My DS arrived today.
There is no SD card in the package. I believe this will mean no album art on the screen, yes? I can reuse the one from my PWD, after copying off and then deleting the old PWD firmware. For those who are not upgrading from a PWD, this is a significant omission.
I moved my Bridge from the PWD to the DS. I want to rename the Bridge (it just said “PerfectWave DAC [unit ID]”) and I never changed it. I hit the Edit button, erased the old name and entered the one I want, then hit Submit. The new name flashed for a second then it reverted to the old one. Is there a trick to this? Do I need to hit that red “Reset Bridge” button or something? Which leads me to . . .
I looked at the manual for the Bridge on the website. It gives installation instructions but nothing about how to configure the network settings, rename the Bridge, etc. This should be fixed.
There were no batteries for the remote. I mention this only because every electronic product I have bought, including those that sell for 10% or less of the DS’s price, always has included batteries. I mean, earlier this summer I bought an oscillating tower fan for $45, and it has a remote (!) and included batteries.
Now I will go fix the network settings on the Bridge and hopefully get some music!
