I received my new PS Audio DMP yesterday which along with the DS DAC replaces my Ayre C5xe player in the big rig. Although I'll have more to say when it is broken in I have to say at the outset this thing is a paradigm shifter for me. It took about thirty seconds of listening to my go to evaluation CD (An old Ryko Au 20 recording of Frank Zappa's Apostrophe) to realize this was money well spent. I am using an Audioquest Coffee HDMI cable between the two pieces and am using Shunyata Alpha powercords on both. Interconnects are balanced TEO audio liquid cables between DAC and arc preamp. Yes, the DSD thing is wicked and cool and sounds fabulous, but what I am hearing from redbook is... inspirational. This PS combo may be the best bang for the buck digital extant.
