It is new DSD SR. Day at my house

Hooray! FedEx finally found a way to let me have my new DAC. I powered down my system a swapped the DSD JR for the DSD SR. Of course my audio computer didn’t want to work anymore, but I got that sorted. Then the Matrix wanted attention. Finally everything is settled and I get the listen to the new DAC. I am so pleased. I’ll be even more pleased when the DSD JR lands on my computer desk so I can enjoy my office system in a new light. Hooray!

Thank you PS Audio for all that you do!

Tomorrow my P20 arrives. Whoohoo!


Congrats x2!

Remember, the weather is still cold in most places. Let the unit (P20) warm up slowly to room temperature. I let my DAC sit, after removing from shipping boxes, overnight for about 14 hours with no power or other cables attached. Even after 6 hours the, side of the unit was still cool. Yes, the wait is difficult.

I worry about sudden expansion of cold circuits and electronics that might expand to fast, resulting in possible damage. I am a little anal but cautious.

Lol you are very OCD like me!

Man, you’re a kill joy. Let him open his new toy and have him play with it right from the get-go.

Yes I think it is overboard. I can understand that some people are ultra cautious but unless PS Audio are suggesting this behaviour it is entirely unnecessary.

It was plenty warm when I opened the package. It’s even warmer now. I believe I can already appreciate the difference between Jr an Sr.

If its cold and you want to play with it (oops wrong direction :smile: ). Well, dust it and polish it, may be talk to it. Glad to hear that it was warm.
Also PSA’s manuals are not complete. I use the opportunity to call and chat up any question with Jamesh. Life is great, (with music of course).

You shouldn’t have to 2nd-guess the manual. If turning on a cold-soaked gizmo causes it to go into a nuclear meltdown, when there is no warning against doing so in the manual, well, that sounds like a warranty claim to me. But I reckon you’d be pretty safe dusting off the snow and plugging it into the wall with no wait time required.
