Absolutely admire the Shanling. The service at Musictech was great, too. The shipping was incredibly fast. The leather case was in back order and I was not expecting it to come this fast. I am very pleased with the service at Musictech. Thank you!
Shanling M8 Digital Audio Player with Free Leather Case
Finally, a dap that doesn't need an external amplifier such as cord Mojo, iDSD black label. My preferred dac/amp was the idsd black label with Xbase on. The M8 will power everything I have with no problem and no hiss with sensitive iem's.
For reference my headphones are.
Audeze LCD-2 Classic.
this DAP is exactly what i was looking for. has all I needed, and no more. I really like the customizable output. battery life is as described. on the large side for a pocket wearable, but still manageable. I cannot think of a mistake... excellent customer service from Musictek!
If I had to explain my perception of the sonic signature of the M8, I'd say that it's almost like it wraps each note with a layer of velvet; soft and smooth but thin enough that the texture and clarity still shine through. Low frequencies blossom without unbalancing the overall sound signature, infusing it with a wonderful fuller bodied warmth while still keeping the music crystal clear and maintaining a wide soundstage. A fantastic balance of musicality and reference-like levels of resolution to my ears. It is without a doubt my go to music player at the moment, as it brings out the best in all of my audio equipment. I am looking forward to my time with it as I've heard that burn-in improves it even further.
The customer service is also excellent, and made purchasing from Musicteck a pleasure.
