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.

The Shanling M7 features a fully balanced 4-channel amplifier circuit based on Shanling's OP+BUF architecture. ADI ADA4896-2 amplifiers in a highly optimised I/V conversion stage, carefully matched with each resistor and capacitor for the ultimate performance, designed for superior sound quality with zero unwanted noise thanks to the in-house developed I/V stage. With 0.01% accuracy and stability, thin-film resistors (TFR) represent an integral part of M7's design. Panasonic tantalum-polymer capacitors are highly accurate, less sensitive to temperature variations, and highly dependable for long-term use, providing device stability while delivering outstanding audio performance.

CPAF TECHNOLOGY FUSED WITH DUAL-CHANNEL J-FET OPAMP AND JAPANESE KDS CRYSTAL OSCILLATORS TO DELIVER PRISTINE AUDIO PERFORMANCE

To solve the group delay issue of traditional low-pass filtering, their engineers designed a new audio circuit, utilising the CPAF technology - Constant phase in all frequencies with MUSES8920. Two Japanese KDS active crystal oscillators improved Shanling's algorithm providing better accuracy and enhanced performance when decoding PCM or DSD data, up to 32bit/768kHz and DSD512. To provide jitter-free and consistent performance, the engineers incorporated four top-grade ELNA Slimic 2 capacitors in the M7's audio circuit. To add to the performance aspect the engineers at Shanling have specifically designed the M7 circuit with opamps that have low distortion, powerful output and reduced cross-talk. To enhance the performance of the ESS Sabre DAC they have fused a voltage regulator in the circuitry. M7 features a high-speed buffer incorporated into the circuitry at the driver stage for delivering high output power.
