In Reply to: RE: New CD Transport Shanling EC3 in the house posted by AbeCollins on January 04, 2024 at 12:04:56
It has two USB ports. One for connecting a USB Drive (Up to 2T) or USB Stick and another for Audio output. And it has an I2S connector, too. I believe it's using the PS Audio connection wiring. Plus AES-EBU, Coax S/PDIF and Optical S/PDIF, too.
Plus, you can connect via Bluetooth to output or DNLA and Apple AirPort WiFi via their own app. I haven't tried any of those yet.
There is no Ethernet input, so, to use it as a streamer you must use their App or Bluetooth.
But I bought it for CD playback only.

Look at the back panel photo.
The USB socket is an input one, not an output for connection to a DAC.
I see no I2S, although I'm used to this being in the form of HDM!
Their CD Player the EC3 doesn't have I2S. But this Transport does. I made a typo in my original thread title. This transport is the ET-3 and it does have an HDMI-Type I2S output. You'll see it below the two USB inputs on the rear panel photo below.
PS - I see the OP has just realised he's bought something other than the EC3!
