2 years this week since launch and it is still one of the great undiscovered sound quality improvements to be discovered by many so called sound quality purists!!
Hard to believe but we can be glad that we are the lucky ones to discover this great player :-)

I was just wondering what the cheapest solution would be to run wtfplay. A notebook seems like the most convenient option. It seems it would not need to have too much processing power. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Depends how patient you are. Fredryck has stated he is working to port to a Odroid or similar SOC type system. This will hopefully provide a nice low power, low noise and low cost option.

No idea what the release date is though.

Modern low powered Intel (e.g. Atom, Celeron) processors should work fine so a decent notebook with a usb DAC should be fine. You'll need enough ram for your largest track of course.

Thanks.
Here is a short evaluation I wrote up on a French forum: Wtfplay
I also put the link on Computer Audiophile.

Kudos to the developer! Hope the future versions will not sacrifice SQ for the benefit of functionality....

Confirm.
I use an old, cheap Asus EEEPC netbook powered by Atom N450, 2 gB RAM, and it works fine.

Default i586 CPU

Hi, super noob question i guess.
I'm trying to install in an old thin client (maybe hp t5000, it's not in the original case so i don't know precisely). I think i've tried all the iso, same error:
"This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i586 CPU.
Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU."

Is there a solution or it's impossible to install on this device?

Regards, Marco.

I have tried to reproduce a similar system with my sparky board (running dietpi)
I have made a very simple script that does the following:
- deactivates the network interface
- stops various programs (those I typically use for audio, and the ssh server)
- mounts an SD card where I have my music files
- creates a ram disk and copies files to the ram disk
- plays file from the ram disk with aplay (and period/buffer settings)

Obviously I do not have a working ncurses interface to allow me to make and run the playlist.

Are there additional tunings that are included in wtfplay or is this basically what wtfplay is doing?

Default Test with DSD and FLAC files.. good

Thank you for your distribution.
With mi DAC named "iFi nano" the sound it's good.
I tested with DSD and FLAC files, with wtfplay-dsd command.

I hope you continue in this project....

Audiophile Greetings.
