PS Audio Direct Stream DAC

$8,395.00$9,860.00 inc. GST



The PS Audio Direct Stream DAC is a high-quality digital preamplifier, digital to analogue converter and with the addition of the “Bridge2” card becomes a music streamer and ROON endpoint. If you are seeking a high CD playback medium the Direct Stream DAC + Direct Stream Memory Player combination is worth an audition!

PS Audio Direct Stream DAC Key Features;

  • Pure 100% single bit DSD based D to A Converter
  • 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
  • Polarity inversion feature
  • Play directly into your power amplifier or preamplifier


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.


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.
