SMSL VMV T2: High-quality cd and media player

The SMSL VMV T2 is a high-quality digital media player that supports CD, USB, AES/EBU and HD Bluetooth inputs, as well as optical, coaxial, dual AES/EBU and i2S outputs.


It also supports clock input and output, and the 10MHz clock input improves playback quality over USB and Bluetooth!
The built-in CLOCK ALIGNMENT function allows you to restore the audio clock frequency to 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz, which improves sound density. This feature can be a pleasant surprise when playing CDs and 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz audio files.


Features of SMSL VMV T2:

  • Multifunctional digital interface supporting USB, AES/EBU and HD Bluetooth inputs;
  • PASS (Precision Access Servo System), native MQA-CD support;
  • Clock inputs and outputs, support 44.1 kHz clock frequency and 10 MHz standard or atomic frequency;
  • USB support up to 32bit/768kHz, DSD512, full MQA decoding;
  • The AES/EBU input supports full MQA decoding, allowing it to be used as a standalone MQA decoder;
  • Two low noise, high precision femtosecond local crystal oscillators;
  • Selectable clock input impedance 50 Ohm or 75 Ohm;
  • Built-in CLOCK ALIGNMENT processor for CD sound restoration;
  • Two toroidal transformers and several linear power supplies;
  • High quality Qualcomm Bluetooth chip supporting LDAC (24bit/96kHz), APTX/HD, SBC, AAC;
  • Optical, coaxial, I2S and two independent AES/EBU outputs;
  • Tempered glass fully laminated IPS display with new interface;
  • Supports DOP and bit mapping functions to easily identify the current audio format;
  • High quality aluminum housing with gold plated connectors;
  • Patented linear power supply voltage adaptive switching technology;
  • Hi-Res certification from Japan Audio Society (JAS);
  • Comes with an aluminum alloy remote control.
