Will there be a difference in powering the clean side by the battery pack vs. a powerbank with LIPO battery (attached to an outlet)?
@allo.com, help please!
My Allo DigiOne Signature is DEAD!
After charging the batteries my Signature does not play anymore. Neither with the battery pack nor with the power supply attached.
I can log in, audio zone is shown in roon. But when clicking play, the cursor stays at the beginning of the track and after a few seconds it moves to next track,…
As I guess it’s a hardware issue please let me know how to get a RMA# for a replacement.
Thanks a lot!
Did you make sure the + and - were connected correctly ?
Please contact our website for RMA
negative on springs as noted (despite other instruction on the battery pack itself)?
Where can I find the RMA link? Didn’t see it on allo.com?
I’d be curious if anyone has compared the Signature to a USBridge. I currently use a USBridge into my McIntosh C52 and wonder if I’d notice an overall improvement with the Signature.
I have both and to be honest I dont think i can really tell the difference into my dac but as always YMMV
Could you provide some context please?
Independent measurements of Signature
Hi Johan. What do you use (and how) to wire up the batteries 2 in series and 2 parallel?
We are using the battery pack from our website , standard wiring is 2 batteries in series and other 2 in parallel.
These batteries after charging have 3.6V, so is 7.2V short-term acceptable? an long-term 6,6V?
yeap , anything under 9V
Just installed my digione signature.
Shows up in Roon as networked.
When I press play a signalpath is made
But Roon doesn’t play and no output to the dac.
The alsa output stream information says;
access: RW_INTERLEAVED | format: S24_LE | subformat: STD | channels: 2 | rate: 44100 (44100/1) | period_size: 882 | buffer_size: 1764
Looks like a faulty digione board, or not? Any ideas.
Right, of course. Thanks Johan.
How do you power it ?
Dirty side with the supplied powersupply.
Clean side with a linear powersupply, and to be sure I also tried another supply.
Clean power first.
On the RPI the red led sometimes goes out for one or two seconds.
Well, have the signature working (Thanks Johan) And it really is good. Very good.
Before I used the coax out from a Node 2 into my smsl m8a Dac ( Linear power supply ) I really liked the result.
I have tried the USB-bridge which did not give a better sound than the above.
But the signature blows the node out of the water. Ihe clean side is fed by the same linear supply as the dac.
More depth and exactness to instruments… Reverb is much more refined, so space is much better defined.
So if I understand correctly, the Signature sounds ‘better’ than the USBridge (in your system)?
Yes.In janauary iI tried the UsBridge alongside the coax output of the node 2 into the same dac.
Couldn’t hear an improvement, Actually they sounded about the same.
The Signature really is a major improvement over the bluesound and the USBridge.
At last in my system
