A weird one. I just bought the new Bach Goldberg Variations arranged for small orchestra from Linn, in the 192k version.
The files have full metadata - I can see it when hovering over the files on the computer - but if I try to edit using dBpoweramp the files show as having no metadata whatsoever and no album art. If I try to paste something in, there is a message saying it’s not possible.
When transferred to the Nas and played using Asset all metadata and art is present and correct, and the music plays perfectly.
This is the first time it’s happened out of over 4,000 albums. Does anyone know what’s going on.
It’s a wonderful album by the way! I just wonder why I can’t see or change the metadata.
Perhaps you have bought DRMed data? Something like that never occurred to me but I have no experience with Linn downloads. Have you tried editing the metadata with another editor? What’s the file format, by the way?
It’s a wonderful album and a real tribute to Trevor Pinnock. I was listening to it yesterday and marvelling at how something can be expanded from a piece for solo harpsichord into a piece for chamber orchestra. I have a string quartet version by Fretwork, which is excellent, but this to me at is at a whole new level. I’m sure Bach would be delighted with it.
Perhaps if you buy the 192 you can see if dBPoweramp works for you. It’s certainly the first time I’ve encountered this problem.
I wish I could. Last week I had to shut down the system and move around cables and speakers to allow for the plumbers to replace the valves of the radiators. This was expected to be a routine maintenance work to be completed in a few hours.
We are now left with two broken radiators, a cold living room and no music. At least the speakers, the DAC and the SN2 haven’t been damaged so far!
Linn have been looking into it for me. They think it’s because the file names are too long. They have sent me new files with truncated file names and have asked me to check, which I shall do a little latter. They are a little perplexed but are keen to sort it out. Clearly dBPoweramp should handle it. I must say, I’m really impressed with how helpful and responsive they are being.
Just seen this. This is what I’ve experienced with a few albums - particularly if I’ve buried them in a deep directory. I solved the issue by downloading the to a directory further up the tree so the path isn’t so long.
