  1. Allo Digione

    Allo Digione What is it? It is a transport for RaspberryPi 3 with Coax/BNC out. If your dac supports this input, read on. There are two flavours: One is a PI-hat https://allo.com/sparky/digione.html Another one a complete streamer/player assembled: https://allo.com/sparky/digione-player.html Darko's review: http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2017/08/allos-digione-pulls-five-star-sound-quality-from-the-raspberry-pi/ Volumio's recent review: https://volumio.org/allo-digione-player-probably-best-volumio-based-spdif-transport/ Personal take: My dac happen to have galvanically isolated usb, so it sounds heavenly as it is. But sometimes RaspberryPi has been a bottleneck as these usb buffer overran/underran clipping noises leaking into the chain. I decided to try a DIGIONE, to see if it would illuminate this problem. Yes, RPI's usb was the culprit. After installing the DIGIONE on my RPI and selecting I2S Digione in Volumio config, my system sounds as good as before, without the usb induced artifacts.
  2. Hi I am wondering if Diet Pi (or Volumio) will work installed on an Allo USBridge in my current system. I understand Diet Pi is preferred to Volumio from other posts although Volumio looks like it's easier to install. My music library is stored on files on USB drives attached to a 32 bit MacBook running Mac OS X 10.6.8 and on a 32 bit Windows VIsta PC. These are all on my LAN. I have an older version of LMS installed on the Mac because I used to have a Squeezebox Touch. I cannot install or run the latest versions of LMS or Minim Server because they will not work on either of my Mac or PC OSes (I know, I need to upgrade my computers). I am using an Auralic Aries which runs on Lightning Server which doesn't need installation on the above computers to work. So if I install Diet Pi on an Allo USBridge, what else do I need? Do I need a server and/or player software? If so, what are the system requirements? Will the software work on 32 bit computers? Thanks

  4. I'm looking at replacing my Mac Mini running JRiver & Raspberry Pi2 running Volumio2 with a dedicated music streamer. I've been looking at the SOtM SMS-100 , Aries Mini and the MicroRendu. The SMS-100 looks like it fits the bill, but the others have my interest as they are newer and possibly support more features, etc. The competitors look nice, but they are quite a bit more money compared to what I can buy a SMS-100 for currently. 99.99% of my music <24/192kHz so DSD isn't a high priority for me. I currently subscribe to Spotify, but I may be interested in the future to try other services. From what I've read here and elsewhere some are in the Mac Mini/CAPS camp and the other half are in the dedicated music server/streamer camp. Do I gain anything over my current players, ie. raspberry pi2 or Mac Mini running JRiver by going with one of the newer streamers?
  5. Would be interested in learning if others have had similar impressions or not. I've been playing in the computer audio game for a few years, owned 3 Dacs going back to a Valab as the first, and have been using a CAPS Lagoon, with my humble Rega BrioR and RS5 speakers. Out of curiosity I bought a Raspberry Pi2 and have it running USB out to Dac using Volumio software, Flac files are all on a NAS. The sound quality to my ears sounds incredibly good. I've run it both as the standalone PC, and also as UPnP renderer with files being fed from a laptop running JRiver. Sounds identical either way to me, both extremely good. Anyone else have similar findings with a Pi 2, or could my ears just be playing tricks on me?
  6. Volumio

    With the demise of the promising Tsunamp project (Tsunamp - Embedded Hi-Fi music player), I started looking around for alternatives. . . has anyone tried Volumio yet? Volumio Thank You, Gabriel
