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...

Postby luis » Fri Aug 23 2019 22:53

Name: TAGA Harmony DA-300 V.3
Receiver: USB Receiver
DAC:high-resolution 32bit / 384kHz PCM, DSD USB-DAC (ESS Sabre32 Reference ES9018K2M with patented Time Domain Jitter Eliminator and SA9227 chip)
Async: YES
Working with Volumio:NO only PCM
Tested Versions and Platforms:Work perfect in Windows7 with drivers ASIO With Foobar2000
Harware Mixer on Volumio: YES
HW Mixer string: Look for hw mixer name on /etc/mpd.conf . Report this ONLY if you had to make manual adjustment to make it work.
Comments: It does not work in DSD mode, it goes to PCM and in DoP mode.
Is there any plugin to recognize me in native DSD mode?

Receiver:
DAC:
Async:
Working with Volumio: YES
Tested Versions and Platforms: 2.599 on Raspberry Pi 3 B/B+ (Tested both) and Raspberry Pi 7 inch touch screen
Harware Mixer on Volumio: No
HW Mixer string:
Comments: My whole set up is Raspberry Pi --> Schiit Wyrd --> Schiit Modi 3 --> Schiit Loki (via RCA) --> Bottlehead Crack --> Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 600 Ohm

It all works excellent, the volume control on Volumio does nothing no matter what it is set to, so I adjust the volume on the Crack, but not a big deal.
