My New DAP: Meizu M6

June 22, 2007

Meizu miniPlayer/M6 Black

Remember my old post about the iPhone clone from China? Well the phone’s not out yet but I actually bought a 4 GB model of Meizu’s miniPlayer (mine pictured above). Here are the main reasons why I bought it:

  • There is a great community.
  • Good Reviews.
  • Ogg Vorbis and FLAC playback (which triggers the F/OSS side of me). They even have a page explaining about FLAC on their web site which is pretty cool.
  • Firmware updates doesn’t need any “Windows specific” softwares. All you need is to download, extract and copy. Plus the they actually update their firmware pretty often too!
  • Drag and drop/copy and paste music loading.
  • Standard USB cable (easy to find and replace)
  • Customizable wallpaper
  • It looks like an iPod sleek, cool, hip, sexy
  • It comes in black
  • And last but not least: very, very cheap. Rp. 835k or roughly US$ 90. I bought this one straight from Mainland China, which explains the price. The same model is sold at Mangga Dua or Ratu Plaza at around Rp. 1.600k.

A simple tip to Linux users: add a file named “.is_audio_player” at the root directory of your DAP. It’ll make Rhythmbox and Banshee recognize it as an audio player device and load the song list.

As an update to my old post: no I haven’t bought any new mobile phones. Still sticking with my old T68i (the keypad is killing me though).

  3. uh, I want one *droll*
    but I’ll wait for the smaller version (M3? forgot the name). Since I don’t need the video playback capability, I don’t need big screen :)

    M3 or MusicCard:

    That one is already out. A friend of mine bought the 8GB M3. It is tinner than the M6 but I don’t like the controls (the touch strip) of M3.
