The Shanling EM5 is a continuation of Shanling’s desktop device line-up. After the high-end M30, which has been an ambitious project, they released the EM5 and EA5 “streamers”.

Although Shanling names the EM5 as a streamer, the device can basically be turned to every possible scenario. It is a DAP, DAC/Amp and a streamer altogether. I used it mostly as a DAP in my tests so one can say that this is like a cheaper DMP-Z1. Ultimately, Shanling names this device as a “Music Streaming Center”, which is appropriate.

The device uses the AKM4493EQ DAC, CPAF Low-Pass Filtering, 1620 mW of power at 320 ohms, a separated power supply, and 3 headphone outputs (4.4, 6.3 and XLR). Everything is controlled from the screen of the device which is located directly on top. The software is Android and the UI is the same UI from Shanling portable DAPs. The device can also be controlled remotely, via Shanling’s “Eddict Player” application.  The EM5 supports up to DSD512.
