Following this write up
i installed Voumio on a Gigabyte brix PC (amazon.de/GIGABYTE-GB-XM12-3 … abyte+brix) .
Base for the installation is a very lean debian distro, crunch bang.(crunchbang.org)
The output is converted to analogue by the Topping TP32 USB DAC+AMP (amazon.de/Topping-TA2024B-Di … hone+15Wx2)
The DAC is automatically detected by volumio as “TP32”.
It runs as preamp through the headphone jack.
My files are stored on a usb drive which is mounted to volume following the above mentioned writeup.
The amp is my good old LUA4545
Everything together looks quite nice.
Running on the PC the sound is very clear and detailed, but i have the impression, that it does not have the depth and bass as my UDOO Setup (volumio-lua4545-project-dac-usb-t696.html?hilit=LUA4545%20UDOO#p2597) produces.
But in direct comparison (switching the input channels on my amp with both setups attached) i am not sure anymore…
Nevertheless the PC gives a lot of opportunities due to its performance and disk memory which the raspy or udoo do not offer. I will start tuning the sound.
Maybe someone has an idea if the kernel could be tuned. Any comments will be appreciated.
