Upgrade Your PerfectWave DAC I to the Mark II
Introduced in 2009, the PerfectWave DAC was a ground breaking product. The new Mark II version of the PWD represents a major leap forward in performance and features. It comes with a completely redesigned digital processing board, software, connecting cables and remote control.
New features of the Mark II include 192kHz 24 bit asynchronous USB, NativeX mode, non-saturated logic data path, 11 additional power supplies, lower jitter, new clocks and a balance control for the output. The new Mark II outperforms the Mark I by a significant margin with its improved sweet, open, analog and musical performance.
Owners of the original Mark I PerfectWave DAC can upgrade to the Mark II standard with the upgrade kit. The procedure can be handled by PWD owners at home or through your dealer, distributor or PS Audio directly.
Which PWD’s Qualify?
Over the life of the product there have been several variations of the PerfectWave DAC – none of the variations have any affect on the performance or audio quality – but slight differences exist in assembly and CE compliance procedures. All PerfectWave DACS qualify for the Mark II upgrade process.
This version of the upgrade kit is for Version 1 and Version 3 models.
Install the MKII Yourself in Less Than an Hour
The MKII upgrade is self-contained on a single PC board. It is quite easy to remove the old and add the new.
The MKII digital processing board is the top board inside the PWD and is connected with plug-in connectors. All that’s required is to remove the top cover of the DAC, disconnect the plug-in connectors, remove the back panel connector locking hardware and screws, pull out the old board and reverse the process to install the new one. It’s that simple. Once the unit is back together, you load new supplied software with the rear SD card and you are done and ready to enjoy your new PerfectWave Mark II DAC.
