SMSL SU-8 V2

DAC full balanced 2xES9038Q2M 768kHz DSD512 USB XMOS




The second version of the SU-8 from SMSL is a fully balanced DAC based on a combo of ES9038Q2M chips and a USB XMOS interface to offer an extremely transparent and respectful audio reproduction for your high definition audio files.

Its very well designed audio circuits and audiophile components allow it to work with an extremely low THD + N level (0.0003%) and an SNR of 116dB which are outstanding performances for its price range.

The device benefits from numerous options designed to optimize digital to analog conversion thanks to a wide range of filters and micro-adjustments.

Capable of decoding digital audio files up to 768kHz-32bit and the native DSD up to DSD512, this DAC will easily find its place in a compact and efficient high-fidelity audio installation.

It is controlled comfortably using its remote control (supplied with the DAC SMSL SU-8 V2).

Double ES9038Q2M chip


The SU 8 V2 is a high-precision DAC operating thanks to two 32-bit ES9038Q2M SABRE chips integrated in dual Mono mode : each of these chips dedicates 100% of its computing power to a single channel of the stereophonic signal for an exceptionally clear reproduction with well defined crosstalk.

This component is one of ESS flagship products and one of the best current hardware solutions for high-fidelity audio decoding, notably with HYPERSTREAM 32 BIT 768KHZ architecture as well as native DSD support. They are also equipped with advanced reconstruction filters and have excellent finesse in dithering.

ESS technology is also very popular in that it allows extremely precise and signal-friendly volume control.

These chips integrate a rudimentary DSP offering the possibility of configuring the active processing of second and third harmonics. This parameter is supported by the SU-8V2 in order to allow the user to adjust the rendering to the specifics of his speakers / amplifiers as much as to his personal preferences.

XMOS USB Interface


The USB-B input operates through an XMOS U208 USB interface with asynchronous design. This component no longer has to prove its worth in the world of high-fidelity music, supporting digital streams up to 32-bit 768kHz as well as the DSD512 (native).

This input is controlled by crystal clocks with ultra-low phase noise to effectively limit digital artifacts and noise.

Well designed power supply


The balanced DAC power stage integrates several pairs of low dropout regulators in a design favoring audio performance.

It has its own regulated linear power supply with high quality isolated toroidal transformer.

Its circuit also incorporates a whole series of overvoltage and overload protections to protect delicate electronic components in the event of a specific anomaly in your grid.

Included remote control


The SMSL SU 8 V2 DAC is delivered with its remote control. The latter requires two AAA batteries which are not supplied.

This remote control offers to control all the functions of the device: Power on / off, mute, volume control, input source selection, options relating to the DAC screen and parameters of filters and audio adjustment.

Note that a single remote control can control all DA-8 / SU-8 / DH-8 series devices from SMSL.

SMSL SU V2 DAC
Il y à maintenant une semaine que j'ai reçu ce DAC et j'en suis très satisfait il est connecté à un pré-ampli MC INTOSH C2300 à lampe avec un câble de modulation XLR AUDIO-GD acheté sur ce site le résultat est très bon le son est aéré, précis après quelques heures d'utilisation (rodage).
Pour la lecture des fichiers j'utilise un PC MAC avec Audirvana.
Le RQP de ce DAC est remarquable.
Merci à l'équipe d'Audiophonics pour la mise en route surtout pour l'utilisation de la télécommande.
