Ideal for Audiophiles

These Digital Audio Players are designed for discerning music lovers. If you are someone who cares about audio quality deeply, you'll want a pair of Digital Audio Players like these. You can expect these Digital Audio Players to present you with a refined listening experience. The audio quality exhibited by these Digital Audio Players is a beautiful mix of musicality, technical brilliance and high precision. These Digital Audio Players deliver a spacious and open soundstage that compares listening to music on actual speakers.

Pair with Laptop via USB

A majority of people use a laptop as the primary source device to listen to music or watch movies. Since the laptop is an essential part of the audio chain there are headphones and devices designed to work a laptop or computer system flawlessly. With the availability of USB connectivity, it becomes easier to pair various devices like an Amp, DAC or even headphones without worrying about drivers or any additional piece of software.

Volume Controls

If your Digital Audio Players have volume controls, you will be able to adjust the volume level with a simple touch of a button without having to reach for your source device. Your music keeps playing without being interrupted or accidentally paused during playback. Having volume controls on Digital Audio Players or at least in-line controls on the audio cable may seem unnecessary to some people, but they are, in fact, quite convenient.

PRO PERFORMANCE AND ADVANCED NETWORK MUSIC PLAYER WITH SOC(ARM)+CPLD ARCHITECTURE

The unique and high-performance SOC(ARM)+CPLD architecture is at the core of the SMSL SD-9 HiFi Network Music Player. The SOC takes care of seamless decoding while the CPLD keeps a check on the clock management of the audio system. Made by dual audio frequency clocks—22.5792MHz and 24.576MHz, the audio clock system of the SD-9 significantly eliminates clock jitter so as to aid accurate audio playback. Moreover, the low noise switching power supply of the SD-9 is highly efficient. This player comes with tempered glass on the top and it supports a wide range of audio formats including MQA, DSD, WAV, APE, FLAC, AIFF and MP3.

Headphone-Zone-SMSL-SD-9

FULL-FLEDGED MQA SUPPORT LEADING TO A REMARKABLY DETAILED STUDIO-QUALITY SOUND

Analogue to digital audio conversion causes blurring transient response that reduces audio clarity. MQA eliminates this distortion to create a true 3D sound field that makes all the difference. MQA uses 24/192 recording to remove those distortions at the beginning and the end of the transient response.

WITH MQA DECODING & MQA RENDERING FUNCTION FOR ALL-ROUND MQA DELIGHT

Post distortion removal, MQA adapts large-sized music files to adapt according to the playback device using a process called 'musical origami'. The MQA decoder upgrades sound way beyond the CD quality and supports Bluesound, Pioneer, Onkyo's player along with the ROON streaming service. The MQA renderer completes the setup turning SMSL SD-9 into a full-blown MQA enabled device allowing you to enjoy sound in its purest studio quality just like the artist intended.

Connectivity issues

Faced the following issues:
a) Keeps disconnecting from airplay every time a manual track change is initiated. To connect again, unit has to be switched Off and then On again.
b) Unable to connect on Hiby link controller as the SD9 does not show up as an available device.
c) Visibility on bluetooth is also sporadic (Visible sometimes, not visible at other times)

While sound quality is quite good, seems to be plagued with too many connectivity issues.
