Has Anyone Compared the PS Audio DirectStream Transport to the PerfectWave Unit?

I have enjoyed a PS Audio PerfectWave CD transport, connected to a PS Audio DirectStream using an HDMI cable into the I2S input on the DAC now for a few years and that combination sounds wonderful.

PS Audio has replaced the PerfectWave unit with a DirectStream transport and folks I see who've posted reviews on the PS Audio site seem to be awe struck by the improvement, even with regular CDs.

Anyone on this forum made that switch?  If so, impressions?
I just made the switch. Still breaking in, but already there are noticeable improvements... Plus, I can play my SACDs and HiRes files from a Thumb drive. I will probably opt for the Bridge II card for internet streaming.
