Shanling EC Mini

Installment option available at check out page


Over the past 12 months, Shanling fully embraced its classic Hi-Fi heritage and launched an interesting range of CD Players. The journey began with the multifunctional EC3, followed by the highly focused ET3 Transport. Then, during the summer, Shanling introduced its low-budget models CD80 and CA80. Now, it's time for the company to unveil its most unique CD player yet: the first Transportable Multifunctional CD Player powered by batteries, the Shanling EC Mini.

Battery Power for CDs On-the-Go

Fully powered by a pair of 18650 batteries, the EC Mini is Shanling's first transportable CD Player.

The EC Mini works great as a desktop device, compact enough to fit onto cluttered office desks or small bedroom tables. And its fully independent battery power makes it super easy for Shanling to move between desks in the office, switch between rooms in a house, or take it out to a coffee or garden, to enjoy CDs in the fresh air.

As the EC Mini demands just a standard USB output for charging, it makes for a perfect fit into modern cars, which have completely given up on the traditional CD players. With the EC Mini fitted into a car, Shanling can connect it directly to a stereo system over its RCA outputs or pair it with modern car systems over Bluetooth. And thanks to the dedicated In-Vehicle mode, the EC Mini connected over a USB cable can even detect when the car starts up, enabling the automatic Power On/Off function, making for a smooth playback on Shanling's trips.

And to carry the EC Mini in style, Shanling designed a special shoulder carrying case. Making for easy transportation, protecting the device from any bumps or scratches, all while keeping easy access to all controls and outputs. The carrying case is sold separately.

More than just a CD Player

The EC Mini is much more than just a simple CD player, under its hood it actually matches Shanling's MTouch portable players. Built on the same Ingenic X1000 platform, running Shanling's dedicated system optimized for portable players, this time customized to a 2.33-inch touch screen sitting on the top.

This brings a whole new dimension of features, turning the EC Mini into a true multifunctional device, way above the limitations of other CD players.

Firstly, there's an option for local playback from MicroSD card and USB drives, with the touch screen allowing for full navigation through the music library right on the device. With the support of Hi-Res files up to 32bit /384 kHz & DSD256. And of course, Shanling's SyncLink feature allows for remote controlling directly from your phone or tablet.

Secondly, Shanling added Bluetooth, for both receiving and transmitting functions. So this might be the first time when you can play your CDs straight into your Bluetooth headphones on-the-go! Then, with the receiver function, the EC Mini will turn into a Hi-Fi quality Bluetooth DAC/AMP for wireless playback from your phone. And if you want to play music over a USB connection, the EC Mini can serve as a classic USB DAC.

But, the most unique feature on the EC Mini might be its USB output, allowing for a digital output directly to any standalone USB DAC, from small portable units to high-end USB DACs. This is such a rare feature on CD players, yet Shanling managed to fit it even into their cheaper transportable player.

Proven Hi-Fi Components

The audio section of the EC Mini is based on Shanling's M3 Ultra, packing a pair of their favorite ESS ES9219 DACs, supported by a pair of Ricore RT6863 headphone amplifiers, for a fully balanced audio circuit and 4.4mm output, alongside the standard 3.5mm jack. Putting out up to 248 mW @ 32 Ohms over balanced out.

The CD system is of comparable quality to Shanling's CD80 and CA80 players, with a Phillips CD drive and Sanyo HD860 laser for accurate CD and MQA-CD reading. And to prevent any interruptions on a bumpy ride, the EC Mini adds extra mechanical and electronic anti-vibration systems.
