SMSL SD-022+ affordable DAC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

There's a few SMSL products on eBay/Amazon and the well priced SD-022 caught my eye, looks to use the popular TE7022L controller used in the HiFimeDIY DAC.

 

 

Anyone have any more information on this? Looks similar to the FiiO E10 in size, has options for either RCA out or coax/optical, and is a cheap $50. I've grabbed one to test against the ODAC and a couple others.

Google is your friend.

e.g. Found this page from many available.

 

Wow, talk about money to burn, buying something withouth even knowing whats inside. Shame you didn't get a weiliang DAC9 (little pricey if you don't speak chinese) and tell us all about if this is the one of the best dacs money can buy for extra cheap. When I get some spare cash hopefully I will.

Looks interesting, I don't know the technical aspects of what to look for in a DAC but it looks apt for the money.

I've had it a couple of days now and it's actually quite capable, I've compared to the ODAC, Bifrost and E10 so far. It has a louder background than the ODAC or E10 which have zero noise even at high gain, but as black as you'd need it for practical purposes. The SMSL SD-022+ has zero problems aswell as the ODAC, although the E10, Bifrost and HRT Streamer II all have a few quirks, so for the price I find that a bonus.


I don't see any major or even minor changes in sound between any of these DACs really, I do really like the ODAC though.

This bought one of these some time ago.  The line output levels were abit low for my liking.
