Product Details

↓ Details provided by Shanling

When we released our flagship M9 portable player at the end of last year, it represented a big step forward for our Android DAPs. Coming with a significantly more powerful CPU, allowing us to upgrade to the Android 10, offering more memory and all packed into an aluminium body featuring new “Wave” design.

Now we are going to squeeze these new features into a smaller body with the Shanling M7!

It features the same 5-inch Full-HD screen as our older M8, but in a sleeker “Wave” design, measuring 129 x 78 x 20 mm at 312g. On the inside, it adopts advancements from the M9, including the single-piece aluminium inner body and the single-board integrated acoustic design.

Audio circuit of the M7 is based around ESS Sabre ES9038PRO DAC. The flagship model of the ESS line, power hungry 8-channel beast and DAC that we started to really like last year, when we implemented it into our top-of-the-line CD Player CD3.2 (21). All the experience of adapting it into a classic Hi-Fi machine helped us in optimizing its performance for the M7.

The ES9038 PRO is run in its current-mode operation, combined with a matching ESS ES9311 voltage regulator, a power circuit adapted from the M9 and our in-house developed I/V conversion stage. When paired with our OP + BUF amplifier architecture, which was further optimized for the M7, we are actually getting our best measuring portable player so far.
