I’m sold on the superiority of DSD in terms of musicality.
I simply can’t listen to Delta Sigma DACs without getting listener fatigue pretty quickly. R2R NOS DACs so far do the trick for me but at a price. Since most of my music collection is in the redbook format I do miss the detail which oversampling adds to the music.
Since Chord offers with the Qutest a FPGA based DAC below $2k I was wondering if PS Audio is considering entering the market with a more affordable scaled down version of their DirectStream DACs.
Since Ted is busy with the Obsidian right now, I don’t expect such a DAC to hit the market anytime soon, yet it’d be still great to know if there are plans at all.
