    Introducing DirectStream DAC, both Stereophile and Absolute Sound’s Product Of The Year. Handwritten, discrete, perfection based conversion that uncovers all the missing information hiding in your digital audio media for all these years. CD’s, downloads, high-resolution PCM or DSD based media are expertly upsampled in the DirectStream to twenty times DSD rate and output as pure analog directly into your amplifier or preamplifier. Classic PCM based DACS, including many of today’s DACS that can also process DSD, tend to cover up some of the subtle musical details buried deep within digital audio music; a problem inherent in their architecture. DirectStream solves this problem by employing a pure DSD single-bit approach for both PCM as well as DSD media. This means that your entire library of music can finally reveal all the music and subtle low-level details buried deep within its core. Imagine going to a recording studio and listening to a master tape of any recording made. This is the experience DirectStream provides its owners who enjoy a renewed sense of enjoyment and discovery when listening to everything in their library: CD’s, downloads, DSD.


Nieuwe wijn in oude zak zou ik willen zeggen. Deze PS Audio speler is voorzien van een compleet nieuw binnenwerk.

De PS Audio is omgebouwd van een Perfect Wave DAC naar de Direct Stream Dac. Het verhaal gaat dat een zekere heer Ted Smith, een software engineer, software heeft geschreven voor opname en reproductie van digitaal geluid. Hij noemde dat DirectStream. Ted Smith heeft twee jaar met Paul McGowan, eigenaar van PS Audio, samengewerkt om dit principe in de PS Audio Direct Stream Dac te verwezelijken.  Er is door de ontwerpers alles aan gelegen om de opzet in deze Direct Stream Dac zo eenvoudig mogelijk te houden. In deze DAC zitten geen IC’s maar alles wordt softwarematig verwerkt. De bedoeling is geweest om het ruisniveau en de digitale vervorming zo laag mogelijk te houden. Er is niet bezuinigd op de voedingen. Doordat het principe van de digitale verwerking softwarematig gebeurt  is er in de toekomst geluidsverbeteringen te realiseren door software updates. Nou dat is mooi?
