A New Standard in Versatile, High-Fidelity CD Playback

The SMSL PL200 MQA-CD Player isn't just another CD player—it's a versatile audio hub designed for the modern audiophile. It seamlessly merges features like a built-in Bluetooth 5.1 receiver and a high-quality USB DAC into a single unit, setting a new bar for CD players. Equipped with the esteemed AKM AK4499EX D/A chip, DSD512 support, and LDAC capabilities, the PL200 is engineered to deliver an uncompromising CD experience that meets today's multifaceted listening needs. 

P.A.S.S. Precision Access Servo System

Two years of dedicated research have culminated in the P.A.S.S. Precision Access Servo System. This system boasts rapid response and precise reading capabilities. Coupled with self-developed vibration dampers, it demonstrates superior anti-vibration performance—meaning your CD playback will be as flawless as it gets.

CDs, Bluetooth, and USB DAC—All in One Unit

The PL200 is not confined to merely playing your CDs. With full MQA decoding and a built-in Bluetooth 5.1 receiver, you can stream high-fidelity audio straight from your devices. Plug it into your computer via USB, and you get a high-spec audio output that bypasses your device's internal sound card. In essence, the PL200 is a Swiss Army knife for your audio needs, offering multiple avenues to achieve the highest level of musical fidelity.

Direct RCA Connectivity

While some CD players require an external digital-to-analog converter (DAC) for RCA connections, the PL200 has got you covered with its built-in AKM AK4499EX D/A chip. This means you can directly connect the player to your audio setup via RCA cables without the need for an additional DAC. The internal DAC ensures that you're getting the best possible audio fidelity, with a measured distortion as low as 0.00006% (-123dB). 

A world of connections

The PL200 excels in versatility, offering a rich array of input and output choices to cater to your diverse audio requirements. Whether you're looking for the balance of an XLR line out or the high-res capabilities of USB inputs that support 32bit/768kHz, DSD512, and MQA full decoding, this unit has you covered. Add in optical and coaxial outputs, and the PL200 becomes the nerve center for all your audio endeavors, allowing seamless integration with multiple components of your sound system.

Piano keys button design

In a marriage of the modern and the classic, the PL200 features a unique piano key button design. But these aren't your average buttons—each one uses the tactile, audible blue clicky switches commonly found in mechanical keyboards. This adds a satisfying auditory and tactile feedback with each press, blending the finesse of a piano with the responsiveness of cutting-edge technology.

Crystal Clear and User-Friendly: The PL200's Tempered Glass and IPS Display

Navigating your audio experience takes on a new level of clarity and ease with the PL200's display. It comes equipped with a fully laminated tempered glass panel coupled with an IPS LCD. Not only does this make for an aesthetically pleasing viewing experience, but it also simplifies user interaction. The intuitive interface is designed for straightforward navigation, allowing you to effortlessly glide through settings, options, and playback functions.
