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.

38 years after the introduction of the CD, PS engineers have continued our quest for perfection in the art of data extraction and delivery so you can finally hear what’s been locked away in your CD and SACD collection. The PerfectWave SACD Transport (PST) is is our most advanced optical disc transport. As with the PST’s predecessors, the PWT and DMP, PST is based upon an advanced Digital Lens which electrically isolates the mechanical transport/laser mechanism of the optical disc reader, removes jitter and timing artifacts, and focuses audio data into a single, bit-perfect, timing-perfected stream to your DAC.

New to this model—and for that matter, any disc player ever made—is our galvanically isolated output stage. By coupling the output of the drive mechanism to the PST’s internal Digital Lens by nothing more than a pulse of energy across space, any hints of noise or ground contamination are eliminated. The results of this complete isolation are magical: a previously unheard level of image separation, openness, and effortless reproduction. Never have we experienced noise levels this low—a seemingly velvet blackness that must be experienced to understand.

CD, data discs, and SACD reproduction is unequaled by any other player we know of. CDs played through PST come closer than ever to high-resolution PCM and DSD, uncovering new layers of dimensionality, soundstage, depth and musicality previously unobtainable in other optical readers or server based audio systems.

Like its predecessor, DMP, PST opens the long restricted DSD layer of SACD to PS Audio DACs. PST will deliver the raw DSD layer of copyright protected SACD directly into your PS Audio DAC through I2S. This means that for the first time you’ll uncover the wealth of audio’s finest digital medium, DSD, and hear exactly what the mastering engineers who created these discs have enjoyed all along.
