peroz on Cheap and good DIY DAC? http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/cheap-and-good-diy-dac/#p3076 Everything else http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/cheap-and-good-diy-dac/#p3076 Hi,
I currently have a topping tp20 and Frugelhorn mk3 with Markaudio CHR-70. The source is the Samsung P600... Yes, I'm playing from a tablet:S
And since a raspy is somewhere in my drawer from day one, I finally ound this raspyi project and it looks great. :)
I just need to pick a USB DAC, if i'm right.
Is there anything cheap and pretty good I could use? There are plenty on Ebay, but all support just 16bit USB input. Would you say 24 bits are mandatory?
Any suggestions?

Eric on RaspyFi + Raspian based NAS? http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/raspyfi-raspian-based-nas/#p2382 Everything else http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/raspyfi-raspian-based-nas/#p2382 Hey Guys,

Has anyone has success pairing RaspyFi with a raspberry pi NAS solutions (like this http://www.howtogeek.com/13943.....ge-device/)

I'm thinking of doing something like that, but I'm worried about whether the low power can handle high fidelity lossless music formats.

francesmurray on Easy fixes to renovation problems http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/easy-fixes-to-renovation-problems/#p2193 Everything else http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/easy-fixes-to-renovation-problems/#p2193 After years of recovery, the U.S. housing market has come a good way towards getting back on its feet. In fact, according to the Lubbock Avalanche Journal, an estimate by the National Association of Home Builders’ Remodeling Market Index has put the current remodeling market at its highest levels since 2004. However, before you run out to Home Depot to join the fray, realize that home renovation isn’t as easy as you might think. There are some problems that can be expensive to fix if you don’t know how to do it.

Adding a bathroom

The Journal, luckily, had some good ideas on how to solve some of the most common renovation problems. For instance, adding a bathroom is a popular renovation option and it has a good return on investment. However, it can be difficult finding space to fit an additional bathroom to an existing
home where plumbing lines may be far from where you want it to be. One option for making this work is to install up-flush plumbing. This works
when you want to add a bathroom to a basement with concrete flooring as well. Up-flush plumbing will have a macerating pump which breaks up paper and waste so that it can be pumped upward into the sewer system.

Letting in sunlight

People also like to have as much natural light as possible in their homes, but some rooms are too large or have no exterior walls to allow for
windows. The solution: skylights. Not only do skylights help cut down on the need for artificial light, they also provide natural sunlight which has
been proven to improve peoples’ moods and reduce instances of depression. If the home has multiple stories and a room on the ground floor lacks
light, homeowners can look into installing tubular light which can bring the light down through the upper story.

Hiding a door

Doorways pose complex problems—there has to be room left for a door to swing open and closed and sometimes there just isn’t space. Another
situation is when a door isn’t needed often, or a swinging door would clash with the decor. In all of these instances, a pocket door might be the
answer. Though generally beyond the skill of the average homeowner to construct, pocket doors are relatively inexpensive and take almost no room
because they can be slid back into the wall.

dadoprom on raspifi UI changes http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/raspifi-ui-changes/#p2191 Everything else http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/raspifi-ui-changes/#p2191 I find raspifi just a dream come true, it is superb. Although I would recommend a change in the web UI... I feel it is super uncomfortable to have the buttons "Browse" "playback" and "playlist" at the bottom of the page. I would rather see them placed just in-between the "play stop" buttons and "search playlist" field ... at the top, it would be much more comfortable, easier to use, because you don't have to go all the way down with the mouse for a change. Other than that, this a awesome piece of software, great work, keep it up.

jezykwskosmosie on Analog out and Raspberry Fi http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/analog-out-and-raspberry-fi/#p2189 Everything else http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/analog-out-and-raspberry-fi/#p2189 Hi,

My intentions are to set-up a raspberry with 2+1 (or ever a standard stereo) system working through analog audio out on the board. I don't intend to use any kind of screen for now, jus control and Incredibly basic audio player controlled from ANdroid phone (the phones, to be exact). My idea is to install RaspyFi on SD card, connect the speakers using standard audio out, boot it up, use any of the Android applications avaliable and go into playing. I don't intend to use any DACs and/or complicated setup, but i like the basic-out-of-the-box remote android player idea.

Should i encounter any issues while setting that up? Will 2+1 config work without any issues?

I would really appreciate any reply.

