The Radically Simple (Radically Affordable) SMSL SH-8s

The SH-8s is the radically simple new headphone amp from SMSL. Its feature set is slim, its user interface simple. Boasting nothing more than a few toggles and a volume knob, it shines most brightly where the light doesn’t: inside its chassis. Its internal components achieve massive output and ultra-pure noiselessness for a less-is-more experience. There are no bells and whistles, and certainly no snake oil. This is amplification, pure and simple.
