Product Description

Code-name: THE LOTUS

Sonic Character: The Lotus is designed for articulation and detail.  Highlighted nuances, such as room reverberation and vocal decays, are ultra-realistic and layered over a dynamic, fleshed-out and toneful foundation.  You'll notice that this package resembles The Studio very closely, with the exception of the amplifier and headphone cable.  Think of The Lotus as a sound you see in your mind and The Studio as a sound you feel.  The difference is a focus on tonality with The Studio and dimension and Articulation with The Lotus.

 

The Gear:

Audeze LCD3 Headphones: The Audeze house sound is full-bodied and toneful, with fantastic detail.  The LCD3 is the Audeze reference and is the most dynamic and nuanced of all their headphones.

Bakoon HPA-21 Headphone Amplifier: The HPA-21 is Bakoon's most powerful and sophisticated headphone amp. The character of all Bakoon products can be likened to that of a Lotus sports car…light, agile and quick.  Bass has no boom here, it's just linear and fast.  Bakoon also has possibly the lowest noise floor of any product we’ve encountered, giving it a lit up sound that comes to life at very low volume. 6Moons likened Bakoon to listening inside a space capsule. Bakoon headphone amps are battery powered and have both Current and Voltage output jacks and a high-gain switch. The significance of a Current and Voltage output (this is one of the only amps on the market with Current output) is that one will invariably provide better synergy with a particular pair of headphones than the other, thus you have tremendous flexibility to get great sound out of any brand or model of headphones, as if you have two amps in one.

10’ Wywires Headphone Cable: The Wywires Red headphone cable provides a nice upgrade from stock cables. The character of this cable is close up and intimate, with excellent micro-detail and timing precision. All Wywires cables use high-purity Litz copper conductor, which have been phase-aligned and encased inside a sealed Teflon tube with an air barrier.

PS Audio DirectStream Digital Converter: PS Audio released its DirectStream DSD DAC in mid-2014 and by the end of the year the unit had won awards from just about every audio magazine out there. The DirectStream circuit upsamples a file 10 times and outputs it as double-DSD (the equivalent of 24/192 PCM). The result of this truly perfected algorithm is that your standard Redbook CD files now sound as good as hi-res files. Think of it as the opposite of an MP3, whereas an MP3 strips dimensional and reverberant information in the recording away, with the DirectStream double DSD this information is intensified, to produce a very realistic feeling, as if the music floats all around you.

1M Klee Acoustics Interconnect Cable: Klee cables are reference-level cables of the highest order. The character of these handmade cables is neutral in tone, lightning fast and as linear as a laser from the lowest bass to the highest treble.

2M Nanotec Systems #308 “Wonderful” Power Cable: Nanotec are Japanese cables that follow a basic formula with each of their products.  A selected type of high performance copper is measured in the company's laboratory for its electrical properties and based on the results a certain mixture of gold and silver nano particles is applied to the copper conductor.  The #308 cable, released in 2015 is one of the first audio cables in the world to use the new Japanese Triple PC copper as its conductor; if you've heard of Ohno Continuous Crystal copper, this is the new version.

1A Synergy HiFi Nanotec Fuses: Synergy fuses have a conductor coated with gold and silver nano particles. These fuses are directional and finding the correct direction will make a difference. The company offers limited types and values, but what they do offer is really good.

"The best way we've yet encountered to turn digital into music"

http://www.stereophile.com/content/ps-audio-perfectwave-directstream-da-processor

"But, for those who've waited for a computer-friendly DAC that offers, with every type of music file, the best musicality of which DSD is capable, the PerfectWave DirectStream may be in a class by itself."

http://www.audiostream.com/content/ps-audio-directstream-dac

"There was an amazing sense of purity to the DirectStream's way with music as if everything and anything extraneous had been stripped away."

http://www.audiophilia.com/wp/?p=13620 (Audiophilia Star Component)

"The DS is a game changer."

"PS Audio has perhaps achieved the impossible with the DS."

"The DS gets my highest recommendation; hats off and a bow to PS Audio.
