Perfect Wave DAC Owner Unite - Page 87

post #1291 of 1567

If there is a new DAC, I'd hope it only involves changing out the mainboard and keeping the network bridge the same.  The convenience of modularity, the cool network bridge and the promise of a future-proof design were the big attractions for me.

I'd say the opposite is what they should do.

Fix the Bridge & eLyric so they actually work and not punt the ball to JRiver. Jriver works, but I can't do gap less with it and I can't control the functions of the PWD with it.

The DAC sounds great as it is......when you can get it to make sounds.

I have no issue with eLyric on iPad and controlling the PWD Bridge, my music is stored on NAS.  Love the DAC as it already and have no plan to upgrade.

I gave up on the bridge. It worked but not with Elyric
It did for a while. But then it stopped.
Insd the bridge. I use an offramp 5 with the DAC
Jriver and jriver remote. It sounds fantastic.

Jriver remote is a really easy and good remote.
I am hopeing for a new DAC tondo DSD
And I am sure it will be am upgrade of some kind.
I can add this they have the best support of any product it have owned
Having a dedicated web forum is just great no one I know has done that
I have gone to the website many times and always got answers
Maybe not always what I wanted to hear but real answers and not myths or hearsay
Anyway I just figured I ask thanks all
We will just have to wait and see.

Are you on iOS7? 

That update killed the eLyric app. I haven't seen an update (unless I missed it).

There is no fix. But there are people on ps audio saying it still works. But not for me.
There has been talk about a wav stream app but it is not real eased yet.

Ha! Yeah not seeing the device as well as a screen that looks like this:

 

 

The problem lies in the app. The bridge works fine if I run it from JRiver, (but no gapless or PWD control). Resetting it accomplishes nothing.

But I need gapless. If your computer sits close enough to the dac that you can use USB, JRiver does gapless. My computer is in a different room than the main stereo, and connects to the PWD by Ethernet.
Gapless does not work over Ethernet. Apart from that, Jriver works fine.

I have treid The Plug Player app and it sort of works, but features are very limited and it crashes a lot.

Exactly you can do that too. And use the j remote on your iPad.
