Oh right. There are heaps of apps to use the RPI. But depends what you want to do, Bluetooth is handy too.Except you can cast pretty much any app to Chromecast Audio and pretty much no app to RPi.
On my Raspberry i use Ifi power X 5v.I heard from a famous audiophile youtuber today, that the audio USB output of the Raspberry Pi is very noisy.
I was a bit disappointed at first because this is exactly what I use to stream my music. But then I thought well I can’t hear any noise so why worry, right?
But now there’s this voice in my head... I’m listening to a noisy source. But am I? Is it scientifically proven that this is a ‘dirty’ source? He was also complaining about the power source for the Raspi. I’m using the standard wall plug but as an audiophile you should at least buy a PSU of course!
So what are you suggesting? Getting power filters, extra expensive cables etc but not listening to Hans who supports all that crap?On my Raspberry i use Ifi power X 5v.
And Ifi usb purifier 3
And Supra excalibur usb cable.
Connected to a Topping D90 MQA Dac
The sound got from good to just amazing with those tweaks.
My friend and I tested he's ifi streamer vs my setup.
We couldn't hear any difference at all.
Don't listen to Hans
If it's all about the voice in your head, then get an Intona USB 2.0 Isolator (the small version will do). It is an industrial device that is used in industry, medicine and measurement technology.So what are you suggesting?
