DSD done right
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.
DirectStream solves this problem by employing a pure DSD single-bit approach whichmeans your entire library of music can finally reveal what’s buried deep within its core.
Imagine going to a recording studio and listening to a master tape of any recording made. This is the experience DirectStream provides its owners who enjoy a renewed sense of enjoyment and discovery when listening to everything in their library: CD’s, downloads, DSD.
It’s entirely possible whatever DAC you are currently listening to is covering up those details that DirectStream brings out.

You may find yourself scratching your head a bit, but you’ll take away a great deal of understanding, along with the 4,000 others that have learned something about digital audio.
Ted’s a brilliant designer and a great speaker, fun to watch.
