New to the PS Audio Forums, recently purchased a DirectStream Sr with Bridge II card. It came with Huron loaded and 3.33 firmware on the card. I barely have 100 hours on this DAC, and already it sounds great. Before this I had both an Auralic Altair and a Mytek Brooklyn. This is definitely a step up.
As much as I love the sound of my new DAC, there is something detracting from my listening enjoyment. Apologies if this has been discussed here before.
I hear a pop or tick sound whenever the DAC switches from PCM to DOP or vice versa. Sometimes it’s not too loud, but other times it’s very noticeable. I tend to use playlists with a mix of PCM and DSD files, so I hear this quite a bit. I’ve noticed it’s more pronounced when using Roon or JRiver streaming to the Bridge II. Directly connected via USB, I still hear it but it’s not as bad.
Have others noticed this, and is it a known problem? My hope is that it can be fixed with a future firmware update. Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.
