Shanling EM7

Hip hybrid – Shanling's new EM7 [€2'099] in silver or black is that if you've got a very particular niche need. It's a compact music server with tilt Retina touch display, very powerful headphone amp (7wpc into 32Ω XLR), preamp with RCA/XLR outputs and SD card transport via coax, Toslink and USB out. RJ45 makes it network compatible as does a closed Android OS. Why you might want one and what makes its feature set so rare I cover in this feature.
