    • Shanling M30

      Shanling M30 is based on more than 30 years of Shanling's experience in designing high end audio, achieving top sound quality, with calm and balanced presentation.

      A unique modular device, Shanling M30 is upgradeable and customizable over time. Always keeping up with the latest technologies and your preferences. Designed as an all-in-one device, it’s not only a high-performing DAC and headphone amplifier, but also a stand alone music player with access to different music streaming services. And fully powered by its own batteries and not AC power, the M30 assures clean and stable power for the best audio performance.

      M30 is running a closed Android system, deeply customized for optimal sound quality and smooth operation. It comes ready with wide support for playback of local files and range of music streaming services. By opting for a fully battery powered design, M30 gets the cleanest and most stable power in all conditions. Providing the best sound quality without any need for additional power conditioning.

      Evolving For The Future.

      All-In-One Device
      Designed as an all-in-one device, it’s not only a high-performing DAC and headphone amplifier, but also a standalone music player with access to different music streaming services. And fully powered by its own batteries, assuring clean and stable power for the best audio performance.

      Fully Fledged DAC
      The DAC module is designed around Japanese AKM AKK4497 DACs, running in fully balanced mode and combined with Ti OPA2211 amplifiers and range of top-quality parts.

      Almighty Amplifier
      The headphone amplifier section of M30 has been built with newly designed I/V conversion stage and in-house developed CPAF low-pass filtering technology. It's one of our most versatile amplifiers, working smoothly with sensitive earphones, yet powerful enough for the most demanding audiophile headphones.

      Side Options
      Two smaller modules on sides of the M30 allowed us to add something little bit extra to the overall package. Spare Modules are ready for any new revolutionary technology, that might come to the M30 in the future. Tube Modules are a pair of Japanese KORG 6P1 tubes for fans of more mellow and softer sound.

      Ready For All Connections
      M30 can easily fit into any current home audio chain, just pick one of the six different headphone connectors with a range of digital inputs and analogue inputs or outputs.

      Every Last Detail Matters
      Shanling knows that even the smallest details can have impact on the overall performance. Carefully cut by CNC machines from a single piece of metal, for the best stability and interference resistance, while single crystal copper has been used for internal wiring, for clean signal transmission.
