Musica Pristina A Cappella III Streamer ?

Wondering if anyone has had a chance to hear the A Cappella III streamer ?  What are your thoughts ?  There's only one review online via audio beatnik

I'm in the market for a streamer in the 3-5k range.  I don't need a CD ripper or anything, just looking for the best delivery of music files primarily off of Roon/Tidal or hi-rez downloads (overall mainly red book quality). 

Obvious competitors include Innuos  ZENith III etc. 

Tend to prioritize devices that can offer the PrAT factor and increased sound stage size/space around  players.  Any other benefits are a bonus


- Roon/Tidal via computer (tb replaced by the streamer)
- Yggy A2/G5
- LTA microZOTL pre
- FirstWatt F7/Pass XA25
- Tannoy Eatons

All cables via Audiosensibility (sig series)

is your DAC a PS Audio DirectStream by any chance?  I am looking for a streamer with I2S digital output that will work with my PS Audio DAC and am concerned about compatibility.


The Musica Pristina is I2S compatible with the PS Audio, Denafrips, and Rockna.  Musica Pristina is a great company!
I'm not sure if it is compatible with the rockna standard - but definitely the PS audio standard. 

Great news if true - do you have a Wavedream or Wavelight ?

You have the older Musical Pristina unit though correct ?


I have a Wavedream. Kev from MP said supposedly the latest rockna firmware is supposed to allow me to choose between Rockna/PS audio pin configs but I don’t seem to have that option on version 4.7.

Tbh - between the Intona USB implementation and the OXCO - it is still very tempting unit, i2s or not !
