I have exactly the same behaviour as yours regarding the volume level.

I would simply have preferred to set the volume at 50% for the initial connection (instead of 100%)

@Facel

This might be a way around it.

Go into alsamixer and adjust the level to your desired output. The volume 'should' decrease. After that you should be maxed at 50%.

This worked for me in one instance

Strange, now even the Amanero USB interface works. I guess its rare to be pissed that something works but in this case I don't want it to work. I want it to either be broke so I can fix it or at the very least allow me to break it so I can fix it.

Now I run a very spartan spotifyd.conf file

[spotifyd]
username = "blahblah"
password = "blahblahblah"
device = "default:CARD=DSD"
volume-control = "softvol"
device_name = "Bedroom"
bitrate = 320

The only difference in procedure is I powered the RPi off and once powered on I connected by my primary Spotify device ie my phone. Volume control worked, the only thing I can do is kill the output by commenting out the device line, other than that volume control always works.

Tested on Amanero and XMOS.....HATS never had a problem.

I'll keep testing and if something pops up or I catch that elusive Gremlin I'll let you know.

Okay I tested it three more times, all on boards that 100% did not work before ie Amanero USB.

After install, starting and enabling the service I used my primary Spotify device [my phone] to connect to Spotifyd. Each time it worked without a hitch.

Note: These were all fresh brand new OS and Spotifyd installs on three different micro SD cards using three different Rpi's, all using WiFi.

I'm pretty sure its sovled but I still would like to have someone verify.

I'm new to dietpi and I love it so mutch.

I like to try spotifyd too, because raspotify and "Spotify Connect Web" are not running very stable.


I tried to install it manually but I can't get sound out it with my Allo digione soundcard.


A simple integration in optimised software would be very great!! :P
