I'm using WireWorld optical cable but forgot what model it is.

 

Hi flymetothemoon,

 

Some DACs down sample an incompatible bitstream, so does your Meitner indicate that it is playing a 24/192 file at full resolution? 

 

The manual does not specify the resolution of the optical out, just the USB out, which interestingly is 24/192.

 

Thanks for your help ...

Here I'm playing DSD and the Meitner showing 176.4 for DSD.

I've read somewhere that some optical cable does not support resolution beyond 24/96kHz and this might be in some cases.  I've found the Wireworld SuperNova 6 is value for money.  In fact I asked my cousin in LA to buy it online for me couples of years back.

Thank you, fly, I was not aware that some toslink cables are bandwidth limited.

Hi guys, last night I loaded various albums on my AK240 by doing the drag and drop method but they have all picked the same album art from an album already on the device, which is highly annoying! Would a program like mp3 editor help me sort this out so all my albums have the correct album art?

You may want to try Initialize Media Scan and if that doesn't work try Settings Reset. Both options are under Settings/Default Settings. Both take a while to complete, so give it time.

One other thing, if your AK240 is connected to you computer via USB, while you're rescanning or reseting, it either takes much longer or it causes it to stall. Thats been my experience. I don't know why, or if that's really the case, but it seems to complete much more quickly if disconnected. YMMV

Thanks. Are these 2 options in MP3 editor?

No, they are part of the AK240 OS. From the home screen, choose Settings and then scroll to the bottom and you'll see Default Settings. Don't choose Factory Data Reset, that will wipe all of the data on your AK240 (like it was new out of the box).

I'm assuming your artwork was OK before you transferred your music to your AK240? 

post #4755 of 5499

Yes I am pretty sure they were ok. I think what I might have done is when I dropped the files into the music folder on the AK240, I inadvertently placed them on top of an existing file and it's then picked up that file's artwork. I'll try your suggestions when I get home tonight. I suppose as a last resort I could delete those files and then re-load them onto the device but that's going to be a pain to do!
