Thanks Miska - I am not really sure how to check this or what is relevant. My switch is unmanaged (netgear) and works (passes to NAA) when the linux firewall is off, and the VPN is off. So is this something I should be check in the PC or network? Any pointers are helpful. Thanks.

 

Usually when you start VPN it changes routing tables. So check at least the routes once it is up.

Check the routes as @Miska suggested on your SERVER PC not the NAA, since you are running Linux Mint (which I'm not directly familiar with but I'm familiar with the others)

 

If you are using netplan (modern linux does) for the network config be sure on the adapter (network adapter that is) connected to the NAA you have this entry on your netplan (in my case eno1 is my network adapter)

 

  eno1:
   dhcp4: no
   addresses: [youripaddresshere]
   routes:
   - to: 224.0.0.0/4
     scope: link

 

netplan apply (after)

there you are adding a static route for multicast, still the VPN might change the routes and add its own entry for multicast I don't really know what the case is

 

If you are not using netplan for the network config just enter this on a terminal to test (the command on Mint might be slightly different)

 

route add -net 224.0.0.0 netmask 240.0.0.0 dev eno1

Additionally and I don't know if this is your case but I have found issues myself with other VPN's which required using "specific ipsec supported routes" to be added for the VPN. Since you are using NordVPN (which I never have)

 

Look for this option and turn it off if present "Invisibility on the LAN"

turn off this option as well "cybersec" if it is in your client

Thanks @luisma . I have been reading around the subject as I have not done this before. Linux Mint does not appear to use netplan. I have turned cybersec off on NordVPN. I have not seen 'invisibility on the LAN' on the linux version. I will check that though.

I did try this, eno2 is my adapter, I get a SIOCADDRT: operation not permitted.

I'm sorry try "sudo route add -net 224.0.0.0 netmask 240.0.0.0 dev eno2"

The problem it is definitely the multicast route missing due to the VPN updating the routing table (as Miska commented)

@Miska, I understand correctly that a bunch can theoretically work. HQPE is installed on Pi4. BubbleUPnP to PI4 (HQPE) processes stereo in a 4-8 band stream DSP to UPnP (MPD) receiver or NAA receiver (BBB or Pi3-4) and then multichannel DAC. It turns out PI4 with HQPE installed on it can work as a separate audio render with DSP processing.

Not to any UPnP thingie, only to a local DAC or a NAA DAC.

@MiskaI don't remember exactly in which thread, but there was some talk about USB controller onboard in order to have support at fs32x. Specifically, if I am not mistaken, you suggested Intel controller. Does this apply to USB support as native by CPU?

 

It doesn't matter where the USB controller is located, only thing that matters are technical properties of the controller.

As far as I know, you are familiar with Pavel Pogodin, who brought DSC to mind. In theory, the bundle should work. HQPE (Pi4) will send to BBB with PURE firmware and NAA enabled on it. If so it would be great.

Yes I know Pavel and that he has created number of variants of my DSC DAC design. I also have one of those.

 

And yes, if you have a NAA endpoint, you can send audio there from HQPlayer. But this is first time I'm hearing about "PURE firmware".

 

How much you can do on Pi4 depends on what exactly you are trying to do. It just about manages upsampling to stereo DSD64 with lighter settings. So if your goal is to output to DSC DAC, you will have some hard time running the modulators.

I just need a bundle to install a DSP in a car without being tied to a PC (x86)
Which will basically receive 44.100 over UPnP from BubbleUPnP / HI-FI Cast / MConnect and other applications and send to Pi4 (as I understand it is more productive than Pi3 when working with HQPE) with HQPE installed on it (which, in turn, will share stereo for 4-8 channels with DSP processing (LPF, HPF convolution, time delays)), then the processed channels on PURE with NAA and through a multichannel reclocker from Pavel to a multichannel PCM DAC. In theory, such a bundle should work.
DSD is not needed

Pi4 is certainly better. In addition, HQPlayer Embedded is not supported on Pi3 or older at all.

With convolution the filter size usually matters quite a bit.

What is this for you? Empirically, it will be clear how many channels will be pulled and with what filters? Filters are usually generated in Rephase

So is Intel controller onboard of Atom E3950 or Celeron J3455 be able to support it?

Will the Pi4 come with 2GB of RAM, or better than 4GB?

 

Bigger RAM is certainly better when you want to run HQPlayer Embedded. With NAA you can do with less.

I don't know. I have some E3950 devices, but I have not really tested it that way. More for running HQPlayerOS for less demanding output cases.

Thanks @luisma I am not sure it made any difference. I think at this point I would settle for getting it to run with just the firewall on!

Spasibo bolshoe for mentioning the PURE firmware! I have reactivated my dusty BBB and have Tidal Connect now! Besides NAA (not yet tested) and more.

AFAIK there's a networking DAC project up and going, feat. BBB>PURE OS>I2S> R2R DAC DSC 2.5~6 based on @Miska 's original open source and developed by Pavel @ppyand his sideman assembling the units. First happy owners abroad in Europe right now.

Chris, Are you getting this using your Win 10 NAA or did you have to go direct from your server MB with Intel USB? Which DAC are you using?

Windows gave me trouble running NAA at 1536 kHz. I switched to running @Miska's NAA linux image on the same hardware, just booting with USB stick, and it works perfect.
