So this is a 200 without THX. SMSL likes to cut and paste so not much of a surprise

Still no answer if 110V or 240V. The pictures are so bad you cannot read the voltage sticker on the amp. Really? Do I want to end up with an amp where I have to get a transformer first?
HPWBruetschHello @HPWBruetsch Sorry for the late reply: Please see the image below. The build in power supply can handle 110 and 240V.

k-baI'm glad you mentioned it tbh because I've honestly never noticed. I guess it's all just meaningless marketing to me without additional measurements to supplement. I don't say this to excuse it, but I think we both know there's wayy worse in the audiophile world. It's always hard to take any manufacturer at their word.

An internal AC power supply? For purest sound, I highly recommend an external DC power supply.

This is a great price for this particular amp. I had been looking at amps to use in my office at work and this was on my short list, but I got a Monoprice 887 for $160 a few weeks ago instead. Had this offer come up at the time I'd probably have jumped on it. Regardless, $130 is stellar and if you're in the market for a quality solid state amp, this will serve you very well.

This is the matching headphone amp for the SU-8s DAC that sold like hotcakes on here a few months ago. Like the SU-8s, the Drop price on this is fantastic! Reviews for this amp seem really good, and I've been very happy with the SU-8s, so it should be a good match. I definitely like the built in power supply - just like the SU-8s. Deals like these remind me of the old Massdrop days :) Here are some useful links: Headfonics review: https://headfonics.com/smsl-sh-8s-review/ Passion for Sound review: https://youtu.be/yuECL4rrkXY ASR measurements and review: https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/smsl-sh-8s-review-headphone-amplifier.22569/

gtb75I agree with your sentiment, the SU-8s brought me back here after a long hiatus from Massdrop. I'd be all over this if I hadn't already bought a SH-9 to pair with the SU-8s!
