Product Description

Calyx Audio of South Korea manufactures the M — a DSD capable, high-resolution hand held music player. The M also does double duty as a digital-to-analog converter, and the custom-designed software lets users browse and create playlists on the go. The Calyx M offers users the ability to store up to 448 GB worth of music with one SD and one Micro SD card slot. Digital conversion is handled by the ESS Labs ES9018S-2M chip then sent to a discrete class A analog output stage. Sound quality is what music aficionados expect from Calyx, and the M delivers! Bass extension and power belies the look of the M with its sleek and light chassis. A 4.65 inch Gorilla glass high definition OLED screen that is responsive, rugged and reliable. Whether through headphones or your audio system music is highly detailed and effortless sounding.

Your music stored on the M is only a touch away. The M:USE proprietary user interface is intuitive, attractive and feature packed. Browse your music by Artist, Album and Tracks. The search feature allows you to find what you’re looking for quickly. Swipe the screen to the left and you can create multiple playlists in the “Jukebox”. You can rearrange your play queue with a drag and a drop.

The micro USB input allows the M to be used as a stand alone, asynchronous digital-to-analog converter with the ability to play back virtually any file type, including DSD, 128DSD, DXD and 32Bit 384KHz.

Calyx M Full Review (12:41)
Calyx, most well known for their variety of DACs from the inexpensive to the top-of-the-line Femto DAC surprised us all with a high-end portable player. I was lucky enough to borrow a unit directly from Calyx. Apologies that the sound impressions aren't as detailed as I would have wished them to be. Just after I shot the video I realised that holding one's finger on a track brings up a list of options, such as adding it to a playlist which I'd missed, firmware 0.95 being only a few days old and this month being crazy busy for me. Some things I missed: The battery life has been reported to be about 4.5 hours of playback and the player software doesn't cache thumbnails, requiring them to be reloaded at every restart. It is also missing the ability to browse through folders and adjust the screen brightness (which is probably partially responsible for the less than great battery life).
