On website it says "Once the PWD’s insides have been removed and replace with the DirectStream kit, your PerfectWave DAC will be nearly identical to a new DirectStream"
Just curious on why it says “nearly” if everything is same, it sound sound same right?
Sorry i am not trying to be smart A** just wanted to make sure i wont have regrets later.
The sound should be the same. As mentioned one difference will be that the display is a little used but functionally identical. The other physical difference is that a new DirectStream has a better IR receiver (it works reliably over a longer distance.) Then tiny things like the silkscreened DirectStream…
