One month ago I purchased a factory refurbished PS Audio PerfectWave MKII DAC and I really love the sound it provides with redbook CD’s!!
Now I want to upgrade to the PS Audio DirectStream DAC because it is reported to have superior redbook playback plus it plays DSD files.
My two choices are:
- Purchase the DirectStream upgrade kit to install in my current PerfectWave MKII.
- Purchase a DirectStream DAC and sell my PWD MKII.
The downside of the upgrade kit is there is no real value in the boards and power supply from a PWD MKII unless someone with a PWD MKI would want to purchase them to upgrade their PWD MKI to a PWD MKII.
Any thoughts or opinions on which path to take? Anyone out there interested in upgrading their PWD MKI??
