It still works fine as a bridge without the display. Roon, Foobar, whatever I use to actually play the music tells me everything I need to know. Remove power from the screen and who knows, maybe the DAC (and Bridge) sound better.
I assume that is the case. I still wanted to highlight what seemed like odd behaviour and if it was just me, or if anyone else had seen it.
I’m new to the PS audio world. Flicked a bit between Windom and Sunlight and ultimately settled on sunlight with the volume dialled back to 84 as a compromise. Windom was a little TOO smooth in my system.
The behavior you describe can’t be a hardware failure and I guess I’m not surprised that the UI software might work that way. FWIW there’s nothing magic about a volume of 100 so using something else instead to get the UI you like is just fine.
