No sound from Spotify, Spotify Connect or Web Radio

Volumio Information

Volumio Version: 2.873
Hardware: RPi Zero
DAC: Allo Boss Mini

Hi there,

First post…be gentle!

Today I tried to stream from Spotify Connect, from Spotify via the Volumio app and also a web radio station but there was no sound from either my amp/speakers or headphone amp/headphones. Spotify is seeing the Pi and connecting to it from both my phone and laptop - it also playing sound from my phone when I disconnect from the Pi. It has worked previously so I’m not sure what the problem may be. I tried updating Volumio, rebooting the Pi and changing the RCA cable from Pi to amps but nothing has worked yet.

Can anyone suggest any other troubleshooting steps? Or perhaps suggest what the problem might be?


Hi nick, welcome to Volumio. :slight_smile:

First off you are trying too many things without seeing if you have the basics working. That’s a trouble-shooting nightmare.

Do a new reflash of the image and start up your clean system. Don’t install any plugins, but get your DAC setup correctly in the settings ‘Playback Options’, making sure that you have i2s selected and the appropriate DAC (not sure what options you are given). Reboot (after allowing 10 minutes or so after first boot), and see if you can play a web radio. If not, then …

would you share some system logs please?

Thanks for this - I may well have overcooked the TS! I’ll try your suggestions ASAP.
