  1. Thanks for the feedback! Is it possible to control the dCS Network Bridge with a control point like the BubbleUPnP Android app or with the Linn Kazoo app? One of the reasons I prefer the Allo approach to the dCS one is that, on a RPi (or, on a RPi compute module), I can run the OS and the applications that I most trust. On the other hand, my wife would not be able to manage the current system alone and I would like to have a more straightforward backup solution. The dCS Network Bridge is expensive but seems a very solid device. How would you describe the differences between the dCS NB and the DigiOne Signature, assuming that you have listened to the two devices connected to the same DAC via SPDIF?
  2. Could you elaborate a bit on the comparison between dCS Network Bridge and USBridge Signature + DigiOne Signature? I am very interested in the dCS Network Bridge but it is not easy to demo a device in Germany. Thanks, nbpf
  3. Thanks, cleaning the cache does solve the problem.
  4. @antonellocaroli: yes, I am sure and I have reloaded the page many times. The problem is not GenTooPlayer but chromium! In Firefox everything works as expected. Sorry for the noise and thanks for your support!
  5. After gp-update the web interface is only reachable through the ip address, not the host name:
  6. I haven't changed my setup over the last year, the JS-2 is still powering the LPS-1.2 and the RPi side of the DigiOne Signature and the LPS-1.2 powers its clean side. I have meanwhile compared this setup with an ultraRendu + Mutec MC-3+ Smart Clock USB (with the ultraRendu powered by the JS-2) without being able to say that one sounded obviously better than the other. I do not know if I would be able to confirm the impressions reported in the post you quote today, perhaps I should try. I do not regret having bought the JS-2: it is a very versatile PSU and its build quality and design are great. In hindsight, I could perhaps have avoided buying the LPS-1.2 and instead used the JS-2 to power both the RPi and the clean side of the DigiOne Signature. I do not know how the Qutest and the ultraRendu react to different PSUs. If you can afford the JS-2, I would certainly recommend it. It is an expensive but rewarding device. If you are located in the US or in the UK, you might be able to borrow a unit for a home demo. In this case, please let us know your findings. Best, nbpf
  7. @antonellocaroli, @askat1988: I have now reinstalled 2.10 from scratch, updated to 2.11 and then setup my system (included upmpdcli.conf edits) in 2.11. Everything works now as expected. It is conceivable that the upmpdcli problems that I have reported in my previous posts might have to do with the fact that, in my previous attempt, I had first set up my system in 2.10 and then updated to 2.11. It is of course possible that I had done something wrong.

  8. Ok, then issue 2) is resolved. I still have the problem that upmpdcli is not visible in my network in 2.11. In 2.0 it works fine and I have not tried it in 2.10.
  9. 1) No, but I have manually set "friendlyname = UpMpd (rpi6 sala)" and "ohproductroom = UpMpd (rpi6 sala)" as I had done in 2.0 2) The problem is within 2.11. It seems that some other action (e.g. enabling upmpdcli or re-selecting a DAC) overwrites the cpufraqmax settings I'll try to flash the image again, restart from scratch and report my findings. Thanks for your support!
  10. I have upgraded GenTooPlayer (Raspberry 3B/3B+ (compatible Allo USBridge Sig.)) to 2.11 (from 2.10 via the "System H. GP-Version Update" web-interface menu) and ran into the following issues/regressions: 1) upmpdcli does not appear to work. The renderer is not seen in either Linn Kazoo and in the Bubble UPnP control app and I get a :2:src/mediaserver/cdplugins/streamproxy.cpp:477::Aproxy: MHD_start_daemon failed /var/log/upmpdcli.logerror upon restarting upmpdcli from the command line. 2) Some settings in "System G. TWK various" do not appear to be persistent or they appear to get overwritten by other settings. In particular, setting the cpumaxfreq to 1000MHz and force turbo to Enable are not persistent. I have now reverted to v2.0 that still works fine for me.
  11. How shall the difference with and without DigiOne be assessed if a system has only SPDIF inputs?
  12. I do not use Qobuz but if mConnect is not stable or if you do not like it, you should also be able to use Linn Kazoo (iOS, Android) and Bubble UPnP (only Android) to control the streaming of Qobuz contents to the USBridge Sig.

    I mean precisely what I have written in my original post!

    The difference is that the daido music server is a server whereas I am talking about a renderer with less than 0.5A power consumption!

    Exactly! A small, low-power box could rely on an external PSU and still use very high quality regulators and clocks internally. My RPi 3B+ running MPD and upmpdcli under GenToo Player requires max. 0.25A under load. All unused components are switched off: the USB bus (and thus also the Ethernet interface), the HDMI output, the internal sound card, bluetooth, etc. The DigiOne Signature attached to the RPi 3B+ requires additionally 0.1A. The whole system draws about 0.35A from the two 5V power supplies. One doesn't need much more for an endpoint, it would be nice to have such a system with very low noise PF clocks and components!
