In exclusive partnership with top-tier modification house Parts ConneXion, Underwood HiFi is proud to offer the following carefully tested performance enhancement packages for Shanling amplifiers and CD/SACD players. The Shanling US 1-year factory warranty is included on all our mods.

The new Shanling PCD-3000A is a very nice compact CD player with headphone amplifier. It also has a nice headphone amp. We love the compact size as well as the fact that it offers remote volume control to run directly into an amp. Sonics are good for its $500 retail price.
The Shanling CD-3000 was a well built tube CD player in its stock form. It was a very good deal at its $1595 retail price. If made in the US by one of the "big boys", it would easily sell in the $3000+ price range.
The new Shanling CD-T1000SE replaces the original CD-T100 that introduced Shanling to the public. Its beautiful cosmetics are similar to the new CD-T1000SE that we have here. The new machine is an upgrade and offers current state-of-the-art parts over the older design. Sonics are considerably better.
