  1. I'm using sparky usbridge(dietpi&allo gui system) connected to hydraz, then coax to dac. When playing pcm through squeezelite, everything is fine. But when it goes for dsd native output, dsd stream can not be detected by hydraz and of course no sound can be heard. Then I tried the dac's internal xmos interface. DSD native output goes fine. I guess this indicates incompletely supporting for sparky, right? So can someone help me get hydraz worked for native dsd playing on sparky?

  3. I have an issue with my Allo katana stack. The microcontroller is producing a strange noise...and no sound is being produced by katana stack. Used to work fine for about 8 months. Seems to be an heating issue which affected the controller. Anyone suggestions what to do?
  4. Hello everyone, I'm using Rasberry PI 3 B+ , Kali recloker and Piano 2.1. Sınce the new RPI 4 is out I was wondering If anybody tried to use RPI, Kali recloker and Piano 2.1 combination? If yes any problems? Thank you all...
  5. I am wanting to take the jumper out to separately power my Allo Usbridge.. I realize the rechargeable LifeP0 18650 x 4 work but what about a power bank like this? Could this be used? Could i use adapter for USB C to then power upper unit of Usbridge? Seems like this would be much easier than constantly recharging the 4 LifePo batteries. Possibly better more stable current delivery to Allo as well? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07KS5Z8GL/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A2KUZVNQ9LP7N9&psc=1 USB C Portable Charger RAVPower 20100mAh PD 3.0 45W Power Delivery Power Bank (USB-C Input, 45W Type-C Output) updated USB-C power Delivery charges almost all devices at a huge 45W output, highly compatible with the majority of Type-C devices, such as MacBook, MacBook Air, macbookpro etc. Parallel power: recharge 2 devices at a time with the USB A and USB C outputs; Please note that laptops can only be charged alone via the USB C port Ultra-fast recharge: get a full recharge in just 3.5 hours with the 30W USB C port, Micro-USB QC charges at 18W in just 6 hours, standard 2.4a charges in just 9.5 hours USB C Powerbank.docx
  6. Oops... I posted the following messages in the general DAC forum, not the Allo-specific one and was kindly directed here. So I'll just copy them here -- hopefully someone can help me! ----- posted 3/8, around 10pEST --- The Allo Boss I received today was described as the latest 1.2 version and the card clearly says "HW REV 1.5" as you can see in the picture I've attached.  I've plugged it onto my Raspberry Pi 3 B+ with the latest Volumio (v 2.555, 2/18/2019) and get NO sounds out of it. I've tried Jumper ON (plugged into either RPi OR Boss) and Jumper OFF (separate 5V 2.4a power supplies). Same result all three ways -- no sound. (I'm sure speakers & RCA cables are fine.) Is this a new board that isn't supported by Volumio yet? Please help!!!!
  7. Greetings - I've seen some mention that this is an "official" Allo support forum. Is that true? I see many post that are aging which have no response from either forum members or Allo. Before I post any issues I might have it would be nice to know that my time is well spent. Thanks, Vince

  9. Hello, first of all, I'd like to say i'm not fluent with english so please, try be comprehensive with me ? I have 2 questions. Both of them are related to my configuration which is based on : A Raspberry PI 3 B+ (1 board) An Isolator v1.2 card (1 board) A KATANA V1.2 DAC (3 board) That makes a 5 boards stacked in the selled by Allo acrylic Case. This config is powered by 2 external power (both 5V 3A : coming from Allo's website and bought with the Katana) : 1st one directly on the Isolator card (USB-C connector) 2nd one using USB-C connector on the card on top of the set-up (SparkOS Micro Controller) There is a 8GB sd Card on which I've installed Volumio. Volumio is reading audio files from a NFS share located on a NAS. I don't have issues to read FLAC files but I can't read AAC, SACD tracks inside ISO file, DSD tracks inside ISO file, DFF files. 1- Can you explain me how can I do that please ? I also realised that when I don't play any track, it's like if there were some "wind" in the room. I mean I can hear a noise which I don't hear if I switch my amplifier on another source (like CD player, turntable or TV). 2- Do I have to check or change anything to make it work normally ? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks a lot.
  10. Just received my plug & play DigiOne Signature player. Connected it to the network port, the SPDIF cable, then the clean side power (iFi power supply) and finally the dirty side (Allo 5v power supply). "DietPi" shows up in the Airplay list and I can select it (stays checked), but no sound is coming out. I am playing Tidal on my iPhone. The ALSA Output Stream Information says: "access: MMAP_INTERLEAVED | format: S16_LE | subformat: STD | channels: 2 | rate: 44100 (44100/1) | period_size: 256 | buffer_size: 131072". When I select my Apple TV using Airplay, I get sound. The configuration options in the Allo GUI look correct -- I didn't change anything -- eg, "allo-digione" is selected as the soundcard. Any help appreciated. settings:
  11. Hi, I downloaded Piano 2.1 F/W from GitHub and placed 44k 100Hz crossover .bin files into /lib/firmware/allo/piano/2.2 directory. Then I rebooted Pi and measured white noise spectrum but crossover filters did not work. Any suggestion will be appreciated. Kind regards, Takeshi
  12. Attempted an update on the Digione using the Update Now in the Web interface. It spun for hours then when rebooted unable to connect at all to the Web admin interface. I'm able to ping the device but nothing else. Allo support folks, please assist.
