Shanling Audio M7 ESS Portable Music Player


Unparalleled sound quality with high-resolution audio support


Meticulously Crafted for the Discerning Listener

Shanling M7 Music Player is equipped with 6GB RAM and 128GB, which is a revolutionary breakthrough in the whole series. The M7 is equipped with an open Android 10 system, Bluetooth5.0 and supports DLNA, Airplay, NAS functions, bringing you a real smartphone experience.

The M7 player includes MQA technology, which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams, delivering the sound of the original master recording. ‘MQA’ or ‘MQA Studio’ indicates that the product is decoding and playing an MQA stream or file, and denotes provenance to ensure that the sound is identical to that of the source material. ‘MOA Studio’ indicates it is playing an MQA Studio file, which has either been approved in the studio by the artist/producer or has been verified by the copyright owner.

The M7 follows Shanling’s new design approach, inspired by their 25th anniversary edition Hi-Fi line. Using precise CNC machines, creating the whole main chassis from a single piece of aircraft-grade aluminum, with a complex wave pattern on the sides, all in elegant titanium grey finish. Adding glass panels to the front, back and top of the player for a clean and smooth look.

Outstanding Image Quality

Coming with a beautiful 5-inch LCD panel from Sharp, offering 1920 x 1080 resolution, stunning colours and great viewing angles. Fitted into the floating screen design of the front panel, providing for better user experience.

Flagship ESS Performance

Audio circuits of the M7 are based around ES-9038PRO – the flagship DAC of the ESS Sabre line. Previously adapted for Shanling’s top-of-the-line CD player, providing them with all the needed knowledge and experience for the ideal implementation into the portable form.

Modern CPU Performance

Running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 CPU, with eight cores, 11 nm architecture and Adreno 610 GPU, providing more than enough processing power for any modern applications. It also allows for a longer battery life thanks to the lower power consumption and it’s reduced heat emission is very welcomed in a Hi-Fi grade device.

High Power Demands

With all the power-hungry audio circuits, Shanling had to take the power drain quite seriously – and so they opted for a high-capacity 7000 mAh battery with addition of QC3.0 18W charging to keep you going as long as possible.

High-Speed Connection

Equipped with Qualcomm WCN3980 wireless module, supporting 2.5G/5G Wi-Fi and MIMO technology, assuring fast and stable internet connection.

Android 10 OS Ready For Everything

Running on the Android 10 platform, with a fully open system giving you access to millions of apps to fit all of your needs. And with built-in AGLO technology – Android Global Loseless Output – all music from every app will be process correctly and at its full quality, without any degradation caused by the Android’s built-in sample rate conversion.

Convenience of the Wireless World

M7 comes with a support DLNA and Airplay streaming, it can be synced with their Eddict app for remote control and firmware updates and easy thanks to the Over-The-Air updates.
