Part of Shanling's Desktop Line, EM5 is a complete music centre designed around the ultimate home headphone experience. Shanling EM5 steaming DAC/Amp offers compatibility with a wide variety of impedances and connections, including balanced XLR and 4.4mm. EM5 also functions as as a DAC and pre-amplifier when combined with a separate power amplifier or active speakers.
To achieve the ideal sound performance in such complicated device, Shanling decided to split the power supply between two sections. Analogue components are powered by a small and highly efficient toroidal transformer, in combination with high-performing German capacitors, helping to achieve cleaner and smoother sound.
Complete audio performance.
