    HDMI streaming sticks as audio streamers or 44.1 to 48 kHz upsampling quality

    The most budget audio streamer option is an HDMI streaming stick. The cheapest of them fluctuates around $30. However, there is a problem. All known HDMI sticks upsample everything to 48kHz. Yes, connecting USB DAC to some of them is possible, but it complicates things and increases the price...

    Self-Calibrating DSP

    I was reading about this Sony streamer. Anyone measured or tried it? It has auto-calibration, which I assume is some measurement-PEQ process.

    RPi4 + Pi2AES alternative or off the shelf unit?

    I'm looking to set up a streamer in my living room in the not-so-distant future and have been looking into my options. The setup in the room hosts a Marantz NR1605 which powers my speakers and takes input from a HTPC and record player today. The streamer would most likely connect to the NR1605...

    Using the lattepanda as a streamer

    Hey guys I have gotten my hands on a pair of these SBCs and I was wondering if I can load Moode or PiCorePlayer on these. I know they are distros built specifically for the pi and was wondering if I could achieve the same streaming capabilities from one. If not, what can I do (using Ubuntu...

    Issue: Between tracks the DAC gives audible click and also a popping noise from speakers. Enough to ruin listening experience. Tried: Reverted back to using the AUX out and bypassing the DAC = works fine. Same issue if I use a different USB power source If I take the WiiM out the mix and use...

    What should I get to complete my stereo setup? Linton 85 + Pro-ject DC Evo + ???

    Hi all, Apologies if this is in the wrong forum, feel free to move if so. It's hard considering the question has to do with amps, streamers and turntables. It's also hard because I'm a bit of a noob. I'm currently trying to create a nice entry level-ish setup for the living room based around...
