Shanling EC Mini Portable CD Music Player
Now it’s time for our most unique CD player yet, our first transportable Multi-functional CD Player powered by batteries., the Shanling EC Mini.
Fully powered by a pair of 18650 batteries, EC Mini is our first transportable CD Player.
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 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.
And to carry EC Mini in style, we 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. Carrying case sold separately.
More than just a CD Player
EC Mini is much more than just a simple CD player, under its hood it actually matches our MTouch portable players. Built on the same Ingenic X1000 platform, running our 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 EC Mini into a true multi-functional device, way above the limitations of other CD players.
Firstly, we get 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. And our SyncLink feature allows even for remote controlling directly from your phone or tablet.
Secondly, we 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, 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 USB connection, 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 we managed to fit it even into our cheaper transportable player.
