SOTM SMS-200 NEO & Uptone USB Adapter/Connector
Purchased new in May 2019- like new with original boxes/paperwork. The factory warranty is still valid and I'll send you the receipts just in case. It works flawlessly and has never had an issue.
The 60 day free Roon subscription code is still valid/never used and included- I already have a Roon subscription.
I went on one of those rabbit hole research binges to decide on this hardware and the positive reviews are right- the SotM SMS-200 NEO took my system to another level.
Additionally, the Uptone USB hard connector is the best cheap improvement you can make in your streamer and DAC. It's like have the SotM hardwired to your DAC.
I also have for sale in a separate listing, the Uptone LPS 1.2 battery bank power supply. If you use that instead of the switching power supply that comes with the SotM, the improvement in noise floor and even firmer foundation and tightness of bass is very noticeable. Noise is nonexistent and background is deep black. I highly recommend getting them together and would offer a discount.
Read up on the reviews for this combo- which are both new models released this year. It's been an incredible sound in my system with Roon. I hate selling it but I agreed with the wife to get a one box solution so she can just press one button to listen to the system. If you have a non-tube DAC (so you can keep it on all the time) and/or wife that can press a few buttons, then buy my Lampizator Amber II DAC also listed on Audiogon and I'll cut you a deal.
I tested this setup against the Auralic Aries with linear power supply and Femto clock upgrade and the SotM/Uptone combo had a very noticeably blacker background (therefore better seperation) and ease in the mids and bass with a wider/deeper image. It was not night and day-- the Aries is pretty good but clunky-- but the SotM/Uptone combo was definitely a major noticeable improvement.
