There is a brand-new generation of DAC/AMPs, and the Shanling M3X is the first portable audio player to utilize them. These are the new Sabre DAC/AMPs from ESS Technology, built to be extremely efficient and audiophile-grade.Making use of these chips means that we can provide you with the beloved Shanling sound, but improve majorly on battery life. Additionally, it means there is hardware support for the MQA audio codec.
【AVX Tantalum Capacitors】
The audio circuit of the M3X makes use of large-capacity tantalum capacitors which enhance the quality of low-frequency signals, equating to better bass performance.
Dual DS Crystal Oscillators, Paired with Shanling's FPGA Coding Technology
The Shanling M3X makes use of a pair of Japanese KDS active crystal oscillators, which work together with Shanling’s FPGA coding tech to allow for enhanced performance when decoding either PCM or DSD data.
【Full MQA Hardware Support】
All thanks to the ESS Sabre DAC/AMP, the M3X has native support for MQA. You’ll get MQA playback with 16x rendering. If there’s one thing that the Shanling M3X is, it is versatile, providing you with all the options for the very best music playback.
【Balanced Audio Output】
The audio a device can produce is only as good as its output, and in this case, the M3X has the option for balanced audio output through a 4.4.mm jack. This protects against interference so that you only get the purest of signals. There is also a single-ended 3.5mm jack for the most compatibility.
【Hi-Fi Bluetooth and USB DAC】
If you don't have the chance to take advantage of a wired connection, the Bluetooth capabilities of the M3X won’t let you down, thanks to LDAC support, guaranteeing high-quality sound.You can also use this device as a USB DAC with your computer, which supports up to 32-bit audio at 384kHz and DSD 256.
