The PerfectWave Network Bridge II allows PerfectWave DAC and DirectStream DAC owners to enter the world of connected audio and rediscover their music in a fun way that has few sonic compromises.
Bridge II is the successor to the original Bridge network card. Bridge II has a number of advances to the original, including: gapless play, stable connectivity, far better sound, lower jitter, higher speed architecture. The step from Bridge I to Bridge II is a significant one. With Bridge II you aren’t tied to a computer, you can store and access your music from anywhere in the house, you can connect either wirelessly or wired, and perhaps for the first time, you’ll be having more fun with your collection than you have in years.
Bridge II is your network gateway to streaming music. Using a UPnP compatible controller on an iPhone, Android or computer, you can access all your music stored on either a computer or NAS drive and enjoy bit perfect music on your PerfectWave or DirectStream DAC. The Bridge easily slides into an expansion slot located on the back of the DAC and allows you to connect quickly and easily to your home’s network (router).
Once connected the fun of internet radio, bit perfect music up to 192kHz 24 bits, is yours to enjoy. Most agree music ripped in either lossless or raw WAV files, located on a hard drive, sound equal or better to what you get with the PerfectWave Memory Player, yet you can choose what you want to hear with the touch of a finger on your tablet or phone. This is fun!
