Hi Phil,


Looks like incompatible bitrate (default is 16bit) with DAC:

shairport-sync.service - Shairport Sync - AirPlay Audio Receiver
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/shairport-sync.service; disabled; vendor preset: enabled)

IF you are using the Allo GUI, you can change this in the web interface. If not, simply run the command to change to S32 output:

sed -i '/output_format = "/c\output_format = "S32";' /usr/local/etc/shairport-sync.conf
dietpi-services restart


Hi Dan

Perfect !

I was a bit doubtful… I saw 32 bits several times through software but DeqX is only communicating on 24 bits. And I think I unsuccessfully tested this setup with Allo Web distro. However, I installed back the DietPi distro 2 days ago and tested this parameter with success.

Thanks very much !

Hi Dan

I am about to acquire an Allo Digi One signature with the Allo + Dietpi. Can I check something please. I am planning to use it for Roon but also Spotify (plugin). If I also install the EQ plugin, will things work or will there be a conflict with Roon?
In other words, will Roon bypass the EQ Plugin without issue?

(Vincent Kennedy) #208 @rahulkc just attempted to purchase a usbridge from your website and when I added it to my cart I received this message: " 1. There is no stock available for this selection / item. Please choose something else, or come back soon to check availability."

Do you know when these are going to be back in stock? I am fairly certain that I am not going to go back to your site every day to see if I can make a purchase. I was really surprised I wasn’t asked if I wanted to be notified when they were back in stock.

How do I go about getting the lcd screen attached to show what is being played via Roon/Spotify/UPnP Player? Right now all I am seeing is boot screen.
