Hi Jürgen

do agree on going step by step while debugging. Wanted to start with first principle thinking and get the basics right. Some good news - i was able to get the xover rack to work with my creative 5.1 sound card. It works when i play the music file from the sbc, i just used some media player that was natively available.

not so good news, after i installed the shairpoint-sync...and do air play into the sbc, i can get sound from the headphone socket like before but not from the mutichannel ports of the sound card. So i know the issue is just with the sharipoint-sync and or its settings.

the distro i am using is Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic LXDE Desktop. Link below
ROCK64 Software Release - PINE64

i started doing some research on the shairpoint-sync; by default it is compiled with alsa as it engine. I thought, may be if i can compile it with pulse-audio then may be it may work. So i removed all the old files per the instruction, and re-compiled shairpoint-sync with pulse-audio. Unfortunately the same results. The xover rack works just fine when i play natively from the SBC but when i air-play into the SBC through shair-point thing break

there is some documentation on the shair-point....it has multiple configuration options. Unfortunately this is where my already very limited knowledge/ understanding goes for a toss. As always any help would be greatly appreciated. Happy to share/ provide any diagnostics or output if needed.

GitHub - mikebrady/shairport-sync: AirPlay audio player. Shairport Sync adds multi-room capability with Audio Synchronisation

my original compilation of shairpoint-sync
./configure --with-alsa --with-avahi --with-ssl=openssl --with-systemd --with-metadata
my revised compilation of shairpoint-sync
./configure --with-pa --with-avahi --with-ssl=openssl --with-systemd --with-metadata

The --with-systemd option makes me suspicious. Does shairpoint-sync run as a service?

If so I'd suggest to stop that service and to try to run it as the same user that you login to your desktop with.
