I just enjoy gapless playing with JRiver (latest issue 19.0.131) and Directstream. (fw 1.2.1) It sounds exciting and the change of tracks is very comfortable for my ears. Use of the bridge is no alternative.
However there is a big BUT. I use an I-Mac as music source and connect by 4,5m USB cable with DS. Always when starting JRiver it doesn’t remember to PSAudio USB 2.0 driver and I don’t see the driver in the JRiver Audio set up. I’ve always to do a hard reset of the Directstream to connect JRiver and PSAudio USB 2.0. That’s a bit boring to me. Plug off the USB cable doesn’t work, too.
I’m a bit surprised because usually USB support is no more issue in IT.
I’d be happy if anybody can give an advice to connect more comfortably.
