Biggest upgrade from M6, Shanling M6 Pro non-destructive music player with AG frosted tempered glass, dual Hi-res certification, AGLO Audio Architecture and more premium class features launched. Today we discuss Shanling M6 Pro full specifications in detail along with promotional video and price.
Shanling M6 Pro Key Features
- Fifth generation design. On the strictly symmetrical fuselage, a new touch of matte glass, and the screen plus the rounded mountain R angle, make the calm and atmospheric “Virgo” M6 Pro a little more vivid.
- AG matte frosting process. The tempered frosted glass has a delicate and dry skin feel. Beauty, not only visible, but also the soft touch that I couldn’t help but touch.
- Mountain spirit classic wheel design. In the process of inheritance, disruptive upgrade. The new in-line design can beautify the appearance while reducing false touches. High-quality shaft body brings a stronger sense of paragraph, crisp and crisp when pressed.
- 720P Sharp IPS display. 4.7 inches, tempered glass panel, 16 million colors, On Cell capacitive touch screen, nano anti-fingerprint oleophobic layer. High-definition vision, making music more vivid.
- The glorious light is clear at a glance. Each Bluetooth coding protocol corresponds to different colors of light. Interpret the shape of sound with fluorescent lights to make the connection status clearly visible.
- Double Hi-Res audio certification. M6 Pro has obtained “Hi-Res Audio” certification from the Japan Audio Association, and also supports “Hi-Res Wireless Audio” wireless high-resolution certification. Wired or wireless, both have good sound quality.
In addition to the exquisite and beautiful appearance, the M6 Pro also has dual AK4497 EQ DAC, Low / High / Turbo Gain switching, single and dual DAC switching, AGLO audio technology, 4-way fully balanced amp circuit, CPAF low-pass filter technology and other hard core strengths.
Shanling M6 Pro AGLO Audio Architecture
We all know (it does not matter if you don’t know), there are multiple sampling rate standards for digital audio, such as 44.1KHz, 88.2KHz, 768KHz, etc., but DAC Interruptions or noise will occur when switching between different sampling rates. Therefore, a traditional mobile phone or computer will convert all different audio sources to the same sampling rate and then mix them, and then send them to the DAC for processing.
This is SRC (sampling rate conversion), a reasonable and annoying existence that sacrifices high-fidelity sound quality for multi-threaded audio work. So, as an Android player with a double small gold label, how does the M6 Pro handle audio?
The Shanling Acoustics team deeply optimized and customized the new AGLO – Android global lossless audio architecture. In this audio framework, the audio signals output by the M6 Pro’s built-in mountain music app, USB DAC, and third-party music apps you downloaded (such as Netease Cloud, QQ, Kugou Music, etc.) will completely bypass the Android system itself.
The SRC channel directly through the rail-to-rail channel to the HAL (hardware abstraction layer), while using FPGA coding technology with independent intellectual property rights to provide more accurate clock signals, high-standard sampling rate PCM data output and DSD decoding.
In this way, bypassing the Android SRC limitation, the M6 Pro can be output at the native sampling rate, coupled with the CPAF low-pass filtering technology developed by Shanling and the new OP + BUF audio architecture, the M6 Pro can be fully fired.
In fact, when the M6 was launched in Japan earlier, it was widely praised for its perfect adaptation to third-party software such as Amazon Music HD and its ability to bypass the Android SRC limit output and ultra-high-definition lossless sound quality. However, Shanling did not publicize too much at that time. At that time, the Japanese VGP team, who was visiting Shanling, praised AGLO even more, hoping that the excellent technology could be understood by more users.
