Excellent Portable

I bought this right before Shanling announced the M9 and was worried I might want to send it back and get the new *flagship* device. Well I've had it for a couple of months and it's my favorite piece of audio equipment I've ever owned. There seem to be SOME quality control issues but I got a good one.

It presents instruments accurately, but with a slight tuning that makes everything sound incredible. Normally I'm a flat response, accuracy above all else listener, but this sounds like everything is playing to my heart and I never get tired of it.

If you want something you'll love, go for it. The only thing you could lose with QC issues is the time sending it back for a replacement, but I wouldn't worry about it. I knew there was a chance mine would be buggy but I bought anyway and I'm glad I did.

Great sound but not not stable

Great sound but not stable device.
Lots of time I have no sound coming out from the device although the headset was working before. It is a bug labeled as “Muted Output” from Shanling. I send it back to Shanling to fix it and after 4 weeks they send it back and told me they know about the issue and they will fix it in the next Firmware update.
Also it some time give me black screen and I have to hard reset it to make it working again.
But when it working the sound is great.
