Shanling has long flexed its muscles in the portable audio player scene, and M6, the latest digital audio player offering takes its place at the top of Shanling’s Hi-Res audio player line-up.

M6 is the first Shanling audio player to run Android OS and is armed with Hi-Res Audio and Hi-Res Wireless Audio certification taking your audio to the next level.

With the fully customised Android system, Shanling M6 audio player avoids any sound quality problems caused by its built-in sample rate conversion. With M6, all sounds from any app are output without any conversion, all the way up to 768kHz.

The powerful design of the Shanling M6 includes an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 CPU, combined with 4G RAM and 32G ROM, to assure swift and lag-free system performance. To make sure there is enough space for your portable music the M6 supports microSD cards up to 2TB.

Premium Components
M6 is armed with two AKM AK4495SEQ DACs combined with two Japanese KDS low-phase noise active crystal oscillators and special FPGA coding technology independently developed by Shanling. Each additional component was selected very carefully to achieve maximum performance of these outstanding and unique DACs.


Advanced Amplifier
With two TI OPA1612 acting as low-pass filters and two ADI AD8397 amplifiers, M6 provides extremely clean and balanced output with lots of power and very quiet background. M6 also uses an additional ADI 8397 amplifier, enabling use of both DAC chips even in single-ended mode.


Two-Way Bluetooth
Easily connect M6 to any Bluetooth device and enjoy premium sound quality thanks to support of advanced Bluetooth codecs. You can also turn M6 into a Hi-Fi Bluetooth amplifier when paired with any Bluetooth enabled device.


Hi-Res Audio
M6 earned the ‘Hi-Res Audio’ and ‘Hi-Res Wireless Audio’ certifications from Japan Audio Society. This means the sound produced by the M6 is a near-perfect representation of the original recording.

Why buy from us?

Rapallo is an independently owned New Zealand company and with more than 15 years experience, we offer you both technical expertise and superior service.

Rapallo is fully authorized to sell products by all of the manufacturers listed on our website and in our store. In most cases we are more than a reseller, we are a direct dealer who also receives training and where possible we personally test products we sell.

Authorized dealers like us offer peace of mind. Rapallo

  • meets manufacturer’s standards, from sales to service, in order to receive authorized status.
  • often receives training directly from manufacturer representatives and shares that expertise with you.
  • provides  support for all the products they sell.
  • ensures that manufacturer warranties will be honoured.
  • buys directly from big brand manufacturers and guarantee you buy NZ new, (no grey imports or parallel imports).

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

Concerned About Fraud?

The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
