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

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?
