Hello everyone. This is my first post here. First off, thanks for all the hard work. This is an excellent player and this site has a ton of great support. Here is my issue.
I’ve been using release 1.4 on my Raspberry Pi B connected to an external hard drive outputting to a Schiit Modi DAC via USB with no real issues. I have some updating issues when connecting or disconnecting the hard drive but nothing I can’t get around. However my ultimate goal was to connect everything via NAS.
Last week I purchased a Pi B+ with the intent to use the old Pi B as a NAS running Rasbian. After much trial I was able to get everything all set up and flashed Volumio 1.55 onto my Pi B+ and was finally able to figure out how to get my NAS attached. Everything seems smoother and looks nicer from 1.4 to 1.55 however when playing audio, I get horribly distorted, metallic sounding audio. The issue is common to both my B and B+, I wanted to make sure it wasn’t hardware related so I tried both. I have confirmed all other hardware works (amp, DAC works when attached to my Windows PC) so it seems the issue is with the 1.55 software since going back to 1.4 plays correctly.
I would like to use 1.55 because it runs smoother, looks nicer, and generally seems to work better, however I need to get this audio output issue fixed. Has anyone else experienced this or are there any suggested fixes? Am I just missing something? Thanks in advance for the help.
