    pi_player: an application that extends the use of camilladsp to a fully functional preamp/streamer

    I've been testing a few displays because I can't order the front panel without finalizing which one. This was the first one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/224197366222 Its a 1.77" LCD with 160x128 pixels. I chose it because it is almost identical to the RME unit. It works well overall, only...

    pi_player: an application that extends the use of camilladsp to a fully functional preamp/streamer

    I made a case with Front Panel Express at exact dimensions of the RME half-rack units. It is unfortunately very expensive so your option seems good if there is broader interest.

    pi_player: an application that extends the use of camilladsp to a fully functional preamp/streamer

    A few pics and basic demo. I bought this remote off eBay since it had most buttons I was interested in, and it is what "inspired" the labels of the remote key mapping. https://github.com/itsikhefez/pi_player/blob/main/remote.py#L23 Tentative front panel, intention is to match aesthetics on top...

    pi_player: an application that extends the use of camilladsp to a fully functional preamp/streamer

    Posted originally in the RPi4 + CamillaDSP Tutorial. Thanks so much again to @mdsimon2 for starting that thread and providing detailed instructions on setting up an RPI with CamillaDSP. I have been working on a similar python app to what is discussed there, but with some additional features. It...

    RPi + CamillaDSP Tutorial

    I have been working on a similar python app to what @mdsimon2 provided here, but with some additional features. It supports any remote control with a basic TSOP38238 IR receiver, in additional to a physical knob with a rotary encoder. If you're using Squeezelite, you can change tracks and...

    RPi + CamillaDSP Tutorial

    I'm still ironing out the details of my RPI/CamillaDSP setup with the UCX-II, one thing here caught my eye @mdsimon2 is this an Ultralite specific issue? I've been swapping between TOSLINK and squeezelite and had not had any issues. Perhaps the UCX-II has a clock source setting per input? As...

    RPi + CamillaDSP Tutorial

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've built something similar in the past for piCorePlayer with a VFD display in a small box, but for this I'll try to match the form factor and layout of the RME device, so the units look somewhat consistent. I received the UCX-II a few weeks ago and now have...

    RPi + CamillaDSP Tutorial

    Thanks so much for the quick reply and confirming the UCX-II (and similar interfaces) can support both analog and streaming with the switch of configs. I currently do only have 2 channel floorstanding speakers, but have a subwoofer and would be eventually interested to integrate it. With the sub...

    RPi + CamillaDSP Tutorial

    I am going through this tutorial for the first time, thanks so much ! My current stack is Benchmark DAC3/LA4/AHB2, using piCorePlayer for streaming and 2 analog sources, but obviously no DSP capabilities and looking to implement DRC. I have a Motu M4 on hand that I use for other things so...

    Need help with room setup / REW / CamilleDSP

    Hi all, Lots of similar threads here but each room is different so starting another one for my room. Room is roughly 23 x 12 x 9 ft. It is a semi-dedicated room for audio and HT (front half is the system, back half has a few cabinets and a small table). When moving in, I purchased room...

    Topping A30Pro Review (Balanced Headphone Amp)

    I had a similar issue and it was just dead. I recommend try getting it fixed/replaced under warranty

    Integrated that can subjectively compete with Benchmark stack?

    I have built DIY line-level preamplifiers, many phono preamps, and a DAC in the past, maybe I should just build a custom preamp. Not sure if there any good OTS DAC modules these days that can compete

    Integrated that can subjectively compete with Benchmark stack?

    Yea M33 is missing 2 functionalities (USB-in is one) so won't work. Thanks for the tip on the Eam Lab Studio DA201. I found the Cyprus Pre-XR also has all the required functionality. Although I am a bit weary of their products because I always see cheap components in pictures of their internals.

    Integrated that can subjectively compete with Benchmark stack?

    To be clear, I purchased the amp second-hand from a dealer and I am still within the return window so opt to do that. I'll give Bryston a call but I am concerned that if I choose to keep it and try to repair it, I will be outside the return window if I'm still unhappy with the performance.

    Integrated that can subjectively compete with Benchmark stack?

    Looking at the Michi P5, seems like a perfect candidate if not overkill. It would replace the LA4/DAC3/Phono preamp & Streamer, and I would obviously use it with the AHB2. Besides the balanced output for the AHB2, it has mono outputs for subs and a line-out for the tape deck. Curious if there...

    Integrated that can subjectively compete with Benchmark stack?

    I'll try to answer multiple comments at once. An integrated amp with MM phono would reduce 2 power cords, a pair of XLR cables and a pair of RCA cables. It would turn 3 boxes into one, that could be put in a centralized location vs. the 3 boxes that are spread out and require longer wires...

    Integrated that can subjectively compete with Benchmark stack?

    My listening room is about 22x13x10 and is at the lower floor of my home, which is in a very quiet neighborhood. 3/4 walls are concrete and the room is reasonably treated with GIK acoustics panels. If nothing is playing you can "hear the silence" if you know what I mean. I guess I never realized...

    Integrated that can subjectively compete with Benchmark stack?

    OK thanks for the responses. Seems like I'll want to make another effort at organizing the components before looking elsewhere Only if it is quiet. With the Bryston I could tell the difference at low to moderate volumes. At higher volumes it didnt make a difference. And I'm sure that...

    To be accurate, its not the amount that bothers me but the visual mess around my media cabinet
