I would not buy now a discontinued DAC unless I was sure I'd never sell it. Resale value takes a huge hit when models are discontinued.

Have you heard a Directstream unit in an extended listening session? I'd make sure you do, as most people love them, but for others they just don't sound right. Not sure what's going on, but I'm in the latter camp, and I've owned a PerfectWave DAC for 8 years. I upgraded to the DSD (Sr) twice and had to resell both times.
