  1. You could post a question to Jussi in the HQ Player thread at Software about this. Seems strange to me that changing mods impacts the pops, but I never tried changing them when I had pops. Randy
  2. I don't use roon, I wouldn't think it would matter though. It also seems like some dacs are worse than others for pops, but I thought mine was pretty susceptible to them FWIW, 256 is worse than 128 for pops. I don't run at 512.
  3. I'm pretty sure I'm still using what I said here https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/55235-gentooplayer/page/26/?tab=comments#comment-1020232 To get here, I started by listening to all the different kernels, and found the ones that had the fewest pops. Took notes to keep track of relative pops and subjective sound rating. Then, I picked the low pop kernel that I liked the sound of best, and then went through the profiles, and was able to find a profile that had no pops. EDIT: Its not as hard as it sounds. Maybe I judged sound pretty quickly, but pops were easy to judge in my setup.
  4. My dietpi config info here https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/vendor-s-bazaar/337859-shanti-dual-lps-5v-3a-5v-1-5a-92.html#post5963277 You might want to try the 7ec or 5ec mods at dsd256. Takes a high end PC, I7 or I9 at high clock speed. I never run 512 myself, current processors can't do 512 with the ec mods.
  5. Yes, I manually set CPU speed in dietpi and got rid of pops. I use hqp4, I'm only getting pops at 256. Gentooplayer supports naa as well as other players.
  6. You can try this software gentooplayer Link takes you to end of thread. In the last 5-10 pages, there is discussion of using this sw and eliminating the pops from usbridge sig I was able to get dietpi to be pop free, but I like gentooplayer better.
  7. Thanks for the instructions I tried this, and had some small pops. So I selected kernel 4 and Profile Select 4 (my previous selections), and no pops. Randy
  8. If you have a monitor connected, dietpi displays its ip address when it boots up. Did you see that?

    HQ Player

    Well if you go with embedded, you can use a usb stick with HQP OS on it, and boot from that when you want to run HQP. Then have a SSD with Linux for anything else. I started with Ubuntu/Embedded but I use HQP OS now and am very happy with it. They are both viewed as embedded versions, so same license covers them. Randy
  10. I go to the select kernel page, and select number 4. I don't know what that actually means in regards to your question. Randy
  11. Just wanted to update my status. Using the version downloaded a week ago, without the kernel change download. I decided I like the sound of kernel 4, with Profile Select 4, so that is what I've been using. Sounds really good, and no pops in my system. I did have some pops with kernel 4 without changing profile, but I tried the different profiles, though 4 sounded best, and it doesn't have pops Note that another reason I picked kernel 4 is that is only had a few pops with default profile. Some kernels have a lot more pops Randy
  12. Same here, I always use the actual ip address from my macbook and I can SSH and browser connect fine. Either connect a monitor to the Sig, or use your router or an ip sniffer program to get the ip address. Randy
  13. I ran into this when I was building I ran into this when I was building my hqp PC. I ended up using a 750 watt Cosair PS that had two atx12v connectors. Its overkill for my PC, but made the build easier, and its a nice supply. Otherwise, I found an adapter that lets you take another 12v power, probably pcie, and has a atx12v connector on the other end. Didn't save the link, but I know they are out there if you look. I also saw some builds where guys connected just one of those connectors, I guess it really depends how much power your processor is pulling.
  14. Looks like an announcement thread https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/26343-picoreplayer-picore-linux-raspberry-pi-squeezelite/?tab=comments#comment-490994 I know there are long threads about it at other forums, diyaudio being one.
  15. There are two holes next to the usb connector. You can solder into them to provide power.
