I can't really say that the M8 sounds better than my Sanskrit 6th anniversary edition. In fact, I think the Sanskrit sounds better. Both are new so waiting for some "break in" period to see.
i will love to have some news from you, after the burn-in period, i want to buy a smsl as dac but still arguing with myself which one... Sanskrit 6th or Pro B, M8 or M8A or M6 .... it's a very hard choice.
burn in period... for 1s and 0s conversions.
(SMSL M8 owner here, older model)
DAC as for Digital to ANALOG Converter.
What is the output of any DAC......? 0s and 1s..? :)
My M8A after 24h of constant audio streaming got softer, highs are better controlled. And no, it is not my brain adjusting as Im using my Gustard X20Pro as a stable reference, listening to the same song every 10 or so hours just selecting different input in my Sr-009 setup.
On the other hand I can fully understand that one cannot hear burn-in differences as they are sometimes small and one needs quite revealing and stable rig to be able to hear them.
Just my 5 cents here.
BTW: my M8A gives me now about 85% of Gustard X20Pro (double 9028, XLRs with fully balanced design) SQ which means CRAZY value for the money.
