  1. Also, make sure the SD card is inserted correctly.
  2. Yes. I thought the Shanti was much better than the stock SMPS.
  3. The Shanti is great powering the Digione Signature. I have it powering both clean and RPI power ports on the Digione Signature.
  4. Thanks very much, antonellocaroli! This is working great with a Digione Signature and this wifi adapter: https://chicagodist.com/products/long-range-wifi-usb-with-antenna-for-raspberry-pi. I couldn't get wifi working with the Digione Signature's built-in wifi (in the RPI). With a USBridge Signature/Digione Signature combo unit - the same adapter gives me choppy/stuttering music when in USB (USBridge Signature) mode, but works perfectly in SPDIF (Digione Signature) mode.
  5. I would try it via ssh. Since you have a mac, open up the Terminal app. ssh [email protected] password = raspiroot Once you're in, issue the gp-menu command. Then choose #3 (Choice of audio output). Since you're connecting to your DAC with USB, choose #2 (DAC USB). The system will reboot. When the system reboots, ssh in again. Issue the gp-menu command. Choose #1 (Players/Server). Choose #3 (networkaudiod). Choose 1 (to start/restart networkaudiod and stop other players). You should now be able to see the device in the HQPlayer settings. See below.
  6. I think Squeezelite-R2 started out as a branch of Squeezelite and had a few features that Squeezelite didn't have. But I think those features have since been incorporated into Squeezelite. See https://github.com/marcoc1712/squeezelite-R2/releases. It looks like Squeezelite is more current. From the versions in the current GentooPlayer: Squeezelite - Squeezelite v1.9.6-1198, Copyright 2012-2015 Adrian Smith, 2015-2019 Ralph Irving. Squeezelite-R2 - Squeezelite Copyright 2012-2015 Adrian Smith. this modified version (v1.8.4 (R2)), Copyright 2015 -2017 Marco Curti. I do think they sound a little different, but I can't say that one sounds "better" than the other. They both sound good to me. Maybe they sound different because one has been updated more recently, or because of the way they are compiled, etc. Antonellocarolli could probably add to this...
  7. I go back and forth between Squeezelite and Squeezelite-R2. Lately I have been using Squeezelite-R2 more. Just make sure that if you use Squeezelite, you set "Use FLAC Compression" to No (in Roon) for the device (hit Show Advanced to see this). With Squeezelite-R2 you don't have to do that (but I do it anyway).
  8. Good to know... Thanks. The default setting (with at least the 2 versions of piCorePlayer that I tried) is definitely ondemand.
  9. Doesn't the same device (CEM Solutions Pvt Ltd) show up when you boot with the GentooPlayer SD card? It should. Note the IP address and use it to ssh or access the web interface. For ssh - ssh [email protected] (password is raspiroot) For web interface - http://ipaddress:5000
  10. Yep. On a mac, LanScan is a nice app for showing the IP addresses of devices on your network.
  11. Does DSD128 work ok? The only thing I can think of to try in DietPi is to change the CPU Governor setting to Performance. You can do that in DietPi's web interface. Next, I guess, would be to try other recommended versions of DietPi (see which comes from Allo's website) and even a different OS that includes HQPlayer NAA. GentooPlayer has it. See http://gentooplayer.com. GentooPlayer has different kernels and profiles to try, so maybe you'd have to experiment to hopefully find something that works. What do the cores of your mac's CPU look like when it's stuttering? Activity Monitor, Window menu, CPU Usage (to check)... In HQPlayer settings, did you try different settings for the Multicore DSP option?
  12. What operating system are you running on the USBridge Signature?
  13. piCorePlayer - Ok, I just tried this (the latest AudioCore beta version) on the USBridge Signature. See https://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?110727-BETA-piCorePlayer6-0-0-PI4-support for download links. Quick notes from a quick tryout: 1) It was pretty cool how the image burned to an SD card in about 10 seconds... 2) It didn't sound as good to me as GentooPlayer. 3) I heard minor click/pop sounds (like static or dirt on vinyl), which I wasn't getting with GentooPlayer. When I changed the CPU Governor setting from ondemand (the default) to performance, the clicks/pops went away. See below. 4) I had to manually specify the Squeezelite output device.
  14. Some of the ramdisk modes include the files necessary for the web interface (4, 6, and 9 below); others don't (3, 5, 7, and 8). See below. Were you running mode 4, 6, or 9?

  15. These steps come from https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/67719/how-do-i-install-the-drivers-for-a-wifi-dongle-with-the-realtek-8812au-chipset-o. The key is MrEngman's install script. sudo wget http://www.fars-robotics.net/install-wifi -O /usr/bin/install-wifi sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/install-wifi sudo install-wifi sudo reboot When it reboots you should be able to scan for networks (in Moode's web interface), find your SSID, and enter the password.
