  • A purely passive output stage
  • Resolution perfect volume and balance controls
  • Simple, direct signal path with only one master clock
  • Immunity to jitter from sources
  • Asynchronous high-speed USB

DESIGN

DirectStream converts every input signal, both PCM and DSD, to a single-bit, high sample rate 20X DSD signal. The use of an FPGA rather than an off the shelf DAC chip provides immense processing power, resulting in a complete lack of digital glare, and allows the owner to download OS updates as they are released.

APPLICATION

DirectStream is the heart of a reference-quality digital audio-based system. It handles all PCM sources up to 352.8 kHz, and DSD 64 and 128 (USB and I2S) and DSD256 (I2S only, with the Sunlight OS). Its zero-loss digital volume control allows it to be used as a preamplifier, directly feeding a power amp. Include the Network Bridge to stream Qobuz, Tidal, and Spotify. Roon ready.
