    Katana player power question

    Hi Allo, I couldn't wait to try so have move the jumper but I now can't find Volumio on the network. There are 2 MMC cards - I left the smaller card in the Pi. Using both didn't help with finding Volumio. I have been through various start up guides but not able to get past this..... Thanks
  3. Hi, I installed Raspbian in order to use the Exagear x86 emulator. Aplay -l returned only the on board sound card (jack + hdmi). I blacklisted it and no sound cards were found. I plugged the usb to my dac and it showed up in aplay -l list. What do I need to do to activated the Digione?
  4. Hi, I am new to RPI and Allo. I am looking to initially just use a single power Katana player before experimenting with dual and triple power. In the tech manual. the instructions for (step 1) putting a jumper on J30 to close the circuit. In the Katana player I received, there is also a jumper in the middle circled portion but this jumper is not in the tech manual picture . Should I leave the jumper in place or move it to J30? in J26, there was already a jumper in positions 2 and 3 so will leave as is. Can't wait to try! Thanks

    I fried my Signature by plugging in my battery power supply into the Raspberry Pi connector. Went to Allo.com and posted on their Contact Me. They got back with me within a day or so and were very active in communicating with me. I was lucky enough to have my original DigiOne to use until they send me a new Signature. By the way, never had the SD card problem...

    Allo Digione

    8 month update. 5 top tier sd cards all heated up beyond norm and eventually fried from my digione, some fried within minutes and so hot to the touch it would burn my skin so I use pliers to pull them out before potential fire or melting. I resist contacting Allo for support because of the endless frustration in the past with their support (I was only ever in contact with their division in India and was tossed around to different people within that division). Although I've only tried using volumio and no other software, i'm sure the allo unit itself is at fault for most of my playback issues, frequent shut downs mid playback, usb wifi card turning off while plugged in, etc etc etc. That's about 80 dollars or more spent on sd cards already (the initial one provided got very hot and fried within a couple minutes). I'm posting here because I think I'll have quicker resolve with users on this forum than with Allo's customer support. Thanks

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! @GerardA Your post inspired me to finally move my lazy ass, remove the jumper and use my dedicated PS on USBridge and the supplied smps for Sparky. WOW!!! Everything fell in place. got even more depth and instruments came to life. Also the bass is tighter I actually was planning to do so for a period of time now but the dedicated PS I have build,gave me a big improvement already so I got lazy, and honestly I thought that is what this rig can give. I'm soo glad that I was wrong!
  8. yes you can connect 6.9v batt pack on clean side. its taken care on Clean side input stage.

    Thanks for the link. Ordered a pair, hopefully they won't take forever to arrive.

    Allo Sparky USBridge

    A necessary follow up. The ATL GT40alfa does not get recognized and that way the usb-dac - option does not work. With another dac the minidsp 2x4HD I got it to work consistently with Roon. Turning the dac or the usbridge off and on is no problem. But what bothered me was the sound, not really inspriring, boring and sounding not right. So I tried the second power adapter option. I put a 12 euro 5V, 2 amps microusb charger on the sparky and removed the jumper..... Left the standard Allo one on the usbridge. Wow, this is something else! Acoustics around the instruments, voice complete with every intonation, stable soundstage and real depth. (Funny that the music appears to slow down....) Very interesting and enjoyable to listen to! So I would recommend Allo to add a second poweradapter to the package and get everyone enthousistic. And for who is still using a single adapter please do yourself a favour and buy a second (cheap) one. ( I also put a 6.18 image on a sd-card to get it working as standard and problemfree)

    Yep, that was my idea, but I had not thought the configuration through. Just ordered some adapters ($2), so will check them out, but still may ask Ghent to make 'em. One of the advantages of using an inexpensive piece of equipment is that you have extra resources for tweaking...

    Hi @ALLOsupport Have you been able to discuss with Dan about missing Allo Web Gui DoP option with SqueezeLite? See: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/2386 Regards

    I frankly do not see why you want to replace the Allo USB-C to 2.5mm barrel female cables if these fit your PSU. But if you want to do so, you could ask Ghent to make you USB-C to 2.5mm barrel female cables. Something like http://ghentaudio.com/part/dc26.html with USC-C instead of male Oyaide. My reason for buying the Ghent cable was to get rid of adaptors and have a straight connection from the PSU to the Signature.

    Allo provided a USB-C to female so that their power supply (male) could connect. My battery pack came with a male connector, so it fit with the provided cable. Ghentaudio did not offer a USB-C to female DC. Maybe most folks who upgraded their cable are using LPS or other devices that have a female connection. I ordered a gender change adapter from Amazon or eBay today.

    The answer depends on your PSU. I have bought 2 Ghent Audio cables with USB C connector at one end and male Oyaide connector (2,5mm and 2,1mm) at the other end and they are perfect to connect directly to JS-2 (2,5mm) and to LPS-1.2 (2,1mm).

    Well after a lot of trial and troubleshooting over the weekend, it has been determined that the Signature board in my new D1S Player is no good. I have been able to get sound out of the onboard RPi headphone jack, but no dice with the Signature. I even went out and purchased a microSD card reader/writer and new card and flashed a new Moode program to make sure it wasn’t a corrupt Moode file, but it performed exactly as the original. I’m waiting on Allo to provide me with next steps. As I am in the states, I’m really hoping they’ll send me a new one with a return label for this one, otherwise who knows how long I’ll be without the device that I paid for in mid-December if I have to send this one back first. If this is not what they are prepared to do, then I may just purchase a new one and have them credit me back once this one gets back to them.

    Hi, could you please provide a link for this cable. Thanks

    DigiOne Signature return.

    On the Allo web site there is a "contact us" page. Use that for a quick response.

    Allo Digione Signature

    This forum has been so good that I feel free to ask a really DUMB question - I wanted to upgrade the Signature power supply cables and ordered some from Gent audio. Unfortunately, the ones that I ordered have a USB C connector on one end and a MALE Oyaide plug on the other. The cables that come with the Signature have a female end which connects to the male connector (either from the supplied power supply or the battery pack). Did I order the wrong cable or do I need an adaptor?
  22. Also what about other services like Tidal/Spotify? Thanks in advance.

    Sorry for being answering so late... The Cisco 2960 doesn't have a fan, at least those units with low numbers of network ports. I have one with 8 ports and it definitively has no fan. It doesn't have a POE feature at all – I think there is a related unit which has – so no, I don't use it (and actually cannot use it and even would not want to use it) to power the Pi. I have a separate LPSU with two rails to power clean and dirty side of Digione signature.

    Just got mine. It works well out of the box. Quite pleased actually ....
  25. Thanks, I dug it up from their website. They had it checked off on my Signature packing slip but it wasn't in the box. Couldn't find one locally so now I'll have to order. This means another week or two without Signature in my chain + additional shipping fees for something that costs about 10 cents to make.
  26. Hi everyone, I've recently recieved a Digione Signature and I'm testing a couple of battery packs for providing the clean power to the audio board. I have an nimh battery pack, which is labelled as 6v, but it's actually outputting 6.9v. Would this be OK to use? I see on the Allo site it says "and a second power 5V to 6V 100mA" for the Digione Signature. So would being a volt above the specified 6v potentially cause any damage? I have also ordered a second 4.8v battery assuming this will actually output a higher voltage, but presumably between 5-6v. Any advice on this would be appreciated. Andy.
