I'm currently grabbing my M6 more than my M11pro, not sure why, both sound fantastic. Use Neutron on both, transferred PEQ over but dropped 33hz by 1db and increased 16khz by 1db on M6 compared to M11pro:L3000:
and that the M6 costs less than the M11 Pro !!

Shan Ling M6 Android lossless music player, V2.6 firmware released.


Shanling M6 fourth edition firmware, released in V2.6. After two rounds of internal testing, Shan Ling finally rushed to the weekend before putting the V2.6 firmware on schedule. Here, I would like to thank all the M6 users who gave us timely feedback and the engineers who worked overtime to get the firmware. This version of the firmware mainly optimizes the opposite of the sporadic channel, silent song playback, Bluetooth amp related logic, touch feedback and other issues. After this version of the firmware, the M6 system tends to be stable, and everyone can enjoy the music with M6, and download the latest firmware upgrade experience!


M6 V2.6 firmware update content

1. Optimize the occasional left and right channel inverse problems when playing some songs;
2. Optimize the QQ music app up and down when switching the songs sometimes silent;
3. Optimize the cat ears, watercress, local video playback silent problem;
4, optimize the mountain spirit music APP switches the up and down songs and sometimes silent problems when the screen is off;
5. Optimize the occasional noise problem of playing DSD;
6. Optimize the screen pause and press the play without playing the problem;
7. Optimize the TP sliding algorithm to fix the occasional insensitive problem;
8 Repair most third-party apps to sweep the APP crash problem;
9. Add a new lock screen UI;
10. Fix some cue format to switch to the previous song;

11, repair the related logic of the folder jump and the problem of changing the song;

12. Fix the problem of playing the noise caused by the notification tone;
13. Fix the deterioration of the sound quality of the dts format;
14. Fix the problem of the abnormal icon in the status bar of the system;
15. Optimize the logic related to the Bluetooth amp mode;
16. Solve the mountain spirit music app Partial crash bugs, improve stability;
17, other small bugs;


download link:

1. Official website address: official website download

2, Baidu cloud address: Baidu cloud download


Upgrade method:

1, manual card brush upgrade (recommended)

Download the firmware in Shanling official website or Baidu cloud, and then upgrade the file with the suffix "M6_V2.6 upgrade firmware package.zip" (directly into the M6 as an upgrade file, do not decompress), and put the M6 body memory into the whole. Or an external memory card (recommended in the root directory). Click "Technical Support" - "Firmware Upgrade" - "Local Upgrade", browse the folder, select the downloaded "M6_V2.6 Upgrade Firmware Package.zip" upgrade file, and wait for the update.


2, OTA online upgrade (and too many upgrades will seriously affect the update speed)

Click on "Technical Support" - "Firmware Upgrade" - "Online Upgrade". When the system detects that there is updateable firmware, click Update.

* Retain at least 20% power and 1G space for firmware upgrades.

@Shanling will there be bluetooth AAC support in the future ? AAC is not mentioned in the bluetooth codec specs on the first page.

Is it just me or do the specs of this look worse than the m5s? It has less power and higher output impedance.

Nice and powerful here, I've read somewhere those specs are per channel, not combined power output.

I haven’t read or heard a single review that puts the M5s above the M6 in terms of SQ, despite the delta in specs.

@Shanling Is the M6 going to come in different colors? I would love to get it in midnight blue with a case in the same color.
Currently just trying to keep up with demand.

There might be some other colours in the future, but most likely some limited edition and really not sure when could it be.

@Shanling will there be bluetooth AAC support in the future ? AAC is not mentioned in the bluetooth codec specs on the first page.
Not in the near future. Not sure if at all.

M6 has actually more power.

M6 160 mW @32ohm SE / 350mW@32Ohm Bal
M5s 130 mW @32ohm SE / 300mW@32Ohm Bal

It's correct M6 has higher output impedance at 1 / 2 ohms, due to some needed changes in amplifier circuit regarding relay.

Excuse me, i must have misread the numbers

Ok so will the M6 generate more noise or less than the M5S? I know one part of your design is to have quiet background for sensitive iems so will the M6 pair well with for example Andromedas?

Also, speaking of amplifier design, the THD rating of 0.01%, is that at 1mw of power or at full output?
Sorry, already been answered.

Background noise about the same between M5s and M6. To get quietest background, single ended and low gain is the best setting.

Noted, thank you.
Just to clarify, the 0.01% THD number is at full output power right?
Does the M6 have a line out mode as well? So it can be used as a source for a bigger amplifier

It has Lineout mode for use with amplifiers / active speakers. No dedicated Lineout circuit.
