Introducing Shanling M6 (21)

Why are we releasing new version of M6?

In October 2020, fire broke out at AKM’s factory in Japan. This event had a significant impact on availability of AKM DAC chips - discontinuation of certain models, shortage of DAC chips on the whole market and extreme price increase in some cases.

AKM DACs were important part of Shanling’s audio designs for many years, being the core component in all of our higher positioned portable players. At the time of fire, we had decent stock of all different DACs to keep the production going, but we knew that we will be forced to switch to different DACs at some point.

Shanling M6 Android player will be the first product to undergo this change. New version, marked as M6 (21), will be released in China in March and international release will follow in April. If you wish to get the original AKM based M6, you will need to look at a current stock at dealers or distributors and purchase one before they are all sold out.

What is different on M6 (21)?

- Pair of ESS Sabre ES9038Q2M DACs

- New amplifier circuit to go with this new DAC

- MQA support

- Available only as black body with gold wheel

All other aspects are unchanged.

M6 (21) will support MQA, can this be added to original M6?

No, it’s not possible. MQA certification is tied to the M6 (21) and its analogue circuit, it can’t be used for original M6.

Premium components, Purest sound quality

M6 uses two AKM AK4495SEQ DACS, which proved to be truly excellent DACS when we used them in our high-end projects in two-channel audio. In M6, we combined them with two Japanese KDS low phase noise active crystal oscillators and special FPGA coding technology independently developed by Shanling. Each additional component was selected very carefully and white copper shielding was added on top of audio circuit, all with intentions to achieve maximum performance of these outstanding and unique DACS.
With two TI OPA1612 acting as low-pass filters andtwo ADI AD8397 amplifiers, M6 provides extremely clean balanced output with lots of power and very quiet background. On top of that, M6 uses additional ADI AD8397 amplifier, enabling use of both DAC chips even in single-ended mode, providing enhanced sound quality even for unbalanced headphones.

Every component matters

Japanese ELNA Silmic II capacitors
High grade Silmic I capacitors were developed specifically for use in audio products and you can often find them in high-end Hi-Fi machines. To assure premium sound quality of M6, it uses these Silmic II capacitors, four of them in total.
Panasonic Tantalum-Polymer capacitors
Tantalum-Polymer capacitors, while more expensive and harder to utilize properly than their simpler counterparts, offer many important characteristics that are crucial for smooth sound tuning of Shanling products.

Connectors trifecta

 With 3.5 mm single- ended output and both 2.5 mm and 4.4mm balanced outputs, M6 can be connected to much wider range of headphones and earphones without any need for additional adapter.

Full Android System Access all your favorite Apps

Want to use some special software music player? In need of sophisticated equalizer app? Or simply want to enjoy convenience of music streaming services? All of that is now available thanks to full open Android OS. We customized Android system to avoid any sound quality problems caused by its build-in sample rate conversion. With M6, all sounds from any app are output without any conversion, all the way up to 768 kHz.

High quality Two-way Bluetooth connection

Easily connect M6 to any Bluetooth headphones and speakers and enjoy premium sound quality thanks to support of advanced Bluetooth codecs. Or turn M6 into Hi-Fi Bluetooth amplifier when paired with any smartphone or tablet. Codec support: Two Way - LDAC & SBC; Transmit only - HWA LHDC, aptX HD & aptX

Bigger battery Faster charging

Using massive 4000 mAh battery, M6 can last up to 12 hours of continuous play. And thanks to the support of Qualcomm's Quick charge 3.0, charging times becomes significantly shorter.

Shipping FAQ

Which countries do you ship to?

We are generally able to ship to most countries via Express Shipping, and many countries via Standard Shipping. You may clarify this with our team to check whether Standard Shipping is available to your country.

We cannot ship to addresses that are "PO boxes or APO/FPO".

*Note: Generally, we can only do Selected Shipping to India and Russia. We can only do Express Shipping to Africa, Argentina, Hawaii, Kuwait, Mauritius, Montenegro and Sri Lanka, to name a few.
This may be subjected to changes due to unpredictable issues such as Covid, war, and etc.

How much does shipping cost?

We have two shipping methods - Standard Shipping and Express Shipping.

Standard Shipping is free for most countries, while Express Shipping is 15-35USD depending on your country. If your order is over 270USD, Express Shipping is free*. 

*This applies for most countries. However, large items such as headphones and desktop DAC/AMPs (e.g. HarmonicDyne G200, MUSICIAN MDP-2, and etc.) are excluded.

Shipping fees exclude import taxes or processing fees that may be applicable for your country. Linsoul is not responsible for such fees. Should you refuse to pay the tax/customs fees, shipping fees will still be deducted from the amount paid for the two-way freight charges. The cost of the freight charges may be more than the amount reflected on your order due to tax and other miscellaneous fees.

Some parcels claimed to be “returned to the seller” may be destroyed by the post office or customs officers when buyers refuse to accept their parcels or fail to pay for their taxes. No refund will be processed for such cases.

Standard Shipping via YunExpress is a tax-inclusive option for some countries. However, Linsoul will not be responsible for additional administrative or handling fees charged by your local courier company or customs. Please kindly check this with your local customs.

For certain remote areas, there may be additional charges via Express Shipping. We will contact you if there is a need to make additional payments. 
Please contact us before placing an order, should you have any queries regarding shipping.  

How long does it take to receive the order after it is placed?

For in-stock products, your order will be shipped within 3 working days. You may check with our staff regarding the in-stock status of any products. 

Customized items will take a longer time. Please contact our staff for more information.

On normal non-sale days, once your parcel has been shipped out:

  • For Standard Shipping, it takes about 2-4 weeks for items to be delivered after shipping out. For some countries, it might take up to 2-3 months, depending on your country, its customs and other factors.* The duration for transit is something beyond our control. Linsoul will not be making refunds for such cases. Please consider an upgrade to Express Shipping or keep the waiting time in mind.
  • For Express Shipping, it takes about 3-7 days for items to be delivered after shipping out.

*Note: Timings might be affected due to festive seasons or other unforeseen circumstances

What happens if the parcel has been shipped but not delivered?
  1. First, kindly contact your local courier using the local tracking number.
