The EM5 is part of Shanling’ss new desktop line, build around the same streaming player we introduced with the Shanling M30. EM5 was designed as a DAC/AMP for high-end headphones, with a range of different connectors, including balanced XLR and 4.4mm. It can also be used as a DAC and pre-amplifier when combined with a separate power amplifier or active speakers. Shanling EM5 comes with a 4.7″ touch screen.

You can control EM5 both from the touch screen or from the Eddict Plater app both for iOS and Android.
