Hi,

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

Code: Select all

aplay -l
cat /etc/asound.conf

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:

Code: Select all

speaker-test -c2
CTRL+C to cancel.

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.

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:

    Code: Select all

    dietpi-software uninstall 36
  • Install Shairport Sync:

    Code: Select all

    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:

    Code: Select all

    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:

    Code: Select all

    nano /usr/local/etc/shairport-sync.conf
    Change the Alsa section to reflect:

    Code: Select all

    alsa =
    {
            //mixer_control_name = "PCM";
    	output_format = "S32";
    	output_rate = 44100;
    };
    
    Save changes with CTRL+X, Y, enter
  • Restart Services with:

    Code: Select all

    dietpi-services restart
