Audiophilia Bridge II

Karl Sigman

…in the end, ethernet sound quality won me over — whether it be via a 3 feet long cable or 50 feet. And although the Bridge II’s price of $899 might seem steep to some, don’t forget that it is essentially doing, among other things, much of the magic and work that a very high-end music server (costing thousands of dollars) does — and it only weighs a couple of ounces. Quite something–squared. Highly recommended.

Audiophilia Bridge I

By Karl Sigman, July 18 UPDATE!

We are proud to award the PS Audio PerfectWave Network Bridge an Audiophilia Star Component Award. Congratulations!

Since I awarded the PS Audio MKII DAC an Audiophilia Star, I feel it is imperative to award one to the Bridge, too. The MKII allowed me to rid my system of a $4,000 preamplifier and get better sound. The bridge allows me to rid my system of $400+ USB cables and replace them with $5 ethernet cables and get better sound. Now, that's progress.

Home Theater Review

By: Brian Kahn, July 15, 2013

"I found the Bridge to provide the best sound, - The inputs are all asynchronous, with the network input accepting up to 192 kHz/32-bit data and the USB accepting up to 192 kHz/24-bit signals. This should allow users to play just about any high-resolution audio file. Most types of audio file will work, including FLAC, WAV, AIFF, ALAC and many more."

6 Moons

By John Darko, December 2011

"The PWD sounds more engaging, more wholesome when fed ones and zeroes via the Network Bridge (and presumably PWT) than it does as standalone DAC"

The PerfectWave Network Bridge slides easily into the rear of a PerfectWave or DirectStream DAC and is ready to stream over your network almost immediately. Cover art, song titles, great sound all from this unique network device.
