Cool, I would love to hear your impressions on how they compare sound wise. There is a user on the Shanling M0 thread who has the A35 and prefers the M0 sound to it and having USB-C will be so nice, no more WMPort nonsense. At this point with info likely to start coming soon on the Sony A50 series (stuff started leaking on the A40 last July) and IFA in September even if I don't like the M0 for some reason I would wait to see what Sony does with the A50 before upgrading. Shanling hinted at possibly releasing other DAP's later this year or early next year so could be some interesting options down the road. Sounds like you are getting a little DAPPY (DAP Happy) you might want to seek professional help. Hey, maybe I should try to patent that word!
