Very new to this posting malarkey. Not even sure if this is the correct bit of the board…
Recently found a use for my old RPi B (rev 2) by adding a £14 DAC from ebay “HIFI DAC Audio Sound Card Module I2S interface for Raspberry pi B Version”
which is apparently based on a PCM5102A/I2S interface. Soldered on the p5 header. Eventually linked to my Synology music library via NFS [cat 6 cable, GBe router/switch], and found the correct DAC driver (“hifiberry”) for Voumio 1.55. I understand PCs and ‘hi-fi’ well enough, but this hardware, Linux and networking was all a big learning curve…
Anyway it plays most formats very nicely - including FLAC up to 192khz (which is the highest I have). Listening via RCA into an old ARCAM 1 amp and Wharfedale speakers.
Trouble is, when playing DSD SACD sips [my own SACDs, ripped via a PS3 to ISO, then split] the playback stutters. This is on DSD direct. The DoP did not seem to help. Is the problem with DAC do we think, or the limitation of the Rpi B. The files are DST64 per foobar (which also sys “5645 kbs”).
Is there Rpi/DAC combination which definitely plays DSD64 without stutter?
