Oh i see

thanks

Dear Spockfish

I’m looking for Roon Ready Lan to i2S board.
By the way, products that are sold for commercial use do not look well. I thought Ropieee would be Lan to i2S through Rasbery Pi’s GPIO, right?

iancanada has some i2s DSD HATs for RPi on diyaudio.com

Thanks a lot

I tried to get it running with my DAM1021 Soekris r2r dac, that’s currently uses the anamero 384 but gave up. Might have another go one day.


(Steven Woo) #46

Oh

This Singxer C-1 DDC working well with Soekris all R2R Board(DIY, OEM)

Look at this on eBay - https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F122221601192

@SeaChange So this will work…??? I’m using a Vinshine R2R Reference DAC its a custom built unit of maybe less than 40 units made. cheap enough its worth a shot I guess.


(Steven Woo) #48

Vinshine R2R Reference DAC used Combo384 DDC

I know the person who made the DAC.
I bought a lot of them too.
The DAC was using the Soekris DIY R2R board
The Sinxger C-1 DDC is directly compatible with the Combo384

If you want to know about Sinxger C-1 DDC manufacturer, you can contact me

Dear Spockfish

May I request Ropieee image for ASUS Tinker board?
I think
It’s best matching for good sound

If you can
I can donation with my Audiophile community members

Thanks

Hi, I am having a similar issue. I have a Denafrips Terminator which has a Amanero384. From Roon, I do not see native DSD support. I only see DoP.

How do I find out which Amanero384 firmware it is running? I am able to log into Ropieee but I am not sure which log file to look at.

Thanks!

More info I can find. I have the latest version of Ropieee, look at the usb config, I am seeing this:

Hi, i’ve successfully updated AMANERO USB receiver to 1099c beta firmware (using my T+A DAC “service mode” and Amanero OEM tool).

1099c (beta) is very stable (PCM and DSD) from LINUX up to DSD256 native (non DoP).

Unfortunately no perfect solution yet for DSD512 from LINUX (so ASIO WIN only).
Confirmation still some glitches with last AMANERO beta FW (v2005).
see: https://github.com/lintweaker/xmos-native-dsd/issues/12


#54

@volpone , do you know how to tell what version my Amanero Combo384 has? from the vendor, it seems that it should be 1099c but I’d like to confirm from the actual usb info.


#55

@jmpsmash. I don’t know if it is possible. Sorry.
1099c OK for native DSD support for me up to DSD 256 from NAA, RoonBridge, SqueezeLite. I’m using ALLO USBridge / DietPi.


(Harry ten Berge) #56

This is not something which can be fixed with a patch (and besides that, RoPieee’s kernel is already patched for the Amanero chipset), but relies on the firmware of your device.

Contact your vendor to see if they have a firmware update available.


#57

@volpone, how do you update the Amanero firmware ? is it the tool listed in the Amanero website? are there instructions?


#58

Yes. I’ve dowloaded OEM Tool 117 listed in the Amanero Website.
Update procedure depends on DAC. With my T+A DAC8 DSD it is quite easy from a WIN PC using USB cable. What is your DAC ?


#59

I have a Denafrips Terminator.

Are all the images part of the firmware tool download? Are there risks to bricking the board?


#60

I presume OEM tool 117 gain access to Amanero firmware repository on-line

Yes … depending on procedure, with my DAC “service mode” there is some security
