Guess the peak name - DS, DSjr


#1

Any guesses as to the new name? I vote for Mt. Massive.

The next DirectStream update?
#2

I think they should call it Ted. Would be well deserved recognition of all his hard work.


#3

I vote for Pyramid Peak. (Ted has indicated that the lower sampling frequencies, e.g., 44.1k and 48k, benefit the most from the new SRC algorithm in the upcoming OS. A pyramid is at its strongest at the base level.)


#4

A very good functional guess. I’m hoping that it will match HQPe which I use to upsample to 192khz (limit of my board) to DS. Jussi’s filters are sublime, Ted’s is nice too but compared side by side on many types of tracks, I still prefer Jussi’s. Perhaps this will change with 44.1k and 48k content.

Well, he already has one named after him - the Ted Smith Signature (TSS) DAC coming to a neighborhood near you in 2019.


#6

Windom


#7

The name must stand out…

Las Gemelas

Hopefully it’s not Quandary Peak


#9

Excellent choice. It is part of the Elk Mountains.

I would be amused with Conundrum Peak, also part of the Elk Mountains.


#10

I’m guessing Harvard but Vermillion would be cool!


#11

I wonder what prize PS Audio will award to the winning guesser? The anticipation is more than I can bear.


#12

Free TSS, of course!
