New, Used and Demos available!! Mint customer trade-in PS Audio DS DAC black Excellent condition, original packaging and all accessories. NEW DEMO AND TRADE-IN AVAILABLE INQUIRY FOR GREAT PRICE!Pure DSD done rightIntroducing DirectStream, one of the most remarkable DACS ever built. 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 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 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. Imagine going to a recording studio and listening to a master tape of any recording made. This is the experience DirectStream provides its owners who enjoy a renewed sense of enjoyment and discovery when listening to everything in their library: CD’s, downloads, DSD. Pure 100% single bit DSD based D to A ConverterMost of today’s sophisticated DACs are IC based instruments using off-the-shelf-chips that are Multi-bit Sigma Delta based designs. While these are relatively simple to design and produce, they don’t often give the best results sonically. Because they are one-chip systems compromises are made in their architecture that found in DirectStream’s custom based architecture. DirectStream takes both PCM and DSD, upsamples the data and converts to single-bit DSD and then outputs pure music regardless of input format for the data. The results of this design can be heard in increased musical information presented to the listener at every opportunity.Purely passive output stageMost modern DACs use some form of active tube or solid state output stage to amplify, filter and drive the DACs output. DirectStream takes a different approach: passive. In one of the simplest, elegant and musically correct executions of an output stage, high speed class A video amplifiers are used as the final switch for the single-bit, double DSD output of DirectStream; feeding a high performance passive audio output transformer. The transformer is specially designed to act as both the galvanic isolation between the DAC and the outside world as well as the primary low pass filter required to present a perfect, low distortion, low noise output signal. When you listen to DirectStream you never are accosted by added bright, hard glare in the music as happens with many active designs. Instead, clean, pure music flows from the DirectStream directly to your preamplifier or power amplifier.Resolution perfect volume and balance controlsDesigner Smith perfected a 100% bit-perfect volume and balance control that’s built into DirectStream, enabling 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’s outstanding musical performance.Simple, direct signal path with only one master clockTypical high-end DAC designs use more than one master clock as you can see in the drawing we provided in the Overview page. There are often separate clocks for USB, Audio and others, causing major headaches for system designers trying to synchronize the clocks. DirectStream obviates the problem by basing the entire design on one master clock of extraordinary high quality. Used is a low phase noise, low jitter clock designed for DirectStream by Crystek. Using this advanced approach the need for synchronization is eliminated, jitter levels are reduced and music is delivered with a clarity rarely heard.Immunity to jitter from sourcesSources have always had a major impact on sound quality with DACS. Transports, computers, CD players, cables all make a significant impact on performance into a typical DAC. This problem has been significantly reduced with DirectStream. Now, for perhaps the first time, sources of just about any quality and jitter level sound nearly identical. For example, you can take a cheap $30 DVD or CD player’s digital output, connect with DirectStream and have sound quality unthinkable for such a poor source. Performance levels no longer are dependent on the quality of source or connections; certainly not to the degree they have been in the past. Yes, cables and sources still make a difference, but with DirectStream that difference is reduced to nearly background noise. Whatever you use to play or stream your music now sounds as good as it gets.Asynchronous high speed USBDirectStream can match up to either a computer or a home network. If a network connection is desired, there’s is the optional Network Bridge available that slides right into the rear panel of DirectStream and adds an additional input. You can also connect directly to your computer via USB. USB communication, if handled properly, can have every sound quality advantage of a dedicated CD transport or Network Bridge. DirectStream provides a fully synchronous 24 bit 192kHz path for USB based audio. Using a good quality USB cable between DirectStream and your computer, like a quiet MAC Mini, provides an instant media server that can be controlled through any number of handheld devices like an iPod, iPhone or Android using a 3d party controller program. Your music can be managed by iTunes, Bit Perfect, Pure Music or Ammara for ease of use.Polarity inversionA handy feature on DirectStream is the polarity (phase) control. This touch screen option (available on the remote as well) allows users to select normal or inverted phase for every input and for every performance. Sources and music have no standard for absolute polarity, a fact easily demonstrated by switching polarities on the as the music plays. Many Audiophiles mark their discs in phase and out of phase and are very careful to select the proper phase before playing each disc. Some CD players and sources themselves invert phase so that a disc you believe is inverted actually is correct played on a specific device and incorrect on yet another. To fix this problem you can assign each input on DirectStream to switch to the proper polarity when you activate that input. Touching this control is the same thing as reversing the loudspeaker connections of both loudspeakers (+ to -) at either the amplifier or speakers. All live acoustic music is in absolute phase but some recordings may accidentally be made inverted and should sound more realistic and pleasant when you correct their phase with the switch.Play directly into your power amplifier or preamplifierDirectStream offers the ability to play directly into either your preamplifier or power amplifier through either its balanced or single ended outputs. You can select the optimum gain setting through DirectStream’s setup menu to match your amplifier and loudspeaker’s sensitivity. If you choose to go through a preamplifier, it’s easy to set DirectStream at maximum level (or any level you wish) to match the preamp’s gain. But should you choose to eliminate the extra electronics of the preamplifier, DirectStream is more than capable of driving the power amplifier directly. DirectStream’s unique zero-loss volume control maintains full resolution bit-perfect performance at any volume setting from the lowest to the highest levels.Hear more than you ever imagined from CDsDirectStream converts everything to DSD, even PCM before delivering the music to your system. This approach, coupled with careful design, low jitter and a simple and direct signal path has the benefit of uncovering details buried in the music you may not have realized are even there. CDs come alive with subtle details that were never apparent with your older DAC; details you never knew even existed. CDs sound more like high resolution audio than you ever imagined, closing the gap between higher resolution PCM and DSD copies. No longer do you need to consider replacing your current CD library because once you hear what’s truly on your discs, you may not need to consider upgrading to a higher resolution copy at all. Yes, it is that obvious and significant.

