Shanling ET3 Dedicated Digital CD Transport

With ET3 Shanling continue to build their line of compact top-loading CD streaming devices.

Update of previous review

Reached out to Musicteck regarding connectivity issues with the shanling et3. Got a quick reply and support that helped to resolve my issues. Satisfied and very impressed with the overall design and performance of the et3 transport. Updating to 5 stars from 4.

Great product and super value for money

Much better sound tan Audiolab 6000. Don’t use the WiFi and other features - just playing CDs but I do use the i2 s out to my Denafrips Pontus DAC - very pleasing . Track display could be a bit larger. Highly recommended overall!

Excellent product and value

Handily beat my Audiolab 6000. Love the i2s output. Solid bass, instrument separation
Also fast delivery from Musicteck. Highly recommended!

Solid cd transport with some connectivity issues

Impressed with the basic functionality of the et3 cd transport. my cd's never sounded better Also, appreciate the option of usb output. Currently connected to my Q Acoustics M20 powered speakers via usb. Very nice. Remote works very well. Only problem is the inability to connect to WiFi. Have been working with Musicteck on this. I feel bad to have to deduct one start on the rating because of this issue. Hopefully it can be resolved.


The ET3 is a great product
