Recently re-purchased the DS w/ Bridge II after moving on to a different DAC for over a year. Also Purchased a P5 as well to upgrade from the P3 I was using with the other DAC.
I got everything setup like i had it back in 2015/ Early 2016. SD Card in the back of the unit, the same one that came with the new DS. It’s not on locked.
All my settings are the same I saved in Jriver for Bridge II from before that worked perfect, cover art etc. I have tried resetting the bridge via the settings and also restarting the DS but I just can’t get the cover art to appear.
My music is all properly tagged in Jriver using the standard metadata formats. The music plays fine, with all the information coming in, just no art. Also tried putting the SD card on the computer, its blank, properly formatted in FAT32 no issues. There is no coverart jpeg file on there… could that be it?
On a side note about returning to the DS :
I am very happy to have the DS back in my system, the new Huron firmware certainty sounds like a noticeable upgrade to my ears from what I remembered Torreys and Yale in 2015/2016.
Missed the DLNA Streaming with the Bridge and I2S inputs, which my other DAC did not have. I was able to live with it because of how good the DAC over SPDIF was, it was a better than the DS but not night and day (guess I just wanted to try something else) … but as it burned in more and more over a year plus, the last 4 months in particular, the sound became increasingly digitalish and I just wasn’t enjoying my music anymore. It was time for a change.
And Having heard many DACs over the last 5-6 years, the DS just hits the sweet spot. And PS’s customer support and product philosophy is unparalleled, with you guys not charging major dollars with new products for negligible at best updates. The feature set of the DS, build and that it’s really 2 products in one with Bridge is just unlike anything else in the market.
Just want to get the cover art back!
Thanks for the help in advance!
