    I'm all in Chi-Fi. GR07 here sounds awesome btw.

    how's your tempered glass? Mine doesn't stick on the upper left, and when I asked Jaben back there were being an ahole about it.

    Do you guys know if I can LO from M3s to dac/amp via USB? Let's say if I want to connect to centrance dacport slim to a HD650 or K7XX. Will that work?

    The m1 and m2s have USB out. So I assume it would be the same for the m3s. Would be weird if it doesn’t have this feature.

    Thanks for reply, I have H6 paired with M1 and it's almost perfect - only battery lasts too short for me and I had to buy small powerbank :)

    I can confirm the M3s does allow output to an external DAC via its USB port, as you say it works the same as for other Shanling DAP's.

    2. Fixed the problem of having no sound when playback is restarted from standby mode.

    3.Fixed the problem of the progress bar not moving during playback.

    4.Fixed the problem of showing the Bluetooth pop-up window when playback is restarted from standby mode.

    Testing the iOS app now. Album art preview is rather blurry. Could it be that my art is 500x500? And no more fiddling around with the dap in my pocket! :beerchug:
