My DS dac/Bridge II have Snowmass installed and, as I noted, I have no problems streaming Audirvana+ through usb but suffer the same problems noted by others when trying to use Ethernet, so I think PS Audio has not yet solved this incompatibility. Others, who know more than I about such matters, have mentioned, it is anticipated that Bridge III and Octave introductions are to be expected at some unspecific point in time. I therefore suspect PS Audio has little incentive to resolve this matter.
While I sincerely appreciate the well-intentioned suggestions to improve the performance of the usb input, I must candidly admit the notion that a top tier dac, such as the DS, requires that I mothball my Bridge II and then spend additional hundreds of dollars strikes me as ludicrous.
I am certainly interested to learn of solutions using Mac compatible player software, especially those that work with Bridge II over Ethernet. This, of course, presumes the consensus opinion is that Ethernet via Bridge II is superior to the DS usb input. Help me craft a cost effective solution to streaming digital music. Thanks.
