There are some great deals happening now with the DS Dac. With the new streamer likely coming out in the next year though I wonder if this means that the DS Dac moves to legacy status that might see no additional OS updates (a big plus for the DS Dac IMHO)? I’ve searched to see if there is any information on the future plans for updating/servicing these units without luck.
Thanks @paul172 this confirms what I was thinking. I would be surprised if PS Audio did not support the unit if it were to fail (the customer service is spectacular) but upgrades were in question. I’ll have to give it some thought. The DS Dac is a great unit but getting long in the tooth so no longer future proof.
I have no doubt PS Audio will support the Dac minus the updates. Like @vkennedy61 posted there is a mark II Dac thread and many including myself have modified our Directstream dacs. I’m a entry level modder. The are some including @vkennedy61@Turbotk and @jkrichards are next level Dac modification artist!
