CNC Milled Aluminum Case

The SMSL SU9 features precise CNC milled Aluminum Alloy shell. After outer oxidation and chamfering treatment, the product appearance is more delicate and smoother, meaning that SU9 is durable.

Flagship ES9038 & ES9311 Power Chipset

SU9 consists of various high-standard modules. Firstly, apart from the ES9038 flagship DAC, this DAC is coupled with an ES9311 power chip designed for ESS to optimize ES9038 performance to its max potential. Besides, digital inputs support DSD decoding, and DoP64 supports through coaxial and optic. Finally, the power source implements a shielded low noise conditioner promoting sound quality and power efficiency.

Excellent Qualcomm aptX

The SU9 features fancy Qualcomm aptX so that listeners can finally hear every detail of their music just as the artist intended, and get fully immersed in lag-free mobile gaming with ultra-low latency, feeling better connected to colleagues and loved ones through voice and video calls with true-to-life audio.

Game-changing UAT

The SMSL SU9 characterizes UAT (Ultra Audio Transmission), an audio coding technology self-developed by HiBy Music company with up to 192kHz sampling frequency or up to 1.2Mbps bit rate. There are three available settings: high 1.2Mbps/medium 900 kbps/low 600 kbps.

MQA Full Decoding

When the analog sound converts to a digital signal, the sound will become blurred over time. As a result, we cannot tell where a single sound comes from. Compared to recorded music, live performance is remarkable! It is worth mentioning that the DP5 can eliminate this distortion and create an actual 3D sound field, which is different from any sound you have ever heard.
