    Stereophile A+ and product of the year, with rave reviews across the board. The PS Audio Directstream DAC is one of the great bargains in hi-end audio. I've compared this DAC to a wide variety of world class DACs, including the Bricasti M1 SE, and Mytek Manhattan II, and preferred it for its warmth and musicality. One of the nice things about it is its FPGA circuitry allows periodic firmware updates, basically providing an improved, new unit which evolves with the times. Still, you can roll back and choose the firmware you like best. The current Windom update was a massive improvement and moved the DAC to another level. The excellent Bridge II card obviates the need for a separate renderer and supports full MQA. I'm selling because I'm moving from an apartment to a spacious house for the first time. Compared to the unbelievable price of Seattle real estate, going crazy on a whole new system didn't seem so expensive. So I'm replacing everything and have purchased a DAC over twice the price. However, I can tell you the improvement was subtle to moderate. I've actually questioned the decision, but here I am. I'm upgrading everything so I'm also selling Bel Canto ref 600 mono blocks, a PS Audio BHK preamp with extra tubes , Kef Reference 3 speakers, and tons of Tellurium Q, SOtM and Tara Labs cables, and have already sold Antipodes CX, EX and P2, Kef LS 50s. and a MUTEC clock. The unit is about 3 years old and is in excellent condition, as the photos attest. It is upgraded to the latest firmware. List is $6898 and I'm selling it below market for $3600. Check US Audio Mart, these DACs with the Bridge II are selling from 3900 to 4100. Some great reviews - even prior to the groundbreaking Windom release. https://www.stereophile.com/content/ps-audio-perfectwave-directstream-da-processor http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/ps-audio-perfectwave-directstream-dac/ https://audiobacon.net/2018/12/20/ps-audio-directstream-dac-playing-in-snowmass/ https://darko.audio/2019/01/chord-dave-vs-ps-audio-directstream/ Comes with all original boxes, packaging, and remote.

  3. View Classified MUTEC MC3+ USB If you're aware of the MUTEC MP3+ USB external clock and SPDIF converter, nothing more needs to be said. For those who aren't, it's a world class external clock that both improves the clock of your current DAC or clock dependent digital components (e.g., Etherregen) and enables you to improve/add digital SPDIF capabilities to your system. Considering the prices of external clocks, it's an amazing value at $1199 new. I'm selling a virtually new one for $875 shipped. It's about three months old and barely used, as the photos will att

    Yes, I have a problem. I just spent more than a car on an SGM Extreme. I'll leave the reasons why I quickly churn through world-class audio components to my shrink and audio anonymous sponsor. But, the result is I'm selling a 6-month-old Antipodes CX, including a 2TB Samsung 860 EVO SSD (with 1.3 TB of music) for $3950. I'll throw in a free 5' Audience AU SE two-headed USB cable ($900 list) so you can take advantage of Antipodes' capability to separate data and power via USB transmission. If you don't want the SSD, it's $3750 for the CX and I'll still throw in the USB cable.I've owned an Innuos Statement and compared the CX+EX combo to the Innuos + EX. The results were a matter of taste. The Innuos + EX was slightly more laid back/smooth, while the CX+EX had a little more punch. (I only compared using Roon. I didn't compare Innuos' native OS or other non-Roon configurations.)The unit is in mint condition and has the original boxes, unused cables, and packaging.Happy to send additional photos.Finally, the CX will be upgrade-able to Antipodes' upcoming OLADRA technology.Domestic shipping is included, but the buyer is responsible for additional insurance.Payment fees, e.g., PayPal, aren't included.

  10. Once again, Rajiv, a great, highly valuable review. I found a derivative benefit to be the comparison of PSUs. I'd be curious where the Mojo-Audio Illuminati fits in. I've had great results. It (or the lesser Joule V) compared better than every PSU I tested, including the top end ($1900?) Sonore. If you could get your hands on one i'd be interested in your opinion vs the top end Paul Hynes. I've never heard the Paul Hynes, but others have said they prefer the Illuminati. Given the lower price and greater availability of the Illuminati it could could be worthwhile for re
