Hi,

 

Imagine listening with headphones!

That's why I always play the music first and put the headphones on second. Hard learned lesson!

Hi @TimCurtis

 

Thank a lot for the new Moore version!

I've installed now and I have some questions:

 

What is the difference between "Advanced-LL" and "Advanced-RT" Kernel?

What is the difference between MPD scheduler "FIFO" and "RR"?

What is the better setup?

 

Soxr multithread sounds better?

 

Have a nice day!

Andrea

Yes, please Tim (or somebody else) could you give a brief explanation of those settings and what to expect in terms of sound quality?

TIA,

JoseL

I forgot to mention above, Is it possible to add "Recently added Albums" option?

 

Thanks

Yep, it would be great to have that option, also the ability to import playlists on different formats (m3u/m3u8, xlm, etc).

Please Tim, consider those features for upcomming updates.

TIA,

JoseL

Hi Andrea,

 

The Low Latency (LL) and Real-Time (RT) kernels impliment a Task Scheduler strategy that allows the music playing tasks to get higher CPU priority than with Standard kernel.

 

This just means that that music playing tasks will yield the CPU to other tasks less frequently. Tasks configured with FIFO policy are least likely to yield than tasks configured with RR policy.

 

Another feature of the Advanced kernels is that they include a set of enhanced audio capabilities for ES and PCM series I2S DAC chips that were developed by a couple of the Linux Audio kernel devs a while back. Things like 352.8/384k rates, integer bclk divider, etc.

 

Some users feel that these techniques result in improved sound quality but like many things in HiFi YMMV.

 

SoX multithreading is really about efficiency and probably only makes sense when running Standard kernel. It too may not make any audible improvement.

 

-Tim

Thanks for the update. I don't understand many of the improvements but they sound impressive :D

 

So, still no Spotify service support? Pity, this rules me out as I don't want to keep/maintain two sets of players + hardware and keep switching between them. I use Spotify extensively.

 

Tim, is there any docos/links (not necessarily your own) which explain all these advanced tuning options in a humanly possible way?

 

Cheers

I am running spotify connect on the same system as moode 3.5

Does the 04-13 build still set client volume to 100% initially?
