I was logging into my psaudio account to deregister my DSD Sr. When I decided to leave this note.
After about 1,5 year, I am moving on. I was introduced to the dCS Vivaldi stack, and while the sr. did fight back, it was an unfair joust, specially when you consider the effects of the upsampler+clock. The dCS just feels… right.
But this note is not about the dCS, but about the sr. I am already feeling nostalgic. And that’s because the sr. was my first PSAudio, and introduced me to the digital hi-fi world that I never thought existed. Ted and his releases are magical.
But, most of all, I’ve grown accustomed to the PSAudio family. Paul and his tales. Ted, Jamesh, the users that post here, and all the support I have received throughout. All so kind and willingly to help. This company is something special, struggling to keep costs at bay, and, at the same time, delivering spectacular sounding products. So, swapping the Sr. For the dCS feels to me the same as I felt when I left home to go to college.
I sincerely hope this spirit and philosophy stay the same.
I am still a vested PSAudio user: 1xP10, 1xP20, 1x DSD jr and 1 pair of BHK300.
