Please excuse my ignorance, but what's the difference between this and the SU-8(non S) and SU-9

Looks like close to everything if we are talking internals. But I am not quite sure about sound quality, however as ex-SU8 owner and now M400 owner I will assume that sound quality will be great for money. So: SU8 do have dual ES9038Q2M but SU8s do have dual ES9068Q which add native MQA unfold support (and absence of MQA actually force me to move to another SMSL DAC) SU8s do have way better XMOS chip ( USB interface and digital audio stream control) which allow to have MQA via USB. In terms of the SNR and other technical characteristic 8s looks way better to me and could be close to SU-9. Here is SU-8 https://drop.com/buy/smsl-su-8-dac/details#details SU-8s https://drop.com/buy/smsl-su-8s-dac/details#details SU-9 https://drop.com/buy/smsl-su-9-dac/details#details M400 https://drop.com/buy/smsl-m400-bluetooth-dac/details#details
