Yes Pavel !, those of us who have conquered it would agree "a few minutes" but to a newcomer let us manage expectations and say perhaps 'an hour or two' :-)

I've an EMOTIVA XMC2 connected via USB to a Daphile NUC i3, it works well except when i try to play DSD or want to apply any resampling option such as BruteFIR.
I did not find any complain on EMOTIVA Forum regarding DSD
Can anyone tell me if this is related to the NUC or the PRE/PRO?

Learning how to copy OS image onto a flash drive, how to configure bios to boot from usb etc. does not seem a bad investment of time.

My Daphile is on a Celeron based Mini-PC, connected via USB to a Rotel RC-1570 Preamp (pure stereo).

BruteFIR works smoothlessly, while DSD playback is the only feature I could not get to work properly. The Rotel itself can't process DSD, so Daphile should convert to PCM, but no setting I tried did work.

My current workaround is converting DSD files to 88.2 PCM FLAC, which works fine and hardly costs more than a minute per album. So there's not much pressure to find a solution on this issue.

On a different subject @phofman.
You once gave me a link to a TPA3116 amp that could be modified for balanced input for noise. Have you seen any of the current ones that could be modded, I can't find one, or your mod, although I do remember how to do the mod.
Thanks

Thanks in advance and with best regards

Since I didn't get any reactions I would like to ask again. Did anyone tried something similar, like writing a like program to support arduino/TFT screen interaction? I don't have any trouble to write arduino programs and set the circuit up to simulate a PC Keyboard with it.
So on Daphile I'm also able to use these simulated keyboard commands on the shortcuts settings to play/pause etc.


What I'd like to do additionally is to show the currently playing Songtitle on the screen. Therefore I'd like to write a python programme which I'm able to convert into an .exe type.
I'm also able to send information via serial connection to my arduino. What I'm not able yet is to read currently playing song metadata in python and auto run .exe files on daphile OS.


Does anyone have some tips on how to do this?


Thanks in advance again

You would have to modify the daphile filesystem quite a lot is not easy to do (based on squashfs) and actively supported by daphile author.

These amps are discussed in detail in this huge thread TPA3116D2 Amp . I try to keep an eye on it, IMO the most recommended board currently is TPA3116D2 Amp . Since it has all four input caps in THT make, it should be trivial to convert the board to balanced input.

Thanks a lot phofman that gives me plenty of information for another system. The original one I modified on your advise is in use all the time.
Thanks again.
