The long awaited upgrade to the M6 line is finally here. M6 Ultra brings a modernized Android platform and marks the return of AKM DACs to the M6 line!

M6 Ultra is Shanling's first portable player adapting the newest generation of AKM DACs. It utilizes four AK4493SEQ chips for a unique Quad-DACs design. This multi-DACs concept was inspired by a few old-school Shanling CD players, with an aim to maximise the potential of DACs for a balanced circuit. Now with four DACs, the signal can be divided four ways between each of them, achieving a completely independent fully balanced output.

The amplifier design was further adjusted for this Quad-DACs array, allowing for a higher power output than was possible on our previous AKM based M6 models. Offering up to 720 mW @ 32 Ohm output.

Following the fire at AKM’s factory in 2020, Shanling had to switch many of their products to the rival DACs from ESS, including our M6 and M6 Pro players. While that allowed them to experiment with some new audio designs, the tuning was never completely matching Shanling’s traditional house sound and it marked a shift in the sound of their portable players.

But the sweet AKM tuning is now back with the M6 Ultra. Returning to a slightly warmer and relaxed sound, taking listeners back to the original AKM M6 models and M8. Serving as a perfect alternative to the ESS Sabre based M7 portable player.

The M6 Ultra follows the high standard set by Shanling's latest Android players. Running on a much faster Snapdragon 665 CPU, with an open Android 10 system and an in-house developed Android Global Lossless Output (AGLO) system for an ideal sound performance. Operated through a nicely bright 5-inch 1080p touch screen and all packed into Shanling’s classic aluminium & glass build, this time inspired by the curves of M3X and M8.

With M6 Ultra a new stunning Emerald Green is added to Shanling's portable players, . It can be combined with a matching green leather case. You can also opt for a more traditional black M6 Ultra and a brown leather case. (Leather case sold separately).

Easily connect to any bluetooth headphones or speakers and enjoy the premium sound quality thanks to the support of the best bluetooth audio codecs in the market. When transmitting the M6 Ultra can handle LDAC, LHDC, aptX HD, aptX and SBC. On Receiver Mode the M6 Ultra can utilize LDAC and SBC codes.
