|Reviewer John Darko is salivating over Huron, the free upgrade for DirectStream and DirectStream Junior DACs.
"..it’s the magnitude of this upgrade that has caught me by surprise. Huron is not so much a nip/tuck release as a complete blood transfusion."
DS designer Ted Smith has knocked it out of the park again, doubling the upsample rate, reducing noise by an astounding 18dB and lowering jitter yet again. Huron, the free upgrade, gives DS owners a new DAC to enjoy and rediscover their digital music collections anew.
And while DS owners are celebrating their new kit we sent them for free, DMP owners have discovered that their physical media—particularly Red Book CD—sounds markedly better than any other source they have. Period.
The Memory Player gives you what you've never had with SACD—access to the DSD layer through our DAC—but more important, DMP is the best sounding source of digital audio music in the world today, at any price. I know that's a bold claim, but I do not say it lightly. One listen to your CD collection through DMP and you too will understand the magnitude of what I refer to.
If you've not had the chance to own this pair of DAC and Memory Player, we've got a means to do so that makes it easy. Now through July, the combo of DS and DMP are on sale. You can go here to see what I mean. It's a wonderful opportunity to own the finest pair of digital audio products this company has ever built.
