Shanling is back with a high-end digital music player, the M9, taking advantage of the best technologies to offer a unique user experience and rich, immersive listening. Powerful, the DAP is based on an Android 10 system, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor and 8GB of RAM. Ensuring a great fluidity of use, even in multi-tasks, the M9 is also very intuitive. A large storage space of 256GB is also integrated, allowing you to store numerous audio files as well as to download all your favorite applications.
The M9 also benefits from a brand new design, with an impressive 6" 2K LCD screen! A smaller screen is also added in the notch to display basic information like volume, sample rate or time.
The Shanling DAP benefits from the same interchangeable output module as its predecessor, the M8. It allows you to modify the output format to adapt to all types of headphones and offers single-ended 3.5mm jacks as well as balanced 2.5mm and 4.4mm jacks. The gain circuit has been optimized to provide more power, whether balanced or single-ended. An improvement going hand in hand with a more important battery, offering an autonomy of not 18h of reading in single-ended.
The Shanling M9 also benefits from wireless connectivity, with integrated two-way Bluetooth 5.0, supporting aptX, aptX HD, LHDC and LDAC codecs, as well as WiFi with AirPlay and DLNA compatibility.
