VELVET SOUND TECHNOLOGY FUSED WITH HIGH-QUALITY COMPONENTS FOR REMARKABLE SOUND

The Shanling EM5 features an audio conversion stage that relies on a high-quality AK4493EQ chip. These newer generations of AKM 32bit chips feature "Velvet Sound technology" and CPAF low-pass filtering technology, ensuring a low level of distortion with a large dynamic range while ensuring clean sound reproduction. The digital to analogue circuit of EM5 is also accompanied by Panasonic Tantalum-Polymer capacitors, allowing high accuracy and less sensitivity to temperature fluctuations and therefore contributing to reduced signal-to-noise ratio. With 0.01% accuracy and great stability, thin-film resistors represent a key part of EM5’s design. Finally, the analogue signal at the output of the DAC circuit embeds an OP+BUF audio circuit, delivering a remarkably controlled and impressive output.

Wireless connectivity is included allowing the EM5 to receive audio streams via a WiFi (2.4 & 5G) connection & two-way Bluetooth 4.2 onboard the circuit.

AIRGAP DESIGN AND DISCRETE POWER SUPPLY FOR JITTER-FREE AUDIO

To achieve the highest level of audio performance in Shanling EM5, the engineers decided to split the power supply between two sections. Analogue components are powered by a small and highly efficient toroidal transformer, combined with high-performing German capacitors, helping to achieve cleaner and smoother sound. Two Japanese KDS active crystal oscillators in conjunction with Shanling’s improved algorithm provides a more accurate clock signal and reduces jitter. All this is housed in a chassis that features an Air Gap design, allowing for a faster and more effective heat dissipation effect in the compact body of EM5.
