New review posted and firmware comments


#1

Michael Lavorgna from AudioStream just posted a short review of DirectStream. You can read it here.

The last bit of the review talks about the new firmware, 61, so you can get a taste of it.

BTW, here is a quote from another reviewer, one I cannot yet name, that sent me a personal note after trying the new firmware.

After updating the firmware, I played Shelby Lynne's Just a Little Lovin'. I had played it just before the upgrade, and thought it sounded very nice, but after the upgrade, I thought "Hmm, someone's standing behind my rack singing to me." I know that sounds like reviewer BS, but that's actually true.

Another very good review.

The firmware update sounds intriguing. When will it be available?

I’ll try and post it today. Standby.

Thanks, Paul

I am tickled he wrote “If there was an area that I found the DirectStream DAC to diverge from other DACs I enjoy its with timbrel complexity and midrange richness.”

It is as if he is channeling my many (probably too many) posts stating this very same thing.
