I love PS Audio and I think they are an excellent company. It says all sales are final for used products and if it's DOA they appear to pay for repairs and may or may not offer a refund. You must log in or register to reply here. Yes, the method used to create analog sound from digital code does have a distinct effect on sound quality, but the analog output is the final step and the quality of it trumps all others. I'm going to be patient because it will be worth it in the long run. Are all the reviewers paid to write a bunch of exaggeration and fluff? "When a PCM file is played on a DSD or Bit Stream converter, the DAC chip has to convert the PCM to DSD in real time. If you are not going to be patient and think the DAC you have sounds identical, you are just wastin your money and our time. I don't know if their dac is better, but honestly who cares when a company is THIS bad. © 2001-2020 Head-Fi.org. Last week I found a great used price on a mint Metrum Pavane L1 and snapped it up. I don't trust buying used. With these differences, I found that DirectStream made it somewhat easier to place instruments and vocals within the sound field. It's the perfect companion for Yggdrasil, as it's designed to look and sound great paired with it.

Both units have very enthusiastic owners. I can't really play music on it 24/7 because the only way I can think to do that is by running internet radio. It's a beautiful, well built dac and I really love how it looks. Even harder are comparisons to the Auralic Vega which I almost picked up over the Yggdrasil. I just recently sold my DAC Magic Plus....nice device. There's no end to the madness... Give yourself a week or so of getting used to the DS. The firmware had been updated multiple times after the review. Needless to say, I'm furious! Other than those differences, though, they sound the same. The nice thing with PS Audio is that you can home trial first, then if you like it, trade in some old gear and get credit towards your purchase. Have been ignoring everything being posted here??? lol How could Schiit be doing this to their customers??? Nothing wrong with it and Onkyo makes a good product, but it will be a bottleneck in the system with a source component like the DS. Audio Research recommends 400 hours of break in time per input on the DAC 8, so I'm not sure if that's true. What does it matter if you had the best theoretical method to convert digital to analog if the output hardware ruins the integrity of the signal? What a wonderful company!

Give it few days to be sure. And best of all, they are shipping it out today. To the guys who requested a copy of Ted Smith's email I'm really sorry but I deleted it. It was an eye opening experience to perform a direct A/B comparison between a $20K Esoteric component and a $2.4K Schiit Audio component, discovering how close the performance of … EVERYONE agreed that the Directstream sounds identical to the Dacmagic except that the Dacmagic is louder they all said. The Blue Coast Records label places an emphasis not just on great acoustic music but also sound quality. Switching gears away from acoustic music, I wanted to see how this DAC fared with electronic dance music. Leave in on playing music to your AVR, or preamp. Is that some kind of difference between Hi Resolution and Low? Combined with their transport, incredible reproduction! First, that is with the old version of Yggdrasil and the new one measures better. I have no idea what is wrong. Like I said previously, no other company is having this problem that I've looked into. There's nothing that indicates that PS Audio won't be able to keep the current DS DAC up to date for years to come. Is the difference between it and the Yggy really THAT big? Yggdrasil is a GREAT DAC!!! Hopefully my experience can help others out there.

Before I bought the Directstream this week my old dac is a Cambridge Audio Dacmagic Plus. House track that I've recently been playing on repeat. $2400 vs. $850 I have heard some great reviews on the Yggdrasil, but the Gungnir doesn't catch as many eyes.
