For me, SMSL M8 beats all my previous generation DACs or CD players when it plays CD wave files through DSD 128 upsampling. A better power supply does help. Many people say upsampling to DSD 256 or 512 can make CDs sound even better; hence, I just jumped into this drop to try it out even though I have two M8s in hand for now.
I really do not like they changed the power supply from 9V to 5V which means the power supply I made for my current M8 will not work for M8A. I have to find time to make new one ...
I bought an iFi iPower 9V on Amazon for my M8 about a month ago and I love it. Without going into audiophile platitudes, it blows away the stock PS. Only $49 and they make a 5V.
Thanks for the suggestion, that power supply looks interesting.
