Once again - Bulls eye!

I wonder if he used 6115?


#2

Yes he did.

i loved this line, as well as the Angelou quote.

“I feel for such folks, but you know the old saying: “If it sounds great and measures poorly, then we’re measuring the wrong damned thing.” I suspect it has happened again.”

This is a brilliant design, with exceptional execution, and paradigm-setting sound.

I can tell you, this bloody DAC, DSD to the fore, is a real killer. Flat-out, stone-cold, and damn-straight.

It has been a while since 2008, but now I have to say that the DirectStream DAC is the first real rival to Playback Designs that I’ve heard. It goes right to the top of my heap of DSD DACs, right next door to the PD Series-3.

The envelope for the audio arts has moved out yet again. To tell you the truth, I couldn’t be more pleased! This is good for music, for our recordings, and for us all.

And that is the highest compliment that I can pay to PS Audio’s breakthrough product….
