Where is the trick for the sound?

I did an audio test (subjetive) with volumio, kodi, max2play, etc, and for my ears, volumio have the best sound…isn´t a big difference, but I can hear it …So, the question is…Where resides the quality of Volumio´s audio output? Is the player setup? The optimization of linux jessie distribution?

Is there really something different with Volumio, or is only a subjetive conclusion?

We’ve worked a lot to get the best sound possible. Basically by doing:

  • Least amount of process active
  • Pure alsa implementation
  • MPD bit perfect configuration and custom compiled
  • Some low level alsa tweaks

Those are the main areas where we intervened…

You did a GOOD work.
