Shanling now offers a new firmware for the Shanling M30 Modular Desktop HiFi Streaming Player, which brings a number of interesting innovations, but also various detail improvements.
Shanling presented the Shanling M30 Modular Desktop HiFi Streaming Player at the beginning of 2021 as a particularly flexible, exciting solution, because as the name suggests, it is not a conventional portable hi-res audio player, a so-called DAP (Digital Audio Player), but rather a desktop audio solution. Shanling wanted to celebrate its re-entry into the field of high-quality home audio and desktop hi-fi solutions and therefore relied on a modular, expandable solution, the Shanling M30 Modular Desktop HiFi Streaming Player.
Shanling M30 Modular Desktop HiFi Streaming Player as an audiophile All-in-One
When we introduced the Shanling M30 Modular Desktop HiFi Streaming Player, we referred to it as an audiophile all-in-one, because it is an all-in-one solution that naturally incorporates much of what Shanling has to offer in the field of portable hi-res audio players. To put it in a nutshell, the new Shanling M30 Modular Desktop HiFi Streaming Player is a high-performance DAC, a headphone amplifier, but first and foremost a stand-alone hi-res audio music player for accessing your own content and various streaming services.
Shanling M30 Firmware v1.24
A new firmware is now available for this solution, which brings a number of innovations and improvements in detail. Many of them are dedicated to the access to the network, for example, in order to be able to play back one’s own content particularly comfortably.
With the new Shanling M30 firmware v1.24, support for NAS systems (Network Attached Storage) is added, which can be accessed directly via SMB. Access to NAS systems via UPnP AV is also said to have been improved with this new firmware, as is the direct integration of storage media formatted with the exFAT file system.
In addition to an optimised search, easier access to the settings of the audio outputs, improvements and bug fixes around the implementation of various streaming services, the new firmware also offers support for ISO DST.
Pricing and availability
The new Shanling M30 firmware v1.24 is of course available to users free of charge, whereby the update can be carried out directly via the corresponding menu of the Shanling M30 Modular Desktop HiFi Streaming Player as an OTA update (over-the-air update), or the corresponding data can be downloaded directly from the manufacturer’s website.
Getting to the point
Already at the presentation of the Shanling M30 Modular Desktop HiFi Streaming Player, Shanling stated that they had created a solution that was modular and powerful enough to be open for future expansions. Well, now it is a normal firmware update that is available for the Shanling M30 Modular Desktop HiFi Streaming Player, but it certainly brings some interesting innovations and improvements.
