Torreys Final Upgrade

Transform your DirectStream DAC with the latest

Built in Boulder

Since its introduction almost 2 years ago, the DirectStream DAC, and now DirectStream Junior, have altered the expectations of audiophiles worldwide, and proven its ability to be upgraded in the field at no cost to its owner–obsolescence is obsolete. The Torreys operating system upgrade provides further reductions of jitter sensitivity and added proprietary resource management within the FPGA. The sound quality of Torreys is the best in a continuing assault on the state of the art in digital audio—as well DACs with Bridge II can now be Roon Ready. The upgrade is free via download and self installation or by purchasing this pre-formatted SD card, or USB memory stick (DSJ only) delivered to you ready to install. Instructions for the upgrade are here.
