    Newbie question. I bought an AVR but I'm not impressed by the sound. If I get a preamp then could I use my AVR solely as a power amp?

I also feel like the sound could be a lot better. Aside from that, I hate the Heos...

    I plan on getting a Pi 4 with a Topping E30 DAC. I want to add DSP to my setup so I can use REW for room correction. Is this possible with an E30?

    Hi everyone! I have a Pi 4 on the way and I have been looking at different DACs to use with it. Originally I was going to go with one of the HiFiBerry HAT DAC chips, but after looking into it I found that the external USB DACs are actually better quality for less money, and that with the Pi 4...

    Opinion? RPi4 with USB DACs

    One way the Pi4 is better than the Pi3 is the USB and Ethernet are now on separate buses. That was a problem for the Pi3 that created issues when using USB DACs. One popular solution was to use a SPDIF hat to feed a DAC and an excellent example of that was the Allo DigiOne Signature that Amir...

    [email protected] on Raspberry Pi (w/ Raspbian): 64-bit config

    I realize running BOINC distributed computing projects on a Raspberry Pi is not particularly exciting for most folks given the ppd values are so low.
