    This going to sound stupid but I can't seem to get my dang remote to work. Anyone has the same problem?

    Press the "C" button first then it'll work.

    That is a bit of a oddly that the smsl su-8 needs to be electronically unlock one time in order to use other functions. Even when I power down my unit for a few days it will power up with unlock shown on the display.

    Strange. I’ve yet to see that on mine.

    Well, press "C" for DAC and "B" for the companion amplifier to get the remote to work. Wonder what "A" is for.

    The DA-8 power amp.

    I am waiting for my SU-8. Joined the last drop in Massdrop.
    I am planning to pair it with Monoprice Liquid Platinum.
    Currently I am pairing LP with Mojo but I wanted something with remote to control the volume.

    I cancelled the MassDrop, got the NY deal, and it is arriving today. Looking forward to it. Will be for my speaker system.

    Hi, sorry for the newbie question.

    I am in the market for a DAC that has to output in order to connect both my Little Dot MKII and a simple DOUK Audio speaker amplifier for my passive bookshelf speakers. Both amps have unbalanced rca inputs.

    Is it possible to connect the balanced output of the SU-8 to the unbalanced input of the speaker amplifier?
  11. Holypal
    You can. All you need is a pair of XLR to RCA adaptors.

    @ColinMacLaren or just an RCA splitter on any SE (RCA) DAC output. Many amps now have a "Pass Through" source input allowing one to string many amps from one source (DAC,CD,Phono amp etc)

    is it possible to use it as fixed output??
  14. eeagle
    I leave my SU-8 set @max output and adjust volume at amp or via sw player, so yes.
    Many find the remote volume control convenient, so the SU-8 is quite versatile in that regard.

    just ordered one strictly for the balanced outputs and the pair of ess chips. expect at end of the month
