  1. Dear all, Due to the fact that the ALLO WEB GUI doesn't support any DietPi updates anymore. Please look for latest / actual IP address on Web GUI ALLO. Than start APPLE MAC OS terminal and type to access ssh ssh [email protected] ( in my case) password : dietpi after installing ssh make a choice in the DietPi menu or for software update type dietpi-update regards, Andreas
  2. Dear Volpone, Please read my latest post to Bassivus & Tintinablum, and the reaction of Bassivus. 👀
  3. Dear Bassivus & Tintinablum, Please read my reaction a bit more carefully! Price or price level isn't the issue. I was using approx.1,5 years the Allo Web GUI (especially for updating) to my satisfaction . Without any form of communication, the service related to the Allo Web Gui is stopped. Respectively the possibility of updating is no longer supported. That's the issue that I have mentioned. My feeling says when If it is no longer supported it might be a signal that something is going out of production respectively becomes obsolete. Hopefully I'm wrong. #
  4. Dear Volpone, In my opinion, it is not a good sign that a company like Allo does not have its own ALLO Web GUI updated by the DietPi -team. This indicates no interest / involvement with the product and little or no respect for their customers. The updating may be fairly easy when you have connected everything. However, in a headless (without keyboard) setup this is very awkward. By the way you accept Allo's behavior very easily. With the reference that another company has arranged much worse. This is a very awkward reasoning.You would almost..... think that you have some business interests. Long story short..... the Allo USbridge remains a hobby and computer freak product instead of a Consumer friendly solution.
  5. There are more bugs in the Allo Web GUI. ONE OF THE MAJOR SELLING POINTS OF THE ALLO USB BRIDGE is the use of the Allo GUI. The update of new versions of DietPi by means of the Allo Web Gui isn't working any longer. Apparently since version V6.11 version on-wards DIETPI update works...... only through ssh terminal / monitor +key board. Really clumsy. It seems that the Allo USBridge is not longer supported by Allo & DietPi !😩😡
  6. Dear Allo Team, DAMMIT, ONE OF THE MAJOR SELLING POINTS OF THE ALLO USB BRIDGE is the use of the Allo GUI. Especially If you use it as a headless solution between the DAC and the Network. Apparently you let this happen without any interference from the Allo company!? Strange behavior maybe you have to pay more to Mr. Fourdee respectively Daniel to grant this highly valued functionality within DietPi software approach. Or will the USB USB Bridge be discontinued??
  7. Dear Allo Team, I cannot update DietPi by means of Allo.Gui anymore. I am redirected to the DietPi page telling that I have to do it manually. That is very awkward, cumbersome without a connected monitor and keyboard on a headless device! Please reply why I cannot update by means of the Allo GUI? Best regards, Andreas Ps. Please see screen copies
  8. Hallo Jussy, Many thanks for your quick reply. You mean send 705.6/768k PCM there in DOP = max 256 DSD . Instead of DIRECT DSD due to the fact I have an iMac. Right? Best regards, Andreas
  9. Hallo Jussy, If running at DSD256 in DSD Direct mode the DAC cannot be used as Pre-Amp ? Is that correct or do misinterpret your post and the bulky manual too? How do you rank the RME ADI- 2 on your own stereo installation ? This compared with the list showed on yr web-page? What is money wise a good DSD DAC in terms of SQ?

    Hi Jussy, Many thanks for your extensive and very meaningful explanation. I have learned a lot.

    HQ Player

    Dear Jussi, I have two questions for upgrading my HQ-player system to handle DSD256 at least and preferably DSD512. I am using now a stand-alone headless Mac Mini I5 (2,6 GHz; late 2014) with 8GB memory for HQ-Player. I also have a Mac Mini I7 (2.3 GHz; late 2012) with 16 GB memory. At this moment I use an Allo UsBridge as NAA (based on DietPi 6.6) as input for my Teac UD 501 (Max. DSD 128). Do have the Mac Mini’s sufficient horsepower to use HQ-player with a new DSD DAC like Project ProJect Pre-Box S2 Digital? And if I decide to spent “some” more money the Chord QUTEST or the new TEAC UD 505? Is it possible to use on iMac (OS High Sierra) the DOP upscaling possibility to handle DSD 512 or is this limited nowadays to DSD 256?Ps. I am not sure if Native DSD is possible at all? And which SDM-filters can than be used for such an Apple config? If present Mac Mini don’t give the needed horsepower what are the minimum requirements within the Apple IMac IMac <=> Mini range? Please your advice. Very best regards Andreas
  12. Dear John, What happens if you don't use the AC safety ground in a wall outlet. The "third pin" so called the "earth" connection. Does dis help avoiding / help avoiding leakage? This very often the case in Europe especially the Netherlands. Not all houses or rooms especially on the upper floors do have an earth connection. . Ps. The polarity of the + / - poles has been checked/ changed by minimizing its residual ground currents. Very best regards,
  13. Just like the previous times a meaningless answer. Read the mails from me and many others better. Be ashamed of Allo & DietPi for this clumsy behavior.
  14. Dear @rahul_kc That's really outdated information. There is no instruction how to update from older versions ! Namely that you have to re-flash to V 6.0 due to the fact that a system update from v159 and older isn't not possible at all. Ps,. The Webpages/ links last updated by Fourdee dated 30-09-2017 etc... Stated recently on HQplayer Network Audio Adapter forum and referring to my earlier posts /questions to Allo. IMO Allo is extremely slow, very reluctant to give help or respond to customer questions on this CA forum and Roon Community. The support and software is too cumbersome and responsiveness a way too slow. The software is too much tinkering and certainly not customer-friendly. This is also due to the multitude of updates that I have had to install during the last 3-4 months. Started with version 156 and already on 6.4. These successive updates were certainly not error-free and hardly doable for non Linux experts. In addition, it all takes up too much time that you can use better to listen to music than to find out how to re-flash and install an EMMC card. In addition, the current documentation is absolutely inadequate. That is a missed opportunity and makes it less fun that the aforementioned childhood diseases have not yet been adequately remedied. Come on Allo this can be many times better........ Despite my complaints, the Allo UsBridge is a great device when it is finally set up properly. And it gives a very good USB signal in combination with the Uptone Regen and a Sbooster LPS together with the standard SMPS.
