Brothers & Sisters -
The question I have today pertains to a DAC. While my first choice is PSA’s DirectStream, its cost plus the cost of the bridge upgrade put it outside of my budget. Maybe some day…. That said, could anyone recommend a DAC of nearly the same quality - perhaps an earlier PS Audio model or a contemporary equivalent? My ceiling is $3,000.
My functional needs are straightforward: tying my CD player into the overall system, streaming Qobuz at hi-fi quality and, to a lesser degree, playing music from my home library.
Thank you all!
(P.S., The DAC would plug into my PS Audio Signature preamp => PS Audio 250 amp (wish I could have afforded the 300 monoblocks!) => Spendor D7s.)
