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 star of the SMSL-200 Ensemble is either a pair of Dan Clark Audio Æon 2 headphones* or a pair of QUAD ERA-1 Planar Magnetic Headphones. Both showstoppers, the Æon 2 and QUAD ERA-1 deliver spotlit performances with vast soundstage and micro-detail retrieval. 

Either is backed by the SMSL M200 DAC and SMSL SP200 headphone amp, a Bluetooth-receptive duo that delivers up to 32-bit music with total transparency. Finally, a Fanmusic C003 RCA cable brings everything together with pure-copper clarity. 

*Available in either closed- or open-back.
