Please what is the highest sample rate the bridge can be bit perfect? the PS Audio test file is 96khz and 24 bit.
Can a 176.4 24bit and 192khz 24 bit test file be made available from PS Audio please
I’m trying to decide my best solution I have tried today after purchasing a 4m active USB cable with a joining 1 meter AB USB cable I can hear sound and it is not choppy but does not pass the bit perfect test as the bridge does.
Paul and Ted please what is the best interface to use to achieve the highest bit perfect interface to the DS. In my mind if it is bit perfect the transport media should not matter
I would like to achieve the maximum bit perfect transfer rate even if that means a small computer in the listening room I did try to get away from having to do that but a Intel NUC may make that bearable.
will USB with a short cable support bit perfect DSD 64 and 128
Appreciate all advice, sorry for all the enquiring questions though I’m keen to make the right purchases to mate with the DS DAC amazing musical performance
The Bridge supports 24/192 PCM (and therefor single rate DSD via DoP). The 24/192 bitperfect test file for the bridge is huge, but there’s no reason we can’t offer it to download.
(FWIW If you have any audio tools, you can just take the 24/96 bit perfect test file and change the sample rate (without resampling) and for the bridge loop the test file a few times.)
The probable reasons that you don’t pass a bit perfect test are setup issues in your player or OS. Have you followed the advice in the bit perfect test How To? It has some suggestions for where things go awry.
Yep all inputs to the DS should pass the 24/96 bit perfect test (and they do with any software I’ve used for the DS.)
All non TOSLink inputs handle 24/192 (and single rate DSD via DoP) and should pass the bit perfect test at 24/192
The I2S inputs on the HDMI connector also handle raw DSD at single and double rates (tho there’s no bit perfect test for that.)
The USB input handles 16 to 24 bits at 44.1 thru 352.8kHz and single and double rate DSD via DoP. and should pass the bit perfect test at any rate.
You may have already given the answers to these questions elsewhere, but I’ll ask them again and see if we can figure out what’s going on.
What OS are you using and which player software? The bit perfect test How To has all suggestions for all of the typical problems for users of Windows / JRiver MC (and some for foobar2000)
