Nice pics and all, thanks for that... but, what does it sound like? Good? Bad? Indifferent?

Edit:

"For those who dislike the auto-turnoff feature on this unit, try pressing the power button for two seconds when it is on. It should switch from "Auto Standby On" to "Auto Standby Off" (or vice-versa)."

"SMSL M8 – A True Reference DAC on a Shoestring Budget"
"To my own ears, I would rate the M8 DAC 95% as good as the Ayre DAC!"
"I recently built a linear 9V DC power supply for the DAC from leftover components. I have yet to compare my power supply versus the M8 stock power supply. But even if you are not skilled in electronics and don’t want to invest in the external SMSL P1 power supply, you can get a perfectly adequate replacement for about $50 from eBay"
"If you’re in the market for a new DAC and don’t want to spend a fortune on 5-star sound quality, you ABSOLUTELY MUST at least consider the SMSL M8 DAC. It is my highest recommendation for 2016 and I will include it in my DAC ranking."

Tks bro for the motivation ;). Roughly it performed nice sounds at least for my state on often listening files. It is too soon to have general comments that I should take listening longer a bit. See you then.
