Hi, I have a couple of questions about the Bridge II which I suspect have been asked before but I’m struggling to find a definitive answer.
I’m currently using a Melco NAS connected into my DS via USB, using a W4S Recovery and good quality USB cables (Oyaide Continental 5S as main cable to Recovery and Curious Cable from Recovery to DS).
Im using bubbleupnp on a Samsung tablet to control playing files from Melco as well as steaming from Tidal. There’s no need for a laptop/PC in this setup, tablet controls everything.
My next planned upgrade was to purchase a Lanrover to get the very best out of the USB.
However, before doing that, I wanted re revisit whether or not Bridge 2 might be a better option, so I have a couple of questions I’d like folks views on:
Is there a general view as to whether bridge 2 sounds as good as or better than a well implemented USB connection i.e. my current setup plus Lanrover? I realise there are further tweaks to take USB even further but if Bridge 2 performance is as good or better, it would be a simpler and more cost effective option for me.
If I went for Bridge 2 instead of USB, will I still be able to control everything, including Tidal streaming, from my tablet I.e. No need for a laptop or PC in my setup? This is really important to me as I don’t want the hassle of having to have a laptop/PC.
Many thanks in advance for any input or advice.
