If you guys get sick of the bridge and all the firmware nonsense, you can hook it up by my alternate method.
Grab a Logitech Touch (while you can, they're discontinued) and use that to bring the music to your DAC.
Install the 3rd party app that turns the USB input to an output (Enhanced digital output).
You'll have to install their server software, but it's free and works flawlessly.
It's a tiny downgrade from the sound of the bridge, but it's so close you probably wouldn't pick it up unless you compare them head to head.
That's exactly what I have been doing for long time. In one of the system the Squeezebox feeds my PWD (MK II upgraded) and in the other it gors from the Squeezebox to a Genesis Ditigtal Time Lens and then to my Wadia 27. In both cased the sound if pretty good.
