I'm successfully running the Allo Katana V1.2 Player with "Sound Quality Output Stage" option: mounted on RPIB+; a stock 5.1V DC 2.5A USB Micro-B) supply to the RPI; an "audio" 5V 3A USB-C supply to the Katana MC. Compared to the Allo Boss, which I enjoyed very much, I hear much more detail. I'd like to make an upgrade to this setup, and it seems I have at least a couple of choices: install Allo's I2S Isolator; or improve one of the existing power supplies I'm using; or add a 3rd high-quality audio supply. Which of these options (or another, if I haven't considered it here), would yield the most benefit? If it's a new power supply, I would be grateful to be provided with links to an existing product. Thanks! Michael
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.
