Lets confirm system is configured for USB DAC. Please paste results (or take picture):

aplay -l
cat /etc/asound.conf

Looks good, should be functional.

Which squeezelite player are you using? I’ll try to replicate.

We also updated our Sparky Image to Stretch, includes kernel patch for DSD256/512 support. Might be worth giving that a go.

Also, try the speaker test, to ensure DAC is functional at basic level:

speaker-test -c2

Hi,thanks for your informations.I think i can not get sound from speaker,because it doesnnt see the diet pi on the player.How can i install this kernel to the allo sparky?

I am using squeezer on android.

Hi,

I was able to confirm with my Combo384, also failed to playback on another player “allconnect”.

Ran out of time today, I’ve made a note to investigate this over the next few days. I’ll update you when I can.

Thank you very much.

Hi,

Ran a test with:

  • Squeezelite installed on system
  • Combo384

Clients:

  • Roon = fine
  • Squeezer = Does not find device, even manual IP fails.

It could be a simple case that Squeezer is not compatible with our Squeezelite version.

Not a solution, but as an alternative setup:
Another option is to use "All Connect"and install ShairPort-Sync on the device.
I can confirm this setup is functional.

  • Remove Squeezelite:
dietpi-software uninstall 36
  • Install Shairport Sync:
dietpi-software install 37
  • Sep 04 17:17:19 DietPi shairport-sync[10701]: audio_alsa: Sample format 2 not available for device “default”: Invalid argument

Need to change the default output bitdepth to S32 for Combo384:

  • Copy and paste all into term:
cat << _EOF_ >  /usr/local/etc/shairport-sync.conf
general =
{
	name = "%H";
	interpolation = "soxr";
};

metadata =
{
	enabled = "yes";
	include_cover_art = "no";
	pipe_name = "/tmp/shairport-sync-metadata";
	pipe_timeout = 5000;
	socket_address = "226.0.0.1";
	socket_port = 5555;
	socket_msglength = 65000;
};

//Disable software mixer
	alsa =
{
//mixer_control_name = "PCM";
	output_format = "S32";
	output_rate = 44100;
};
_EOF_
  • Or, if no SSH:
nano /usr/local/etc/shairport-sync.conf

Change the Alsa section to reflect:

alsa =
{
        //mixer_control_name = "PCM";
	output_format = "S32";
	output_rate = 44100;
};

Save changes with CTRL+X, Y, enter

  • Restart Services with:
dietpi-services restart
