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.

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”.
