I ripped my cd collection about 2yrs ago using dbpoweramp to AIFF.  I used the following organization:

Band Name folder

      Album Name folder

                Track #  Band Name  –   Song Name

dbpoweramp added a text document and folder jpeg.

 

What is the correct way so the DSD w/Bridge II and MCONNECT show the correct info and cover (as if I was streaming from Tidal)?

 

Thanks.

The way you’ve organized your files on the hard drive looks fine.  But read on . . .

I assume that dBpoweramp put in the correct metadata for you (it should have) — in other words the band’s name goes in the Artist field, the album title into the Album field, the song name in the Title field, etc.  It’s the metadata that governs what you see on the screen, not the file name as stored on the hard drive.

About art: there are several ways of organizing this.  Putting a cover image for an album into the same folder as the song tracks, with the name ‘folder.jpg’, is a standard method and should work fine.  It’s also possible to embed the art directly into each file (again, with dBpoweramp — at least with some formats such as FLAC; not sure if this works with all types of audio files).  That works too and is insurance if you are moving files around the ‘folder.jpg’ accidentally gets separated from the album it goes with.

The following users say thank you to magister for this useful post:

Thanks for the reply.

So for mp3, and flac metadata and covers are embedded.

For AIFF, a whole different story?

So the question i should be asking: how do you rip AIFF to show correct info and cover on the dsd and mconnect?

Same thing for AIFF files. The metadata and the cover art that is input in dBpoweramp while ripping should display on the DS screen the same as magister describes for FLAC files.

Direct Stream DAC, BHK Preamp, BHK 250 amp, P10, NPC, Linn LP12, Wilson Audio Sophia 3 speakers, PSA AC-12 power cables, Belden ICONOCLAST TPC speaker cables and balanced interconnects

The above screen shot is what I see on mconnect.

Any ideas to get it to recognize the metadata correctly?
