In a separate thread I was told there is a context menu item to display this info. It doesn't work for me at all, I don't have the context menu item, so that thread is still open. But Tony also said his impression is users don't want UI clutter.
I don't know who Bluesound customers are and I am sure Tony knows that better than I ever will. But at the same time, the only people I have ever communicated with who do have Bluesound devices are audiophiles like me. We all want to know as much as we can about the audio files we are playing and it is not considered clutter.
Given Tony's impression about what customers want, and given even if the context menu item for Technical Info worked (for me it does not) maybe a good solution would be to have a UI option to show all the details and make the default not to show it.
Even if somebody can get the Technical Info context menu item to work for me, I really don't want to have to take action on every song. I want to see the details as every song plays. To me this is so basic, every DAP does it, all my DACs do it, I can't imagine how it could not be considered important by most people using Bluesound devices.
Having a UI option defaulting to No would give us the best of both worlds. It would give audiophiles the info we want and it would not change the UI for people who don't want clutter.
