The “Class A+” Stereophile-rated DirectStream DAC converts any digital input format, such as PCM or DSD to a pure DSD stream and outputs near-perfect analog directly to your power amplifier or preamplifier.
With the optional Bridge, the DAC becomes a state-of-the-art music server controlled by both its front panel touch screen as well as PS Audio’s iPhone app. Music stored on your hard drive, NAS drive or computer can finally be streamed to your high end audio system without reduction in sound quality.

The Bridge will play just about any format of encoded music ever designed; lossless or lossy, high resolution or standard resolution. FLAC, ALAC, WAV, AIFF, MP3, OGG, APE the alphabet soup of formats is dizzying. The only thing the Bridge will not play is SACD because of digital rights problems with Sony who will not permit SACD to be copied onto a hard drive and stream the results.
Redcloud transforms DirectStream DACs into even higher performance level yet achieved. Redcloud improves the sound of Red Book audio as well as DSD and high-resolution PCM. Blacker backgrounds, greater instrument weight, improved image separation, far lower noise, better clarity and more lifelike presentation of music are among its many benefits.
