DirectStream Junior DAC - A pure DSD approach to digital audio playback

DirectStream Junior is a more-affordable version of the remarkable DirectStream DAC, whose architecture has been awarded Product of the Year in both Stereophile and TAS, Darko Knock-Out award, Editors’ Choice and Golden Ear awards. DirectStream Junior, like its progenitor, is a handwritten, discrete, digital to analog converter that uncovers all the missing information hiding in your audio library. CD’s, high-resolution PCM- or DSD-based media are expertly upsampled in DirectStream Junior to ten times DSD rate and output as pure analog directly into your amplifier or preamplifier.

Whatever the format, whatever the sample rate, DirectStream Junior provides a pure DSD based solution that fulfills the promise of high-resolution analog performance from digital audio. If you know the sound of music and instruments, and want to hear what’s been missing on your discs, then this DAC is right for you.

While DirectStream Junior does not share DirectStream’s touch screen, larger power supply, or taller chassis, it does share remarkable performance uncovering all that buried treasure in your digital music collection. Connect DirectStream Junior to your NAS, computer, or favorite internet streaming station through its built in Bridge II, I²S through an HDMI cable to the PWT (or upcoming DirectStream Transport playing your favorite SACD), or any digital output source, and sit back and relive musical performances few have enjoyed at this price.

Introducing DirectStream Junior, a world class DAC based on the architecture of the Stereophile and Absolute Sound’s Product Of The Year, DirectStream. Hand-written, discrete, perfection based conversion that uncovers all the missing information hiding in your digital audio media for all these years. CD’s, downloads, high-resolution PCM or DSD based media are expertly upsampled in the DirectStream Junior to ten times DSD rate and output as pure analog directly into your amplifier or preamplifier. Classic PCM-based DACS, including many of today’s DACS that can also process DSD, tend to cover up some of the subtle musical details buried deep within digital audio music; a problem inherent in their architecture. DirectStream Junior solves this problem by employing a pure DSD single-bit approach for both PCM as well as DSD media. This means that your entire library of music can finally reveal all the music and subtle low level details buried deep within its core – and now, at a more affordable price than its progenitor, DirectStream.

Imagine going to a recording studio and listening to a master tape of any recording made. This is the experience DirectStream Junior affords its owners who enjoy a renewed sense of enjoyment and discovery when listening to everything in their library: CD’s, downloads, DSD.

Resolution perfect volume and balance controls

By using a 100% bit-perfect volume and balance control that’s built into DirectStream Junior, this enables users to control the output level when feeding directly into a power amplifier or preamplifier. That the volume control is completely bit-perfect means there is no loss of resolution for any volume setting, a feature unique amongst the majority of DACS in the world today. The ability to eliminate the preamplifier in the system without any resolution loss is a major benefit to DirectStream Junior’s outstanding musical performance.
