FOR SALE: PS Audio DirectStream DAC
Selling my fantastic PS Audio DirectStream DAC (no Bridge). The DAC is in as new condition and has latest updates installed (Snowmass).
In fact, since I live just a few miles from PS Audio, it just came back from a one year check-up so you can be assured that it is in perfect working order. Also, the DAC has never been shipped so when it was new it came from the factory floor directly to my listening space.
I am the original owner and have all the original packaging materials, manual, and remote.
Thanks for looking!
