    Thanks! Now I just need to decide if I want to get 256 GB or bite the bullet and get a 400 GB card.

    Does anybody have any idea when on some multi disc albums each disc shows as a separate album while other don’t?

    They are all tagged correctly with album artist and disc number.

    I can’t work it out why for a majority of multidisc sets it’s fine but for a handful it isn’t

    EDIT: I’ve worked it out. Some discs would have ‘the’ in the album titles whereas others would have ‘The’ so that’s why they ended up separated

    I still love the A45... like you i used to have the A17 and it was a nice little player but the A45 is a step up in sound and you will like the UI ..I think you should still get it is a great sounding device with a great bluetooth range, i am getting the hiby r3 soon i will compare the 2 but i suspect the r3 will have a leaner sound ,i will soon find out

    That one is a tricky one. Check that the Album names artist name matches exactly among all discs. I think case sensitivity, extra space or comma or only one letter in different case does that. For example, if you have a title in one disc as The Wall Disc 1 and The Wall Disc 2, they will show separate or also The Wall and The wall.

    Nope, didn't work. Even worse - Media Center crashes on Win10 virual machine every time it analyzes the data...
    I did it under Win10 on virtual machine through Parallels. Seemed easier that way.
    Yes, unfortunately. Look on the bright side - on A25/27 it took much and much longer.
    I'm using 200Gb card without any issues.

    I’m loving this player more everyday. The ability to listen to recent transfers is a godsend and the ability to move the order of songs in a bookmarks list is lovely! The bad thing though is that the player doesn’t notify you of duplicate songs in a bookmarks list. Is there a way to know that you have added a duplicate besides scrolling through the whole list?

    I just got mine in today. I checked in vlc and the usb dac has around a 1 sec delay. Thats insane! Do all dap's with a usb dac function have a delay like this?

    I have the a45 and just recently it got stuck on boot loop. It boots but not complitely and just keeps rebooting. Is there a recover mode or similar or other method to fix this?

    I am not saying the A45 is not a really good DAP and I was looking to get one for a long time. The UI on the Shanling M0 is very good as well and it boots up alot faster than the A45 does.

    Bottom Line

    For power - M0 wins
    For battery - A45 wins
    For price - M0 wins x2
    For features I really want - tie including LDAC
    For portability - M0 wins
    For startup time - M0 wins
    For onboard memory - A45 wins

    So for all the things that are important for me in a DAP the M0 is the clear winner and I don't have to put up with Sony's total absence from local stores to demo. Maybe if I could have demoed the A45 I would have been so impressed I might have bought one. I guess I will never know!!

    have you demoed the M0?

    It is not available in Canada until July but I have pre-ordered one as the store offered a pre-order discount plus 5% off coupon. So for the price I am paying (less then half the A45) I am prepared to take a flyer on the M0 but the store offers 14 day return policy if it isn't for me and I can go to the store and return it unlike the A45. I have watched several youtube videos and it looks awesome. That they packed so many features into something that small alone makes me want to try it. The A45 is just a rehashed A17 in a shiny new package that actually offers less of what I want than my 4 year old A17!

    Thing is Shanling is expanding their dealer network in Canada and the dealer I ordered it from is a brand new Shanling dealer. Sony is becoming more and more scarce. The dealer I usually buy and demo with sold the A35 but had such a hard time dealing with Sony and getting stock that they won't carry the A45. Best Buy Canada did sell the A series DAP's at one time but not anymore. I would literally have to drive 3 hours to get to a dealer that carries the A45 and I live in the 4th largest city in North America. The A45 being so hard to find in a city this size speaks to how poorly Sony must be doing in Canada.

    I have demoed the Shanling M2S and M1 and liked them enough sound wise to take a look at the M0 sight unseen. Reviewers are saying the M0 sounds better than either of the M2S and M1 and is alot cheaper. Shanling is on the head-fi forum everyday getting feedback from users and listening to what they want. As we speak their engineers are looking to add podcast support as so many users have requested it. You never hear anything from Sony and they certainly don't take feedback from their potential customers. Shanling has LDAC support now so the one advantage Sony had for me doesn't exist anymore so why put up with Sony if I don't have to?

    I did!!

    Just letting people know there is an alternative to Sony A45, has 90% of what A45 offers for less than 50% the cost. I would love to say a demoed both and made the best choice but that isn't possible with Sony

    i just ordered one lol..i am going to compare it with my A45 i have so many daps now its unreal ..the size of the M0 intrigues me if it sounds as good as the sony or better its a winner ...the A45 is definitely better than the A17 soundwise i compared the two big difference is the treble and bass ..better impact to my ears
     
  15. chinerino
    Imo, i did manage to demo both, and i got the sony A45 hahahaha i wasnt a bluetooth guy and if i had to go bluetooth, its kinda pointless to go to a DAP hahaha. I tried both and i felt M0 had certain buggy flags, feel wasnt as good, UI sony is better, and sound wise i felt sony is fuller and less thin, but of coursesome people wouldnt see the value in overpriced sony and i wouldnt disagree that sony has many shortcomings
