Shanling has set a precedent of creating stylish digital audio players, and the M2s delivers on that promise. This player has the impressive specs we’ve come to expect from the company, including an AK4490EQ DAC, a TPA6120 amplifier, and a MUSE8920 op-amp for low-pass filtering. Featuring a 3-inch retina HD display, it’s 20.6 percent smaller and 15 grams lighter than the last generation of the M2. Plus, this DAP uses two-way Bluetooth with aptX, which means it can transmit to a speaker via Bluetooth 4.0 or receive data from a smartphone to act as a Bluetooth DAC/amp unit. Giving the M2s a perfect five stars, Head-Fi’s Nolbert0 says, “Shanling really has outdone themselves on this one … No other DAP in its price range compares in terms of value, functionality, ease of use, and aesthetics.”
