Description

SMSL iDEA

DAC OTG + Headphone AMPLIFIER

The achievements of the dynamic Chinese manufacturer SMSL are particularly attractive and often offer very good sound results. Following the huge success of their first-generation iDOL, SMSL took advantage of the opportunity to launch a few versions adapted to several needs. This time we have the last SMSL iDEA certified HI-RES AUDIO.

The SMSL iDEA plays miniaturization without neglecting the quality of sound reproduction, which is very high, up to 32Bit/384kHz, with DSD support thanks to the high-performance components.

This small device with a soft and well-structured sound, of a beautiful neutrality. Its output power is designed to make the most of in-ear headphones or headsets. It will be your ideal companion for a nomadic listening.

ULTRA COMPACT

The conception of the SMSL iDEA appears to be simple but also very durable. There's usually not much to say about these super compact devices, but the SMSL iDEA chassis is made of aluminum includes a female micro USB connector and 3.5mm headphone output. It also has two physical buttons, which is a plus on this type of peripherals, the volume buttons + and -.

Under the hood there is a headset amplifier, the DAC chip designed by the American firm ESS, the SABRE ES9018Q2C and the USB XMOS Xcore200 XU208 which accepts sampling rates up to 32Bit/768kHz and the DSD up to DSD512.

FOR OTG DEVICES

The SMSL iDEA is compatible with Android OTG devices and is also compatible with Apple products using a Camera kit. It works well with several third-party applications, such as the USB Audio Player Pro application.

Powered by the USB port of the source to which it is connected, it also works very well with streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer, Qobuz. Listening to online music services also benefits from the musical qualities of SMSL iDEA.

Please check the compatibility of the smartphone or Android tablet with external USB DACs, as this is not always compatible.

High-Fidelity and High Definition

The SMSL iDEA guarantees High Fidelity and High Definition up to 32Bit / 768kHz and DSD up to DSD512. It is plug & play (no driver required) on MAC OS and Linux. In the case of a PC running Windows, you will need to download and install the driver available in the donwload section.

In practice, using the SMSL iDEA is child's play: once plugged into your computer's USB port, the configuration requires only a few clicks in the sound settings menu. However, for a Bitperfect reading, we recommend using Foobar2000 (with Wasapi output module) and Audirvana on Mac OS. Thus, the operating system's software mixer is bypassed and does not alter the transmitted signal.

When connected to Windows, the SMSL iDEA volume control takes control of the system volume (it works the same way with Android), which is very convenient.


SMSL iDEA

XS for size, XL for its sound qualities...

This small DAC with its stunning headphone amplifier and amazing sound reproduction is a device with an exceptional price/performance ratio. SMSL iDEA can be considered one of the most attractive solutions for high fidelity mobile music listening.

While it is primarily intended to boost the audio output of any smartphone or tablet, it can also decode standard and high-resolution digital audio files played on a computer.

The SMSL iDEA certified Hi-RES AUDIO is a true jewel with sound performance that can satisfy the most demanding ears, all for a compact size and a small price.
