Unleash all that's been missing in your CD collection and, for the first time, hear what has been locked away on your SACD layer.

Locked inside your CD and SACD collection is a wealth of music you've not yet heard. How do we know that? Because we, like you, know what to expect from our reference discs. Imagine our surprise and delight as the first notes played on our new, galvanically isolated, PerfectWave SACD Transport. It was love at first listen. The PerfectWave SACD player is an engineering triumph—our finest achievement in musical reproduction and information retrieval from optical media.  Breathe new life into your CD collection played through any DAC. Send the raw DSD layer of SACD into your I2S input DAC so you can hear, for the first time, what's long been unavailable to external DACs in these high-resolution discs.

PS Audio engineers have spent 38 years perfecting the art of data extraction and delivery. The PerfectWave SACD Transport (PST) represents our pinnacle achievement in optical disc playback. A groundbreaking feature unique to the PST is its galvanically isolated output stage, connecting the drive mechanism to the internal Digital Lens with a pulse of energy, effectively eliminating noise and ground contamination. This innovation results in unparalleled image separation, openness, and a remarkably quiet background that enhances every detail of your CD and SACD collection.

 

The PST excels in reproducing CDs, data discs, and SACDs with unmatched fidelity. It brings CDs closer to high-resolution PCM and DSD quality, revealing new dimensions of soundstage, depth, and musicality previously unattainable with other optical players or server-based systems. As with its predecessor, the DMP, the PST unlocks the DSD layer of SACDs, delivering it directly to PS Audio DACs via I2S. This allows listeners to experience the pure DSD format, revealing the full potential of these recordings as intended by the mastering engineers. Rediscover the richness of DSD and uncover the nuances hidden in your collection with the PerfectWave SACD Transport
