Over the next few days we’ll launch the DirectStream Memory Player webpages, info, features and photos. In the meantime, we’ve produced a short 15 minute video explaining much about this new state-of-the-art transport.
We decided to change the name of the new transport from DST (DirectStream Transport) to more accurately reflect the important internal technology inside. The Digital Lens inside the DirectStream Memory Player (DMP) is key to the DMP’s amazing ability to uncover that which has stubbornly remained hidden inside CDs, and now, finally uncovered.
The DMP played into DirectStream DAC is something extraordinary on CDs, but even more eye opening because for the first time, we can extract the raw DSD data locked in the SACD layer and play it through DirectStream or DirectStream Junior. And, I am here to tell you, if you’ve only heard your SACD through the analog outputs of your player, you don’t know what is on that layer.
I’ll post information on pages and more data on this remarkable new player when available.
For your information, the current launch schedule has us announcing the beta units availability in October, then production units in December, if the beta launch is successful. For those in the United States wishing to be Beta testers, we’ll announce that in Paul’s Posts soon. Keep a watch out. We will mostly be looking for DirectStream or DirectStream Junior owners, but we will also make beta units available for a select group of non-PS DAC owners as well.
