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.


DAC Chip
You may not even realise it, but most of us use a digital-to-analogue converter (commonly known as a DAC) daily. Built into your computers, tablets and smartphones, a DAC is fundamental to unlocking the convenience of digital music. Any device that acts as a digital sound source will need a DAC to convert digital audio to analog. A DAC converts the digital information stored in “0s and 1s” into an analog signal that's passed to speakers or headphones and ultimately our ear. In short, DACs play a large part in making digital music hearable. 

While this technical process is undoubtedly impressive, the DAC embedded into your smartphones or laptops is nowhere good enough to listen to your favourite music recordings in high quality. So, if you want to listen to music in high quality, an external DAC is essential to allow headphones or speakers to perform at their potential. An external DAC, first and foremost, will improve audio quality dramatically.

Volume Controls

If your DAC & Amps include volume controls or volume rockers, you can easily change the volume with a button press or volume knob turn.


DAC & Amps that have volume controls make its operation incredibly simple; turn up the volume on your smartphone or your source devices and then change the volume on DAC & Amps to the desired level.


This design feature allows you to have complete control over the desired volume according to your listening preferences.

FEATURES ESS SABRE DAC CHIP FUSED WITH ULTRA-LOW NOISE REGULATOR THAT DELIVERS DETAILED AND PRECISE SONIC PERFORMANCE

The most important aspect of a DAC is the DAC chips that they host and the power regulators to support those DAC chips. With this design consideration in mind, a team of engineers at S.M.S.L have structured the architecture of S.M.S.L SU-9n to accommodate high-performance power supply and ESS Sabre DAC chips. The S.M.S.L SU-9n features an industry-standard ES9038PRO Sabre DAC chip fused with an ES9311 ultra-low noise regulator that delivers detailed and precise audio conversion. The industry's highest-performance, ultra-low noise regulator, the ES9311, is designed to supply necessary reference voltages for ESS' 32-Bit SABRE DACs. The ES9311 ultra-low noise regulator (power supply) ensures low noise of 1Vrms, to push ES9038PRO to perform without generating distortion signals. The ES9038PRO is propelled to its utmost by the ES9311 ultra-low noise regulator (power supply), resulting in jitter-free audio reproduction. The S.M.S.L Su-9n performs incredibly well with this architecture and delivers exceptional performance when it comes to tonal balance, allowing all the frequencies across the frequency spectrum to shine through. The innovative design of the S.M.S.L SU-9n makes it possible for your music to be as natural as possible. It has a good amount of presentation with great details, and subtle nuances in your recordings shine through with the S.M.S.L SU-9n.

FREEDOM FROM NOISE AND DISTORTION WITH ULTRA-LOW PHASE NOISE AND OPTIMISED CLOCK PROCESSING TO ACHIEVE MINIMAL CLOCK JITTER

The term "clocking" in audio electronics refers to the mechanisms used to maintain sync with the primary audio clock and precise timing of several digital circuits, such as power supplies, high-speed signal processing, and modulation. All digital components must have the clock source: an internal reference system that allows that component to understand when it's time to do something with the audio samples it receives at its input. For instance, a DAC's primary function is to transform digital audio signals into analogue signals—voltages that power your speakers or headphones. It is important to time this procedure correctly to guarantee that the audio you hear accurately captures the musical occurrence. If the DAC doesn't convert audio samples at precisely the appropriate time, you hear a musical note that has been an artificially distorted version of the original studio recording. To eliminate this, the engineers at S.M.S.L included a CK-02 clock processing unit in S.M.S.L SU-9n's circuitry. It has a built-in shielded, low-noise power processing, improved power efficiency, low power consumption, and a THD+N of 0.00006%. This design architecture ensures the audio is transmitted free of distortion and jitter. The S.M.S.L SU-9n has a built-in shielded, low-noise power supply processing that improves power efficiency and lowers power consumption. Specially designed discrete component linear regulated power supply and multiple low noise regulated power supplies provide low noise power for analogue circuits.
