I really like the Shanling 2 player. Sound quality is very good and battery life is acceptable too. The only thing I would change, which is just a minor feature for me, would be the shuffle. I added over 40,000 songs to my sd card, and when I try and shuffle play, it will only run through 7 pages of songs rather than the whole library I have downloaded which is over 400 pages. Not a big deal, just a bit inconvenient.

As I said in the discussion thread when I joined the drop, this is the 2nd one of these that I bought, so I must like it.
I originally had a RockBoxed XDuoo X3, but it stopped working, so I replaced it with one of these. I use that one exclusively as a music server in my car, and it works great. I just put everything I'm interested in hearing in one big playlist and let it shuffle. Nice organic sound quality. I bought this one to use in the house and to take with me on vacation. I'll use it mostly the same way (e.g., when I'm cooking or entertaining) and I won't need to move the 1st one in and out of the car.
It's a pretty versatile unit, like most of the DAPs it competes against. Besides headphones and IEMs, you can feed line out to an amp or powered speakers. It will pair with BlueTooth speakers (AptX too!). You can use it as an outboard USB DAC. And with an OTG cable, you can use it as a digital source for an external USB DAC. It'll play pretty much any resolution file you can think of.
Physically, it has a solid feel and a nice big crisp display. Nice weight to it. There is a tempered glass screen protector available for $10 that also helps reduce fingerprints on the display. The scroll wheel can be a bit tedious with long playlists, but I don't need to deal with that too often.
I chose the metallic green color, which I haven't seen anywhere else, and it looks really nice (my 1st one is black). Even my wife commented that she liked the color.

Just got mine today and it's pretty nice player. Wish it was touchscreen though as the knob is somewhat finicky and needs some getting used to. It also doesn't help that you cannot configure the sensitivity of the knob but that's a given since it's not a free rolling one. The screen is actually very nice which isn't really high on most audiophile's wishlist but nonetheless, it's a nice to have. Going back to the knob, I wish they would allow us to use it not just for volume when playing but also to seek. Overall a good entry level DAP for the massdrop price.
*Update 8/3/18 - there's a 3.4 firmware that adds a knob sensitivity of 4 levels which is ok but since the knob isn't really free rolling, it doesn't help that much.
