Product Description
High-quality audio is always at your disposal with the Aune M2S DAP, an upgrade of the company’s well-received M2 model. It updates the original’s clocking with a pair of USA CRYSTEK military femtoseconds crystal oscillators and has improved tuning on the headphone amp, an eye-catching blue finish, and a Teflon PCB Read More

I have the M2 Pro version and while I can say that it sounds great, it isn't without flaws. No1, UI looks like a MP3 player from early 2000's. No album art, etc. On the bright side, it is snappy and responsive. No.2 Since the DAP runs an Class-A amp, it will run hot and battery life will be short. It's just how Class-A amps are. No.3 Output power is on the low side. You might need a separate amp when using power hungry headphones like planars. No.4 No USB DAC support. Won't connect to your PC, won't connect to your Mojo. No.5 No WiFi, no Bluetooth, no digital output. As for microSD compatibility, I've tried 64GB and 128GB cards, and as long as you format them to FAT32 they were usable.
I would not recommend this to people looking for their first DAP, there are plenty of DAPs these days that can do a lot more at or below this price. If you have a daily driver DAP, have some extra cash to spare, and want something "unusual", this might be for you.

I can't really say, it all depends on what features you want, what you must have and what you can spare, and the most, how much you can afford. Recent products that I considered buying were ; Shanling M3s, FiiO X5 Mk3, Pioneer XDP-300R, COWON PLENUE R, Astell & Kern AK70 MK2. I ended up buying a audio-opus Opus#1S just because I wanted to try something different, didn't need Bluetooth nor WiFi but wanted headphone output power, and since I have plans on buying a SONY NW-WM1A in the near future I wanted something that I wouldn't mind flipping. If I had to choose just 1 DAP and had a limited budget, I'd go with a Shanling M3s ,XDP-300R or a FiiO X5 Mk3, but that's just me.

Does it have coax digital output? I don't see that in the description. Seems like an odd omission. I am tempted by the LG v30. My OPPO find 7 has starting to get a little weird. Best phone I've had and the longest I've had one.

ClaytonJ"...coax digital output?" No digital output at all! In a $350 DAP? Seriously?

Maximum capacity card the review player could take is 32Gb? That’s hopelessly inadequate, when the iPod Classic was 160Gb, and 256Gb cards are affordable, and 500Gb cards getting that way. this is grossly overpriced for what it does, I’d want dual card slots with at least 256Gb available on each for the price being asked. Not a chance I’d pay the price, it would be expensive at $99.

PhasmainmachinaMajority of DAPs in the market are simply overpriced garbage with 10 years old software and sometimes even hardware. When phones like LG v20 or v30 prove that you CAN have a normal functioning phone and a pretty powerful amp inside of it all while maintaining the newest android and thin look, I somehow don't see a point why anyone should drop 500$+ on something that ONLY plays music and has a pretty poor battery life for how little it can do.
It is just my opinion, could be unpopular but I don't care, it's time for the DAP market to step it up and offer something truly worth the price tag.

PhasmainmachinaPut in a 256GB card I don't think you will face any problem unless it's FAT32.

I listened to it, it does not withstand competition with Aune M1S.

This time will be my 3rd time trying to buy this drop, cancelled every time for lack of participation. I deserve a discount :)

I just ordered the Cayin N3 to use in a set with the Peachtree Audio Shift.
I would have bought this one if i didn't.

I would think that the Onkyo DP-X1 (dual dac with balanced output ) or the single ended/dac Pioneer version of the same player would be a better value. The Pioneer is priced lower, the Onyko a bit over $100 more than the Aune price. Pluses on both would be lots of storage, support for a wide variety of files, and a much better UI. The DP-X1 sounds great, especially out of the balanced output, I've never heard the Pioneer. The Aune has excellent sound from what I have read, so that is probably the main reason for choosing this player.
