Overall construction follows the standards set by the M9, with an expertly crafted CNC aluminum body, this time shortened by 0.5cm, for a bit more compact dimensions. Audio outputs on M9 Plus were simplified and now offer our standard combination of 3.5mm Single-ended and 4.4mm Balanced outputs.

Long-Lasting Battery and Independent Power Supply for DAC

Shanling Spirit has equipped the M9 Plus with a super high-capacity battery rated at 8350mAh. The M9 Plus has a rated battery life of up to 18 hours on the single-ended output and up to 11 hours through the balanced output. Meanwhile, M9 Plus houses an independent XC9519 power-supply chipset which is specially implemented as a power chip for the DAC section further improving the flagship DAC with a clean uninterrupted power supply.

Shanling’s Extreme Quad DAC Design

Shanling has designed its ultimate flagship M9 Plus audio player with a Quad DAC Chipset. They squeezed FOUR AKM AK4499EX DACs into a portable player, getting access to an 8-channel audio design for the totally independent balanced circuit. Quad DAC design offers an increased current output and overall improved dynamics, better SNR, and lower background noise, with all four DACs being active for the balanced output. And all accompanied by ELNA Silmic II and Panasonic Tantalum capacitors.

Upgraded Amplification Chipset

The M9 Plus adopts Shanling’s trusted in-house developed OP+BUF architecture for the amplification section. To make the sound response smoother and finer sound response with strong output power ratings, it features the MUSES 8920 J-FET and BUF634 combination. The M9 Plus produces up to 1120mW of clean output through the 4.4mm balanced port. It can drive most IEMs, Headphones with ease.

Amazing Performance

M9 Plus houses Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 Octa-core CPU. It is paired with 8GB of RAM to ensure smooth performance with multi-tasking support. The crystal oscillators are upgraded to 90.3168MHz/98.304MHz versions. The in-house developed I/V conversion circuit is now adjusted for the ADA45253 chipset.
