Introducing Shanling M3X
Android Hi-Res Portable Player



M3X is our newest Android Hi-Res portable player, built on the same platform as our previous three Android models. But this time we are aiming at the more affordable part of the market, with a little bit less focus on the most demanding DAC chipsets and the most powerful amplifiers.

M3X was designed as a scaled down version of our flagship M8, to be a more practical and smaller player, with only 4.2-inch touch screen. Making it 25% smaller and lighter than our older M6 and M6 Pro players.

M3X is a first Hi-Res player to use the new ESS Sabre ES9219C DAC/AMP, a new generation of a very popular chip that was previously used in our M0, UP4 and other products. Using two of these chips, to offer a balanced 4.4mm output for better sound and more power. And also including full 16x MQA unfolding, for all fans of the Hi-Res music streaming.

M3X will stand out with its class leading battery life, offering up to 23 hours of playback on a single charge.

Price - 339 USD / Euro

If I'm not mistaken, the last time Shanling teased a new DAP the a picture of a X, the result ended up being the M2X. My guess is that this is a non-android DAP that is a M3X or M5X.

Our last few portable players came with big screens and little bit heavier builds.

Now it's time to go for something little bit smaller, more practical and better fitting into your pockets.
