Khadas Tone Board

Postby UffeSW » Thu Mar 07 2019 17:21

Hi, may I ask the user Berry what settings he used to play music upsampled to 768 khz - 32 bit. I have asked on the khadas tone board forum why I can not play music at that resolution without severe distortion. So far they claim the tone board only supports 384 khz sample rate. I suspekt that is not true but somehow got broken with the new firmware, my version is v6.F2. Can you confirm this or am I just speculating.

Hi. I got the tone board yesterday. I'm only having problems with it as I posted at the khadas forum: https://forum.khadas.com/t/hardware-vol ... ?u=koozoop

Even with no mixer volume I have very-very low volume output. Firmware is 6f2.

UPDATE: https://forum.khadas.com/t/hardware-vol ... ?u=koozoop

I had to fresh install Volumio 2.555. Maybe something broke up after updating to 2.555 from previous version.

I tested with spdif input.
with resampling at 192 k sounds better than with usb. they are much cleaner. besides the brutefir plugin works great. according to me the raspberry is a bit limited. better i2s for it.

I am devoting many hours to this card because it is fascinating. I could see that in spdif the sound is more detailed and crystal clear than usb. listening in headphones for the moment. It would be nice to be able to make it work with i2s.I looked for a little interface i2s on raspberry but I'm not sure to try.
anyone succeeded

I just got the Tone Board generic version this week and I have to say it completely blows away the Allo Boss DAC (original version) that I was using for the past year.
For my system and room at least the Boss had way too much bass, so I think the biggest improvement is just having a more balanced sound.

I would definitely recommend it to anybody looking for a good priced DAC and I was happy to see that Digi-Key now stocks them in Canada and the USA. Now I just need to find or make a case for the board...

I see that Khadas now lists Volumio as one of their new distributors so I suspect we'll hear something soon here too.
