    Hi, @Bina I don't know if this question has been asked before (and I just didn't find it on a search), but are there crystal XOs or an IC PLL clock generator on board the M0? Given the size of the device and its price point (as well as the lack of mention in marketing materials), I assume the latter. Not implying that IC clock generators are necessarily bad (some are quite good and not necessarily worse than discrete XOs).

    @Bina - any resolution to the track order issue yet? I've had to stop using my m0, as it's too distracting when it happens.

    (Yes, I am more of a "whole album" listener, who doesn't enjoy shuffle!)

    This was bothering me quite a bit as well. In the meantime I've resorted to .cue sheets - not sure if that would be an option for you.

    I was promised next firmware update during august.

    Meanwhile it seems it's caused by disc number tag. If you delete this tag, song order went back to normal.

    Yeah, I don't want to start deleting perfectly sensible metadata to work around firmware bugs on one device. Keep an eye out for the firmware from your devs and ping us here when it's ready as usual, please ;)

    @Bina can we get an auto shut off timer feature added to this device? Let’s say if there’s no playback or buttons pressed for 30 or 60 minutes it turns off. Two or three times now I’ve gone to use the device (after I was pretty sure I turned it off, with a mostly full battery) and found the battery empty. I guess it turns on really easily in my pocket? But this is a problem.

    It does have an auto off feature but I agree that it gets turned back on very easily in a bag.

    Yeah, when I still used mine, I stopped zipping it into a rucksack pocket, and kept it in the small peli case that I normally use for IEMs, otherwise the battery was almost always flat when I came to use it. That does work well.

    Hi!

    I just bought M0 audio player. This is very good DAP with great sound in such small package. But there are a few, important to me (I hope, to many other M0 users too) things which can be improved:

    1. Next and Previous track buttons could be at the same time as Fast Forward and Rewind buttons (i.e. after longer hold). The Youtube-like progress bar on second screen is very inaccurate (I listen long tracks and when I use this progress bar I usually can`t get the right track`s moment what I need). Dedicated buttons will be very helpful - as it is in DAPs with normal, hardware buttons.

    2. Second screen (with actual time, elapsed time and progress bar or buttons, what I wrote above) should be show immediately after volume button click - not as second screen, but first screen (user should be a choice in settings). For me, track time/elapsed time and forward/rewind are very important and useful. If these informations and controls will be displayed on screen as first would be great. The perfect first screen should contain: clock, volume level, battery indicator, track name, album name, rewind and fast forward buttons, play/pause button, progress bar, actual track time, elapsed track time, and track number (1/7, 1/5 etc. ), replay/shuffle and favorite buttons.

    3. Track names in the main screen - like in Rockbox, user should have a choice what will be display (real file name or track name from Id3 tag). Sometimes tag names are very strange and manual tag edit is time-consuming.

    4. Manual EQ - touchscreen is perfect for this feature :)



    Beside these wishes, M0 is very nice player - really good job ;-)
    Thank you and I will be happy if these small changes will be implemented in newest firmware version. Is only suggest, but I

    Hi guys, new firmware got delayed, since software team was working on System in new M5s DAP. It was tested over holidays, needs to change few things, but it should be out this week.

    New firmware for M0 will bring some fixes(like the wrong order of some album files), will add support of external playlists, add controls in BT receiver mode.

    3. Added support of external m3u and m3u8 playlists
    4. Added “Recently added” list in “My Music”
    5. Fixed bug causing wrong song order in “My Music” browsing(the swithced 2/3.4/5.6/7 song)

    A little disappointed that access to the playlists are through the folders section, and towards the end. I use playlists that use different folders rather than within one folder. There a way in the future to have these m3u8 playlists have their own section in the My Music area? Let me know if I'm not doing it correctly though.
