Directstream Memory Player vs Perfectwave SACD Transport

I would like to know the difference between the DMP and PerfectWave Transport? I have a large selection of CD’s and maybe 1 SACD. When playing CD’s on the DMP vs PT would I notice a significant difference in sound quality? Thank you.

You’ll definitely notice an improvement in sound quality going from the DMP to the PST. I don’t happen to think it’s huge, but the PST definitely sounds better.

Just to be clear, are you asking about the PWT or the PST in comparison to the DMP?

Just want to make sure you get relevant feedback…


DMP in comparison to the newest PS Audio transport the Perfectwave SACD Transport currently available for purchase from PS Audio. Thank you.

I think PST is better sound quality- the music comes alive. It’s galvanic isolation makes a difference.

It’s been two years since I made the upgrade though I clearly recall a significant improvement in SQ. It was a worthwhile switch for me in that regard.

That would be my estimation too. It wasn’t huge, and we lost the ability to play some DVD and Blu-ray discs. I still have my DMP in a headphone only system.
