From PS Audio
PS Audio is proud to introduce the Stellar line of components, continuing our four-decade tradition of ultra-high-value, high-performance products. Stellar will initially consist of three models:

Stellar Gain Cell DAC combines an updated version of our analog Gain Cell technology with a full-featured DAC that can play the DSD output from our new DirectStream Memory Player. MSRP $1,699 in the U.S. Full details here.

Stellar S300 Stereo Amplifier combines a Class-A Analog Cell input stage with a high-power Class-D output stage. Warmth and slam in one product, with 300 watts/ch into 4 ohms. MSRP $1,499 in the U.S. Full details here.

Stellar M700 Mono Amplifier combines the Class-A Analog Cell with an even more powerful Class-D output stage: 700 watts (into 4 ohms) of spectacularly rich sound that will drive any speaker made. MSRP $1,499/unit, $2,998/pair in the U.S. Full details here.

The PS Audio engineering team of Paul McGowan, Chief Engineer Bob Stadtherr, and Development Engineer Darren Myers pooled what they'd learned from developing the cutting-edge BHK Signature and DirectStream products, updated Gain Cell and Analog Cell technologies, added the latest-gen Class-D technology, and voiced them to meet stringent PS Audio standards.

"Even the most critical listeners will be shocked by just how good these products sound," said CEO Paul McGowan. "We listened to them for hours on our reference Infinity IRS system, and even though I have access to our state-of-the-art products, I can be happy with the Stellar components. They really ARE Stellar."

The Gain Cell DAC and S300 Stereo Amplifier are currently undergoing beta testing and will ship to distributors, dealers, and reviewers in March 2017. The M700 Mono Amplifier will undergo beta in March and will ship to distributors, dealers, and reviewers in April 2017. More products will be added to the Stellar line in due time.
