As good as the PS Audio Directstream DAC is I would like to share and find out more from other owners about their relative experiences about any thing and everything using the DS to enable us all to further enhance our listening pleasures. My main connection is from a NAS via Ethernet on my network. It is simple to use and the results are impressive. Occasionally I connect via SPDIF from a Jlti modified OPPO 105 Player. I prefer the NAS as it is simple and I think that the SQ is probably better than a disc in the OPPO.
I now would like to take my listening to another level if that is possible. When I had a PWD I trialled a Bryston streamer. It was a bit clunky to operate, it only had an I app but I could hear the SQ benefit. I am now interested in exploring other servers and streamers. I think that I understand the difference. I know that there are considerable price variations. Some are definitely out of my price range. The two that have gained my attention at the moment are the Antipodes servers and the Auralic Aries streamer. One would have the files on board and the other will take the files from elsewhere. I understand the price differential between the two products but the fundamental aspect for me is the final SQ result.
Has anybody used either of the Antipodes Servers or the Auralic Aries with the PS Audio Directstream and is able to offer any comments or advice? Or better still can anybody comment on a comparison between the two feeding a DS?
