FEATURES BRAND-NEW HIGH-VOLTAGE LINEARIN OPAMPS AND IMPROVED OP+BUF ARCHITECTURE FUSED WITH TI-OPA1612 THAT Provide DISTORTION-FREE LINEAR POWER OUTPUT

An audio amplifier maintains the detail of the smaller signal while boosting the loudness to a practical level known as linearity. The output signal is a more accurate reflection of the input signal the higher the linearity of the amplifier. Taking this design aspect into consideration a team of engineers at Shanling developed the M6 Ultra to accommodate Quad OPA1612 and Dual OPA2211 in its circuitry. The DAC section of M6 Ultra was designed with four TI-OPA1612, splitting the balanced audio signal between all four DACs achieving a completely independent balanced output. Two TI-OPA2211 are incorporated in its circuitry for low noise and high bandwidth performance. The circuitry is surrounded by top-quality Panasonic tantalum-polymer capacitors, two for each of the four DACs. The M6 Ultra adapts a brand-new high-voltage Linearin LTA8092 opamps, partnered with a well-proven BUF634A, combined with the AKM DACs for a slightly warmer and relaxed sound following in tracks of the M8 and the original lineup of AKM-based M6 & M6 Pro. TI-BUF634A High-Speed Buffer Positioned at the driver stage provides proper current output creating the warmer and thicker sound of the M6 Ultra. Two Japanese KDS active crystal oscillators, 3rd Generation FPGA, and improved Shanling's algorithm provide better accuracy, reduced jitter and enhanced performance of the digital signal transmission. High-quality 100 F WE capacitors are used for refined sound and precise soundstage. The M6 Ultra hosts a balanced amplification circuitry, capable of continuous high power output, with plentiful energy reserves for all music genres. The tone is clean and precise for the most dynamic compositions on the M6 Ultra. A newly designed amplifier allows M6 Ultra to reach higher power outputs than older AKM-based M6 models. The M6 Ultra offers better performance with demanding full-size headphones. It provides an output power of 240mW@32 Ohms Single-Ended 3.5mm and 720mW @32 Ohms Balanced 4.4mm.

DELIVERING 13.5 HOURS OF PLAYTIME WITH FAST CHARGING CAPABILITIES AND EMBEDDED WITH A 5" TOUCH SCREEN LCD DISPLAY

The most important aspect of portable digital audio players is the way they sound, but you also need enough battery power for an uninterrupted listening experience. This design concept is what the engineers at Shanling paid attention to in engineering M6 Ultra to accommodate a 5650mAh battery yielding over 13.5 hours of playtime (single-ended) and 9 hours (balanced). The M6 Ultra delivers a whopping 58.5 hours of playtime when operated in Bluetooth transmitter mode. However, the play time varies with different resolutions, volumes and headphone/IEM loads. The M6 Ultra supports Qualcomm QC3.0 18W quick charge protocol which charges the device rapidly when the player is low on juice. What about getting a DAP with a touchscreen and high-resolution display? You have nowhere to look for as the M6 Ultra features a 5-inch LCD panel from a Sharp full-screen colourful display, with a thin bezel, floating screen, and touch panel providing a better user experience.

Asahi Kasei Chip for the win!!

The Asahi Kasei quad chip makes the listening an exceptional experience, and I am saying this after listening to almost all Sabre and Burr Brown chips.
The UI is smooth with Android 10 trinket and 665 snapdragon processor.
3.5Gigs LG Ram is more thn enuff to drive your music player apps. However, the native Shanling App does not offer gapless playing which cud be a bummer. I use power amp and tidal so I dnt have an issue there.
Only gripe I have is the lack of a protective case with such a purchase!otherwise this M6 Ultra is a solid purchase and has a warmer overall,velvety tone to the music. With a balanced cable this DAP will make sure that u feel that u are sitting in the studio production house while listening to the music!!
Shanling has reached a zenith with this upgrade from its previous M6 versions.
Thanks!

Hey Manish, thank you so much for the awesome review!

Smooth as silk!

After using Shanling M3X for almost 2 years, I was looking to upgrade my DAP experience in a price range of INR 70k to 80k. Although I had a great experience with Shanling previously, I was open to other brands as well. After contemplating between Sony's new DAP, Shanling M7 (a higher budget DAP) and Shanling M6 Ultra, finally decided to go with the latter due to following factors: 1. Quad AKM DAC chips which would diversify Dual ESS Sabres which came with M3X; 2. More power than Sony's; 3. Fit perfectly in my budget as compared to M7.

Pros:
1. Ample power to drive my full-sized headphones such as Hifiman Sundara and Sennheiser 660S. No questions about IEMs.
2. Silky smooth, warm and fuller sound as compared to M3X which is more linear.
3. Works very well with neutral IEMs and headphones (connected comment in cons).

Cons:
1. Gets warm quickly and comes without a cover, which I had to buy separately.
2. Due to its warm sound signature, some IEMs or headphones which are already bass forward might sound bassy if the user is looking for a neutral delivery.

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!
