Support of MQA and MQA-CD streams

SMSL has also chosen to equip its D-6S with an MQA decoder, enabling it to receive very high-resolution MQA and MQA-CD streams for the purest, cleanest sound possible via its USB-C, optical and coaxial inputs.

Bluetooth 5.1

A Bluetooth receiver chip enables the D-6S to work with a remote source such as your smartphone. Bluetooth functionality supports SBC, AAC, aptX HD and LDAC formats.

Quality components for high performance

The D-6S's clock circuit considerably reduces jitter. In addition, numerous low-noise power supply components are integrated into this DAC. These design details enable it to achieve good measurement performance, with a THD+N of just 0.00006% (-123dB). The front panel features an integrated display and gold-plated connector contacts for improved signal transmission and resistance to corrosion and oxidation.

Test du SMSL D-6S par AudioScienceReview (Amir)

I pride myself in always finding something to complain about in a review but I have nothing for you here. Price is right. The look is right. And performance is top notch regardless of price. I always recommend balanced DACs and here is your chance to get one without any compromise. I am happy to recommend the SMSL D-6s DAC. "

Nice choice
After a SU6 dac that unfortunately broke irreparably at 15 months, I decided to proceed with the purchase of this dac since the various reviewers said good things.
Well it's excellent, more balanced, wide, airy and accurate, with excellent clarity for the money always, dynamic at full and very accurate. It looks and is superior in quality to the previous one, heavier with a better chip I think to the 9038.
It has been combined with a SMSL amplifier DA-9 which is powerful with good currents and 2 Polk R100 bookshelf speakers for desktop use (optical connect with pc).
I'm happy and haven't found a flaw yet.
Audiophonics 10/10 at all, order and shipping!!!

Great so far
That's my first DAC, but I can tell when the sound quality is nice.

Checked with coax/optical and Bluetooth (LDAC)
The volume via optical is a bit lower than coax.
I tested the usb input with my win11 laptop. I used the issued cable from the box, and the display went to "384" as I plugged it in. No drivers needed.
I set it to 24/96 and played a few flacs of the same quality. Sounded nice. System sounds, Youtube videos were ok.

It's early, but as far as I can taste, the sound is well balanced.
Treble is not sibilant, though my speakers feature titanium domes and can be fatiquing with low quality music.
Bass is there, too.
Sound is overall transparent, without strange colorations.
The remote control is very handy.
I use D-6s as a center of all my digital sources (Bluray, win11 PC), Sony MD Deck, Cellphone)
So the remote acts like a universal volume control of my humble system.
Let's hope D-6s proves reliable...

Service from Audiophonics was great so far. I chose the faster shipping option and the parcel came in 2 days from France to Greece.

Plaisir/Prix imbattable !
d'abord, merci à Audiophonics pour la qualité du service ( conseil, suivi commande, livraison rapide) .
Ensuite, qu'elle différence avec mon ancien DAC ! précision du message, plans sonores et espace qui prend de l'ampleur , voix incarnées ! ....je suis plus que satisfait ! bientôt un nouveau ampli casque ?
