Premium components, Purest sound quality
M6 uses two AKM AK4495SEQ DACS, which proved to be truly excellent DACS when we used them in our high-end projects in two-channel audio. In M6, we combined them with two Japanese KDS low phase noise active crystal oscillators and special FPGA coding technology independently developed by Shanling. Each additional component was selected very carefully and white copper shielding was added on top of audio circuit, all with intentions to achieve maximum performance of these outstanding and unique DACS.
With two TI OPA1612 acting as low-pass filters andtwo ADI AD8397 amplifiers, M6 provides extremely clean balanced output with lots of power and very quiet background. On top of that, M6 uses additional ADI AD8397 amplifier, enabling use of both DAC chips even in single-ended mode, providing enhanced sound quality even for unbalanced headphones.
Every component matters
Japanese ELNA Silmic II capacitors
High grade Silmic I capacitors were developed specifically for use in audio products and you can often find them in high-end Hi-Fi machines. To assure premium sound quality of M6, it uses these Silmic II capacitors, four of them in total.
Panasonic Tantalum-Polymer capacitors
Tantalum-Polymer capacitors, while more expensive and harder to utilize properly than their simpler counterparts, offer many important characteristics that are crucial for smooth sound tuning of Shanling products.
With 3.5 mm single- ended output and both 2.5 mm and 4.4mm balanced outputs, M6 can be connected to much wider range of headphones and earphones without any need for additional adapter.

All of that is now available thanks to full open Android OS. We customized Android system to avoid any sound quality problems caused by its build-in sample rate conversion.

Bigger battery Faster charging
Using massive 4000 mAh battery, M6 can last up to 12 hours of continuous play. And thanks to the support of Qualcomm's Quick charge 3.0, charging times becomes significantly shorter.
Shanling M6 Android Portable Hi-Res Music Player
Shanling does a fantastic job with their digital audio players. The M6 is great bang for the buck. A very pleasant, slightly warm signature. Above average soundstage and overall good imaging. Size is perfect and the build quality is fantastic. The Hiby at this price has a faster UI but the Shanling M6 is still light speed faster than Astell and Kern DAPS around this price. I wouldn't hesitate grabbing one if you're looking for a friendly priced DAP that really has it all.
This is my first android-based player and I am very impressed so far. Battery life seems good, the sound is amazing and I love the ability to load apps on it for convenience. I was able to load 100+GBs of FLAC music very quickly and think the interface is great. The only possible downside is the size. It is not the most portable player, but the build quality is solid so I can't complain.
