I use to play FLAC files (various resolutions) with PWD through Brigde2 without any issue, my current source setup is:
- PWD Firmware 2.9.3
- Bridge2 Firmware 1.2.1
- NAS Synology DS416play
- Minimserver 0.8.4 update 114
- Minimstream 0.7.4
- BubbleUPNP 2.8.14 on android Sony Xperia Z tablet
I know my PWD/Bridge setup is not the latest, but I am happy with it, since I don’t need the latest streaming capabilities, I like the current SQ as it is and would not like to change it with new firmwares.
I understood that with the Bridge2 I should be able to play DSD (only 64), I tried with Minimserver without success, I read that Minimstream is needed for allowing Minimserver to send DSD to the Bridge2 using DoP, so I installed it on the NAS.
Now, the bridge displays all relevant information: The title, 176.4k 24Bit WAV and the time counter runs normally, but no sound can be heard, only a humming noise.
I know that DoP is built such that a bad decoded DoP file will generate a humming noise for preventing loud speakers destruction.
So obviously, the Bridge2 does not decode the DoP file, while, on the PWD display, everything is fine.
Does somebody have a clue for helping me?
