Volumio for Raspberry PI with Experimental Real Time Kernel

Postby dominique-tanguy » Wed Dec 06 2017 16:31

I continue the comparisons.

First, I have more interruptions with the real time kernel than with the latest standard version of Volumio.

Then, I continue to identify a difference in Sound quality. It might be an illusion, but it is also the opinion of my wife. Quite strange...

Is this real time kernel version subjet to futur update?

I am also getting very strange results with this kernel, and I can't seem to be able to fine tune it in a way that the whole system is stable with a wide variety of devices.
So I will continue to do testing and release a new image when I've found a better balance

After having experienced many drop outs, I tried to modify buffer values and got a crash. Finally restarted 3 hours ago and works perfectly since, no drop-outs and super sound !

Michelangelo,

Do not give up!

Strangely, the same as the defaukt values, 8Mb, 10s, but different behaviour, as if despite displaying originally 8 Mb, the setup was in fact different...
