    Sparky Dietpi Roon-Ready I2S Streamer

    The number of conversions from Ethernet to i2s and USB to i2s are exactly the same. 1 conversion each. If you compare the jitter from the Arm processor’s i2s signal (especially the way you are doing it without sending it a proper master clock based on the audio rate) and the jitter form a well implemented XMOS processor’s i2s signal the XMOS processor’s i2s ouput will be lower jitter every time. So why start out with a higher jitter source. Also, buffering the signal and reclocking is exactly what is taking place in your PS Audio Junior DAC so doing it twice hardly seems like avoiding extra steps. Finally, the PS Audio Junior DAC will ignore your master clocks and ultimately use its own internal master clock and that is likely the clock you want to upgrade;)
  2. Q: So in terms of physical hardware what does this involve? A: Just a sonicTransporter Q: Obviously a sonicTransporter is involved but what else? A: Recently updated:) Q:Does this mean we can soon output any PC/Mac audio into the sonicTransporter and send audio to the other end of the house to a Rendu? A: No. The sonicTransporter will output from it's player to any Merging AES67 capable gear. The Sonore Rendu will not be involved in the stream at all because the Merging device has network input. Q: A Sonore/SGC "Virtual Sound Card" on PC/Mac, playing to the sonicTransporter? A: No. The Virtual Sound Card will be on the sonicTransporter.
  3. Coming soon...please post any questions here. Current status: If all goes well we should have something for beta testers in about 2 weeks.

    If you have a VPN you need to disable it.

    Streaming via USB vs. AES vs. I2S

    I only know why we do things. i2s is actually very simple to work with and this may explain why so many people play around with it. The various pin assignments are more or less compatible. The fact that companies decide to use different pin assignments and formats is just a shame. We use to make an Ethernet to i2s / SPDIF converter and it was asynchronous. There is really no reason to loose data when streaming. The reason the USB boards have relooking is because they are dealing with the inherent jitter of the USB receiver when it generate i2s.

    Which DAC are you using?

    Streaming via USB vs. AES vs. I2S

    It uses a USB to AES board internally.

    What source is giving you AES3 output?

    Sonore Signature Rendu SE

    For a minute there I thought I was looking at a system at a show
  10. My bad...I meant Settings / MPD DLNA.
  11. Go to Apps / MPD DLNA and press Save.

    Email me your DAC Diagnostics so we can see what’s up.

    Of course it supports it and there is nothing to set.

    Sonore ultraDigtial

    That should slow native DSD into your DAC.

    These units are all made by Sonore in Boulder Colorado, USA. Barrows hand builds and tests each unit in small batches. It a really cool project and one we are very proud of....enjoy!