Testimonials "The NuPrime IDA-16 Integrated Amplifier is an exemplary integrated amp-DAC with rock-solid imaging, transparent sound, and tight control of bass. It doesn’t impose a sonic signature on the sound -- I was enthralled with every recording I played through it. There are similarly priced integrated-DACs out there, from Bel Canto and Wyred 4 Sound, among others, but none offers the IDA-16’s power or support of native DSD. I highly recommend that you give the NuPrime IDA-16 a listen if you’re in the market for a modern integrated-DAC." - Vince Hanada, soundstagenetwork.com (read the review) "The NuPrime IDA 16 Integrated Amplifier delivers more sound quality, power and sophistication than any other DAC and amplifier combination, digital or analogue we've heard regardless of cost. This isn't a statement we make without a lot of consideration and listening. NuPrime has delivered a remarkable product at a better-than-fair price that you'll be thrilled to own, both now and for years to come." - Totallywired.com (read the review) Overview The NuPrime IDA 16 Integrated Amplifier A World-First in Digital Integrated Amplifier Design for the Ultimate in High-Resolution Sound Following in a long tradition of world-renown audio excellence, the NuPrime IDA 16 Integrated Amplifier combines leading-edge audio technology with unprecedented innovation, style, and value. As the world's first fully integrated digital amplifier offering 384K & DSD decoding (2.8MHz, 5.6MHz, 11.2MHz), from its digital or analog inputs to its 200-Watts/Channel speaker outputs it delivers the purest, most natural sound modern audio technology can provide, while also providing the widest support for the latest High-Resolution music formats. Starting with complete integration of all necessary stages within one chassis, the design inherently ensures the shortest possible signal path, which thereby results in vanishing levels of noise and distortion to create a jet-black backdrop upon which your recordings literally unfold before your ears. Such deafening silence is further augmented by the NuPrime IDA 16's Integrated Amplifier's innovative volume control; a feature based upon advanced, thin-film switched-resistor technology that places only a single resistor in the signal path at any volume setting. Volume adjustment is conveniently achieved in 99 precise, 0.5dB increments and is further complimented by providing individually adjustable volume for each input. Precise level matching of your various sources becomes a breeze and makes comparison between them equally so. The NuPrime amp circuit improves on the class-D amp by using a “self-oscillating circuit to generate pulse width modulation.” The amplifier switches on and off at a frequency of 600kHz, well beyond the 44.1kHz sampling rate of CD. Most class-D amps switch at 300kHz or lower. Completing the ensemble is NuPrime's proprietary variable frequency Switch-Mode Power Supply (SMPS) technology. For thundering, authoritative bass performance, the IDA-16's innovative supply and its Cross-Matrix Array (CMA) capacitor bank are capable - upon demand - of delivering extremely high current to the amplifier's output stages. The result is unprecedented transient speed and an almost shocking level of dynamic impact that renders percussive instruments as though they were suddenly attacking outward from beyond the blackest depths of a phantom stage. Such highly responsive behavior achieves extremely low Total Harmonic Distortion + Noise (THD+N) levels of less than 0.004% while attaining a maximum system efficiency of up to 93%. Adding the IDA-16's stratospheric frequency response up to 80 kHz, and now mere vocals are transformed nigh unto emotional experiences while the upper registers of instruments become the shimmering highlights of a live performance. In all, its crystalline transparency, holographic imaging and fatigue-free sound will allow you to finally relax and experience the music as it was meant to be… while almost forgetting the IDA-16 is even there. Although, when the music stops and the lights are on you definitely won't forget. Rather, you'll be quite proud to showcase the IDA-16 in a place of prominence within your room as its sleek, low profile chassis and understated elegance are sure to draw the attention of your most discriminating guests. Whether your preference is Black or Silver finish, the IDA-16's simple, modern style is certain to find broad approval as it politely augments any decor. As you continue to review below, you will see that the NuPrime IDA 16 Integrated Amplifier's many innovative features and exemplary specifications are truly impressive and have few equals. More importantly though, just one listen and you are certain to discover the IDA-16 to be a true hallmark of audio performance by elevating music playback and visual style to a level seldom experienced at any price.

