(Darius Matuliauskas) #121

Thanks Harry, I think I can live with DSD128. :slight_smile:

(Harry ten Berge) #122

I’m loving ropieee and Roon but there are times there are things on Spotify I’d like to listen to. Given that ropieee is built on Arch, all the Spotify connect packages don’t work. Count me in as wanting Spotify support in ropieee. I don’t want it through Roon directly, but just making my Rpi work as a Spotify connect destination. Any chance this will happen any time?

@spockfish Harry any more thoughts on the ability to provide a volume level control on the display? Or perhaps even something as simple as a -20db (or configurable value) mute button or both.
This would be very handy for units that are driving a DAC or AMP hat as sometimes hunting down a remote app to answer a phone call or when someone calls you etc can be rather inconvenient.

(Harry ten Berge) #128

This is one of the things that’s on my list. Recently I’ve got a DAC myself with volume control (acting as pre-amp) , so this makes sense.

Time though :wink:

Hi, congratulations, RoPieee is really an excellent product. Thank you. I would like to suggest a new feature: Display Album/Song info when playing a radio station. Currently Radio Paradise which is a great Station is casting in 44/16 Flac. It sounds really great on any HIFI system. However, I have to use their web interface to listen/ view what is currently playing. Is that possible and how can I help to make this happen?

I dont think Ropieee can help here as this as its down to how Radio is implemented in Roon itself and whether that metadata is available to them in the stream not Ropieee. Same goes for most internet radio via Roon it doesn’t get the metadata.

Please add support for the ApplePi DAC:

Let me know what info you need.

It has already been added to the rpi kernel. The overlay is avaialble here:


(Lloyd Borrett) #132

Suggestion for an improvement.

I sometimes get the Connection failure page coming up on my RPi display. But not all of the page content fits onto the display. On mine it finishes with…

For configuring RoPieee you can point your browser to

Suggest you remove some of the blank lines so that it can fit the next line on the display.


Would really like Native DSD for Simaudio Moon Dacs.

(Harry ten Berge) #134

That really depends on the device itself. Do you have one? connected over USB I presume?

(stephan wagner) #135

still allo usbridge support would be nice


Yes, Usb to Moon 350p, I just able to play DSD128 instead of DSD256. (DoP)

(Harry ten Berge) #137

Ok are you familiair with SSH? Then you can run some command so I can see if the DAC is capable of doing native DSD.


Yes, absolutely.

(Harry ten Berge) #139

ok. make sure your logged in as root (passwd: root), then run the following commands:

aplay -l


cat /proc/asound/card*/stream*

and finally a


If you give me that information I can quickly see if it is already advertising native DSD.
