We finally received a demo device of one of our best-selling products. The product got high praise from various youtubers and now let's see if the laurels are justified.
We are talking about the EverSolo DMP-A6 Streamer with DAC.
The conscientious and high-quality packaging of the device already increases the anticipation. (The black box is also protected in another outer packaging)
The DMP-A6 rests securely in foam and is additionally protected from scratches by a fabric bag. Even the cinch sockets are provided with plastic caps to prevent dust from getting in - such an effort is otherwise only seen in significantly more expensive devices!
And off we go to set it up. Select language, log into the network and the Eversolo is ready for use. The whole thing took me a few minutes.
The device offers an optional control app "EverSolo Control", which can be downloaded directly via QR code. Since the device does not come with a remote control, that's great!
By the way, I didn't use the app for the time being to see how the streamer can be operated without a smartphone.
This is the home screen, from which various functions of the device can be called up, such as streaming or the advanced setup of the DMP-A6.
Since I wanted to listen to music right away, I tapped on Streaming, which has various streaming services pre-installed. Since I have a Tidal subscription, I quickly logged in and et voila - everything was where it should be.
Since I had heard and read a lot of good things about the Eversolo's internal DAC, I put a RAAL requisite HSA-1b high-end headphone amplifier and RAAL SR1b headphones at its side. A high-quality Supra Sword Excalibur XLR Rhodium Anniversary Edition ensured a lossless connection.

I already mentioned it: The DMP-A6 is not only excellently packaged, it is actually also excellently processed. So good that you would expect a significantly higher price tag.
What immediately strikes you is how easy and quick it is to use the DMP-A6.
Everything is easy to read, well structured and logically structured. You scroll through menus and playlists so smoothly that you feel reminded of a high-end smartphone.
As a longtime user experience designer, I have a satisfied grin - full marks! 😊🙌
I haven't had much time to listen to music with the EverSolo, but the brief listening session confirms what various customers and reviewers are saying about the DMP-A6: it sounds outrageously good for the price.
I'm not saying that it eliminates the need for more expensive DACs, because that would be an exaggeration. But I say that the EverSolo rightly has an excellent reputation in the audiophile community and even as a pure streamer - connected to a high-end DAC - would still be worth its price.
As a control center with an integrated DAC, the DMP-A6 is a real bargain!
Would you like an upgrade?
If a friendly customer hadn't pointed this out to me, I wouldn't have known that there was a Master Edition of the DMP-A6.
For a reasonable surcharge you get a sound-enhanced device that comes with femto clocks and better op-amps.
Differences to the DMP-A6
- Clock System 2 ACCUSILICON FEMTOSECOND oscillators with noise reduction and improved jitter
- OPA chips OPA1612 with ultra-low noise and low distortion 1KHz 0.000015%
- Gold-colored details on the case
I'm already looking forward to hearing about this upgrade and presenting it in our new showroom.
