I have been running Roon/HQP3 on a Windows 10 computer. My DAC is a T+A DAC 8 DSD.
I also have a Raspberry Pi (with DiGI Berry Pro HAT) running RoPieeeXL. I used it for Spotify (via a separate DAC).
I want to use HQP4 to play both Roon and Spotify to the same DAC (the T+A DAC 8 DSD).
I just downloaded the trial version of HQ4.
- How should I connect the Raspberry Pi/DiGi Berry to the Windows computer? USB, Toslink, other?
- What settings should I use in HQP4? (see picture below of what I have so far, but I can’t get sound)
- What should I put under “URI” (on the first page of HQP4)?
Depends on where the wanted input is coming from…
Please see the HQPlayer Quick Start Guide:
I want to play Spotify from the Raspberry Pi/RoPieeeXL to HQP.
Then you should connect it via Toslink for example. And configure HQPlayer to use Toslink input of your HQPlayer machine as input device.
I have connected the Raspberry Pi/RoPieeeXL device via USB to my computer.
Under HQPlayer settings, I chose “ropieeexl: USB Audio Class 2”
Under IRL, I chose “audio:default/32000/2”
I get the following message when I try to listen to music from Spotify:
Any suggestions? Thanks!!
For many reasons that is not going to work. That USB Audio Class 2 thing won’t work on RoPieeeXL. In addition, the USB Audio Class 2 thing has never been tested in RasPi4 hardware in first place (theoretically it could work).
So you are trying to establish audio loopback from your computer to RasPi and back?
I am trying to stream Spotify using RasPi to HQPlayer (installed in Windows PC).
I want to have HQP process (upconvert) that stream and send it to my DAC (T+A DAC 8 DSD).
Then you need to use S/PDIF or other similar method to connect RasPi to the Windows PC.
