In any event, a few months ago, I started to hear about the PS Audio DirectStream DAC. Three weeks ago, I added the DirectStream to my setup. Guess what, the missing bass is now here but so is a whole lot more here. I’m not imagining it, my wife hears it as does my daughter. The difference is objectively clear.
I love my DirectStream. Make sure you are running the latest firmware (Snowmass).