IT’S A PRECISION INSTRUMENT**Price shown is for a 1.0m Statement I featuring Furutech’s Pure Transmission Technology FI-50(R) Piezo Ceramic Series Connectors** Statement I and II power cords have been designed exclusively for Audio Art Cable with one purpose in mind: maximizing the performance potential of the finest audio components and video displays available today. The all new Statement Series power cable consists of three 10 awg conductors, with 1,386 individual strands of exceptionally pure, silver-coated OFC copper. These ultra high performance conductors are arrayed in a super low inductance, double-shielded construction, providing total immunity to noise, both low and high frequency alike. Encasing the conductors is a co-polymer dialectic that reduces incoming differential-mode noise. This type of noise enters a power cord through the power line, and can originate from the electric company’s power station, or even from your neighbor’s air-conditioner, microwave, or refrigerator. Over the dialectic are two shields that reduce external noise. Noise of this variety includes airborne interference radio frequency (RFI) which gets radiated into power cords from, for example, other cables that sit close by. The first shield consists of a dense braid of tin and copper. The second shield consists of a layer of conductive foil and a drain wire. Over the outer shield rests a binder wrap that’s followed by the Statement’s PVC outer, and a distinctive Carbon TechFlex jacket. The Statement power cable is built to deliver instantaneous current on demand, with absolutely no time domain hesitation, satisfying the demands of the very finest high-end audio components and high-performance video displays.> The foundation of any high performance audio or home theater system is the power delivered to it. We consider the Audio Art Statement Power Cable to offer the most important and most discernible improvement that can be made to your power delivery system. Of course, a premier power cable demands the inclusion of the very best high-performance audio AC plugs the market has to offer. We offer this new power cable with two different custom terminations. Our flagship Statement I option is terminated with Furutech’s top of the line FI-50(R), a Piezo Ceramic Series IEC Connector, featuring nonmagnetic Rhodium-Plated Conductors. Furutech’s Pure Transmission FI-50 Piezo Ceramic series connector bodies and housings feature several breakthrough construction techniques. A multilayer nonmagnetic stainless steel and carbon fiber shell incorporates a special damping and insulating acetal copolymer. Furutech settled on stainless and carbon fiber for the outer housing after extensive listening sessions with Japanese industry figures and audiophiles. The body of the connectors combines two “active” materials: Nano-sized ceramic particles and powdered carbon. (Only nano-sized ceramic particles effectively couples with carbon powder.) Nylon and fiberglass are incorporated as well forming an extremely effective, well damped, mechanically and electrically nonresonant connector body. That’s correct, they’re electrically damped as well. Piezoelectric effects are the key. Furutech’s breakthrough in design and materials is based on employing nano-sized polycrystalline ferroelectric ceramic particles exhibiting electro-generative properties; mechanical pressure creates an electrical charge forming a bridge between electrical and mechanical oscillation.Carbon powder exhibits thermal-conductive characteristics that interact with the charged ferro-ceramic particles converting their energy into heat that’s conducted away and released from the surface of the connector body!These carefully chosen and tested “active” materials mechanically and electrically damp the connector and receptacle as they “interconvert” thermal, mechanical, and electrical energy for the finest Furutech Pure Transmission signal imaginable.

VALVET A4 - Pure Class-A mono blocks - NEW! Hand-made ...
