Introducing ET3

Dedicated Digital CD Transport

With ET3 we continue to build our line of compact top-loading CD players. While the previous Shanling EC3 was designed to be a sort of multifunctional CD player for a wide range of users, ET3 is a much more focused machine, designed for one clear use – Top-Quality Digital Transport for High-End DACs.

Shanling ET3 offers a range of standard digital outputs, but we also added more advanced I2S output and even USB output. Allowing for the transport of super High-Res files, above the limits of standard coaxial or optical outputs. ET3 can read these High-Res files from connected USB drives or it can be used alongside your local wireless network and DLNA streaming.
