Got my M1S so far enjoying the great sound quality, and build quality slightly disappointed at the 20,000 track limit though loaded a 1tb card and 5000 tracks were not loaded.

That database architecture is lacking

Cannot you just use folder view? I file as albums so maybe folks do things differently.
I could but as a dyslexic I tend to navigate by album covers.

So there is no "global" 20k limit, just when browsing song by song? I'm trying to decide if it's worth to buy 1TB card and put my complete music library (currently ~27k files) on it...
That's correct. Using folder view browsing has no limit.

What kind of battery life are you getting? M M6 Pro 21 is down to 40 minutes per charge and I'm extremely interested in this little portable .

The 20.000 song limit is for real? It would make it impossible to buy for me if thats true. Will it be expanded? My songs are about 45.000.
Our software team so far refuses to change this limit, due to system stability and speed.

If you have more than 20 000 files on card, you would have to use folder browsing, that is unlimited.

Hi,

This device looks really cool. I checked out the SR35 in person a few days ago but it was too large for me to carry along with 2 iphones so looking for something smaller. I have 2 questions:

1. Can I connect the Shanling M1S connect to my iphone using a wire and have it serve as a DAC (similar to my Mojo2), and also blueooth transmit the music to my fiio utws5? Can the Shanling M0 Pro do the same?

2. Can I stream using the stream using the mainstream services. I subscribe to Tidal, Amazon Unlimited, Qobuz, Apple Music. Can I also save music for offline playing? I don't want to have to transfer files over.

I am really sorry if something here has been answered somewhere but I just want to be certain before I pull the trigger. I don't want to carry the SP3k everywhere I go and would love to use my iphone if possible. I don't want to pair the device over bluetooth with my iphone. Thanks.

1. While M1s is not designed to be used as USB DAC with iOS, it currently works, tested with our L3 cable. But we didn't test it in combination with Bluetooth transmitter.

2. Currently there are no streaming services on M1s.

Hello guys.
Got my m1s and loving it so far.
Unfortunately I have trouble connecting it with my apple tv box 4k.
When connected via airplay I get out of sync audio for a couple of seconds and then nothing.
I am trying to connect via bt but after I select m1s from the other devices section I get a prompt on the m1s with a passcode o hit enter but nothing happens.... Restarted several times but nothing happens.
Using firmware version 2.0
Any advice ? maybe @Shanling?
