Request A Price Match

With a total of ten ins and outs, plus Bluetooth and dual-band WiFi support, the SMSL DP5 is an all-in-one digital-analog converter (DAC) amp that can handle virtually any home theater scenario. 


Beneath the SMSL DP5’s handsome hood lies a ES9038PRO SABRE DAC, the vanguard of decoder technology, touting the industry’s highest dynamic range (DNR) of 132db in a 32-bit, 8-channel DAC. 

More Ins and Outs Than Grand Central Station

The SMSL boasts a jaw-dropping number of ins and outs for a device that’s just shy of nine inches on its longest side. Play music from your cell phone, computer, U disk, hard disk, SD card, or NAS (up to 4 TB), and the DP5 can play it through a pair of single-end or balanced headphones, another audio decoder, another headphone amplifier, or active speakers. 

Your System’s Wireless Lynchpin

With dual-band WiFi (2.4/5GHz), the DP5 supports streaming playback of DLNA and AirPlay, making it an ideal DAC/Amp for Apple users and those looking to bring their music to a home network.

One-Stop Decoder Shop

The SMSL DP5 can handle any file type you throw its way: APE, WAV, WMA, FLAC, DSF, DFF, AIFF, M4A, AAC, OGG, MP2, MP3, and even MQA.


Would you die a little if we told you that MP3 files deliver just 10% of original studio recordings? That’s one-tenth of the nuance, depth, and richness that the artist intended for you to hear. MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) files, on the other hand, deliver the full, uncompressed sound of the original master recordings in all their richness. The DP5 supports full MQA decoding, meaning that it will play your music at the highest possible quality.
