I have a playback delay problem using a USB Cable on Rpi3.. I have cheaper USB that plays with 4 seconds between tracks. When i try the 'Posh' expensive USB cable, it turns into 30 + seconds between tracks! (sounds better though!) I am using Rpi3 to USB/SPDif converter to a DAC. Picoreplayer and LSM. Squeezebox app on iPad/iphone to control.. Any thoughts??
jonez posted a topic in DAC - Digital to Analog ConversionHi all, I'm looking for some advice around DACs and whether it's worth the investment in my case. I'm thinking of equipping my RPi1B with a DAC.. but I wonder how much I can gain, given that the quality produced by the sound system is only as good as its weakest link. I do have some better BOSE Speakers, but I'm not quite sure how good my amp is. It's some older Sony MHC-701 'all-in-one' thing that I use only on AUX these days. Right now, I'm driving this with a pretty cheap Speedlink Vigo USB sound card (https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B0042RUGLK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). It's noticably better than the onboard sound output of the RPi, but that's easy. And which DAC would you guys recommend to equip a RPi 1B with? From searching around the net, I'm beginning to get the impression that that the 1B is quite 'old' already and many of the DACs currently available out there are (no longer) compatible. Correct? The only one compatible I've found so far is the HiFiBerry DAC (https://www.hifiberry.com/shop/boards/hifiberry-dac-rca/). Did I miss any other compatible DAC? I still like the 'old' guy and wouldn't like to retire it already... but are there any trade-offs to be made when running a DAC on the 1B rather than a newer version like the 3B? I would be a bit surprised if there are (given that everything is digital even in the 1B), but maybe I'm missing something. Thanks much & Cheers! Jonas
Why66Why posted a topic in SoftwareHello, I'm interested in trying HQplayer and using my RPI2 as a NAA device. I tried finding answers to these questions but failed, I apologize if this is too basic... 1. Which version of the NAA demon suits the RPI2? Jessy? AMD? 2. Is there a way of controlling the HQplayer running on a windows server with an iOS app? Perhaps a third party one? Thanks you!
