SMSL SU-9

DAC ES9038Pro USB XMOS Bluetooth 5.0 MQA 32bit 768kHz DSD512

SMSL SU-9 DAC ES9038Pro USB XMOS Bluetooth 5.0 32bit 768kHz DSD512

Successor of the SU-8, the SMSL SU-9 takes up the excellent base of the SU-8 while bringing significant improvements to improve its sound performance. This new version of the DAC also offers support for MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) files, guaranteeing faithful reproduction, as close as possible to studio recording. On the conversion chip side is the excellent and proven DAC ESS ES9038Pro, which supports high-resolution files up to 32bit 768kHz PCM and up to DSD512.

The ergonomics of the device has also been reviewed. The front panel now features a rotary knob that allows you to navigate through the menus, adjust the volume level, select a source or turn the device on and off. The color screen has been greatly enlarged for improved navigation and readability.

The connections remain unchanged and therefore as complete as ever. We find Toslink Optics, Coaxial and USB (XMOS) in input and unbalanced RCA as well as balanced XLR in output. However, a novelty appears here as well, with the support of Bluetooth 5.0 transmission. Particularly convenient, it is possible to broadcast your music remotely, directly from a smartphone.

The SU-9's careful and well thought-out internal design allows it to unveil a precise, rich and dynamic sound reproduction.

MQA Support

SMSL SU-9 DAC ES9038Pro USB XMOS Bluetooth 5.0 32bit 768kHz DSD512

Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) files offer the same quality as when the song is recorded in the studio, resulting in much lower distortion, a wider sound stage, and richer, more accurate playback.

The MQA uses a treatment called "musical origami". This makes this high-resolution file easy to manage in order to make it compatible with all audio playback services and devices. This process consists of 3 steps.

Bluetooth UAT Reception

The SMSL SU-9 allows a Bluetooth reception, particularly practical to broadcast music from your phone. It also supports all available transmission codecs, including high-resolution protocols such as LDAC, aptX, aptX-HD, XBC and AAC. It is also compatible with the UAT (Ultra Audio Transmission) format, allowing high quality reception at 24bit 192kHz.

SMSL SU-9 Review by Audio Science Review

Looks like we started a trend to achieve perfection in desktop DACs and the SMSL SU-9 is yet another example of that. We have another great "instrument grade" DAC on our hands providing absolute transparency to the source beyond any threshold of human hearing. "

Tres bon DAC
Je l'utilise essantellement entre un lecteur preampli ,un CD servant de transport et un ampli MPA-S250NC Audiophonic.
Le son est légèrement analogique et tout en finesse.
Je pense que le son va encore s'améliorer dans quelques jours.
Merci à David pour ses conseils.
Envoi rapide, mais ceci devient normal chez Audiophonics et très apprécié.

Son excellent... en USB
Je l'utilise principalement avec Tidal sur mon iphone, l'Amplificateur Casque Symétrique SH-9 de la même marque et un casque Sennheiser HD660S. Mais aussi sur ma chaine hifi (ampli classe D & enceintes Dynaudio).
Le son est remarquable. Comparaison avec un convertisseur haut de gamme à tube mais plus vieux : Son plus précis, sur tout le spectre mais parfois un peu froid pour le SU-9.
Cependant après quelque semaines d'utilisation le bluetooth ne fonctionne plus. Un mal pour un bien car j'ai commandé un "meloaudio Adaptateur de caméra USB avec Port de Charge" sur Amaz** et depuis je l'utilise en connectant directement l'iphone à l'USB. Conséquence quand j'utilise des fichiers "master" sur Tidal le logo "master" s'affiche sur le SU-9 et le son est bien superieur me semble t'il (je ne peux pas comparer puisque le bluetooth ne fonctionne plus).
Je viens d'envoyer un email au SAV. Donc 4 étoiles pour ce problème de bluetooth bien que sur le plan sonore les 5 étoiles me semblent être méritées.

Très très bon DAC !
Je sortais d’un SMSL Sanskrit 10th que je trouvais déjà très bon. Là, on gagne tout : définition, équilibre tonal, scène sonore… Beaucoup plus droit que le Sanskrit (qui garde beaucoup de charme et reste un rapport Q/P imbattable).
Les filtres jouent de manière très légère sur le son. C’est parfois honnêtement inaudible.
Le Bluetooth est excellent ! Dommage que l’association ne puisse se faire que lorsque l’entrée Bluetooth est sélectionnée. Et puis toujours cette télécommande très cheap et un peu capricieuse..,
Aucun regret en tout cas !

Monster.
Dac is doing its job BUT the MQA is where this shines. You can really hear why MQA isnt just a gimmick. The pre echo is eliminated and the soundstage is HUGE. Best bang for the buck.

Excellent dac utilisé en pré ampli
Après une longue étude sur le site Audiophonics, j'ai choisi ce dac pour son rapport qualité prix. Equipé d'un des dac high end du moment ES9038Pro, permettant le réglage du volume en sortie et équipé de 4 entrées numériques (USB, optique, Bluetooth et coax), il allait devenir le centre de mon installation.
Associé à un amplificateur de puissance Audiophonics NCore, j'ai réveillé mes enceintes, détails, neutralité et basses très présentes sans excès. Un son très détaillé surtout à bas volume avec une scène sonore que je trouve beaucoup plus large qu'avec mon smsl sa300. La télécommande est pratique : volume, sélection entrée et touche Bluetooth en accès direct.
