The M0 was the most popular product Shanling ever released. It convinced people to upgrade from their Sansa Clips to a proper Hi-Fi player, it was used as a USB Transport for DACs costing 10x its price, it was even glued to the shell of headphones, turning them into a DIY all-in-one rig.
The new M0 Pro follows closely in its steps, but this time Shanling managed to squeeze in a full balanced audio circuit. With two pieces of ESS ES9219C DAC/AMPs, M0 Pro will be able to provide improved sound quality and increased output power.
To utilize the balanced output, while keeping the overall size of M0 Pro the same as its predecessor, Shanling got creative and implemented a brand-new type of 3.5mm connector, combining both single-ended and balanced connections into one. Working perfectly with all your standard single-ended 3.5mm connectors, while allowing for a proper balanced connection through a special 5-pin 3.5mm to 4.4mm adapter (Adapter sold separately).
And Shanling can’t forget the bi-directional Bluetooth, such an important feature of the original. M0 Pro now packs an upgraded Bluetooth 5.0 chip, assuring compatibility with the latest Bluetooth headphones and improving connectivity.
