I upgraded my Pi3B Volumio setup to an Asus Tinkerboard S, hoping for a cleaner sound via USB. The Pi3b used to happily talk to my Audiolab 8200CDQ via USB. Using a clean build of the latest tinkerboard distribution, volumio detects the “Audiolab 8200 Series” USB output and I can perform all the usual configuration via the GUI. However, anything I try to play is horribly distorted; I have tried several bit rates and sample rates and file types, including Spotify Connect. I have tried different buffer settings and enabled/disabled resampling, no change. Everything seems to play at 24 bit according to the 8200CDQ display, despite resampling being “off”.
Has anybody had any success getting this to work? I know @JohnW has been here many times before, surely it’s been resolved?
Many thanks for looking,
