Manufacturer Details

PS Audio - NuWave DSD - - - - We've taken the lessons learned from one of the world's best DACs, and applied them to a smaller-scale, lower-cost unit. The NuWave DSD accepts PCM and DSD digital audio up to 192kHz/24 bit from any digital source, to produce a seamless 3D soundstage hand-tuned and personally voiced by Paul McGowan. Transform your expectations of what's possible. - - - - The NuWave DSD accepts inputs from any digital source including 12S, coax, TOSLINK and USB from your computer and connects to your systems's preamplifier with either single-ended (RCA) or balanced (XLR) connections. Used with music server software like JRiver, Bit Perfect, Amarra or Pure Music and an iPhone or Android app, the NuWave DSD is your entry into the world of high-end, PCM and DSD digital audio music. - - - - All input signals are taken in Native Mode, without Sample Rate Conversion (SRC) and fed directly into a simplified FPGA known as a CPLD (Complex Programmable Logic Device), which discovers sample rate and format, reclocks all incoming data, reduces jitter, waveshapes data output to the DAC chip, and utilizes high speed/low gate count logic to reduce propogation delay for faster throughput, and a sweet, open sound. - - - - The DAC chip in the NuWave DSD is the 32-bit ESS Sabre Hyperstream, which uses a passive filter to reduce transient distortion. Power supply includes a analog transformer, 7 regulators, properly-bypassed high-speed switching diodes, and 15,000 mFd of storage capacitance. Output stage is a unique Class-A configuration, fully balanced and direct coupled hybrid array (utilizing both discrete semiconductors and ICs), with an extended bandwidth of -3dB at 60 kHz. - - - - Built as solid as it gets, the NuWave DSD is one great and affordable Digital to Analog converter. Handcrafted, programmed and tested in Boulder, Colorado with pride and workmanship that shows from the moment you open the unit up and plug it in.
