Eversolo Flagship DMP -8 - Dac Streamer Server Preamp- A True Audiophile Bargain

For those who can afford to spend $5k on up for a Dac And Separate streamer 

This probably would not interest you . This is for the Audiophile who 

Cherishes Sound Quality and Value on a budget. This DMP-8 fits this perfectly 

This I feel is the best in the under $3k class on so many levels. Starting with a aircraft grade Aluminum case,That being said 

You Can buy this for under $2k .before I proceed  a shout out to

Perrotta consulting for the excellent service - recommendations.

Before I go further look at the Many great reviews on YouTube.

I was very familiar with the Eversolo 6 master edition with the better parts quality

And uses the Sabre dacs. The A8 is much better still and uses the new AKM flagship 4499EX dac chip,

AKM4191 modulator, and AK7739 conversion chip.

This is the most R2R sounding delta sigma dac I have heard to date,

And a ton of brand named parts in the build quality. The latest Xmos Gen3-316

Processor ,excellent interface ipad or droid or the 6 inch touch screen ,

Way to many things to list ,it even has 6 different filters to Taylor to your audio system ,streams pretty much everything out there ,and waiting for Roon certification-weeks away , everything operates very smooth and fast. The dac is very detailed and refined .very natural sounding not bright ,and filters can change tonal balance.if need be depending on your taste ,and they do work well.

It also has a true R2R resistor ladder preamp to relay controlled,far better then cheap digital preamps without losing resolution . I am not saying it will beat my Schiit Freya plus with top NOS tubes ,but it is respectable.

This also has dual femto clocks , a low noise smps power supply incoming as well as a Linear power supply ,with excellent Nichicon gold capacitors for filtering the     D to A conversion.

In our multi state audio get together compared to the under  $3k class against models such as, Ifi audio pro, $2600 Hifi rose ,Gustard A26 I personally owned and don’t agree at all in one review that it betters this AKM dac except more forward sounding and is not a streamer . One thing we always do when testing is use exactly the same system to compare at the home we are at ,I have seen others,even reviewers change a different cable while comparing different products which makes the comparisons not accurate. Just an observation from my experiences.

having 6 filter settings is Very helpful for it keeps the detail, it just rolls it off faster or slower ,#1 filter is a bit warmer , if your speakers for example with tube equipment you may want a more neutral  filter for your setup, it even has DSP , this can change total perspective ,I don’t mess with. if you want to try it for room problems ok .It does have 5 types of meters or a spinning record on the LED display for options  !

Connections most everything you could want including ,I2S.  .one thing was brought to my attention ,

A very good power cord makes a very big improvement . Much  more so then with my terminator dac ,Why because of Dac streamer,preamp being together a high end power cord filters that last 1-2 meters .

I currently am testing the Highly recommended AQ Tornado - Source- power cord with active shielding ,with Excellent  results ! Vs other $3- 500 power cords.

Anthony at Perrotta Consulting gave me a Excellent package $$ deal.

For under $2k to get all this,  this is a fantastic product ,hats off to Eversolo !!



I thought you wanted to get the T+A DAC200.

Anyway, congratulations on the new acquisition. How would you compare the sound quality of this one Vs the T+A DAC8?

Let's hope they come out with a stand alone DAC with AKM chip. I know that chip should not matter. But this company has been garnering great reviews. Based on that I am assuming that the AKM based DAC should be pretty good too.

I also have an A8 and it’s everything you said above.....although I do find a separate stand alone DAC , in my case a moderately price SMSL D400 EX  (1000 MSRP) does bring a little more performance to the table (although this could easily change with an optimized cable solution, etc.)....overall though, the EVERSOLO A8 is huge bang for the buck.

I have 2 setups ,I am saving for the T+A 200 dac , the Mrs will use this 

to keep my man cave intact -lol. I use a good AQ Diamond  end point to the A8

and a final touch Audio cable from the router to the hub which I have a $600 Ethernet hub very detailed and smooth . and the AQ Tornado source power-cord 

is a nice Sonic upgrade.
