Shanling developed the system of M8 with AGLO technology, Android Global Lossless Output. Thanks to AGLO, music from all apps will be processed correctly and at its full quality, without any degradation caused by Android’s processes.
Interchangeable Headphone Sockets
Shanling M8 adapts a brand – new system of interchangeable headphone sockets, developed by Shanling. This system makes It possible to provide all the needed connection standards, while keeping cleaner look and better optimized internal design. Four different socket options already come with M8 and more can be added in the future.
Dual AKM AK4499EQ
Analog circuit of M8 was designed around pair of high-performing AKM’s flagship DACs, with in house developed I/V conversion stage and fully balanced amplifier. Offering reference class performance, while keeping traditional Shanling’s smooth, pleasing and slightly warmer sound.
Xmos XUF208 USB Interface.
With the advanced Xmos USV interface, M8 can serve as a true HIFI USB DAC, supporting HI-Res playback all the way p to 32bit / 768 KHz and native DSD512
In-house developed I/V conversion stage
To utilize AKM’s DACs to their fullest potential, Shanling’s engineers focused especially on the current-to-voltage conversion stage. Taking long time optimizing each part of the circuit, testing different materials, checking accuracy of each capacitor and resistor, all of this to achieve the true high-fidelity sound.
