My name is Paul, 51 years young and i live in the Netherlands.
Not a Volumio user yet…but one with questions…
I’m a hifinutter and not a person who knows computers.
At this moment my hifiset plays music only digital via streaming from a nas.
The contents of the nas are controlled via Albumplayer with ASIO for bitperfect playback.
This “bitperfect” is very important to me.
I’m almost ready to downsize and simplifying my streaming setup with a RPI or ALLO Sparky but definitely with the ALLO Kali reclocker.
My 1794 DDDAC NOS is fed now with music via usb (wave-io) and that is put into I2S signals which feeds my dac.
With de RPI, or Sparky, complemented with the Kali the usb is out of the equation because this setup gives me I2S directly.
Simpler, better sound quality.
My question is this;
If i’m not mistaken you claim to be bitperfect but i read that you implement digital volume control.
This means that the datastream is tempered with if i’m correct and please correct me if i’m wrong.
Is there a possibility to switch off this digital volume control and then can you guarantee me then that the signal path is bitperfect ?
Thanks in advance!
With regards, Paul
