    I think a lot of audiophiles are interested in hearing more about the new PS Audio DAC.

      I have the Jr. which lists for $4000 vs $6000 and has the network bridge built in. It has the same FPGA and according to PS Audio offers about 85% of the sonic qualities of the big brother.

          Very well. They have about 300 hours on them now and they sound fantastic! I am now amp hunting for an appropriate Solid State amp.

          No, this was from DSD64 files from Superhirez.com. I think I was playing Sting's Sacred Love album running through Roon via the MacMini.

          Oh, the sacd player was on and running and I thought maybe the DAC was doing some weird conversion of a SACD disc

        The joy of choices! Gee, should I listen to Hi rez files or an SACD?
