I loaded some DSD into my AK240, most play ok but those high quality DFF (around 700MB) per song are not playing. Anyone has this problem?

You may try to reload those cannot play.  Somehow something goes wrong over the transfer and this might happened.  I did once with warning with the regular 44.1 files and at the end I have the whole folder deleted and reloaded and the problem was gone.

Has anyone tried amping the ak240 with the ALO international+? I am guessing the amp section in the ak240 is better even the power is less. But i am curious because there is a picture on the ALO website showing this combo.

its not working even after i delete and copy over it again. i put in a folder "DSD" > "Diana Krall" > "Album Name". those DSF are able to play within the same album name but somehow these DFF are unable to play. It says "too many unsupported files and music player will exit" with an icon at the top right hand cover showing the error. 

 

I wonder how those DFF sounds as its freaking 700MB per song! but somehow it just doesn't wanna play.

Ok.  I had the same warning before.

 

Have you deleted the entire music files in your 240?  I've done that and "reload" everything (except those pre-loaded with the machine).

I would do just that, a factory rest. I have had to do the same, once when I was having some issue with the player not recognizing some of my files. It worked straight away. It is a bit of a PITA, but not soo bad.

Been there, done that, glad I did :)

 

Instead of putting all the files under a sub folder in Music, had all the folders part of the main files. Better to start again.

Anyone here can recommend what software is good to edit the meta data of .wav and DSD songs for Mac?

post #4648 of 5499

I don't think you can with WAV, and with DSD, only DSF but not DFF. I use mp3tag.

 

BTW, I was going to suggest that if you do decide to do the factory reset, put on that DFF album first before the others just to see if it's ok on its own. If it's ok then there maybe a bigger issue at play. If it's not ok, then at least you've identified the offending DFF album.

I use JRiver myself, I don't have any DSD though.

I use Tag that's available for a small fee in the App Store. It even allows tagging for WAV. smily_headphones1.gif
