    Finally Hear SACD
    For a long time, the protected DSD layer of SACD has only been available through D/A converters built in to players and a few receivers and surround processors. These internal D/A processors were never capable of playing back stored music at the quality and performance levels enjoyed by mastering engineers.

    After eight years of research and two years of development, PS engineering has been able to shorten the memory requirements and improve the timing of digital audio data. The new Lens takes advantage of advances in semiconductor architecture, found in FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Array). Using a single large scale integrated FPGA, PS chief DMP architect, Bob Stadtherr, devised a segmented structure including intelligent RAM, two-way isolated communication with the drive, and near-field output latches controlled by an ultra-low jitter fixed clock. The results are extraordinary.

    The DirectStream Memory Player has been a work of passion at PS Audio; a quest for perfection in musical excellence. The instrument is assembled, programmed and tested at PS Audio's production facility in Boulder Colorado by skilled craftspeople. There is a measure of pride of workmanship that goes into every one of these products and it shows from the moment you open the unit up and plug it in.
