    Shanling M2X Reviews in post #2
    Shanling M2X firmware updates in post #3


    Soon it will be 1 year since we revealed Shanling M0. Flagship Shanling M5s was announced just 6 months ago. Now it’s time to fill the gap between them with a new mid-tier player. And what could be a better fit than third generation of popular M2 model?

    Introducing Shanling M2x

    Shanling M2x is smaller brother of our current flagship Shanling M5s. Same beautiful design, MTouch system and rich feature list. And while M5s stays as our top model thanks to its superior sound quality, M2x will be tempting alternative for anybody looking for slightly smaller and cheaper player.


    Shanling M2x comes with few new features:

    - Tidal support – For never-ending streaming of music (ONLINE mode only)

    - USB Bluetooth transmitter – For high quality wireless sound from any computer

    - Advanced USB output – For use with any external USB DAC, now including compatibility with DLNA, Airplay and Bluetooth receiver modes


    Key specifications

    - 3.2’’ touch screen and Shanling’s MTouch 2.0 system

    - DLNA, Airplay and Bluetooth for wireless connection with smartphone & computer

    - USB Digital out for use with external DACs

    - Serves as USB DAC and as USB Bluetooth transmitter

    - AKM AK4490EN DAC and balanced output

    - Slot for micro SD card, compatible up to 2TB

    - Hi-Res music support up to 32bit/384 kHz and DSD256

    Well, with only an “X” for a designation as opposed to a letter and a number, I’m expecting a weird new AIO device or the start of a new product type.

    The tags at the top give some hint at what kind of device this is.

    Though that list would also apply to the M5s I believe.

    Not quite, since the M5s doesn't have direct access to apps like Tidal (unless I've missed something).
    Perhaps this X player will be Android powered...a rival for FiiO's M6 or M9?

    very, very interesting. Shanling doesn't disappoint with value for money DAPs. Still liking my old M2s.
    Any word already about output impedance?

    No 4.4mm balanced and only one card slot though
