The sMS-200ultra has been given a facelift! Introducing the new and improved sMS-200ultra Neo, with a deeper mid-range and richer bass expression as compared to the original. The Neo will be replacing the original sMS-200ultra once it becomes available. The pricing will remain the same as the original sMS-200ultra.
The sMS-200 continues to impress, with great dynamics and a brighter sound, as compared to the new sMS-200ultra Neo.

Why should you modify?
The sMS-200ultra has the sCLK-EX clock with 4 points. The sCLK-EX can be used for all digital devices that require clock signals such as DAC, USB host card, CD player, PC main board and LAN controller.
Two points are used by the system internally (sCLK-EX2425) and two points left free to clock other digital devices (eg Ethernet switch).
What is the modification?
Enable one point (clock)
Replacing 2 x regulators in the Ethernet switch
Replacing the capacitors in the Ethernet switch
Add SMB connection (coaxial RF connectors)
This modification works to eliminate noise coming from the Ethernet connection and improves/cleans the sound as a result.