  13. I've been looking for a high value Roon endpoint for my Dynaudio Focus XD 200 active speakers. Decided to give the Allo a try and ordered one last Thursday 3/1. It shipped from Bangalore IN and arrived at my doorstep today. From opening the box to listening to music took me about 15 minutes. Easy setup with the Allo/Dietpi GUI interface. All you need is a modicum of networking knowledge and a web browser, voila. The Dynaudio's are configured for direct two cable playback master/slave. The Digione is connected to the Dynaudio with a Blue Jeans Coax SPDIF RCA/BNC cable. Playing a bit perfect FLAC 192/24 file sounds pretty darn fine. I'm impressed, particularly for such a high value component, it won't win any beauty contests but sounds very good. I was previously feeding the Dynaudio's wirelessly using the Dynaudio connect USB port fed by the SOTM SMS200. Direct connect wasn't possible with the SOTM because of the USB only output. I'm very, very pleased so far. Prior to the Dynaudio's my configuration was SOTM SMS200 > Ayre QB9 DSD DAC > Ayre AX7E amp > Focal 1007BE. I'm liking the current config significantly better, less audiophile hardware in my media room and a highly flexible great sounding system. Current config is Allo Digione > Dynaudio Focus XD 200. Two boxes, love it.
  14. Hello, I have been using usbridge for almost a year with my Auralic Polaris (usb-dac) and Squeezelite. I control my system with iPeng. Dietpi v6.6 was installed in the headless version. After the update to 6.8, there was an issue. Usbridge has no sound output. I reinstalled Dietpi with allo gui (version 6.6). Sound was back. After an update to 6.8 again no sound output. Does anyone know this behavior? What could be the reason? Thank you
  15. I have being using USBridge for a (+/-) month. USBridge is streaming music from a Synology NAS (1817+), through "Volumio" to a dCS Debussy DAC. After a while USBridge is losing connection to the network. If source of music is directly connected (usb) to the sparky, the playlist is run to its end. If source is the Synology music stops playing. The only solution is to reboot the system through the command line but it again for a very short lifecycle. Any idea for a possible solution?
  16. HI I just got allo boss kit with RPi and 5v adaptor then I setup volumio it work correctly but after I connected to amplifier there are loud noise so I cant even use it. please suggest me how to fix it. What I have done. (but noise still noticeable.) - Reboot RPi - Connect power adaptor between c-type(BOSS) and micro(RPi) - disassemble and reassemble it again. PS. I have another RPi connected to USB DAC and plugged into this amplifier has no noise at all. Thank you
  17. Hi Folks, I'm using a DigiOne Player from Allo with Volumio 2.x, and I'm wondering how you manage the power options ? After your listening, what are you doing ? shutdown the player ? if yes how you restart the player ? Suspend or other options .. By the way, after few tests I'm very happy with quality of this player. Thanks in advance.
  18. Hi, I own a Allo DigiOne Player for some hours, I'm really happy regarding the sound quality. I use Volumio included, but I wondering how it works the power management. When I shutdown the player from the volumio Interface how I can restart the player ? is there a WOL option ? a remote from USB ? an infrared remote ? ... Regards
  19. https://www.allo.com/sparky/usbridge.html#specs Thinking of going with this. Presently running audio straight from pc to ddc to dac. What benefits can I expect? Will JRiver's DLNA interface with this thing or do I need the Volumio software? Thanks. I am a newbie with these things. PS and how does it connect? Ethernet and usb to computer then out to ddc?
  20. Hi. I have had my Paul Pang USB v1 die on me in my CAPS music player - it now fails to be recognized on Win Server 2012 and 2016 after a few years' solid use. So I am looking at simple and inexpensive options now. 1) Have the card repaired (if possible) and keep on using my fine Nuforce U192s to "translate into" coax out. 2) Buy an Auralic Aries mini or a MicroRendu and keep on using my Nuforce U192s to "translate into" coax out. I have already had an Aralic Aries mini in the house, but I sold it on because I already had streaming capabilities enough in the house at the time (1) Paul Pang + Nuforce U192S ; 2) Esi [email protected] spdif out). 3) Build an Allo network streamer = network to coax out "converter" (no need for a DAC) Re option 3: How would I go about creating a streamer with SPDIF / coax out with the Allo Digione to feed my Audio Note Dac 3? Thanks. Kind regards, Peter
