I have an Astell and Kern that I could play from but I really don't care enough because of the poor car cabin acoustics and the engine sound.

I have an AK 380 and cannot get it to work with the PCM in my 991.2 GTS. It connects vis Bluetooth but then doesn't work. It is not recognized by the system when connected via the USB port either.
It connects and works in my GT4 with the previous generation PCM.
Any advice on how to get the AK 380 to work?

I cannot play music from my Astell & Kern 380 via Bluetooth or connected via USB in my 991.2 GTS. Any advice?

It worked via Bluetooth with the previous gen PCM in my GT4.

I play FLAC on my 991.2 via SD card, never had an issue with it.

I connect my iPad or iPhone 7 with USB3 camera adaptor to Audioquest Dragonfly Red and then use an aux cable from AQ to aux in. I can play ALAC from the iPad/iPhone as well as stream MQA from TIDAL.
