DMS-Mini – more than just a “chip” of the old block. Like the popular award winning DMS-500, the DMS-Mini is a network audio player/streamer/DAC with 100% of the same streaming functionality and capabilities of the DMS-500 with an astonishing 90% of the sound quality of the DMS-500, all in a small, beautiful, compact chassis. If you’ve dreamed of owning the DMS-500 but your budget is a bit more modest, the DMS-Mini is the…
WAIT, WAIT…okay, you got us. There is no such thing as a DMS-Mini, but our popular AiOS is exactly as stated above. What most folks don’t realize is that you can use AiOS as a source, just like the DMS-500. Simply connect AiOS to your preamplifier, receiver, etc., using its analog RCA outputs. Turn off the amplifier in AiOS’ menu and set the output volume to 2.0v – 3.0v. Now, you actually do have a “DMS-Mini.”
AiOS can do everything! It can playback all the same formats and streaming sources as the DMS-500. It even uses the same DAC chip and the same app. There’s not one function the DMS-500 has that AiOS doesn’t, except balanced outputs, AES/EBU input, and graphical display. As a matter of fact, AiOS is a hidden gem of a bargain beyond compare. AiOS is a giant killer in the world of network audio players/streamers/DACs given its very affordable price and performance level at 90% of the sonic quality of the DMS-500. However, there is more…
Almost too good to be true. As if all the above wasn’t enough, there is actually quite a bit more that AiOS includes. Such as, a built-in 150 watt Class AB amplifier (based off our SA-200.2 power amplifier), which makes AiOS not only a top-notch source but also an incredible integrated amplifier, if one wishes to use it as such. It not only includes the same digital inputs as the DMS-500, it also includes 3 analog inputs. It has the same aptX Bluetooth function as the DMS-500 and includes Bluetooth SEND to send AiOS’ output to a pair of Bluetooth speakers or headphones. It also includes a 15-band EQ (only active in integrated amplifier mode). Last, but certainly not least, all this is elegantly packaged into a compact, all aluminum embossed chassis with built-in switchable illumination colors and optional matching extruded aluminum side panels. Gorgeous!
If there was ever a high-end bargain, AiOS is definitely it!
