correct. Unfortunately mine worked flawlessy with Razer phone, but nothing happens on my new Pixel 3A XL... Dunno if it Is because of BT version, since music works Just fine!
