If you want to use optical inputs, you might want to consider Google Chromecast Audio. They’ve stopped making these but you can still purchase them eBay. 

 

I'd recommend keeping a safe distance from CC. The sound quality is absolutely rubbish. 

Further, optical usually produced high jitter levels, which in turn kill the SQ. Go coax if possible.

Use RCA-RCA (Attention: you need a digital RCA cabel) ! ... oups doesn't work, see my post below !!!

 

Why do you say the inputs doesnˋt match? 

It makes no sense to convert to Toslink ... and it costs a lot of money for nothing...

Thanks for responding ,

I’m in a Apple ecosystem. So I want to use the best setup for that. So I was told Apple AirPlay would be the best way to extract audio from my Apple TV. So I purchased airport express to send an optical signal to my LS50w. It works for the most part. I just stumbled on the Digione thinking it may offer a cleaner audio signal versus the airport express.

@LowMidHigh

the toslink jitter had me thinking for a better signal. I considered getting a IFI SPDIF to help with jitter. 

 

@TomWoB

as far as the inputs not matching. I was meaning a direct connection. The LS50w doesn’t have a digital coaxial input, only toslink. I figured a $20-30 converter would work. Just wasn’t sure about the converter killing audio quality. I’m not  familiar with BNC connection. I guessing it would be BNC to RCA ? 

 

Thanks for repsonding guys.

Ah .... I just saw, the RCAs on the LS50w are "analog inputs", so you can't connect these RCAs with the digital RCA output of the DigiOne !

 

If you really want to use Toslink, use a HAT for the Raspberry Pi which has Toslink build-in, like: HiFiBerry Digi+ Pro 

DigiOne using with an optical connection makes absolute no sense, because with "a $20-30 converter" you will  lose the very high sound quality of a DigiOne anyway, so the HiFiBerry matches much better (and cheaper).

Bro, I tried to scrub TOSLINK jitter through a cascade of 3 x Mutec-MC3 tethered to a REF10. An $8,000 setup. Still sounded like crap!!!

hey, 

 I’m second guessing ordering a Allo Usbridge . Reason is , how much  will it increase my audio quality via AirPlay . That’s all

I plan to use it for. Wish someone compared it to an airport express toslink audio quality. AirPlay is limited to 16bit/44.  I guess worst case I’ll be out shipping back to Canada.

Anyone does know a ms-windows based software for conversion DSD -> PCM/FLAC pls?

 

I am aware of this TASCAM https://www.tascam.eu/de/downloads/current/Hi-Res%2BEditor but it takes ages for just one file and it works only file by file and I need to convert a few albums. 

 

Done. I found plug-in for foobar at https://sourceforge.net/projects/sacddecoder/

Hi,

 

Could someone please tell me if I can safely use this LPSU with my DigiOne Player?

 I was using it before with a Beresford Caiman MKII DAC with great results. 

 

Thanks,

Hi, my allo digione player comes with volumio...

This software can't provide me equalizer features... a shame.

 

Room compensation is a necessary feature for serious audiophile player.

 

Parametric equalizer exist with moodeaudio, but not for volumio.

Someone can help me for install moodeaudio on my player and replace Volumio. 

Thanks
