Pure DSD done right

Introducing DirectStream Junior (DSJ), a world class DAC based on the
architecture of the Stereophile and Absolute Sound’s Product Of The
Year, DirectStream.

DSJ uses the same FPGA architecture and customized code as PS Audio’s
DirectStream DAC, and it is designed and built by the exact same team.
The idea behind the DSJ was to offer near-identical performance at a
fraction of the cost. How was this accomplished? Lower cost chassis and
user interface.

DSJ, like DirectStream, is hand-written, discrete, perfection based
conversion that uncovers all the missing information hiding in your
digital audio media for all these years. CD’s, downloads,
high-resolution PCM or DSD based media are expertly upsampled in the DSJ
to ten times DSD rate and output as pure analog directly into your
amplifier or preamplifier. Classic PCM-based DACS, including many of
today’s DACS that can also process DSD, tend to cover up some of the
subtle musical details buried deep within digital audio music; a problem
inherent in their architecture. DSJ solves this problem by employing a
pure DSD single-bit approach for both PCM as well as DSD media. This
means that your entire library of music can finally reveal all the music
and subtle low level details buried deep within its core – and now, at a
more affordable price than its progenitor, DirectStream.

Imagine going to a recording studio
and listening to a master tape of any recording made. This is the
experience DSJ affords its owners who enjoy a renewed sense of enjoyment
and discovery when listening to everything in their library: CD’s,
downloads, DSD.
