DAC Chip
You may not even realise it, but most of us use a digital-to-analogue converter (commonly known as a DAC) daily. Built into your computers, tablets and smartphones, a DAC is fundamental to unlocking the convenience of digital music. Any device that acts as a digital sound source will need a DAC to convert digital audio to analog. A DAC converts the digital information stored in “0s and 1s” into an analog signal that's passed to speakers or headphones and ultimately our ear. In short, DACs play a large part in making digital music hearable. 

While this technical process is undoubtedly impressive, the DAC embedded into your smartphones or laptops is nowhere good enough to listen to your favourite music recordings in high quality. So, if you want to listen to music in high quality, an external DAC is essential to allow headphones or speakers to perform at their potential. An external DAC, first and foremost, will improve audio quality dramatically.
Pair with Laptop via USB

A majority of people use a laptop as the primary source device to listen to music or watch movies. Since the laptop is an essential part of the audio chain there are headphones and devices designed to work a laptop or computer system flawlessly. With the availability of USB connectivity, it becomes easier to pair various devices like an Amp, DAC or even headphones without worrying about drivers or any additional piece of software.

This design feature allows you to have complete control over the desired volume according to your listening preferences.

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.

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.
