PRICE DROP

I acquired this PWD fairly recently, privately in WA, as a Mark 1 version and have since upgraded it to a Mark 2.

I am guessing that anyone interested in this unit will already know all about the PS Audio PerfectWave DAC.

Furthermore, this unit can also be upgraded/converted into a PerfectStream configuration.

Since upgrading, I have had it working flawlessly through the Bridge Mark 1, via ethernet, streaming from my Mini Mac server, using JRiver app. 

I was very happy with the result and am only selling because I have (unexpectedly) just upgraded to very high end CD player, which has an equally high end, externally accessible DAC.

I do also have the remote control.

As per the pics, external appearance is very good, with no blemishes that I can see. So, fortunately or unfortunately, PWD no longer required.IMG_6972.thumb.jpg.f1e696ff7857e6c2a41d86732b2d1665.jpgIMG_6969.thumb.jpg.c136831fd065a64a642d21ed33d1c8a5.jpgIMG_6973.thumb.jpg.78a4e4899e9a5bf1f7656968f1649f16.jpgIMG_6972.thumb.jpg.f1e696ff7857e6c2a41d86732b2d1665.jpg, as I can now stream through the CD player DAC, thus simplifying the whole system..

Hi Snook,

 

I don't have any personal experience with what you are asking, however I have just cut and paste this from the PS Audio website:

 

The PWD and DirectStream DACs were designed to work either into a preamplifier or directly into a power amplifier. Using our PerfectWave DACs directly into the power amplifier is, for the most part, the best choice for sound quality because it bypasses the preamplifier’s added stage. One less stage to go through always gives you better sound quality.  There are circumstances where a preamplifier may be preferred for either sound quality reasons or connecting cable length issues.

A PerfectWave DAC is easily capable of driving a 3 to 4 meter interconnect but longer runs may be better when driven through a preamplifier.  This can be determined through listening tests.

 

Based on this, it seems as though it would probably do what you describe in your post. 

 

Here is a link to the full article: https://www.psaudio.com/ps_how/how-to-connect-a-perfectwave-dac-directly-to-your-amplifier-or-subwoofer/

 

You could also talk to the team at Magenta Audio (08) 8390 1673. They are the Australian distributors for PS Audio and have been pretty helpful to me, when I did the Mark 2 upgrade.

 

If anyone else reads this post and can offer more definitive comments, please chime in?

 

Regards

Bruce

Sorry, I didn't answer the volume control question, yes you can control the volume from the PWD.
