Greetings,

 

My name is May and I’m working for SOtM as a marketing manager. It’s so pleasure to introduce myself here officially and great chance to announce the sMS-200 availability through this chance.

 

Some may already have known our sMS-200 but some may not know about this brilliant mini network player, so here I briefly introduce what sMs-200 is,

[ATTACH=CONFIG]28837[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]28838[/ATTACH]

It features

- Excellent modern design.

- Use the separated audio power board.

- Use the exclusive large audio condenser.

- Use the exclusive audio components to reach forward to analog sound.

- Use the heat sinks for the stable operation and anti-noise.

- Use the high standard noise reduction circuit which has been qualified by SOtM’s tX-USBexp, SATA filter and others.

- Use the high standard active noise filter and UKJC which has been qualified by SOtM’s tX-USBexp, sDP-1000EX and others.

- Use the High-End audio grade USB port.

- Use the 2 x standard USB ports for USB storage device.

 

The pictures below prove how sMS-200 is valuable. And the new features are planning to be also updated step by step.

And there will be the same series of products coming up, the USB audio signal re-generator called tX-USBUltra will be the next up which has the upgraded "sCLK clock" board installed and the audio grade power supply will be following up soon. All these combinations will bring you the most satisfaction.

Sorry that I just found a bit typo in the middle of mentioning features about "UKJC", it should be modified to "ultra low jitter clock".

and somehow the pictures don't show up, I asked the web-administrator to help me to show up them accordingly.

 

Thank you.

Hello and thanks for providing all this info. I am planning on buying the SMS-200. I was wondering if the power supply you mention is specifically made for it, if it has similar cosmetics and if the two will be available in a bundle package.

Hello, tedwoods,

Thank you for your request. The new power supply is the similar costmetics with sMS-200 and and I think we can make the two(if you mean sMS-200 and the new power supply) in a special bundle package :)

 

Thank you very much!

Best regards, May

Will that be a regular PSU or a battery one ?

It will be a regular PSU, I will update more news once the prototype is on my hand as well.

And for your additional information, we named the new USB audio signal regenerator to tX-USBUltra.

 

Thank you :)

Best regards, May

Just want to let folks know that I finally got the sMS-200 in my system. Very nice build, and so far sounds fantastic. Been going for about 2 hours and my system has never sounded this good. The customer service and courtesy provided by May is very authentic compared to other companies. Am I ready to sell my uRendu? Not just yet. I want to put more hours on this and get comfortable with it before I decide. I may just put the uRendu in my HT in the meantime and see how it holds up there. Anyway, since there are very few actual comments regarding the sound of the SoTm 200, I thought others might benefit from knowing that IMO. it is at the very least, just as good, and I have very high praise for the Rendu.

Glad to see this thread.

 

I am really enjoying my SMS-200. To me, it sounds great. For example, I was listening to a Bowie song and one of the musical instruments revealed itself to be castanets instead of I-don-'t-know-what I thought they were before.

Oh yeh, actually that kind of impression was what I really would like to share with other guys, for example when I first used the iSO-CAT6 in my system at that time, I was SO surprised since I could hear totally new music.. still it was the same music file and the same system, I could hear much detailed and big backgroud, which was so impressed.. I'm very glad to hear you could experience the same :) Really happy to share the such impression with you and thank you !

 

Best regards, MAy

For reasons I needed/wanted to replace the power supply that came with the SMS-200. So I got a pair of no-name LPS from ebay since I also needed one for my W4S uLink.

 

Using just the one on the SMS-200 seemed to improve things a tiny bit but it could easily have been nothing. A very slightly less strident presentation.

 

Adding the LPS to the uLink exposed some additional detail in the music. Very rewarding purchases.

 

Given the above, I do see the SMS-200 a very worthwhile addition to my system.

Thank you for the update and such feedback is the one everyone is looking forward to hearing.. and I'm sorry that I didn't put the correct type of power supply at that time.

What if you can add some accessories such as iSO-CAT6 in your network audio system? I bet it will bring another surprise.

I just want to say thanks to May and the SOtM team for their first class customer service.

 

I made a recent SOtM purchase and even though there was a very small minor issue with the product, it was sorted out in the first class way we all hope for with any purchase.

 

A very happy SOtM customer here. Highly recommended and I'm looking forward to my next SOtM purchase ! :-)

Quite a nice review:

 

I've always used and LPS with mine SMS-200 so I don't know how much of a difference it makes vs the standard PS.

 

This review is being linked on quite a few forums at the moment. I've got a microRendu (also with a LPS) but the fact that Hanz says the SMS-200 is a step up will get alot of attention. I think it's a little cheaper too. Great work by SOtM. I'll be keeping an eye on more of these reviews for sure.

I've just got mine, b.t.w.

Also bear in mind that sotm is coming out with its own hybrid power supply, the sps-500, that also looks -and by all accounts must be- "killer" too.

It appeared at RMAF (there are pics in sotm's facebook page) but if anyone who has attended has any additional info and cares to spill the beans, I'd be more than happy to hear about that too.

Hans review in the end said that with both powered by the S-booster, the SMS-200 was "a tad" better.

 

It may also be true that which one is better depends on the PS. Not for sure that every PS will effect both devices equally.

 

In most places the SMS-200 will be less expensive, so that is definitely in its favor.
