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.
