SMSL offers a second modernized version of the M8A built around a chip DAC ES9038EQM and the second generation of XMOS XCore 200 X208. Its design strictly adheres to current audio quality requirements, while facilitating easy installation with a compact sleek design and a very convenient connectivity panel.

DAC ES9038EQM

Implantation of ES9038EQM DACchip significantly develops the capabilities of M8A since the previous version. The unit now accesses  Hyperstream II technology, which is usually dedicated to professional equipment.

This chip allows a DAC - if designed properly - to provide its user with a conversion of a remarkable smoothness while extending its capabilities to extreme sampling rates such as DSD512 and PCM 768kHz.

XMOS XCore U200 USB 2nd Generation

XMOS Xcore U200 v2

The USB interface XMOS Xcore U200 2nd gen, greatly contributes to the excellent specifications of the device. Especially with the support of the native DSD now complementing DOP transfer.

Every component involved in the process of analog conversion naturally benefits from a circuit specifically designed to enhance audio performance. Thus, it features a  ultra-low jitter clock  with a  low phase noise cristal. There are also low voltage drop (LDO) regulator chosen for their extremely low noise level.

The output stage uses an operational amplifier OPA1612 that ensures a clean and intelligible signal for the other elements of the chain, whether it be a pre-amplifier and furthermore or a simple active speaker.

Intuitive interface with integrated DSP presets

DAC with DSP compact SMSL

With its OLED screen and two only buttons, the interface of M8A is a model of simplicity. A button lets you navigate between the different options while the other allows the user to validate the choice.

The M8A offers plethora of options directly related to decoding techniques in order to refine your listening experience depending on the specificities of your sound system. Thus we find 10 DSP-type presets usually found among the most effective audio profiles. These add to traditional filters offered by high quality conversion chip such as the 9038EQM.

Simple to connect and easy to use

Connectors and Accessories M8A SMSL

Its USB inputs (high resolution XMOS), coaxial and optical allow it to gather all common digital audio sources (TV, computer, smartphone OTG, network player etc ...) on a single audio system.

The M8A comes with a range of accessories that will make most of its features immediately available. The package features a USB A / USB-B cable (computer) and a Micro-USB  / USB-C cable (Smartphone, tablets and OTG devices).

The dedicated power supply (Switching) is already provided, in addition to a USB-A adapter / Jack 5.5 / 2.5mm. These accessories are useful for standalone use or when the specifications of the audio source (especially laptops) are not enough to properly feed the DAC through USB-B alone.

A compact device

Dimensions M8A SMSL

The M8A V2 form-factor remains  extremely optimized, measuring only 90 x 122 mm to 22 mm high and 390 grams. With these very advantageous dimensions, intuitive interface and basic connectivity, the M8A V2 will easily find its place in any audio setup.

Un bon petit DAC
Qu'il est petit! Il ne faut pas compter sur lui pour masquer les câbles qui se promènent derrière. Prévoyez plutôt un truc un peu lourd a placer dessus pour éviter que le poids de la connectique ne fasse lever le nez.

Pour le tarif, ce DAC est recommandable. Beaucoup d'énergie sur toute la bande, et peut être un tout petit peu trop dans le haut, mais rien d'affreux pour du ESS. C'est étonnement bon. Il y a beaucoup de filtres disponibles mais chez moi le FAST MINIMUM sort tellement du lot que je me demande pourquoi les autres sont proposés.
Par contre, on ne gagne pas sur tous les tableaux, même avec une alimentation linéaire, la scène manque de profondeur. Cela serait surement moins ressenti sur un appareil moins précis par ailleurs, mais ici la grande netteté et le placement latéral hyper précis laissent tout le loisir de constater avec évidence ce manque d'aération et de profondeur.
Je nuance ma critique en mentionnant que mon DAC précédent (Audiolab M-DAC)qui était particulièrement performant sur cet aspect de profondeur coutait entre 800 et 900€ et que sur certains points ils était moins bon que ce petit smsl.
