You might want to checkout

Raspberry Pi, Berry NOS Dac and e.g. Rune Audio.

The Raspberry offers an easily accessible I2S header. There a several DACs out there that can be directly hooked up the Rasbperry PI.
And they pretty much all sound better then the SB Touch DAC.
The I2S drivers are available with RPI audio distros like volumio or Rune audio.

You'll also find other boards which are I2S ready such as UDOO, Cubietruck, Beaglebone black .... .
However. The RPI for sure is not the best board out there. The huge community support and available HW gadgets (HifiBerry,...) are IMO a huge advantage.

Not to forget. At 35$ it's really worth to give it a try.

Cheers

Thanks fir your reply Soundcheck!

Actually with edo only the dac is working but if I add tt3 I have buffer issue regardless which edo buffer option I am choosing.

But if I can have my dac working without edo it's even better.

How do you setup the port ID?

Well then do not deliberately reduce your buffers by installing a mod specifically doing that when that results in xruns for your DAC :-) You should increase them instead, to minimize the danger of xruns.

I setup 20000 as buffer in tt3 so it shouldn't be an issue and put Very Large buffer in EDO but the issue is still the same

EDO is using a different config file. It'll conflict with tt30.

As far as I can recall:

Once you have installed the EDO kernel, you can reinitialize without loosing that kernel. On the new install you can install tt30 without EDO.


Output device:

Connect the USB DAC and boot

Login and run:

cat /proc/asound/cards


You'll find your USB DAC listed at index 0,1 or 2

EG:

Code:
~$ cat /proc/asound/cards
 1 [USB            ]: USB-Audio - E-MU 0404 | USB
                      E-MU Systems, Inc. E-MU 0404 | USB at usb-0000:00:1a.0-1.4, high speed
In my case it is index 1. I could use "tt -o 1" to switch to USB.

In case it is "2". It's getting a bit complicated.

You'd need to relpace the existing "output" function with this:


Code:
output () {

killproc
 

grep '"hw:0' $FILE2 >/dev/null &&    DEV1='alsaPlaybackDevice="hw:0,0"'
grep '"hw:0' $FILE1 >/dev/null &&    DEV3='alsaPlaybackDevice = "hw:0,0"'
grep '"hw:1' $FILE2 >/dev/null &&    DEV1='alsaPlaybackDevice="hw:1,0"'
grep '"hw:1' $FILE1 >/dev/null &&    DEV3='alsaPlaybackDevice = "hw:1,0"'
grep '"hw:2' $FILE2 >/dev/null &&    DEV1='alsaPlaybackDevice="hw:2,0"'
grep '"hw:2' $FILE1 >/dev/null &&    DEV3='alsaPlaybackDevice = "hw:2,0"'
grep '"default' $FILE2 >/dev/null && DEV1='alsaPlaybackDevice="default"'
grep '"default' $FILE1 >/dev/null && DEV3='alsaPlaybackDevice = "default"'


case $1 in
 0) 
  DEV2='alsaPlaybackDevice="hw:0,0"'  # TXRX - digital
  DEV4='alsaPlaybackDevice = "hw:0,0"'
  sed -i "s#$DEV1#$DEV2#g" $FILE2
  sed -i "s#$DEV3#$DEV4#g" $FILE1
  echo "**Output device configuration changed"
  test -f $FILE6 && rm $FILE6
  ;;
 1) 
  DEV2='alsaPlaybackDevice="hw:1,0"'  
  DEV4='alsaPlaybackDevice = "hw:1,0"'
  sed -i "s#$DEV1#$DEV2#g" $FILE2
  sed -i "s#$DEV3#$DEV4#g" $FILE1
  echo "**Output device configuration changed"
  test -f $FILE6 && rm $FILE6
  ;; 
 2) 
  DEV2='alsaPlaybackDevice="hw:2,0"'  
  DEV4='alsaPlaybackDevice = "hw:2,0"'
  sed -i "s#$DEV1#$DEV2#g" $FILE2
  sed -i "s#$DEV3#$DEV4#g" $FILE1
  echo "**Output device configuration changed"
  test -f $FILE6 && rm $FILE6
  ;; 

  *)
   echo "**Wrong output option, try again"
   ;;
esac

}
Now you could also use "tt -o 2"

Cheers

Kann es sein das sich im Terminal die Befehle seit Yosemite 10.0 geändert haben. Meine SBT hat sich aufgehängt und ich will die Toolbox 3-1.0-LAN wieder mal installieren. Obwohl laut Liste die software im Downloads Ordner liegt bekomme ich immer die Fehlermeldung. No file or directory. LMS Version 7.9.0 /1414070955. ich hatte noch nie Probleme mit der Installation.

Wenn man den Klang durch die softwaremodifikation vom Klaus gewohnt ist, dann geht es ohne mod garnicht. Danke für die Hilfe

Default Yosmite 10.0 - SBT

Hi, ich wollte auf meiner SBT die Toolbox3-1.0-LAN installieren. Kann es sein das sich die Befehle im Terminal geändert haben. Obwohl laut Liste die Software im Downloads Ordner liegt, bekomme ich immer die Meldung no file or directory. Ich habe schon x-mal deinen mod installiert immer ohne Probleme, danke deiner guten Beschreibung. Ohne deinen mod macht mir die SBT keinen Spass, deswegen bin ich schon ziemlich genervt, danke für die Hilfe.

LMS 7.9.0/r1414070955
