Looking for a purer, more optimized streamer with upgraded DAC components? Check out the DMP-A6 Master Edition!
Did you ever have someone randomly drop a never-before-heard-of streamer on your desk to check out, open and set it up blindly ignoring the manual, find it to be one of the simplest streamer setup processes you’ve ever had, and then listen to it expecting a $2000 or higher price tag only to find it’s less than $900, resulting in reverse sticker-shock?
Yeah, me neither… until the EverSolo DMP-A6.
Initial setup for a streamer is typically the most painful with an inevitable snafu requiring you to start over. With DMP-A6, the setup was akin to connecting a tablet to the WiFi, and within 2 minutes, I was listening to music. Using the app was similarly uncomplicated and painless, but feel free to skip it and stream with AirPlay, Roon, or DLNA, or connect directly through TIDAL, Amazon Music, Spotify, Qobuz, etc. In stride, the available input and outputs consist of an army of both digital and analog options with almost every currently available connection possible. As with most streamers we’ve used, network streaming was optimal with ethernet connection to the LAN.
The DMP-A6 has become the Bloom “office jukebox” where we all take turns sending over our favorite tracks from Qobuz to a pair of Canton Smart Townus 8 loudspeakers hooked up to the EverSolo. As a DAC, it demonstrates a solid reference tuning with presentation of detail and imaging comparable with other popular DAC options in its price range. This.Thing.Rules.
Check out our full review for the details and full impressions.
A New Epoch
To launch a new era of music streaming, EverSolo spent years solving the typical challenges with traditional streamers and created the DMP-A6. An all-in-one player, it's purpose-built for lossless music playback. With a wide selection of digital input and output options along with DSD support and a pro quality DAC, DMP-A6 seeks to provide an unprecedented experience for music lovers that aims to consolidate your local music collection and online streaming with a simple, powerful system.
EverSolo EOS Audio Engine
EOS (EverSolo Original-Sampling-Rate Audio Engine) was developed by in-house engineers and enables bit-perfect audio playback that bypasses any Android OS restrictions on which EOS is built.
Dual ES9038Q2M DAC
Two ESS ES9038Q2M DACs are used, and 2 DAC chips = 2 channels for D/A conversion output independently. That equates to effective avoidance of interference between channels, reduction of background noise, better signal-to-noise ratio, and improved dynamic range. The DAC supports DSD512, PCM768@32bit, and MQA decoding.
Master Recording Playback and Decoding
DMP-A6 supports a wide range of ultra-high resolution audio formats including DSD, PCM, FLAC, APE and MQA.
Touchscreen for Better UI
Equipped with a 6" LCD touchscreen, DMP-A6 provides a simple but exquisite user interface, as well as intuitive touch controls for system settings, music browsing, and third party apps.
DOH Chips for HDMI DSD Multichannel
As a multi-channel streamer, DMP-A6 uses DOH processing chips for DSD audio over HDMI. This provides support for raw multi-channel output and DSD to PCM output. The DOH chips also provide a high-precision independent HDMI clock.
Internal M.2 SSD Slot
An M.2 NVME 3.0 2280 SSD slot is built into the DMP-A6 so you can install an SSD for music storage without removing the device cover. Capable of up to 4TB capacity, the speed, stability, and silent operation of SSDs make them perfect for local music storage and playback.
Low Ripple, High Performance Power
The DMP-A6 is equipped with a low-noise regulated switching power supply module and several dedicated audio capacitors to provide less ripple and interference. To reduce HF line noise, a choke filter circuit is installed providing cleaner power, less background noise, and clear musical details.
Rich Selection of Input and Output
DMP-A6 can connect to a variety of audio devices via a number of digital inputs and outputs. You get the classics like USB, Optical, and Coaxial, as well as newer standards like HDMI, Bluetooth, WiFi, and wired ethernet connections. You also get RCA and XLR outputs for connection to active speakers or amplifiers.
3rd Gen XMOS 316 Audio
With the 3rd Gen XMOS 316 audio processor, DMP-A6 has faster speed and higher USB bandwidth, ensuring the lossless transmission of Hi-Def audio data. USB port supports DSD512 Native, PCM768 @32bit and MQA full decoding. Optical and Coaxial ports support DSD64 (DoP), PCM192@24Bit.
Low Jitter, Dual Clock Processing
Low-jitter high-precision dual clocks are designed for DMP-A6. Two high-precision crystal oscillators (45.1584MHz and 49.152MHz) respectively correspond to 44.1 KHz and 48KHz multiplied sampling, effectively reducing jitter and achieving more precise audio decoding.
Fully Balanced Preamp Circuit
DMP-A6 analog circuit adopts fully balanced design from DAC chip to the XLR and RCA stereo output and provides better noise immunity and improves channel separation by eliminating shared loops for more consistent signal quality.
The sound quality of DMP-A6 analog output is monitor-level. The primary elements of the circuit are premium, including WIMA capacitors from Germany, NICHCON dedicated audio capacitors, Murata capacitors and Omron relays from Japan, and TI audio operational amplifiers from the USA.
Music Services Galore
The DMP-A6 incorporates popular music services like TIDAL, Qobuz, HIGHRESAUDIO, Amazon Music etc. You can take advantage of numerous high-quality online music services and revel in the allure of limitless streaming music along with support for numerous third party APPs for high resolution audio direct output using the original EOS engine. (*The number of installed music services is dependent upon the certification progress and subject to the installed firmware - more music services to come!)
Wireless Music Streaming
Roon Ready, Tidal Connect, and DLNA are supported. High quality music can be streamed online to mobile devices on the same LAN, making it simpler to enjoy online music services and easier to play back music at home.
Effective Media Management
With its powerful system, you can seamlessly handle editing tasks for both local and network storage like copying, pasting, cutting, and deleting. The configurable USB OTG port adds a personal touch to connectivity, effortlessly bridging your PC and the DMP-A6 through a USB cable for hassle-free file copying and management. Sharing with other media playback devices, computers, or mobile devices on the LAN is seamless.
CD Playback and Ripping
The DMP-A6 allows for CD playback by connecting an external USB optical disc. CD Rip APP adopts a data validation mechanism and error correction function to losslessly save audio data from CD. The app's algorithm intelligently matches CD album and song names (officially released CDs required), losslessly rips tracks, and automatically generates album and artist info.
Smart Control App
Android + iPhone/iPad control apps are available for the DMP-A6. In addition to basic playback control and system settings, they support asynchronous viewing of music library data and menus. Screen mirroring is also supported by installing third-party App.
