I Wish It Had BT
This would’ve been my endgame dac for quite some time if it had BT capabilities. It’s a perfect Dac otherwise and I’m glad I bought it. However, I do know that there are other BT dacs and dac-amps out there now so I now have the Topping DX7 Pro DacAmp. I’d definitely buy this again if I had a ise case for it though.

This has been an excellent dac
I am honestly not sure where else you could spend the same amount of money and get the same quality and options. Not only does it have a great linear dac option but if you have a set of boring headphones it has a bunch of sound profiles like tube warm and other signature sounds to make an old set of headphones sound new again

It’s ok
The display screen size is small, hard to read more than 5 ft away, but works just fine.

I just got this set up with my new headphone amp (THX+drop AAAone) and it is great.
I especially like the sound settings. I'm going with rich3 for now

Fantastic Solid State at the right price
The SMSL SU-8 is a clean, powerful, feature packed solid state DAC at a perfect price. Solid build quality makes the SU-8 reliable and worry free. The design is simple and subtle and can fit with most desk themes. The included remote functionality provides ease of use and accessibility. The DAC is clean and crystal clear, with all the output options you could ask for (RCA, USB, Optical, Coaxial). Few DACs offer balanced output in this price range and few DACs can offer it with such streamlined solution in general. DACs are not always the most exciting part of anyone's audio setup, but if you want all the bells and whistles without breaking the bank you really can't go wrong with the SU-8.

Great service from Drop
My package got stuck in China when exporting and was returned to the warehouse according to tracking. Drop solved the refund in notime. Will buy again!

Great affordable DAC
This is a great DAC with multiple inputs for connecting multiple digital sources to a receiver. I have an old school tube amplifier with no digital inputs. This DAC provides multiple ways for me to connect digital signals to my analog receiver. In addition, it does an amazing job of converting the digital signals to analog. Much better than any onboard DAC chip from a phone or computer.
