Shanling M6 Ultra high res portable music player. M6 Ultra features 4 new AKM 4493seq dac chips in the dac section, Android 10 software, a powerful 4.4mm balanced output and some pretty smooth curves on its hardware. The screen is a bright 5" size with 1080 x 1920 high resolution. Its small enough to still be easily daily portable but has high end dac and powerful amp tech built in.
A much faster Snapdragon 665 main chip runs the software, for fast, smooth use when streaming audio. The audio tuning has a slightly smoother, warmer sound, so take into consideration when matching your earphones / headphones. It will be a great match for so many IEM's since it does not tend to be bright.
Using it in store with full size headphones, Sennheiser HD800s are at a good volume on M gain, 50/100. Meze 109 Pro sound excellent with this player, about 35/100 on M gain via 3.5mm cable for a full sounding, normal listening level.
The new generation of AKM dac chips are just coming to market and Shanling uses a Quad system for a completely balanced output design to feed the high power amp, with up to 720mW from the balanced output.
