    How would this amp compare to something like the Matrix m-stage hpa-3b? (Both in same price range)

    Now we're talking. Looks like it's not balanced, but I'm sure it'll be much cheaper than the Monoprice.
    Would go great with the SMSL SU-8

    SDAC-B is a fine little DAC.

    SMSL has also been teasing a SL500 since June.


    Not sure which one will come first, but it looks like the SP200 is actually a real product now.

    These pics of it were posted on 9-9-2019.


    I wonder if it will actually use the same THX AAA 888 modules that the $3000 Benchmark HPA4 uses or if it will use a cheaper implementation like the Drop and Monoprice amps use.

    Things are definitely getting interesting! :money_mouth:

    Guess we have to wait for ASR measurement to see if its any good... I am assuming it will be great. Crossing my fingers for a $399 price tag. Looks cheap but decent

    Wow. The headphone amp game in this price bracket is swelling up.

    Their page shows an ETA of 11/23/19, which should be true as long as the date doesn't slip.

    I'm embarrassed, don't know how I missed that.

    Don't worry, it happens to everyone.

    No 5 year warranty though.

    Does anyone know if I can use this in Europe with a normal plug adapter, or if I would need a voltage stepper (like the previous Monolith 788)?
    Website says: Power supply: 24 VDC inline brick, universal input 100–240 VAC if that helps.

    inline brick, universal input 100–240 VAC spec means it should be fine with a plug adapter, no need for a transformer.
