Generally. agreements that are mutually beneficial will happen :-)

There is also the scenario where the other party chooses to violate the License, usually to avoid terms that require paying the License holder a fee.

There is nothing new about moOde licensing. Its a license model thats as old as the hills. The proprietary parts of moOde are subject to the Moode License terms. The Open Source parts are covered by the GPL.

Sorry, I thought I was reiterating and supporting your post, not disagreeing - two countries separated by a common language o.0

I agree, nothing unusual in your license at all, generous to a fault

- Volume control
- Resampling
- Volume normalization
- Replaygain
- EQ
- Crossfeed
- Crossfade

exactly the configuration which sounds best (to my ears)

As I said. Hifiberry wasn't capable of reliably go >192k for all their models from what's been communicated over here in the past.
384k support rather sneaked in by coincidence!
Not sure, if they're willing to take the risk by introducing these patches! They might face numerous complaints.

Good luck with HifiBerry.

However.

If you seriously intend to listen to DSD/DOP material at quality levels,
I'm not really sure if these entry-level HifiBerry devices are the right choice!
Thanks, Klaus, for your valued input. It seems you have done a lot of work on this, much respect.

Daniel at Hifiberry responded very quickly to my request and said he will look into patching the driver, so we will see what repercussions follow from that.

I would prefer to listen to my SACDs on my quality multichannel SACD player but my little boy tends to treat the shiny discs as toys The RPi running Moode has allowed me to hide things away and now I only have to worry about him wanting to grab the mobile phone while I'm lining up some tracks to play . . .

I also have a USB DAC that handles DoP and I have that connected at the moment, so I'm not too inconvenienced. It's a Topping D30 based on an XMOS/CS4398 implementation.

Which brings me to a request to our illustrious leader: Tim, are you able to add a profile for the D30 to the DAC list, please?

Thanks,
Richard

Is it possible to have a "Bit Perfect" button ?

With one mouse click it will be possible to turn off Volume control, Resampling, Volume normalization, Replaygain, EQ, Crossfeed and Crossfade.

It is not much work to make your player bitperfect. And donít you fiddle around until the sound is what you like?
Maybe a bitperfect indicator would be even nicer?

Accidentally pressing that for many DACs could result in blown speakers...

Oh, yes "bit perfect" indicator ( or ) with information "baloon" showing what should be turned off to reach it.

Hi Richard,

Sure, I can add that :-)

Hi,

It's an interesting idea. I'll have a look.

One challenge is that its not possible to know ahead of time whether the bit-depth and sample rate being sent to the audio device will actually be accepted by the device. For example MPD/ALSA may zero-pad the bit-depth or resample the rate to values the audio device accepts.

-Tim
