IMPORTANT NOTE

Due to the unfortunate fire at the AKM manufacturing facility in Japan, we have a very limited supply of this item. We urge anyone interested in this item to buy it while supplies last. Despite our very best efforts to get these products to customers as soon as possible, the impact of the fire on AKM’s operations may cause shipping delays. The AKM supply volatility will not improve until the end of April 2021.

Apos Ensembles are equipment bundles that have been specially curated by our team of audio professionals. Just as an ensemble refers to a group of musicians playing together, each of our ensembles is a coordinated group of equipment that we’ve brought together to form a superior listening experience. 


Meet the SMSL-200 Ensemble

The stars of the SMSL-200 Ensemble are the SMSL M200 DAC and the SMSL SP200 headphone amp, a Bluetooth-receptive duo that delivers up to 32-bit music with total transparency. A Fanmusic C003 RCA cable brings them together with pure-copper clarity. 


Accompanying them is one of seven pairs of headphones. Although any of these headphones will prove an excellent complement to the ensemble, they represent different price points and sound signatures, so we invite you to explore their product pages for more information.
