PerfectWave DAC II


#1

I have two questions re: Perfectwave Dac ii.

Would a digital filter between my computer and dac likely improve sound?

Will a Directstream Memory Player work fully with my Perfectwave?


#2

although i am not sure what digital filter you mean I am sure the PWD mkII works fine with DMP :slight_smile:


#3

A filter designed to reduce jitter.


#4

Jitter reduction devices can work. It depends on the device and on what format (optical, AES/EBU, etc.). If you have a specific product in mind you can mention it. Someone may have experience with it. Otherwise, try it and see.


#5

Can anyone recommend a device that has worked well?


#6

What type of input to the PWDII are you trying to reduce jitter with?


#7

USB mainly but on occasion s/pdif.


#8

Here (link below) is a bargain option – not out much if you don’t discern an improvement. If it does help, you can get an idea as to how and what it does; and be on the lookout for potentially even more effective options that work using the same principles.
