SMSL’s SH-8 brings high-resolution audio to a high-end form factor, and the SH-8s takes much of what makes its bigger brother exceptions and slims it down. With two channels delivering 6 watts of power, this palm-sized amplifier delivers a solid amount of headroom for your headphone or desktop operation. Plus, the 136-decibel signal-to-noise ratio and harmonic distortion as low as 0.00006-percent mean that your audio will come through crystal clear with tremendous accuracy. Thanks to SMSL’s precise linear feedback circuit and one-touch gain switch with 17.5 decibels of power adjustment, you can also be sure that the SH-8s is delivering the energy you want, when you want it. It all comes in a supremely slim package measuring just 1.6 inches tall, so the little “s” really does stand for more than just sound quality.

beginner here. Will this work with the output from my pc?
newbie here - i have the SMSL SU-8S as well - am I supposed to connect amp to the DAC via XLR cable? If so, does that mean I'll need to unplug/replug every time I'd like to use my studio monitors connected to the DAC?
The SU-8S has an XLR and RCA output - wondering I should just use the RCA instead for this amp.
