I may be late posting about this but I only installed Snowmass a couple of weeks back. I downgraded to Yale then up to Snowmass - worked first time with no problems. I’m using the Bridge II at the moment connected to my Synology NAS which is running LMS and using the Bubble app on my tablet. I listen to mainly CD ripped to my NAS in .wav format
So my first listen with Snowmass seemed ok, it was really just to verifiy that everything was working. But the following listening sessions of which there were quite a few - just did not blow me away the way a lot of posts seemed to suggest. In fact I always seemed to be left with the impression that the music I was hearing just sounded not quite right. It didn’t have that foot tapping drive that made you want to get up and boogie anymore. Somehow it seemed slow like it was struggling to get out or like its playing through treacle. Sure its clear enough with good treble and bass but some how it wasn’t hooking me in anymore!
Also, I don’t like the fade in issue at the beginning of certain tracks - not sure I can live with that.
Finally, last night I re-downloaded Redcloud and installed it straight over the top of Snowmass, which again went perfectly, - and listening to the first track I could tell It was sounding brilliant again, the boogie factor was back like it was before I installed the Snowmass, and there was no fade in issue. I think Snowmass was the latest version.
So, - I’m not complaining, as I’m loving the sound with Redcloud, but I’m just curious if anyone else has experienced anything similar with their DSj?
