DMP-A8's playback completely bypasses typical Android SC restrictions, enabling the direct audio output of third-party apps such as Apple Music.
Master Recording Playback and Decoding
Almost all ultra-high sampling master recording formats are supported by DMP-A8, including CD-quality formats (FLAC, WAV, APE), DSD512 (.dsf/.dff/.iso/.dst) stereo/multichannel, and MQA.
MQA Full Decoding
DMP-A8 includes MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) technology through USB, Optical, and Coaxial, which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams, delivering the sound of the original master recording.
Hybrid DACs with Separated Digital (AK4191EQ) and Analog (AK4499EX) Sections
DMP-A8 features an industry-leading two-chip DAC solution from AKM, stereo D/A conversion. The design minimizes the effects of digital noise within the analog output, resulting in a perceived improvement in signal to noise ratio. DSD512, PCM768 @32bit, and MQA hardware decoding are supported.
Dual High-Precision Clocks
Much like the upgraded DMP-A6 Master Edition, the DMP-A8 features two ultra-low phase noise Accusilicon femtosecond high-precision clocks for audio decoding circuit (45.1584MHz and 49.152MHz), which correspond to the decoding of 44.1KHz and 48KHz multiplied sampling rates respectively. This effectively suppresses Jitter, ensuring highly accurate conversion and decoding of digital-to-analog audio signals, providing ultra-high dynamic range and resolution for output. Upgraded OPA1612 op-amps with ultra-low noise and low distortion (0.000015% at 1kHZ) further this effect. 
Ideal Implementation
Just as — if not more — important as the DAC chips is how they've been implemented in a system. Thanks to EverSolo development engineers' rich experience in analog circuit design, DMP-A8 has a professional-grade calibration and circuit design. The total harmonic distortion ratio which has been measured is -120dB (0.00009%), while signal-to-noise ratio and dynamic range are 128dB. These indicators are a core foundation for sound quality.
Flexible and Powerful DSP Functionality
New to DMP-A8 are Digital Signal Processing options. Incorporating a robust DSP module, A8 supports DSP volume control, Parametric EQ, Finite Impulse Response filtering, High Pass and Low Pass filters, loudness enhancement, compressor, and delay. The DSP module supports up to PCM 192Khz. PCM and DISD formats with a sampling rate higher than this will bypass the DSP. DSP is only for internal player, network streaming, optical input, coaxial input, USB input, Bluetooth input and ARC input, and takes effect only when producing analog output.
Abundant Digital Filters
Choose from a variety of digital filter modes in the DAC setting menu to meet different demands and preferences. DMP-A8 features 7 PCM filters and 4 DSD filters from which to select.
Qualcomm QCC5125 Bluetooth Module
In addition to wired inputs, DMP-A8 also features a built-in Bluetooth audio receiver in the form of the Qualcomm QCC5125 module. Thanks to support for the full suite of SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX LL, aptX HD, and LDAC codecs, you'll know you're getting the best possible Bluetooth quality when you pair your mobile phone, tablet, or computer.
XMOS 316 Processor for Format Support
The 3rd generation XMOS 316 has faster speed and better USB bandwidth than previous processors, which ensures lossless transmission for high-definition audio data. The USB output supports DSD512 Native, PCM768@32bit, and MQA full decoding. Optical and Coaxial outputs support DSD64 (DoP) and PCM192@24Bit.
Handpicked Audio Components
The sound quality of DMP-A8 analog output is monitor-level. The primary elements of the audio circuit are excellent, including WIMA capacitors from Germany, NICHCON dedicated audio capacitors, Murata chip capacitor and Omron relays from Japan, TI Audio Operational Amplifiers from the USA, and more. The goal is to provide more authentic and pure sound performance.
Resistor to Resistor (R2R) Volume Control Circuit
A fully balanced analog volume adjustment network composed of precision resistors and relays achieves accurate volume control, effectively suppressing distortion and noise in the analog signal. It also features volume protection, automatically reducing excessive volume to the designated safe level during startup or input interface switching. The incorporation of R2R analog volume control ensures that the DAC can operate at its optimal state continuously.
Fully Balanced Analog Preamplifier
The DMP-A8 is equipped with a high-performance fully balanced preamplifier circuit, supporting XLR and RCA analog inputs. It also features a + 10dB analog gain and, when combined with the R2R analog volume control network, ensures ultra-low noise and distortion for the output.
Dual Power Supply Design with LPS+SPS
In order to eliminate interference and noise between the system circuit and the audio circuit, and to enhance sound purity, separate designs are employed for the power supply of the system and the audio circuit. A linear power supply is composed of a multi-winding toroidal transformer, specifically designed to match the characteristics of analog audio circuits. A high-quality switching power supply is tailored for the system circuit, significantly reducing ripple and magnetic leakage interference, and providing strong support for high-quality digital audio processing. Furthermore, it incorporates a patented smart switching technology for the linear power supply voltage input, enabling compatibility with voltages worldwide without flipping switches.
Rich Inputs and Outputs
DMP-A8 can be used as a digital hub to connect with external high-end DACs by HDMI IIS, USB, optical, and coaxial outputs. As a DAC, it supports a wide range of digital inputs: HDMI eARC for television, two coaxial, two optical, plus USB B input to connect PCs and mobile devices. As a high-performance preamplifier, it supports analog input via XLR and RCA. It also supports aptX HD Bluetooth audio input, making it easy to connect with various digital audio sources. The DMP-A8 can be directly paired with active speakers or power amplifier via analog preamp outputs RCA and XLR. The new Trigger out port can achieve the linkage with power amplifier systems.
HDMI ARC Input
The DMP-A8, equipped with HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) input, can be connected to display devices such as TVs and projectors that have HDMI ARC capability. This allows the separation and transfer of audio signals from the HDMI signal to the DMP-A8, providing your TV with a higher quality sound.
