Snowmass DirectStream Sr. upgrade - Available in the Downloads Section


#1

Alright, we’ve gotten the bugs worked out of the PIC, FPGA 19 version of Snowmass is wooing us with its sweetness and openness and, well, I won’t wax too much here. Suffice it to say this is the single biggest upgrade to DirectStream in the 5 year history of the product. DSJ upgrade for Snowmass will follow shortly after we confirm everything’s good here.

I will forward the code to as many of the beta testers as possible before I have to scoot this evening.

Please post your impressions here.


The next DirectStream update?

Elegant and intimate sound. Subtle. I am very pleased.

Hi guys. I got my link to the firmware from paul. Much thanks. I am not able to get to my system at the moment to test it but in the meantime I have to ask, i have a dsj so is this firmware applicable to both the dsj and the ds? I would email Paul directly but I imagine he’s suffering an avalanche of emails atm!


#17

That’s exactly what it is. It’s like RedCloud on steroids.


#18

Exactly.

And not to say there is not energy, there is. But instead of hitting you on the head it glows from within.

I am listening to a massive Bach cantata. The music unrolls and presents itself. The depth is incredible.


#19

This is for DS Snr only. Juinor version will follow later.


#20

Yes! The detail is quite a bit more pronounced all while being elegant. It’s one of the things that makes the DS so special. 3d is spooky!


#21

I had a little trouble with the SD card not working.
Then I reloaded Torry. And then reinserted Snowmass and it now works fine.
First impression, much wider soundstage.

Agreed, wider - and for me even more exciting, deeper.


#23

I hear wider and deeper, especially deeper. I agree with elegant and intimate descriptors.

I think it bests my favorite HPQe filter. Awesome Ted!
