Yes, but more importantly Raspberry Pi running some distribution with a Linux Kernel. USB or SPDIF board.
This isn’t an issue but a request.
I’ve looked through the community and don’t find any details on the Buffer Size setting with regard to what it does. I realize, from a post Danny wrote, that this impacts different things at endpoint depending on the endpoint. For that reason, I’d like to see documentation prioritized:
- Linux Kernel + ALSA USB
- Linux Kernel + ALSA SPDIF
- ASIO and WASAPI
Why am I asking? Somewhat curiosity but primarily I’m trying to better understand why this setting has an effect on sound quality. In my setup it does, but I have no idea what it’s doing or why that would be. I know Danny, from the post I mentioned previously, doesn’t want to give too many details here because “BAD consequences from doing so, is just irresponsible”. I agree with the bad but not the irresponsible bit. If you’d like, message me privately and I’ll not disclose that conversation as well as taking full ownership of being the “irresponsible” party. I just really want to gain an understanding and I can’t without more detail. Thank you.
As an aside, I think leveraging the ability to adjust buffer size could be used as indication of network robustness for Roon. But, I’m speculating here and that’s not always healthy to do.
