PerfectWave SACD

Wave perfectly – PS Audio's new SACD transport [$6'499] promises to do so for SACD, CD and DVD in all their fixed, recordable and rewritable media versions. The PTS will even play an SACD's raw DSD layer and pipe it to the matching PS Audio DAC via I²S over HDMI. It will also output MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, FLAC, AIFF and ALAC files played to its USB port. The internal signal path of the PerfectWave SACD transport includes the firm's Digital Lens, a combination of memory buffer and FPGA-based signal processing. For socketry there's I²S/HDMI, coax, BNC and dual AES/EBU. RJ45 and WiFi ports support future firmware updates.
