I recently received my new Bridge II and encountered a problem during installation. After removing the original Bridge I slid Bridge II in place. Slid in fine, but when I went to install the two screws the holes didn’t line up, the Bridge sitting high in the opening. I pulled the Bridge out and noticed the main circuit board, to which the two guides that the Bridge slides on, was higher on the right side (facing the rear panel). I reinstalled the Bridge and could get the left screw (closest to power connector) in with a slight push, but the right side required considerable force on the Bridge to line up so I didn’t force it. I did check the original Bridge and it too did not line up, though it was a slightly better fit as I was able to get both screws when I did the original install. I hooked everything back up and the Bridge II worked fine, connected with no issue and played fine. Sounds good too, but I think it needs a little break-in. And it played gapless, hallelujah!
My question is, should I leave the Bridge installed with only one of two screws or should I disassemble the DS to see why the circuit board is sitting high? I know the second option is somewhat of a big deal and not something I will hurry to do, but next time I move things around I might do it. On the other hand, leaving the screw out seems to easy, but if I force the other screw in I will put stress on the circuit board which isn’t good. If anyone else experienced this let me know, otherwise looking for thoughts on how to proceed. Thanks!
