Hi, i installed Volumio 2.729 onto my PI to replace a nov release (dont recollect number probably 2.6xx) and to my trained ears it sounds much “brighter” ie has a higher level of some upper midband sounds.
I am using PI 3B+ fitted Allo Bossmini into denon rcdm40dab, wharfedale diamond 10.1 (and sony sub often not turned on)
I listen to this system in my kitchen every day, invariably to radio paradise main mix, sometimes mellow, flac. with tone controls on flat.
I have a history with hifi as i used to sell linn, naim, quad, meridian etc, and now spend my time tweaking my 3 systems, although my kitchen setup has remained unchanged for months hence my surprise when it dawned on me that the sound was different last night (no alcohol involved)
I messaged my friend who has a similar setup in his kitchen and its also his impression that its “brighter” anybody else heard this?
