Hey, I just deleted a thread/link for free financing at Music Direct. This is against the no ad policy. So, I don't think it was appropriate.

Yes, you can do 36 months same as cash through July 3rd. I mention, because I remember LR mentioned if he could get a good financing deal.... . You probably new that...but we're all so busy...maybe you missed it (if you don't get their sound bites newsletter). A good opportunity...and they only offer it periodically.

I also like the units they are shipping = virgin stock....so you can hear and burn in....then add the new Firmware upgrade just posted June 19th.

Peace, an everyone have a great 4th!   -Stone


Music Direct means I pay tax...but, same as cash means Eric might get a DirectStream!  :)

Thanks for the heads up!

Stone, LR,  I don't think posting a link to a store or deal is prohibited here.  Steve can correct me.  If members here want to alert others to discounts or other deals I think it's great...I do it all the time.  Now a retailer directly advertising here is another matter.  Mark.

PS...Elusive Disc, Sound Stage Direct and Music Direct have all started there 10% off sale for the 4th...the later two you have to remember to enter the code given.  I'm busy deciding what to order from whom as I type!

This CD next...

Thanks for the impressions Stone. It will be interesting to hear in my system in about three weeks. All those things you speak of I feel I already have with my PS Audio power treatment (including all those PowerBases!) and cabling and the PWT and PWD Mk II, as well as the Decware amps and speakers. It really has to be a step up for me to go gaga.

Boy was the wait worth it for me on Saturday, had a wonderful time with Lucy then, and Sunday afternoon as well. So looking forward to my next time off, Thursday!

I agree Lon. It is going to have to show you something substantial.

I agree as well - after the XLR upgrade on my ZMA, I really feel my Oppo/Decware setup with P10 foundation is at the highest level it's ever been.

That said, I'm practically salivating at the idea of what the DirectStream could do for my Redbook collection (which is like 200GB+ of ripped data now).

I have a few calls to make this morning, lets see what happens.

I'm pretty sure that it IS going to be a step up, but my sound is so good now* that it seems insane to spend the dosh.

But then being sane has never been my favorite state of being.

Eric, I think the DS will blow your mind on balanced into the ZMA. I know you like the sound of the Oppo a lot more than I do, but this is going to be a leap up.

*The latest changes that boosted the sound to new heights are Genelax KT66 power tubes and an Amperex OA2 voltage regulator tubes. Wow!

Lon, I might have to check out those KT66 on the ZMA sometime. I've already got a spare set of Cryo'd Tung-Sol from Mike, so I'm in no hurry to procure more tubes.

I do like the Oppo - mostly because for the money it's really a great Swiss Army Knife. I know there are better sounding devices, but for me, it's exactly what I need.


Anywho - DirectStream INBOUND!

Worked out 36 Months same as cash with Music Direct. I had to pay tax, which hurt, but I should have my DirectStream plugged in and playing later tonight!  :)

Now I just need to save up and wait for the Bridge II

Good news on the DS. Excellent!

I have a set of the Tung-Sol as well . . . and at first, before the Genelax broke in I was like "what, the Tung-Sol are better" but after break in the Genelax are really something! (Both my sets are cryo'd).

Awesome LR...36 months same as cash! Even with your IL state tax.... . I'm glad I put that out there.

Lon, same here...to heck with sane:

I will be getting the Genelex Gold Lions
I have Cryoset Pre Tubes already in hand for the ZMA
I will be adding a Kimber Select 1030 RCA IC from my DSD DAC to my CSP3...the CSP3 is that good! (I'm currently using a Kimber Silver Streak to my Pre and a Kimber 1030 from Pre to ZMA.....then to Kimber Select 3035...)

Loving the DS!  The little bit of bass bloat is gone and the cloudiness is gone, now letting all the detail through! (Lets face it, I get more musical detail because the ZMA's Clean Power Supply and No Negative Feedback...Steve, the mans a genius...an the CSP3 too...obviously...). ....my Cables have a lot to do with it too = Holographic an Low Noise Floor...... .

LR, yes, the bridge is in my future too.

Lon, what Power Cord are you using to your PWD?  
Is it the AC-12?

Lon, you will be getting the new FW update. I am going to resist doing it until I have 200 hours on my Unit.  

I like the fact that their will be access to old....

I am on Holiday and it will be hard to split time between the DS and being outside partying! Weather is looking good here for the 4th! Then I'm off to NYC an Upstate for 10 days.  I might have the GF run some hours on the DS for me...she is not on this Trip.

Glad you are enjoying the DS Stone, sounds like it's a great source.

Yes, I have clean power and no negative feedback too, it's the way to go.

Yes, I'm using the PS Audio AC-12 on all my components. I've tried quite a few cords and this is the one that works everywhere for me.

Awesome guys!  I really think there is a synergy between PS Audio and Decware, but maybe that's too strong of a statement.  Regardless, they sound awesome together!  

Keep the feedback on the DirectStream coming in...

Norman Brown....Lydian, from the redbook CD After The Storm.

Norman was in the Room and he just burned the Listening Room down!!

I only have 27 hours on this DAC... .

This DAC should get CJ's Trademark free of charge...and to keep..."It just sounds right".