We’re glad to announce the new pure Class-A VALVET A4 mono-bocks, handmade by Knut Cornils in Germany. The VALVET A4 mono-blocks are the successors of the award-winning VALVET A3.5 mono-blocks and currently the most potent power amplifiers in Valvet’s line-up. Factory lead time is currently 3-4 weeks. So please put your order in soon. Again, long term satisfaction, real value and reliability are key values. Those who own these power amplifiers can put any worries about amplification to one side for a very long time! What the A4 conveys in terms of musical information is simply breathtaking! We encourage you to compare them to the top brands and then decide which delivery gives you the greater pleasure. The A4 amplifiers are extremely quick, controlled and powerful. They don’t force themselves onto the music, but rather support its flow and the listener’s involvement. The A4 mono-blocks deliver an output of more than 90 watts per channel into 4 ohms (55 watts into 8 ohms). This is a very conservative measurement, as with all VALVET amplifiers. We believe that you will not feel the need for more power for a long time. The A4 power amplifiers, in common with all other VALVET amplifiers, have an extremely stable power supply which gives them an excellent ability to deliver current, thus keeping even the most difficult speakers on the market on a tight leash. The A4 mono-blocks operate in Push-Pull pure Class A mode with just a single pair of transistors in the output stage. We believe that the common practice to employ several transistors in parallel required to produce a higher output is detrimental to the sound quality. A 300 VA toroidal transformer, 8 ultrafast 15A rectifier diodes plus more than 130.000 µF of filter capacitors (Mundorf’s Finest) per channel guarantee excellent performance. No capacitor in the pure silver wired signal path. "JUST PURE MUSIC!" The predecessor, the Valvet A3.5 monos (and the Valvet soulshine pre-amp) was StereoTimes’ Most Wanted Component Award winner 2009. Robert Learner of PFO wrote: "...smooth, dynamic, lively, and organic. Tonal purity suggests straight-wire gain with a dash of inner glow. Soundstaging is precise in localization... Transients have snap and life, and decays are full-blooded, something I’ve come to associate with Class A electronics versus some other designs. There is none of the sterility I’ve heard with some other solid-state amps... haven’t heard better for the money and certainly worse for more. These components have some magic, something past competence or even excellence and into the illusion of ’real’. You can find components that do this or that better in the price range, but none I’ve spent time with are as addictive. They get the essence of the music... The sound quality is not only that good, it’s that true—park them on your rack for the next ten years and find other things to worry about." Key Kim of StereoTimes wrote: "...from the very first notes on the very first album, it was obvious that the Valvet combo was something special. In our age of hyper-priced imported components, it’s not just good sounding (even at just over $11k) The Valvet components are the real deal regardless of price.... They are giant-killers in that they provide the ultimate musical bliss without breaking one’s bank account. If you’re looking for that really great sounding system that isn’t stratospherically priced, then look no further than Valvet..."

I don’t know if I had mentioned to you that I own a Pass Labs XA30.5 stereo amplifier, but that is what I compare amplifiers against, and I can confidently state that Valvet has the better amplifier...I compared back and forth between the Pass Labs unit and the Valvet A3.5 mono-blocks using the same sources, same preamp (my Valvet), even the same cabling, and time after time I selected the Valvets as having the better sound, staging, bass attack, and highs...Couldn’t be happier!" "...this evening I sat down to read the July/August 2011 edition of The Absolute Sound Magazine, and thought I’d put on some pleasant but mostly background music as I read. ’The most relaxing Jazz Piano music in the Universe’ by Denon. Just background stuff for when we have people over for dinner, etc. OK, disc two "Lover Man" with Sonny Stitt and Cedar Willams. The overall presence and (fill in every over the top audio review you have ever read) and the Vibraphone bloom and decay, etc. etc. made me put my beloved Absolute Sound down to e-mail you with my wholehearted appreciation for your having this, in my experience, the best audio value for power amps (with appropriate front end, cables and speakers) in the universe--tubes or solid state..." "...the A3.5’s continue to impress me with their ability to really convey the music and the performance on a wide range of music, vocals, and instruments. Truly amazing! I am very satisfied with this purchase and everything stated about them is absolutely spot on without any hype..." "...timbre, nuances, speed (bloom and decay), soundstage depth and width, dynamics and imaging were all spot on without being forced, etched or "driven" in the HiFi sense. I was somewhat skeptical that the relatively low rated wattage (A3.5 mono bocks) output would really do the job, but once installed, the volume setting on my preamp was very close if not slightly less that previously using tube amps rated at least twice as high and solid state amps rated four times as high in output wattage... Vocals (male and female) were rendered with more subtle shadings and were startling in the "you are there sense", bass is now much more "fleshed out" in all its potential in timbre and dynamics, snare drums, brushes, cymbals and top hats are extremely more involving and piano is rendered in a manner that I thought I could never reproduce in comparison to the real thing.... In short, I have moved from listening to music to experiencing the performance. An amazing feat of engineering from an individual who has not only the skills and intellect but the passion for music and this wonderful hobby/obsession called audio. Thanks again for making this wonderful amplifier available in the United States." "...I was very impressed (awesome). Compared to some way more expensive gear, the Valvets (soulshine & A3.5) held their own in an excellent way. And for what they cost, I have to scratch my head and wonder..."
