Product Launch: SMSL VMV A1 and DA9!

SMSL’s 9-series DAC and AMP combo have been some of their most popular product releases, resonating with buyers for their combination of clean audio and sleek, modern design. We recently reviewed their SU-9 DAC and SH-9 AMP and came away very impressed by the well-rounded package on offer.

The company is now addressing other markets, introducing the VMV A1 class-A amplifier. With a whopping 2x15W (4ohm) of output power, the A1 is suitable for both headphones and bookshelf speakers. All of this is delivered in a stylish aluminium shell reminiscent of their source devices with high-res colour display showcased front and centre.

SMSL are also updating their Bluetooth amplifier in the form of the DA9 that offers an upgrade across the board from the DA8 before it. Built around BT5.0, the DA9 also supports RCA and XLR and offers 150W of output power into a 2ohm load. Despite this, it retains a stunning 111dB SNR. 8 eQ modes, a subwoofer preamp output and colour display complete a versatile high-spec package.

The VMV A1 and DA9 are available on Apos Audio (VMV A1/DA9) for $659.99 USD and $249.99 USD respectively at the time of writing.
