S.M.S.L SH-8s Powerful Balanced Headphone Amplifier Released

S.M.S.L SH-8s Powerful Balanced Headphone Amplifier Released

Along with the recently announced S.M.S.L SU-8s Balanced MQA DAC, S.M.S.L has also announced a powerful balanced headphone amplifier the all-new S.M.S.L SH-8s. It is a high-resolution headphone amplifier capable of producing 6W of tremendously powerful output. It features a specially designed Precision Linear Feedback Circuit that helps the SH-8s maintain ultra-low levels of distortion at such high output levels. SH-8s follows the traditional classical look of S.M.S.L headphone amplifiers featuring retro-style toggle switches for on/off, input, and gain functions.

Precision Linear Feedback Circuit:-

S.M.S.L has designed a Precision Linear Feedback Circuit using high-quality audio capacitors and resistors for the SH-8s. This circuit helps the SH-8s to achieve ultra-low distortion ratings while maintaining high-output power ratings.

SMSL SH8s-2

Tremendously Powerful:-

S.M.S.L SH-8s is a tremendously powerful headphone amplifier. It outputs up to 6Wx2 of power at 16 ohms of load, at 32 ohms it outputs up to 3W of power. Pair your demanding headphones with the SH-8s and hear them shine with a clean powerful output.

Two-Level Gain Mode:-

SH8s features two-level gain modes to pair sensitive as well as demanding headphones. At low-gain mode, the gain level is at 0dB which gets thrust to +17.5dB at high-gain mode.

SMSL SH8s-3

Classic Retro Look With CNC Machined Aluminum Alloy Chassis:-

S.M.S.L SH-8s features a classic retro look with retro toggle switches on the front. The outer shell here is made using a high-precision CNC machining process, anodizing, polishing high-quality aluminum alloy for a smooth, textured finish.

Pair With Balanced DAC For A Fully Balanced Headphone Chain:-

S.M.S.L SH-8s is made keeping in mind as a companion to SU-8s fully balanced DAC. But you can pair it with any balanced DAC and create a fully Balanced audio chain for your hi-fidelity headphones.
