HW Mixer string:
Comments:
DSD rendering is not working
EXTREME CARE MUST BE TAKEN as playing dsd stream result in harsh distorsion played very loud, volume control (soft and hard) being automatically set to 100% by volumio
TAKE CARE if your amp doesn't have any volume control !!!
No pb at all when playing other stream, volume control (hard and soft) work perfectly.
Some very useful functionnality : volume control setting at startup, maximum volume reachable (great for amp without volume control).
If no audio signal detected on USB-C then it will automatically play on Coax, as soon as it detects an audio signal on USB-C it will overrule the coax and play this : works perfectly
Spotify Connect : no sound from the Tone Board for the moment (hard/soft issue ?)
Volumio is correctly discovered by spotify app.
When selected, and music launched, nothing happen...