GhostMM666 on I2S over HDMI (PS audio) and resampling with sox http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/i2s-over-hdmi-ps-audio-and-resampling-with-sox/#p2144 Everything else http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/i2s-over-hdmi-ps-audio-and-resampling-with-sox/#p2144 Hello,

I begin by explaining my use of the pi. I want to make it a sound server with remote control (android app) and use it's i2s outpout, because this infercace is an emergent hifi standart, since psaudio propose an open inferface with an hdmi cable for i2s :

Some manufacturer propose compatible board for this :

If i understand it right we just have to connect the P5 headers of our pi to this, to obtain a good i2s outpout for hifi purpose, compatible with a growing number of equipement (for now, one of the only music server compatible is the sonore rendu : http://www.sonore.us/index7.html and it cost nerly 1600€ with this i2s hdmi option, and also a growing list of dac)

I know that an alsa driver for i2s has been written, but i don't know if it's work with this?

Another question, at diyaudio they are making a dac constituate of some separate (different projects...) boards. An I2S Fifo kit, constituate of the fifo board, a clock and an isolator :

They also have made a board which is an I2S to PCM converter :

As they speak better than me (extract from the datashit of the board) :

« Many people still like the sound of traditional MULTIBIT audio DACs, such as AD1865/62, PCM1704/02, PCM63, TDA1541/A, and many others, because they convert digital music into analog in a different way than popular DELTA-SIGMA DACs.
However, most of those MULTIBIT DACs were designed having to work with digital filter chip through an interface we called "PCM", which transmits left and right data simultaneously. In this case, the problem would be that the sound quality and the maximum Fs of MULTIBIT DACs can be limited by the performance of the hardware based over sampling digital filter chip due to the low internal calculating accuracy, the resource saving interpolating algorithm, and the old higher jitter hardware technology.
In order to boost the sound quality by introducing low jitter technology and to play higher Fs music, we need to get rid of the limitation of that digital filter chip by driving the MULTIBIT DAC from higher performance software base real-time up-sampling filter or high Fs music stream directly. So, we need a jitter optimized device to run MULTIBIT DAC at NOS mode from an I2S bus.

This I2S to PCM converter board was developed exactly for this purpose under the requirement of audiophiles. »

They also working on some multibit dac core board and I/V, so i think at this end this will become a complete dac ;) However, they clearly say that for optimal quality, we need to bypass the digital filter (or use nos) of our dac with a better software resampler. it seems we have a very good resampler in linux with sox that can easily work with mpd :

So, could we use the pi as a dsp to real-time resample ? With the Ian boards and multi-bit dac, you can send 32/384khz (8x). However some modern usb dac don't support this, it seems to come from a limitation of the usb inferface, some usb board has update recently their firmware (waveio do it in september). However it's still profitable for owner of nos dac (or owner of dac where you can bypass the digital filters) that want to have a better resampler than integrate circuit or dsp.

So the question is : the 700 mhz of the pi is enough for this kind of resampling with sox ? Their is also the limiations of the i2s alsa driver, that seems limited at 24bit/(96 or 192?).

Karsten on Volumio http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/volumio/#p2137 Everything else http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/volumio/#p2137 Thanks for quick reply,
Just will try the wsize rsize. Must read how to do this. Hardware volume is disabled.
The colours are a little bit to light for my eyes - thanks for the tip with the css.

Just another question: Did raspyfi supports ape? Volumio doesn't. My rapyfi didi it...could be because of installing upnp (gmrenderer).

admin on Volumio http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/volumio/#p2136 Everything else http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/volumio/#p2136 Yep, base is same... Got some minor updates, like a new kernel, that could be causing this...

Did you tried to decrease wsize and rsize? And also try to disable the hardware volume...

Let me know...

To change the colors, just copy the old Css folder to the css folder of the Webui. I thought these colours were better... Sorry you don't agree, what exactly doesn't convince you? Wink

Karsten on Volumio http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/volumio/#p2134 Everything else http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/volumio/#p2134 Hi Michelangelo,
This was no critic !
But installing raspyfi without any tweak had no problems with my async dac (Music Fidelity M1). Worked out of the box.
Did the same with volumio and crackles all over the time....just wondering. Base is the same ?
Where can I change this?

Gyp on Volumio http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/volumio/#p2129 Everything else http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/everything-else/volumio/#p2129 so, just download, put on an SD card and set up like raspyfi?
I've not been in here much as I've simply been using raspyfi to play music ( when it works, leave it alone), but I'll try this when I get home tomorrow

Okay - back to raspyfi.
Crackles all over the time on usb output. HDMI works perfect.
It's a beta1 - I know.

C'mon Karsten, the glass is half-full!!! In my setup I had no glitches whatsoever ( at 24/192 with an async DAC, which is the worst case scenario). Just try to decrease rsize and wsize on NAS settings... Or otherwise let me know.. Wink

Is volumio taking off from where raspyfi left or will both evolve simultaneously ?

The first one you said. You can see Volumio as a RaspyFi 1.1, but on more platforms and with more features (aka i2s DAC support, multiroom etc).
So you guys will still be at home on Volumio.
