A better, more compact Shanling M2s available on eBay and Aliexpress for $159 shipped to US (and even cheaper in EU) from Shanling authorized dealers. Shanling M2s uses new advanced hardware platform and all new user friendly interface.

There are users impressions and reviews in the Head-Fi thread. Digital sound is a very personal thing when you go below thousands of a percentage point in THD and less than 100dB SNR with almost unmeasuarble jitter. I can call an example of vacuum tube based audio that may sound incredibly good and will measure much worse than its semiconductor/microchip based counterparts. I listen to Shozy Alien (the original "Black" version) as my main DAP. The Alien is a very simple device without any OS, menu or advanced features. Just a few buttons. I will bet its sound against any DAP under $400.

The $189.99 on Amazon was only for the gray model, no other color available. The quantity was super limited so it was sold out right away. All other sellers are selling for about the same price. However, buying from here is at least safer than anywhere else, since Amazon doesn't sell it directly and all other sellers are shipping from China.

I don't get it. Isn't the concept and business model here to organize large groups buys to save money? If I wanted to pay more I could buy for the same EXACT price on Aliexpress. $239 http://m.aliexpress.com/item/32643328258.html

I take that this DAP doesn't have an Android based OS?

Yep. It's basically a traditional mp3 player.

I agree with everyone else's statements, When I see something here of interest, I quickly check Amazon and eBay to see if the price is anything special. Unfortunately more often that not, it's not a good price. Anyone have any experience with this DAP? I have a Pono, the iBasso DX90 and the Astell Jr.

In terms of sound AK Jr is not comparable to M2. With a power output of 125 mW at 32 ohm M2 is powerful enough to drive most sub $300 headphones. (Imho even HD600 sounds quite alright on high gain mood.) It has a clean and warm sound. Suitable for gentler music. Personally I find the highs (violins) to be a little veiled. So it is probably not good for metals or electronic either. There are lots of Chinese DAPs that sound as good as this in recent years, but in terms of controls and usability this one is the best. I've never listened to DX90 though, but looking at the prices I wouldn't be surprised if DX90 sounds better.
