It's in alpha stage and the reason is that it's the first time I based it on latest mainline kernel.

Please read carefully the release notes and especially the known issues/bugs section!
The update improves the sound quality. More details and faster response.

Thank you for your feedback.

Some annoying USB errors have disappeared from logs (and some occasional pops using one of my two dacs - Aune S16).

Although USB interrupts remain very high, it seems that the new kernel deals better with USB DACS and this might affect sound for devices that weren't a good combo with the older 3.x kernel.

However there's a lot of work to be done until I release an image considered stable for Archphile standards.

I am currently doing some tests with wavpack compressed dsd files and MPD. I have rebuilt archphile mpd packages with wavpack support and mpd is doing the job fine.

The next official archphile MPD packages will include wavpack support and let's hope that the community will adopt this nice compression codec the soonest possible!

BTW, I wrote an article about wavpack/dsf/MPD for anyone interested:

Hi Michael,

thanks for the answer. Buy the way given the fact that the C2 is a 64 bit device has Archphile for C2 the 64 Bit Version of brutefir on board?

MPD is compiled with pipe output and the default package (mpd-archphile) has a configuration sample in mpd.conf (at the end). Brutefir package is also installed so, feel free to experiment!

I had a really long time to visit the DIY forums... so hi to all!
After being a user of Archphile for some months now, after Michael released it for RPi3, I want to jump in here and say a big thanx for his effort.
I am using it with the Allo DigiOne and the sound is wonderful!
My main sound system computer I used before -Mac Mini running Audirvana plus and JRiver- remains switched off for quite a long time now...

I am considering to get a linear psu for the rpi but I am all itíll sceptical about the results.

Kudos tuxx... keep up the great work!!!!

Hi All,

New archphile convert here. Tried all the other rpi solutions, all of which gave me endless nuances. With archphile, it's like I'm full control. I can play all my files and audio quality is just amazing. I do have 1 question though. Could some kind soul please tell me how to add new webradio?

Hi freeplay,

thanks for your feedback!

Webradios are just pls files placed in:

/var/lib/mpd/music/webradio

You can access the path above with filezilla or a similar software and add your own file.

you can get the original pls files from this location:

recipe/webradio.tar.gz at master * archphile/recipe * GitHub

and have a look to see how the pls files are made.


PS. The majority of these PLS files were taken from an earlier version of Moodeaudio

PS.1. A new ympd bug causes the pls files to not appear in ympd web interface. I hope this will be resolved the soonest possible.
