”…a combination of the advances made in PS Audio’s PerfectWave Transport and the DirectStream DAC have convinced me that keeping your physical-media digital recordings can be as rewarding as keeping your LPs.” ’The Absolute Sound’ – 2021 Golden Ear Award.

Revolutionary tech

It may be about to enter its fourth decade, but advances in CD technology are still ongoing – at least with PS Audio they are. In a world first, the PerfectWave Transport uses a galvanically isolated output stage. This means that all that stands between the drive mechanism and digital lens is a pulse of energy. This unique (lack of) connection eliminates noise or ground contamination.

Delivers reference quality sound
The upshot of this unique tech is a level of detail, openness and realism that’s astonishing for a CD player. The inky dark background lets even the most subtle musical detail appear from apparently nowhere.

Plays SACDs
To move the game on further, try the PerfectWave Transport with Hi-Res SACD discs. These Direct Stream Digital (DSD) discs offer far higher resolution than ordinary CDs and are similar in resolution to 24-bit music files. The result is a more natural sound, revealing subtle detail and texture in the music.

I2S output for the highest quality sound
Connect to a PS Audio DAC via I2S (HDMI) and you’ll get even better sound quality from your SACDs. Once connected via I2S, once restricted layers of DSD data is supplied directly to your DAC. This means that, for the first time, you get to hear the exact detail that the master engineers have enjoyed all along.

Wide range of other outputs
In addition to the I2S output, there are a wide range of other digital outputs. These include balanced XLR and BNC coaxial, making the PerfectWave SACD Transport widely compatible with a vast range of DACs and digital amps.

The perfect partner for the DirectStream DAC
As well as making the perfect aesthetic match, the PerfectWave and DirectStream DAC make the ideal sonic match. Developed together, their sound quality complements one another, delivering astonishing dynamics, imaging and realism. Link via the I2S connection and it just gets better.

Get the best possible sound from your digital discs, with the PS Audio PerfectWave SACD Transport.
