Have not had my PWD II all that long and find it hard to drop another 4g on another DAC; At least not right away. How long will this trade-in be offered?
I’m a brick N’ mortar kind of guy, but ( and this is a shock ) I can’t find a dealer in Chicago land that stocks PS stuff; Music Direct doesn’t count as they are a warehouse. I did buy the PWD Ii from Audio Consultants ( they don’t stock ), so that was sight unseen and ears unheard. Something I don’t normally do. It worked out well, but the fact that their profit margin may have been compromised bothers me a bit. So dealing with them to do this trade is probably not an option.
That narrows it down to ordering from Bolder and sending the PWD back, something new to me. Does PS specify shipping procedures? Is insurance required? Etc. I’m sure these are simple questions, but this is a guy who has never sent a box of anything to anywhere let alone something of the value of the PWD.
Also, twist my arm by telling me this DAC will get those massed violins to sweeten up.
PS ( not PS Audio, the other PS )
When you listened to the first 100 did you first run them in a bit?
