I’m new here, a few days ago I got a Directstream with Bridge II, set up my Ipad with Mconnect and I’m immersed in the enchanted Tidal with the great sound that this DAC is giving me!
I have a question to the most understood, I would like to know the path of the data packets in this type of use that I am doing:
Hypothesis 1: In case the Ipad is working with a controller, somebnte sending the Bridge II commands so that it searches the Tidal server for the song I requested.
Hypothesis 2: The Ipad is downloading the data for itself and then sending Bridge II via the network.
Which of the 2 hypotheses is being used? From what I saw is the second one because I tried to disconnect the Ipad after loading a playlist and I also tried to close the Mconnect in the same situation and in both cases the song stops playing immediately.
In this case that the Ipad serves as an extra link in the signal path (data packet) there is some loss in the quality of production, am I right?
My best regards,
