Hello all, hope i can find answers to my issues.
I just received my board 2 days ago, When I finally plugged it in i was able to play some dsfDoP256@768000, so i spent the night listening to my small dsd music collection.
The problem arose when i wanted to listen to .flac or .mp3!!!
Full on distortion for (mp3, flac,alac…) but not for dsd. I am really confused as to what could be my problem. I am currently running soundcheck’s “Squeezelite v1.9.9-1371-sKit-scdsm” highly optimized version of squeezelite with piCorePlayer v7.0.1 | www v00016 | linux 5.4.83-pcpCore-v8 | piCore v12.0pCP.
Here are the main settings i was using:
Output device: usb audio for audio
Output settings: hw:CARD=Tone1,DEV=0
ALSA settings: 65536 buffer value
Period count: 4
30000:300000: internal Stream and Output buffer sizes in Kb
768000,384000,192000,96000 were the samplerates available
Native dsd using: u32le
and some other minor tweaks…
was sounding amazing for DSD but distortion for MP3 and flac…
(the player is set to use either faad, sox etc…(through the LMS server) if it can’t natively play the files.
so im quite surprised on this strange behaviour.
i reverted to my regular setup still using the same ‘mod’ but w/o the dsd capabilities because most my music isn’t dsd… Oh yeah! I had to use the ESS9023 DAC audio output settings too for it to work for flac and mp3… soo weird
I still would like to not have to change all those settings everytime i need to listen to dsd.
I have been using his “mods” for a while… you should look it up great stuff!!!
he seem to be unavailable at the moment, so he cant help me.
thank you in advance
