One thing you have to admire about Shanling is this: their devices are released in pretty much flawless condition in terms of software. Honestly, compared to fellow Chinese DAP manufacturers (read “competition”), Shanling seem light-years ahead when talking about polishing the software and giving buyers an non-frustrating user experience. Of course, no product is 100% perfect, especially when it comes to software, but that’s what update are for.
Despite all the time and energy put into releasing a stable product from the get-go, they still work hard to iron out what few bugs exist, but more importantly, to add new features.
Exactly 3 months ago the released new firmware updates for the M1s, M2s, and M3s. Today (09 Feb 2018), Shanling have yet again released updates for all 3 devices in one go.

The M2s was already quite possibly the most versatile mini-DAP available on the market today, especially when considering its price-point. It’s small size and outstanding features makes it a fantastic solution for both a standalone player and transport. You can read more about the the M2s in our review here.

What’s New In The Updates?

For all 3 devices, the following improvements and additions have been made:

New function:
1.Added support of OPUS Codec.

If you are unfamiliar with the OPUS Codec, it’s an open, royalty-free lossy codec. You can learn more about it via the OPUS website, or via the Wikipedia page

Changes and fixes:
1.Higher speed of scrolling text.
2.Fixed other small system bugs.

However, for both the M2s and M3s, an additional fix has been included:

Fixed the problem of the wheel’s “press to confirm” function being active while screen is locked.
