  1. I normally use large buffers when I can, as you pointed out its best not to over-commit and use too much. With the RaspberryPi it is easy to be to aggressive with settings. Your large buffer of 4g works great with the new RPi with 8G Ram. However with the 4G model a max of 2G or so should be used.
  2. Yes boating is very expensive...akin to throwing money into a hole in the water. But as a long time boat owner, I can say that boating provides a lifestyle that is unique and blissful beyond anything else. Its a whole different world out there on the water, being there makes you forget that it took $600 worth of gas for the weekend.
  3. Its been a long time, but Archphile is back !! 😃 Best thing is, its better than ever....MPD support by default, Squeezelite and Roon support. Wifi works great with the RPi no issues. Works with Rpi 2-4 Enjoying Archphile immensely

    Japanese greetings

    I'm guessing you're not Japanese.
  5. Orchid DAC is a non over-sampling, no digital filter, structured DAC. This tends to produce most realistic and natural sound. Orchid DAC is capable of up to 24bits/192kHz digital signal inputs yet remains driving legendary TDA1541A R-2R digital to analog output http://www.mhdtlab.com/Orchid.htm
  6. I've used and owned Roon for several years. Having gone back and forth to many different Audio Software I came back to Roon only because of two things: tight integration with Qobuz and its more reliable than all the other 'beta' software available...ie MoOde, Volumio and the usual suspects. Sound wise its no better than any other software available, in fact in my subjective opinion its a notch lower than MoOde and maybe two notches below RuneAudio in terms of sound quality only. I terms of eye-candy [waf] and reliability its way ahead of all others....so Roon it is.
  7. I have been living with the AlloUSBridge for quite some time now, 6+ months. I've used it with Ropieee, Volumio, Dietpi, PiCorePlayer and my own build of Arch Linux + RoonBridge. Each one given a far shot at winning me over ie for at least a month. I used my own library, Internet radio, and Qobuz via RoonBridge. I powered it with a linear regulated PS and used direct Ethernet to compare it with the RPi 3+ and RPi 4 also with the same Software end Ethernet connections. My system consists of all Audiogd Master components. Audiogd Master 7 Dac Audiogd Master 1 Pre Audi
  8. USBridge Sig was build using RPI compute module so from a software point of view, this will give you access to the latest kernels (way ahead of any competitor). The focus of the device is to lower the noise on USB bus. We chose an excellent USB hub IC (TI) and a separated Ethernet to USB Ic (Axis).
  9. Thank you and Zack.. for the great information
  10. Side question I have the Raspberry Pi compute module with the emmc, is there any way I can flash it using the USBridge or do I have to purchase another product to re-flash the emmc?
  11. Very interesting Just so I understand correctly. Balanced power still produces "Common Mode Noise"? You might have missed it, like you missed me posting the model of the iFi product. All of my front end components including the sources are plugged into a Balanced Line Transformer, which in turn receives regenerated clean power from the Audiogd HE-350. I know that in your opinion Audiogd does not make good products, but from my understanding balanced power resolves common more noise problems.
  12. Yes I kind of figured that since the USBridge was designed to be superior that it must be my gear that was the issue. Perhaps when I can afford a better LPS and better audio gear I can give the USBridge another go.... Thank you for the reply. 😊 Here are the specs for the iFi power
  13. Hi, Allo I have two on hand, one iFi USB power micro iUSB 3.0 -and- a LPS which uses an R-core PS [tests pretty stable] Only thing connected is: Power USB output Ethernet cable I didn't want to have any unnecessary variables contributing to the sound. Forgot to mention the power components; Furutech copper outlets Audiogd HE-350 Regenerative PS Professional Balanced Transformer All Power Cords are Duelund *Only the front end gets regenerated - balanced power [including the Rpi]* Amp plugged
  14. Interesting 'review' of sorts. It appears that only MoOde was actually used for any length of time. I have been living with the AlloUSBridge for quite some time now, 6+ months. I've used it with Ropieee, Volumio, Dietpi, PiCorePlayer and my own build of Arch Linux + RoonBridge. Each one given a far shot at winning me over ie for at least a month. I used my own library, Internet radio, and Qobuz via RoonBridge. I powered it with a linear regulated PS and used direct Ethernet to compare it with the RPi 3+ and RPi 4 also with the same Software end Ethernet connections.
  15. Hi Dynobot,

    Can you please bring up https://github.com/dynobot/Arch-Linux-Audio-RPi again?

    It's offline now (or you're using another url??)

    Thanks in advance,

    Vhond
