I use Volumio 2.13 (March 27th) with a Pi3, Allo Piano 2.1 (in 2.0 mode) and Kali reclocker and I have a question for the more experienced members.
I was expecting a lot of improvement from Kali after reading the ‘game changer’ reviews. However, I feel that the quality with Kali is worst than Piano alone. With Piano solo I get a room filling sound a bit like this: youtube.com/watch?v=LLI4H8l5qWw (but not as good)
With Kali there seems to be a bit more definition in the mids but I loose most of the bass and the overall picture is just flat like the difference you have between $20 earbuds vs $150 ones. (just to give you an image,I am sure you can find good $20 earbuds).
I think there might be a problem but I am not too sure what could be wrong.
Has anybody experienced worst quality with Kali than without?
I noticed that no matter the bit rate when using webradios (192, 256, etc.) in Volumio it sticks to 44.1Khz sampling frequency (&44.1Khz family) is that expected? Same from Tuneblade, stuck at 44.1Hkz. I listen to music from Youtube trough Tuneblade knowing it is not great for quality but it still sounds better without Kali than with…
Most of my files are FLAC 44.1Khz 16 or 24bits, so I downloaded samples files with different formats to make sure the various formats are working fine and it seems OK.
I am a newbie with Pi DAC so any suggestions for debug or sharing of experience is welcomed.
