I was using NAA on a Pi 4 without issue. Wanted to use the Allo USBridgeSig to test sound quality of the Allo device. Now I’m getting random dropouts. Before I spend too much time troubleshooting this, @spockfish can you please look at log and tell what’s wrong? Thank you.
Signalyst doesn’t supply Pi 3 images anymore. Maybe this is the reason?
OK, update… I tried the latest Diet Pi with same results (actually, maybe, just a slight better result). I tried the Allo GUI version of the Diet Pi Software and that is just silence with the random pop of music (so way worse).
Allo has a specific USB driver for the signature. However, the latest module from their ftp site is for an older version of the kernel than what is shipping on the latest DietPi. Its unclear if the normal DietPi is using this driver.
Its unclear if RoPieee is using this driver.
Geentoo Player is using the driver but that software won’t do anything without a key (I emailed them, waiting to hear back).
The USBridge Sig should do DSD256 but for some reason mine only almost does it. At the end of the day, if I can’t solve this, I’ll just go back to the Pi 4 for now and start shopping for a new streamer (or try one of the CM4 → CM3 adapter boards if I can find a CM4).
But, this is a mystery I’d like to solve as it should work.
