Comments: Sound quality excellent, occasion clicks and dropouts on 24/96k and 24/192k. Plays perfect on 24/352.8k
I had to increase the buffer size and buffer % to have listenable playback on 24/192k. It makes no sense to me that play back is much cleaner from 44.1kHz and 2X, 4X and 8X multiples files than it is off 48kHz and multiples files. Sound quality from Raspberry Pi 3/Volumio is much better than from my Mac Mini using the same DAC and speakers or headphones.
