For LMS setup try using the web interface, "Settings", bottom right hand corner, LOTS there to look at.

"Information" shows music scan details, "MyMusic" set scan options.

Thanks, I have checked "Settings" but there does not seem to be a way to tell LMS which tags should actually be indexed. I have a collection of mainly classical music and thus tags like "Ensemble", "Form", "Conductor", "Composer", "Work" (or "Composition") plus a few exotic tags. With MinimServer I can define an "indexTags" list of tags that shall be indexed, LMS does not seem to be very customizable in this respect. It is probably good for pop music but it does not appear to have the flexibility needed to manage classical music collections. Do you know a pointer to some detailed documentation on how LMS can be configured? Anyway, I will first try to assess how the piCorePlayer sounds in comparison with MPD in my minimal Raspbian distribution. If the sound quality is comparable I do not need to dive into the LMS documentation because I am actually very happy with the MinimServer + upmpdcli combination.

The December AL 0.5 versions for RPI  are definitely improved over earlier versions. The 32 bit version is CLI but its configuration menu includes automation of optimizations that you had to manually edit before (extreme=overclocking).  The 64 bit version is the LXQT GUI interface, also included CLI optimization menu,

slower to load than 32 bit but it works for me now whereas the 0.3 version just locked up.  I also find 64 bit to have fewer digital irritants

( both tested with LPS 1.2 as power source)

well, drat. The 64 bit version works fine for 44.1/16 but won't work for 88/176 sampling(just digital noise like an unsynched rate) and has skipping issues with 96/192 sampling rates. Pity as it does sound better than the 32 bit version for CD quality

Thanks for the heads-up, going to test it as soon as I have some free time from work! :)

By any chance, were you able to test squeezelite-R2? Maybe with DSD files?

True to say, I did not spend much time on that, but with version 0.5 I had to use the normal squeezelite version and not the squeezelite-R2 one.

I installed AudioLinux 0.6 64 bit  and testing it now.

It works with my USB dac (Khadas Tone Board) but it does NOT load the Allo Dac by putting the usual config line in /boot/config.txt

dtoverlay=allo-boss-pcm512x-audio

Did anybody tried it?

Thanks

Thanks for your feedback.

i did not mention this explicitly, but it’s worth noting that the Allo Boss WAS working as expected with the previous version, Audiolinux 05 at 32 bit released at the beginning of January

The problem is the drivers the 64 bit version of audiolinux doesn´t have the drivers installed, i just install de 32 bit 06 version and it's working

In fact, I wrote an email to Piero and he confirmed that "all special overlays will not work in 64 bit version (audiolinux or not)".

The 06 64 bit is indeed working with my USB Khadas Tone Board, but I prefer to install the 32 bit version and keep more flexibility in the devices I can use.

Quoting myself.... I confirm that with AudioLinux 0.6 32 bit also the Allo Boss works as expected using the "/boot/ config.txt" line

dtoverlay=allo-boss-pcm512x-audio
