SMSL continues to show signs of great maturity with the launch of another amplifier. Continuing on the same path as the SMSL Q5 Pro, this compact SMSL AD18 is the latest member of the Asian brand family. But do not be fooled by the size, this is a powerful, ergonomic and extremely versatile device.

If you are currently looking for an economical FDA without neglecting the technical qualities and at a very attractive price, this may be the device you are looking for.



The SMSL AD18 is part of the new wave of devices that is revolutionizing the world of Hi-Fi, especially for lovers of digital music reproduction like the MP3, FLAC, ALAC, etc... without forgetting the users of streaming services, such as, Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, Qobuz, etc... these devices are known as FDA amplifiers (acronym for: Full Digital Audio).



This SMSL AD18 benefits from an amplification by the pair TAS5508C and TAS5342 from TEXAS INSTRUMENT thereby adopting the DIGITAL PUREPATH ™ patent procedure registered by the Texan company.

With three digital inputs, two SPDIFs via TOSLINK and Mini-TOSLINK Coaxial and one via USB (Micro-USB - USB A cable provided) that will convert the digital input to I2S and then be amplified by TAS5508C and TAS5342. This simplified procedure of digital signal processing allows a great quality sound restitution that has the effect of making us forget the price of this very interesting device.

This SMSL AD18 also responds to the appeal of the analog signals by integrating an AUX input so that you can enjoy all your analog audio sources, showing once again the versatility of this equipment.

Bluetooth 4.2 NFC

Another of the great innovations presented by the brand in this SMSL AD18 is the fact they have implemented in this already complete device a Bluetooth 4.2 NFC module.

So, for those who prefer to send their music tracks wirelessly, can take advantage of this technology to do it with quality and with extreme ease from an iPad, iPhone, iPod, tablets and Android smartphones compatible with this technology. With a range, up to 10 meters without obstacles this is undoubtedly a welcome feature.


Bit-perfect reading...

The fact that it can be connected via USB allows you to use the SMSL AD18 as an external sound card for your computer regardless of the operating system, Windows, MAC OS or Linux. No configuration is necessary since the SMSL AD18 is automatically detected and installed.

In order to benefit from the best possible sound restitution, it is highly recommended to use a reading program capable of spoof the limitations of the operating system source reader. For example, for Windows we recommend the use of Foobar2000 with the optional Wasapi module, allowing a bit-perfect reading.

It may seem incredible, but this small screen can present all the information you need to get the most out of this FDA.
