MusicTeck has this player listed on their site. entry level DAPs (around $500) are all limited with 2GB of RAM, which may hinder their functionality. the mid-level models ($700 and up) have 4GB. the higher price is probably worth it.

I’ve been considering the m7 and dx240. I know the m6 ultra might be considered a step down, but a quad akm setup is interesting. I like that emerald green a lot, wish it came with a black case. I don’t really like the m3x style (or it’s sound), but it’s not a deal breaker.

The reviews I’ve read of the ua3 and the sem 4 (astell se180 insert) which both use the 4493s are good. Great musicality, soundstage, imaging, and bass layering/definition. Low noise levels and power consumption too. In particular the sem 4 (dual 4493s) is an improvement on the sem 2 (dual 4497eq). I know implementation plays a big factor, but I bet the m6 ultra is an upgrade to the OG m6 pro even though power is similar. We’ll see though, I hope it’s good
Well, that's just an assumption at this point, but I hope you're right.

Hmm, still really enjoying my OG M6 Pro, but this unit has me intrigued. More so than the new M7, as I'm a fan of the AKM sound. No idea if this could be considered an upgrade to the M6 Pro, more of a side grade perhaps? Four 4493s in exchange for two 4497s. I've never heard anything with the 4493s.
Shanling - Can you tell us what the dimensions of this new device is, or what it's going to retail at? Any thoughts on how this might sound in comparison to the original M6 Pro?
On sale now at Musicteck in the US for $919 USD in green or black chassis. See online sale site Here. Also excited to read reviews when available !
