Volumio Version: 2.861
Hardware: pi4b 8Go
DAC: allo boss
First of all I would like to congrats all the development team of this volumio2 distribution:
The UI is really very good and the plug-in concept works very well too.
As this kind of software is made for music, I’ve made some distribution comparison : I’ve tested Moode, picoreplayer, Runaudio.
All with different UI. but ALL are strongly better in bass management and DSD reproduction.
I don’t know why but the sound produce with volumino is Loudy, then the sound is less detailed than the others. too much confused bass and the DSD tracks are played at a very very low sound level.
The hardware setup is the same for all the distribution. No Eq, no material or software volume setup…
I’m using a vintage high end audiophile system and I have to say that I’ve spent more than 20 years of my life as a manager of high end consumer electronics famous brand company. So I’ve some music and electronics backgrounds helping to make some benchmarking in the field.
Honestly, I think volumio will be the best distribution without these poor sound quality problems encountered.
Hoping a feedback of someone about this and ready to help if needed !
