Looking for options for NAA that would be capable of 1.536PCM as most seem to only do 768khz
I’ve heard from a few sources that the Pi4 is capable of it with the Holo May DAC but don’t know if that’s a great option since the Pi4 doesn’t have access to anything in the way of LPSU unless you’re really good with soldering which I am not.
If yu get the latter with E3950 CPU, you can also run HQPlayer OS on it and the upsampling by HQPlayer Embedded on the device itself, without need for a NAA. Gives you also optical networking capabilities.
Sorry, so with the fitlet option (it’s snazzy) with HQ Player embedded would it actually be doing the upsampling (that’s the way I read it) or is it just replacing a NAA by running its own HQ Player client or something to that effect? Sorry. I understand the point of a NAA but I don’t totally understand HQ player OS and embedded.
I understand like how you would load it and run it etc I just don’t know what it would have feature wise.
It is like HQPlayer Desktop, but headless. There’s no local graphical interface at all. You can remotely configure it using a web browser. HQPlayer Client can be used with it same way as with HQPlayer Desktop. In addition, it supports UPnP Renderer functionality.
OTOH, if you already have HQPlayer Desktop license it would be additional cost, so you could run just a NAA OS. And just try what you’d like about HQPlayer OS.
