  1. Using Ambre with piCorePlayer here without any issues. As the Ambre has a regular Pi inside Installation is easy via SD Card. PiCore sound can further be improved by applying tweaks published by this guy here: https://soundcheck-audio.blogspot.com/2018/01/raspberry-pi-audio-engine-1-introduction.html?m=1 Most of the tweaks can be applied to the Ambre... Only downside of using it without Roon for me: the blue LED is continuously flashing. I got rid of it by using some black tape to cover it.
  2. The batteries of mine where worn out. After a email conversation with May of SOtM(thanks, very helpful) she send me a instruction for changing the batteries and pointed me to my local distributor (here in Germany). He could source me a set of new batteries. So yes, they can be exchanged. Cheers from Cologne!
  3. Hi, another question: Does anyone know whether the the mBPS-d2s battery psu is compatible with the sMS-200 or if there is a new psu on it's way. I currently use a sms-100 together with a mBPS-d2s and think the pus improves the performance significantly. Thanks & regards

When I use a Squeezebox Touch as source, immediately after boot competition the red light at the dac switches off, indicating that the dac receives a valid signal (even without playing music). With the SMS-100 I did not manage to get the red light switched off yet. As firedog suggested I might drop Jesus R a line… Regards
  7. Hi! Although being (a passive) forum member for about two years now this is my first post here… I apologize to ask for some assistance with a problem I have with a newly acquired SMS-100. I was running a Squeezebox Touch via a John Kenny USB-SPDIF Converter into a Metrum Octave Mk1 DAC with great results in my main system. As a a Squeezebox in a second system died, I decided to move the Touch from the main system to the second one and install a SMS-100 instead I was able to get in almost new condition second hand. The Problem: Although the SMS-100 "sees" the Converter ("combo 384 amaner
