Modding DirectStream DAC MKII

Not sure why this post from 3 months ago shows up in the bottom of this topic however I will answer anyway.

Because we want the best sound we can get out of this already great DAC.
The transformers are the weak point in these as PS Audio has to draw the line somewhere to meet their retail sale price point as do every manufacture.
If you heard the MK2 with the nickel transformers you would know first-hand why. It brings out the sound we all have grown to love with Ted’s Beast.
A little taste of what the TSS might sound like.
It brings the MK2 up to the level of DAC’s costing many times more.
Fortunately Ted fixed all the hardware issues found in the original DS.

Elk is doing housekeeping and consolidating topics.


Exactly, and trying to eliminate cross-posting.


You are the consummate librarian!

Thanks for all of your efforts.


I think his real name is Mr. Atos. :wink:

This topic is all out of order and impossible to follow now. It wasn’t great before.
It goes in order until yesterday then jumps to Dec 22 then back to this AM.
Reminds me of back to the future.


We will adjust quickly.

And so it goes, as Mr. Vonnegut would say.

If you need help, you can come to Oregon for some psilocybin therapy. It’s what all the cool kids are doing.


That’s more like Spaceballs…“when will then be now?”

You folks on the East Coast are too uptight about time. It’s not linear! :sunglasses:


I am in a time loop where every day is the same as yesterday and tomorrow, more or less. They did warn me about the side-effects of retirement. Even the music I played became similar, except for Qubuz new music list on every Friday. I do not think I will survive without it. I can only play so much golf.




That’s my perfect state of mind!
Can’t wait for retirement, even if it will never happen, sobh. Dreaming costs nothing!

Your adjustments are not working.
It’s probably best to start over with a new topic and let this one rest.

Everything is posting just fine.

Perhaps at some point someone will post on topic. :slight_smile:

Post work however the order is messed up and impossible to follow.

All will be fine once there is actual ongoing discussion. This will be the same as starting an entirely new thread would be.

I am sorry for any inconvience.
