Long-time listener, first-time caller (and a serial pest on many other audio forums out there!)
To the team at allo, congrats on the release of the USBRIDGE Signature!
I am considering purchasing one to replace my ageing Logitech Squeezebox Touch, which currently outputs digital audio to my DAC vis its USB connection.
I have two questions:
1. My DAC features the Amanero Combo 384 OEM USB board. Are there any known conflicts/issues/incompatibilities with the USBRIDGE Sig and the Amanero? And is there a preferred or compatible OS for the Amanero board, or can I simply choose which best suits my needs as an end user?
2. Apart from adding a Wifi USB dongle to the USBRIDGE Sig (probably the recommended Comfast unit), I will not be adding any other HATs/boards/extras. With this kind of setup, do you have an estimation of the maximum current draw and thus the amperage of the power supply?
I have two nice linear 5V power supplies in my system at the moment - a SBooster BOTW 5V 3A unit, and a Gieseler Audio 5V 1.5A unit powering the Squeezebox Touch. I note, of course, that the specs of the USBRIDGE quote 3A but I assumed this also included headroom to power attached USB devices.
I would prefer to use the Gieleser if I can, but I guess this depends on the current draw, particularly during boot-up.
I note the lovely Shanti PSU, but I only require a single 5V rail so this is overkill for my needs.
Any shared wisdom would be great!
