Now At Apos Audio: SMSL VMV D3 R2R DAC

SMSL continues to roll out its high-end VMV desktop lineup with the VMV D3 R2R DAC. Unlike most modern-day DACs, which use delta sigma chips to handle D/A conversion, the D3 uses four discontinued Texas Instruments R2R chips in a two-chip-per-channel fully-balanced design.

Beneath the hood of the D3 is a treasure trove of high-end audio circuitry that we think you’ll love. A 16-core XMOS processor ensures bit-perfect performance, while a battalion of Texas Instruments op amps and an isolated power supply keep noise and distortion in check. To top it off, a color LCD display screen and a high-end all-aluminum remote keep things looking swanky.
