You need to show us the metadata, buddy, to give us a clue as to what's going wrong

Hi James,

Can not really see on your shot, but MPV seems to have the same problem as I reported earlier. Your telling us that's solved now with the new software? That would be ever so great!
Please let us know when and where to get the new software?

Thanks,
Marius

Yes it is hard to see but it seems OK with the file I was sent. The new software is a least 2 months out.

Hmmm,
so I have the latest software, and still have exactly the same problem as MPV has/had.
Hope you keep working on that then....

When an album comes in 2 discs,I usually re-tagged files #.First disc 101,102,etc and second disc 201,202 and combine all into a single file.But with some albums live Traviata it simply don't work.I split again into 2 files (disc1 and disc2) and now the sequence is ok.

Yes that is one option but I think the software we are working on now should be better :thumb:

Hi Folks,

Do not know if you know who Bascom King is but he is a very well respected engineer, electronics designer and reviewer for decades. He requested a BDP-1 for review purposes and forward me this yesterday:

“Hi James:

I thought I would give you an update on my continued experience with the BDP-1.  As you know, I turned in the review to TAV a few weeks ago and I have continued to enjoy its use in my system

I also took the BDP-1 to a friends system and the BDP-1 through a Wyred4Sound DAC-2 modified to drive this special tube output stage into his very high resolution system and the BDP-1 sounded materially better than the previously very high level of musicality that this system has with the Modwright modified Sony NS9100ES player playing high resolution Digital Audio Discs made from various hi-rez files"

Bascom King


P.S. – Bascom purchased the BDP-1 for his own system

James,
New BDP-1 review posted last night on Positive Feedback.
The way the article was written, made me think that setting up files for the BDP-1 is kind of complicated?  I thought you could just copy flac files from your computer to a thumb drive and play them via the front panel or a handheld device?  I am referring to the beginning where it talks about how the files have to be set up to work.

Hi,

I just read it and I am not sure other than he may mean different programs accept information differently but I have never had any issues when accessing files on many different interfaces?

Congratulations, the main thing is he obviously loved the SQ, as do we all. I do think he made hard work of the file handling though, he made it sound far worse than it really is! Also Mpod is such a simple interface and so user friendly, it all sounded a little picky to me, as if he felt he had to justify his pay cheque...

Cheers
