I currently have a DirectStream DAC and would like to send it raw DSD at some point. I’m trying to find the differences between the models or versions, but it’s still not that clear to me.
- Current - PerfectWave SACD Transport. Plays SACD and can send raw DSD to the DirectStream DAC. This one was the was the easy one, but I’m looking at used, or at least at a significant discount. I can’t justify paying this much for a CD player yet. I say CD Player, so it’s easier to justify why I can’t pay that much. lol
- Older - DirectStream Memory Player (DMP). I identify this one by seeing the little USB between the touchscreen and the CD Tray. Does this play SACD and send raw DSD like #1? It says it plays high resolution audio from CDs and DVDs, but I haven’t seen it explicitly say that it plays SACD.
- Oldest - PerfectWave CD Transport (PST). This one has the touchscreen and no USB like #2. This does NOT play SACD. but will make redbook CDs sound great. This is a redbook player from what I’ve seen.
Is #2 or #3 the one that has the 30 second buffer?
This is what I’ve been able to gather. Any help would be appreciated.
